Friday Book Club: J-Dub’s Review of “Room to Breathe” by Liz Talley ~ 4/9/21

I’m cooking with gas y’all. Every night I read myself to sleep. Such a wonderful way to relax, getting out of my head space. I am behind on my reviews but decided still one per Friday was sufficient. Unless it is #WATWB or kick off to #AtoZChallenge. Then I will skip completely. Sooner or later I will get all caught up and might have to skip a Friday or two since as much as I am reading again, I don’t read one book each week.

Blah, blah, blah … on with the main event!!

This was my Goodreads review:

Princess loses her crown

But gains the kingdom. Growing up isn’t for the faint of heart. A story of relationships, taking chances, and living an unplanned life. Everyone needs a little room to breathe.

Short, sweet, leaving ’em guessing. Haha!! No spoilers but a recommendation to read. I truly enjoyed storyline. I think I know people like this IRL. The setting was in Louisiana and Texas. Two of my favorite locales. I could hear the accent as I read the words.

Lemme let ya go. LOL.

As always more to come.

H: Idiom of the day ~ 4/9/21

Starts with H – Heads Will Roll

Jilly’s Take: Means someone is going to get punished.  Off with their heads!! Said the Queen of Hearts <3. In addition to Alice in Wonderland, I’m reminded of the Judas Priest song “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll”.  I love this song.  My rock roots are showing.  Rob Halford!!!  Voice of an angel with range for days.   

I went to school with the drummer for one of JPs spin off bands. Small world. Bobby came from a musical family. He played drums in our high school band first. I’m pretty sure most of the girls had a crush on him. Or maybe just me. Boy crazy girl – silly Jilly that I was before B tamed me. Hehe. I’m a nut.

The beginning of the video brings back awesome memories of concerts past. Crammed in shoulder to shoulder on the floor if lucky enough to get floor seats. The HemisFair Arena full to the rafters. What a venue! Sadly torn down. Music so loud you could feel it. Ears clogged and unable to hear well for days afterwards.

\m/ devil horns really meant to ward off bad juju. That hand signal was made popular by Ronnie James Dio who learned it from his grandma. Fun fact! Or urban legend. Now for the tunes!!
