Hello dear readers! I haven’t done a TTT in ages, but I really liked this week’s topic. It made me go through all the titles on my bookshelves, and then I got distracted for a couple of hours naturally. >__> Anyway, I randomly chose ten titles out of my favorites, recent reads, and some of my future reads, and I imagined a band, its members, genre, etc. It was fun, and because I’m a little bit extra, I decided to design a simple album cover for each of my bands. What can I say, quarantine takes its toll on my sanity. TBR’s Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and every Tuesday there is a different themed post of top 10 things.
Undead Girl Gang is a Horror Punk Rock band, like female Misfits. There are five girls in the band, led by the charismatic singer Lily Anderson, also known as Bat Babe. Their first, self-titled album just came out and broke all records. Their biggest fans collectively call themselves ZomBabez.

Thank you for your attention. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve done since the quarantine started? Are you well? I, as you can witness, am slightly off my rocker, not just because of the whole Covid thing, but because I incidentally quit smoking after 15 years just a couple of days before all this started. I was convinced I’ll be frolicking the fresh nature in parks with my new books (Bought with the money I saved from cigarettes!), just as the temperatures are rising enough to be warm, but not hot (My favorite temperature.), but alas. I’m not complaining though, I know this is horrible, and I hope you’re all well and safe at home, I’m just going a bit coocoo. I wasn’t the most social being before this, but I miss parties, concerts, my friends, wearing normal clothes. What do you miss the most, and what’s the first thing you’ll do after the crisis is over? Have a great week everyone and stay at home!
P.S. My design skills are better than this, I just couldn’t invest serious time into fake album covers.
