18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

How to join in:

-You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads.  Some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.

-Make a separate post for the 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow on your blog.

-Copy the image above and place it at the top of your post.

-List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’

-Place your name and blog title in the linky over at RBtW's blog post  and the URL for a direct link to your post.

-Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back. It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!

-Contact Crystal at with any questions!

Question of the Week: Do you listen to music while writing reviews or do you need quiet?

Being as my blog title refers to my muse, you'd think that I'd listen to music, or something to help me write.

Nope. I find music when I am writing distracting -- I start to focus on the music and not the words. Apparently, I can walk and chew gum at the same time--but not write and listen to music.  Although...when listenting to music in my car, I do get ideas for my muse. Go figure. I'm a little ass backwards, but, meh--that's the story of my whole life.

Breaking Benjamin

Here are the bands that help me with my muse while in my car--

Avenged Sevenfold


30 Seconds To Mars

Now, what about you? Do you listen to music when writing? What helps you with your muse? DEETS, people!

Have a great weekend ~


  1. I need total quiet when I read but I love to listen to music when I write my reviews. I will have to check some of your faves out because I have not heard of all of them. LOVE Maroon 5 and Adam Levine!!! *sigh* LOL ;)


    1. Mariann- I just got done catching up with the beginning of this season's The Voice--LURVE IT> and hubby watched it with me. I had to keep my drooling to a minimum, lol.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. As much as I love music, I can't listen to it when writing :)
      Have a great weekend!

  2. My heart just did a little pitter-patter with Synn & Jared. lol I am the same way while listening to music in the car though. I think wow, that would make a great story and start thinking of one.
    While I'm at the computer though I usually have music playing.

    Thanks for joining in the Follow!

    1. Oh, Crystal---
      My heart and other things go ka-thud with A7X and the hawtness of Jared Leto...he is my porfile banner on my page profile for FB...LURVE him.
      Thanks for a great topic this week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Lets Get Romantical

    1. Amanda--thanks for the linky follow :)
      And I love music as well...can't get enough of those bands above.

  4. That's okay. I do listen to music but when I was younger I had the same problem. I think when I had to listen to kids music all day my mind seems to be soothed with mine by the end of the night.
    New Follower.
