Tune-In Tuesday (11)/Teaser Tuesday (8)

Tune in Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Ginger @ GReads so you should head on over and link up! It is a great way to bounce from blog to blog and discover what others are listening to! I love music but there is so much out there that I haven’t heard of before. That being said, feel free to leave a link to your Tune-In Tuesday post!

This week’s song has been a favorite of mine since 6th grade. To really understand why my love for this song came to be, I feel that I should share a certain story with you. Okay, picture me, an extremely awkward, shy, little 6th grader with one HUGE crush on a totally great guy. He was cute, nice, funny, and in my eyes, perfect. The only thing was, is he was a total rocker-guy. At this point in my life I was all about boy bands and country music so rock music had not been introduced to me. So in my attempt to seem more appealing to him I started listening to Banana 101.5, our areas “Rock Radio.” Every day when I’d get home from school I would turn that station on and do my homework while also paying close attention to all the rock songs. One particular day I heard a song that changed everything. Instead of listening to this music for some guy’s attention, I soon found myself listening to Flint’s Rock Radio Station because I actually liked their music. That is all thanks to a wonderful song titled “Scars” by a little band named Papa Roach. This song helped broaden my musical tastes so much! My ears are a little sensitive to really hardcore, rock metal, but anything close to the awesomeness of Papa Roach is just wonderful to me. Hope you enjoy!

p.s. To close out this little rendition of “Katelyn’s trip down memory lane,” I feel that I should state that I did not win the heart of said rocker-guy….which is okay because he is kind of freaky now!

Now for the Teaser Tuesday part of this post! This awesome meme is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Teaser Tuesday asks you to take the book you are reading, flip it to a random page, and share two sentences (no spoilers though!). Sounds easy enough, right? Well it is, plus it is a great way to see what others are reading!

This week I am currently reading to great novels! I recently received Between by Cyndi Tefft and The Childe by C.A. Kunz. I am really enjoying both of these books! Hope you like the teasers!

“I don’t know how much time we’ve got, but I love you this moment and I’ll love you forever. The angel promised that love would redeem me and I don’t know how, but I know that it will. So I will not count the days if you’ll promise me the same my love.”

Between by Cyndi Tefft, pg. 61 (e-book version)

“Get a grip Cat. First I have a scary as hell dream and now there’s a large bird that chases off dark figures. Next I bet I’ll start seeing werewolves and vampires.”

The Childe by C.A. Kunz, pg. 39

  1. HOLY CRAP I love Papa Roach! I am pretty sure this is one of the first songs that I picked for Tune In Tuesday. This has to be one of my very favorite songs of ALL time. I also think Jacoby Shaddix is super cute. That boy can totally pull of guy liner!

  2. Great song! A fav of mine too. I will admit, I have a weakness for rocker guys! I had a rocker crush or two in HS. Doesn’t work well when you’re the shyquietbookworm girl!

  3. Love that song! That was an awesome story. I’m sad to say I didn’t start listening to this music until 4 years ago, so i’m way behind on music. My husband laughs at me all the time because I find new to me songs that I love (and he’s like that’s been out for 10 yrs) lol.

    Love the teasers! I have Between to read also. The other book I’ll have to check out I haven’t heard anything about it.
