What I'm Loving Now

The holiday season is upon us and it's already exhausting! I swear I love this time of year and Christmas makes me beam like a 5 year old, but working retail during this time can really stress you out. Add in all my other hobbies (sewing, baking), a craft show, possibly getting my items into a local store (eee!), and Christmas shopping, I've become a walking zombie that lives on caffeine, preferably in peppermint mocha form, and Christmas music.

So what have I been loving recently (besides peppermint everything and Christmas music)...

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour

From Goodreads:
"Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip - and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar - especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory - but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way."

This book was really good and it will cause a lot of feels. You keep reading to find out more about Amy and Roger because the author just shares small details about each of their stories slowly in the writing. Also, the descriptive writing about the states they drive through, the landscapes they see, the places they visit - it set pleasant and vivid imagery in my brain. Each segment of the story includes a road trip music playlist and, oh boy, did it ever make me nostalgic for some bands - hellogoodbye, Passion Pit, Jack's Mannequin. 


So I heard a song on the radio and it was so catchy and I had to dance to it. The song was 'Cake By The Ocean' by DNCE aka Joe Jonas' new band. I cannot stop listening to it and dancing. It seems every 2 months a song will come out and I will become obsessed. This is my song. It's pretty much the only other thing I'm listening to besides Christmas music.
