Love is a Mix Tape

by: Rob Sheffield

In case you didn’t know, recently, I read Love is a Mix Tape.  This in a non-fiction book.  It is the true story of a music journalist, who loses his wife unexpectedly.  It is a beautiful. BEAUTIFUL book, and a review would not do it justice.  So, I am going to share some quotes from Rob Sheffield’s novel, and hope that you do yourself a favor and check it out, really soon!

 To Start Off, Some Snapshots.

These are just some pictures I took of quotes and passages I liked while reading.  I got my copy from the library, and so there are WAY MORE than I have here, but these are some favorites.

 Just his writing style, I thought it was so perfect and honest, and allows us to see him so vividly.  Up Next…

As I said, these are just a few!  The next two, I made into graphics, cuz I fell for them.. hard.

The Ones That I Love.

 I mean, come on.  How perfectly gorgeous!  And ESPECIALLY being a music lover, and a child of the 90’s!

Yup, maybe my favorite of the whole novel.  Breathtaking and true.

To Sum Up…

Non fiction is NOT my thing.  Its just not.  But Rob Sheffeild?  He can sway that. He is coming out with a new novel, this September!  I was lucky enough to get an ARC from Edelweiss and I hope it is as amazing as Love is a Mix Tape!

If you’re a music lover, or one who likes books about loss and grief, DEFINITELY give this a go!  It truly is wonderful!

  1. This sounds so good! I’m not a huge non-fiction reader either, but when a subject sticks out to me, I like to snatch that book up! So many great quotes here!

  2. Ahhhhhh I love all of these quotes, but especially the first one. It’s so sad, actually, but oh so true. It breaks my heart a little. (That’s just reality, I guess.) And I LOVE the last one as well, and the graphic you made <3 So pretty!

    • THANK YOU PUDDIN! THATS RIGHT, PUDDIN.

      I love this book. You got the FULL FANGIRLING the day I finished 😉

      And its true, that one is sad. But its wonderful in its own way.

  3. I adore the quote that says that every mix tape tells a story. I think that’s very true – playlists/mix tapes are made out of songs that tell a whole entire story, and I really hope that when I write something someday, I’ll have the perfect soundtrack to it!
