Music Monday {12}

Music Monday is a weekly post where you can share a song, a music video or anything musical related that you’re feeling awesome about that week. Here on What A Nerd Girl Says, I will almost always share a song that I’m super into that week and the music video, if any, that goes with it!

I feel like I really haven’t discovered any new music lately because I’m the kind of person that listens to the same music OVER and OVER again but I don’t think I’ve ever shared this song before and I super love it. I’m not a huge fan of Tyler Carter’s solo stuff outside of Issues but I super enjoy this song and have it on repeat all the time!

Book Review: Hope and Other Punch Lines by Julie Buxbaum

Abbi Hope Goldstein is like every other teenager, with a few smallish exceptions: her famous alter ego, Baby Hope, is the subject of internet memes, she has asthma, and sometimes people spontaneously burst into tears when they recognize her.

With the third season wrapping up with a bang (seriously, that cliffhanger was super unfair, guys!) just last month in June, The Bold Type is on my mind and I can’t help but thinking about it pretty much all the time and there’s a huge question that replays again and again and again – why is this show not watched more and talked about more?

Waiting on Wednesday {29}

Today’s Waiting on Wednesday post is the next book in Amy Spalding’s growing list of fantastic books. I love Amy’s novels, they’re always so so great but I am especially excited for this one as it is a story that is very near and dear to heart, something I’ve gone through in the past and something I can relate to, 100%. The days until this book releases in January are just way way too many…
