    Speak Now + (Mostly Romance) Novels, Part One

    I, for one, cannot wait for Taylor to get to the Speak Now and Red re-recordings, but I want her to follow her joy and her muse wherever it directs her so despite my anticipation, I will patiently wait for her to give me what I need. In the meantime, we have now reached the […]
