music for my soul





Songs that have always been there for me. Songs that I can listen to for hours, days, even weeks, on repeat. Songs that hold me steady when I feel as if I am going to float away.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

I love the trailer for this book. I don’t remember the book being so steamy though.


And I can’t wait for the next one to come out.


I’ve been thinking about this book recently because not only do I love it, but it inspired my most recent novel, which I just re-read for the first time in 9 months. Current plan will reflect my writing process: one play through of ‘The Cults’ will equal one editing session much as it did one writing session back in November when I wrote the first draft.
