Thanks to Panic! at the Bookstore for tagging me in this fun music focused post! I love music as well as books & film so this tag really intrigued me. Everyone go check out Avi’s post over on their blog, it’s great!
The rules: Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating) then tag 10 others to do it as well.
Some absolute bangers came out of my shuffle!
Avi put her favourite lyrics of each song, so I’m going to do that too!
