#relivingmy20s #livemusic #toronto #thesix #teganandsara #acoustic "I always have a hard time with the second book in a series, I find a lot of the time they exist just to fill the gap between the beginning and the climactic end and often it seems to drag or nothing vital happens except for maybe one thing. I’m afraid this falls into that category." - ashley

"It was humbling to hear these moments from the mouths of the mothers, it put it all in perspective that one day long ago, these epic rock stars were just like anyone else - kids with a dream willing to take a big risk to make it come true, with parents who fueled that fire as opposed to stifled it. I'm not saying this is the secret lesson to success, but I'm sure it's not a bad place to start." - Ashley

#toronto #caliilove #goodvibesonly #kingstwest #thesix "There was something magical about this and I was quite swept away, but not for the reasons I anticipated. Sure, the world building was great and the characters were strong and interesting, but for once, I was mostly smitten with the growing relationship in the book as opposed to the rest of the elements. The relationship, that is, between the Falconer and her Falcon; Heiress Lady Amalia Cornaro and street smart Zaira." - Ashley
