SASSY Saturday

Hey there my lovelies!

Welcome back to another round of my montly blog meme „SASSY Saturday“!

How does it work? Well, that’s easy! 😉

All you have to do is to follow those three golden rules:

1. Credit the creator of this tag (The Sassy Library Fox) and link back. (so I can see all your amazing answers!)
2. Answer the 5 questions below!
3. AND enjoy doing the blog meme! 😛

„SASSY Saturday“ is planned to be a monthly meme but if you want to do it more often feel free to go for it! This meme was created to get to know other bloggers, their new obsessions and to reflect on your own last month! Above all it was created to have fun though! 😉 If you want you can also use the banner I created! This said let’s head to the good part:

S – Series you loved this month

First Kill: My Yoongi and I were actually watching another k-drama when we saw this drop on Netflix and we just couldn’t resist! *lol* I mean an f/f Romeo and Juliette retelling? We both wanted to watch this and decided to go for the first episode. Well, what can I say? Before we even knew it we were right smack in the middle of the series and had almost gone through the 8 episodes in no time. *lol* It was really good. Pretty gory at some parts but also super interesting. I loved the family dynamics so much and I hope for a second season!!!

Axie Oh – XOXO

I wanted to read „XOXO“ for ages and finally picked it up as a cozy comfort read and it was exactly that! I loved all the Korean expressions and the food that was mentioned in here and the love story was really cute and nice to read. I just wish there would have been even more of the love story? *lol* I dunno. I just wanted even more, I guess. XD

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Charlie Puth feat. Jung Kook – Left And Right

Okay, ever since BTS decided to take a break as a band I can’t keep up with their content anymore. *lol* Not that I’m complaining! I love that they all get a chance to express themselves now and that they don’t have to follow the typical boyband rules anymore. So yeah, I’ve been living my best life following all of my 7 boys and JK’s collabo with Charlie Puth was the first song that was released after their announcement. And wow, what a great song it is. I can’t get it out of my mind anymore because it’s such a catchy tune. Or to say it with the songs lyrics: „You take up every corner of my mind.“ *lol*

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That June was over so fast! Haha! Honestly, this was the biggest surprise ever! It was the first time in my adult life (and I’ve been working for years now!) I actually had 4 weeks vacation and they passed by so quickly I still don’t know where they went. *lol* But I guess in the end the only thing that matters is that really I enjoyed those four weeks and well, I enjoyed at least 3 of them (one out of those four was spent at home with my ill kid…) so I count that as a win! 😉

„F/F Recommendations“ by Elli @ AceReader

I always complain that there aren’t enough f/f romances to read and when I saw Elli’s post I was so happy because: YAY!!! Finally some great f/f recommendations I hadn’t known yet! So thank you Elli for sharing this post with us! It was amazing and my TBR grew once again. XD

S – Series you loved this month

Young Royals: It was a short series and easy to watch despite my busy May schedule. I really liked the idea of a LGBTQ+ main couple in the show but I really didn’t get all the comparisons with „Red, White & Royal Blue“ because quite honestly, the only thing those two have in common is a prince that falls for a boy. *lol* It was still good though and even though it was extremely awkward at times I bingewatched it in no time. XD

A – Author you discovered

Victoria Lee – The Fever King

Okay, not gonna lie, this book was such a huge surprise! I mean the plot already sounded right up my alley when I read it on the blurb but boy, I didn’t expect to get so obsessed with this! It was amazing and for a couple of days all I could think about were Dara and Noam and what would happen next! I just love those two so much and I can’t wait to read book two! ❤ (Though I’m pretty sure I’ll suffer once I find out even more about their background stories. T_T )

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home

I just love this song?! ❤ It’s such a catchy tune and my kid and I always listen to it and sing along. Plus it has something soothing and wholesome about it. XD I’m sure this song got out a long while ago but sometimes I discover new songs and then I’m addicted to them. *lol*

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

How fast time went by! I had my last day at work on the 31st (and yes, I went there until the bitter end and even handed over all my tasks and responsibilities.) I worked more than 10 years at this company and then it was over in the blink of an eye. That was really surprising but I’ve to go my own way now and it’s for the best. 🙂

Judging random fantasy book names by Alexia @ Right Writing Words

This was such a fun blog post and I really enjoyed to read about the plot ideas Alexia came up with. She had quite a lot of fun book titles as well. I mean „Giants Of The Stars“ sounds like an epic fantasy adventure, right? *lol* At least for me it does, Alexia’s plot idea was amazing too! XD

S – Series you loved this month

Daredevil

Can we just acknowledge how awesome the third season of Daredevil was? I loved and hated it at the same time. Fisk drove me mental with his mind games but boy did I love them!! *lol* Plus there were new characters that really mixed up things! (And this is an understatement) Matt had to go through a lot and there were quite some moments I was like: „OMG NO!!!“ The fighting scenes: Epic!!! Especially the one at the prison! I’m still in awe of that one! XD So yeah, I followed Matt Murdock’s trail of blood through the entire season. And I regret nothing. ;-P

Julie and the Panthoms

And here’s another series I got addicted to quickly. Julie and the Phantoms is such a great series! It made me laugh, it made me cry, it caused me to pull for Julie and her ghost band and there was so much heart in this series that I melted. XD The songs are all amazing and have a deep meaning and the joy Julie and her band feel when they are on stage? It’s palpable! They have fun and you can see it! Reminds me of my own band days! ❤ Plus for once I actually don’t have a favourite character because damn they are all great in their own way! 😀

A – Author you discovered

Alice Oseman! I know, I know, technically I already knew her, but I never read an actual book she wrote. I’ve been following her comic „Heartstopper“ for years but I never picked up one of her novels. Which I corrected this month. XD I just started to read „Radio Silence“ and I’m already intrigued by the two MCs. Frances and Aled are really two unique characters and I’m pretty sure I’ll get addicted to this pretty fast. 🙂

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Julie and the Phantoms – Wake Up

This was the first song they introduced in the series and I loved it immediately. Julie has such a great voice and the message of the song! Just beautiful! I think I might get the entire soundtrack because damn, the music is amazing! 🙂

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

I’m not gonna lie: 2020 was/and still is one of the worst years I ever had. I mean seriously: 2020 is so hard I could become a sculptor and sell my troubles as art. Aside from Covid-19 there happened so many bad things and some days I just want to stay in my bed and hide under my blanket. It was one of those days – I was at work and felt especially miserable – when one of my new colleagues brought me coffee. It was a small gesture but it was such a nice one and she even knew how I drink my coffee. I almost cried right there and then. Sometimes a little kindness goes a long way. ❤

Reading Romance While Demisexual @ The Quiet Pond

This was a really great blog post and I enjoyed reading through it! I loved that CW explained how it feels for her to be demi and how insta-love is something she can’t really relate to. And it kind of made me question myself because believe it or not every relationship I ever had started out as a friendship first and then (sometimes over years) developed into something more. I just need to build trust before I can be with someone. Don’t ask me if I’m demi or not, because I seriously don’t know. *lol* All I know is that CW’s post was some sort of thought-provoking impulse. Maybe it will provoke your thoughts too?! XD

Broken Heart Syndrome

They say,
With time
The pain goes away.
But
How much water has to flow?
How many mountains have to grow?
Before you can forget,
Your biggest regret?
Can’t wake from a nightmare
That’s the bitter truth,
You got old,
Can’t find your youth.

Standing at the river,
Staring at the sky,
One question on your lips: A silent
„Why?“

Every year
Water takes this rose,
Only me knows,
You’re the ashes in the sea,
This river will bring
My red roses to thee.

There are wounds
That cut too deep.
There are things
That hunt you in your sleep.
Some moments you can’t bring back.
Empty dots on a wooden map.
You can’t flee from your past,
Cause in your heart
You know
It will last and last.

Standing at the river,
Staring at the sky,
One question on your lips: A silent
„Why?“

Every year
Water takes this rose,
Only me knows,
You’re the ashes in the sea,
This river will bring
My red roses to thee.

What’s the point
On holding on to a cut line?
Yet you still can’t let go,
It’s not the right time,
It would feel like a crime.

The End

This is how it used to be,
The way things are meant…
Looking at a broken tree.
Was only searching for love,
Found thee.
For a while I got so much more,
Now I’m hollow
To my deepest core.

Where’s the reason to go on?
What are the lines for
My once perfect song?
All the footsteps are washed away,
Searching for them,
Can’t manage to find my way.

So many years spent alone.
Countless hours on an empty throne.
Lost my crown,
All on my own.
Died with every breath I took,
Take one last final look.
Time to close the pages
Of this empty book.

Where’s the reason to go on?
What are the lines for
My once perfect song?
All the footsteps are washed away,
Searching for them,
Can’t manage to find my way.

Wish…
Turn around.
Stay.
