About BrandilynRC

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).

  1. Some fantastic bands there… My favourites are: Queen, Madness, Meatloaf, Duran Duran and shockingly The Sex Pistols… I’m a child of the 70’s/80’s lol

  2. Tough question. Narrowed it down with great difficulty:
    Simon and Garfunkel
    Elvis Costello

    BTW, great choices from the reviewers. I think Christine and I could have an interesting conversation. 🙂

  3. This is too hard! Tomorrow my answer may be different. 😉

    The Avett Brothers
    Jason Isbell
    Vampire Weekend
    First Aid Kit
    Eddie from Ohio

  4. Wow…what a list. There are some bands I haven’t heard of on there. It’s kind of hard to pick just five so I just picked the five I’ve been obsessed with for the last month (in no particular order):

    The Killers
    Say Anything
    Alex Turner/Arctic Monkey
