#SongoftheDay: Jason Mraz's A Long Drive

Long drive, long night
The best night of my life, 
With you riding, your hand on my hand. 
The thought of arriving, kind of feels like, dying. 
I don’t want, to go home and be, alone. 
Could we, stay out? 
Could you, drive a little slower, don’t matter where we’re going, 
As long as I’m with you, we could take the long way. 
Chevy Nova, front seat, sofa, getting closer, to you. 
Drive a little slower; don’t matter where we’re going, 
As long as I’m with you, we could take the long way. 
Drive a little slower, not ready to go home, 
I’d rather stay with you. 
We could take the long way, to the country out of town. 
Let’s get lost; I don’t wanna be found. 
Let’s get away, now and be careful not to crash. 
There’s no defrost and we’re steaming the glass. 
You and the road have a generous shoulder 
We can pull over and say we took the long way. 
Headlights, not strobe lights, 
I can see you, but not quite. 
I can feel you inside; the timing is just right. 
For the moment, I don’t want to go home. 
Take the long way. 
Drive a little slower; don’t matter where we’re going. 
Take the long way. 
Drive a little slower; don’t matter where we going now. 
Take the long way 
Drive a little slower; not ready to go home. 
I’d rather stay with you. 
We can take the long way. 
Long drive, long night, 
The best night of my life.

Was trying to avoid doing this but who am I kidding, it's Robin Williams.

R.I.P you dear, dear man. 

Thank you for all the laughs and childhood memories. You made it better.

#NOWREADING Karina Cooper St. Croix #5 Engraved (SPOILERS)


Cherry St. Croix returns to the fog-ridden streets of Victorian London, where the balance of power threatens all that she loves.

I will not wither without laudanum. Sober and determined, I have chosen another way—alchemy, and the pursuit of wellness it embodies. My name is Cherry St. Croix, and though freedom is finally at my fingertips, I return to the blackened streets intent on righting the wrongs I'd left behind.

All is not well in London low. Caught in a war between gangs, men are torn limb from limb, and I am called on to ascertain how. The immoral Karakash Veil is no doubt involved, and Micajah Hawke, a prisoner in his own Menagerie, cannot soften the danger this time.

Armed with the alchemical arts I have learned, my ever present guardian, and what few friends are left to me, I embark on a campaign to rescue the ringmaster I cannot abandon, save the Brick Street Bakers from annihilation, and finally face that which frightens me the most—my own heart.


So, we left Cherry in the last book heading off to London with Maddie Ruth and her guardian/tutor Ashmore. Sobered up and armed with alchemy, she's headed off to save Hawke. 

The book was fast paced and full of action and creepy people. 

Though I'm intrigued by Hawke and Cherry, I'm not really sure I want them to be together, primarily because Hawke's a headcase and asshole extraordinaire. I'm not saying that he's incapable of love or sacrificing himself but damn, dude, REALLY? If you read this book and the last one, you'd get why I would think so. 

And btw, I'm still hard up on Cherry just realizing that Hawke had been protecting her all this time. Maybe it's the opium, maybe it's her own prejudice, maybe it's her denial on how she feels for Hawke but still, girl. 

The book doesn't really give you time to breathe and process, and Cherry gives one hell of an impression of the energizer bunny. She was SERIOUSLY determined to save Hawke. 

Ashmore was awesome, supportive and practically the white knight to Hawke's sort-of-villain.

I seriously want to burn the Menagerie into the ground. Glad people beat me to it. That place was creepy in the first place but at least not evil, it was a place where rules were scarce and darkness lurked around the corner but when Hawke was no longer the ringmaster, that place went to the pits. 

And I want to smack the Veil upside the head. 

I'm now really eager for the sixth book because now Ashmore and Hawke would exist in the same scene. Man, that would be so FUN.
