It’s been almost three weeks now, but I still can’t wrap my brain around the release of evermore.
I haven’t fully recovered from the surprise release of folklore months ago, and now we have evermore too? Not only do I feel as if we’re undeserving of this incredible music, I’m surprised my heart survived listening to 15 new Taylor Swift songs. I’m completely in love with the new album and will be talking about how much I adore every song for the next decade or so- meaning, when I got tagged for the evermore book tag, participating in it was absolutely mandatory.
It warmed my heart so much to be tagged by Rhi, Aria, and Lauren for this tag, because I’ve loved talking about Taylor with all of them and it especially meant a lot that they still thought of me even though I haven’t posted on my blog in upwards of four months. Thank you so much you wonderful humans- please go read their posts and visit their lovely blogs. <33

Taylor Swift released a new album, and in conclusion, I am not okay.
I don’t exactly have the words to explain my happiness when I found out about the surprise release of Folklore, but I won’t lie, there were tears. Taylor Swift has been my favorite artist since her debut album released and I spent hours laying on the floor next to my CD player memorizing every song, and while I’ve loved everything she’s put out, this album has a special piece of my heart.
I could go on and on, but the lyrics (her best ever), storytelling, and genre (indie folk/soft pop/alternative?!) could not be more perfect. It’s genuinely my favorite album yet and!! I haven’t stopped listening to it or screaming about it since it released. So you can imagine my excitement when Ilsa created The Folklore Book Tag, and now I can talk about the album here while also talking about books!!
A major thank you to both Ilsa and Rhi for tagging me- I’ve loved talking about this album with both of them so far, so this was especially happy.🤍 I’m very much looking forward to talking about the songs, sharing my favorite lyrics at the end of each song, and tying them back to books using Ilsa’s prompts!! (Also, I will be using the graphics she created, so a thank you to her for that too.)

I have a love-hate relationship with August 2019.
Part of me loves it, because it has some summer memories attached to it, there are new Taylor Swift songs to obsess over, and I started watching a show that I now love. But the other half of me only associates this month with school starting, and that’s where the hate part comes in.
August was an odd month filled with a strange mixture of good and bad, so much so that I honestly can’t decide if I liked this month and am sad to see it go or if I disliked it and am glad it won’t be around for another year.
From somewhat reading, to somewhat blogging, to somewhat having summer vacation, to somewhat starting back at school, to somewhat confusing myself at this moment, August was interesting. Let’s recap it, shall we?

Two things I adore are Taylor Swift and books.
I also love participating in book tags, and while I’ve done my fair share of fun ones throughout the years…I’ve never created one! Today I’m breaking that trend by introducing the Wonderstruck Book Tag, a tag that combines my loves for Taylor Swift and books.✨
I’ll be using some of my favorite Taylor Swift songs (which there are a lot of XD) and then connecting them each to a prompt and book! That explanation sounded very confusing. But basically it’s just like a normal book tag would be?
I decided to call it Wonderstruck because that it’s a word I associate with Taylor Swift (she had a perfume named that) and it dates back to one of my favorite Taylor Swift eras, with the albums Speak Now and Fearless and it even reminds me a little of the 1989 vibes, which I LOVE.
I’m so excited, because I’ve never done something like this before, and though it probably won’t catch on, I know I’ll have fun creating it. 😉
