Afraid

There is a song out currently that I am obsessed with it.  Besides the awesome sound, I love the lyrics!  The song is called “Afraid” by The Neighbourhood.  Take a look at the lyrics.  If it bothers you, sorry for the language but I wanted to keep the words to the original.

“Afraid”

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place

Paid that money, fake that dummy, ache my tummy
On the fence, all the time
Paid junk honey, face so sunny, ain’t that funny
All my friends always lie to me
I know they’re thinking

You’re too mean, I don’t like you, fuck you anyway
You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs
It hurts but I won’t fight you
You suck anyway
You make me wanna die, right when I

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place [x3]
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Keep on dreaming, don’t stop breathing, fight those demons
Sell your soul, not your whole self
If they see you when you’re sleeping, make them leave it
And I can’t even see if it’s all there anymore so

You’re too mean, I don’t like you, fuck you anyway
You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs
It hurts but I won’t fight you
You suck anyway
You make me wanna die, right when I

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place [x3]
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Being me can only mean
Feeling scared to breathe
If you leave me then I’ll be afraid of everything
That makes me anxious, gives me patience, calms me down
Lets me face this, let me sleep, and when I wake up (I wake up, I wake up)
Let me be

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place [x3]
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might end up being me.

These words are quite powerful when you break them down.  I immediately think of individuals who have a harder time fitting in.  Our society tells us the uniqueness is new, fresh but the problem is society wants us to all be similar and follow certain roles, uniqueness is no longer unique.  However, not everyone is the same so where do they fit in?  When someone is uncomfortable in their own skin then they generate self doubt within themselves.  But the one thing that society does not push strongly is self love and self worth.  It makes me sad when I see little boys or little girls talk down to themselves about not being adequate or up to societies “standards” or even someone’s standards.  Now, you can argue that some pop singers or other celebrities are taking control and modeling self love by their actions but if that model is something sexual what message is that sending to young girls and young boys.  In order to not step on anyone’s toes, you can generate your own self love in whatever way you want but remember that self love is you and the view of yourself, but it is also how others see you love yourself.  Don’t let someone demand who you who are, don’t let someone take your place be your own place.  Love yourself and give yourself that self love and self worth you deserve.  Don’t be scared of yourself its just you and you’ve known yourself your whole life!

AH! I love music and it’s many messages we can get from it! ❤

The Dark Heroine: Autumn Rose

FINALLY!  I have finished it!

Autumn Rose (The Dark Heroine, #2)

Autumn Rose has the chance to save the world she loves. But how much will she have to sacrifice?

Autumn Rose lives in a sleepy seaside town, but buried deep under the surface of her quiet life are dark secrets. Her grandmother is dead, murdered eighteen months ago, and the vibrant London social scene in which she was brought up is a world away. Even worse, at her new school she is shunned and condemned––all because of the swirling marks on her skin that prevent her from blending in with the crowd.

Then the appearance at her school of a handsome young man—who has the same curious markings as Autumn—sends her world into turmoil. Suddenly the marks are deemed cool, and Autumn is thrust into the limelight. But her sudden popularity brings danger as her secrets threaten to come to light. And then there are her recurring dreams about a girl who is about to be seduced by a very dark prince . . . and Autumn must figure out how to save her before it is too late.” (amazon book bio)

I have been pondering how to blog about this book and I couldn’t quite figure it out so I’m just gonna start with this….I LOVED THIS BOOK! Abigail Gibbs is an amazing writer, I mean WOW! But let me elaborate…

After Dinner With A Vampire (found here> https://carolinebylinebookblog.wordpress.com/2014/03/04/the-dark-heroine-dinner-with-a-vampire/) I was eagerly hopeful of another amazing read and I was NOT disappointed.  This series is thick, deep, and complex.  The world that Gibbs has created is astounding.

The new heroine, Autumn is a couple years younger than Violet (from the first novel) but she packs a punch.  This book is darker emotionally than the first and full of so much emotion that I found my heart fluttering, sputtering, and skipping beats trying to keep up.

After Violet and Kasper, I was interested as to see who the love interest would be for this heroine and if I would like him as much.  But Autumn and Fallon are just as good.  They bring something new and different from Violet and Kasper.  But don’t worry Kasper and Violet reappear and readers will see a small amount of difference showing the characters further development as a couple.

Though the romance is just swell the action continues strong if not stronger so get ready.  Magic flies as Autumn makes her journey to becoming a stronger woman and making her stand as an individual while trying to save her world from war.

The plot has indeed thickened! And I CAN NOT WAIT for the next heroine book to be released.  But luckily there are like 7 or 9 heroines so I have many to look forward to and so do you 🙂
