My Favorite Things

Yet another feature I've wanted to start forever.
The idea probably came along around the holidays or my birthday (same difference, they're within a month of each other) when someone gave me the "I don't know what you like and don't know what to get you." They also threw out a "I mean a real store" when I said bookstore to their question about gift cards.

So I decided to make a list, not entirely for them but for myself. Kind of a "What do my likes say about" type of thing.

Well one thing they might not say about me; but I've mentioned before: I can be lazy.

As proven now in which I share my top ten post from last week.

I give you ten of my favorite songs:

Song(s) of the Moment [9/27}

Songs of the Moment is a bi-monthly feature I started where I pick a song that represents the week, day or month; that fits with a moment I recently had. Or that's been on repeat.

There's a reason I've had this song running through my head this past week; one that I won't be sharing. Sorry.
Let's just say that whatever the reason it hit me so hard that it made me think of this song.

A lot.

The Toadhouse Trilogy by Jess Lourey - Book Review*

The Toadhouse Trilogy (Book #1)The Toadhouse Trilogy by Jess Lourey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published July 17th 2012 by Toadhouse Books

Aine (pronounced "Aw-nee") believes herself to be a regular teenager in 1930s Alabama, but when a blue-eyed monster named Biblos attacks, she discovers that the reclusive woman raising her isn't really her grandmother and that she's been living inside a book for the past five years. With her blind brother, Spenser, she flees the pages of the novel she's called home, one terrifying step ahead of Biblos' black magic. Her only chance at survival lies in beating him to the three objects that he desires more than life.
As she undertakes her strange and dangerous odyssey, Aine must choose between a family she doesn't remember and her growing attraction to a mysterious young man named Gilgamesh. Only through treacherous adventures into The Time Machine, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Tale of Two Cities, and the epic Indian saga The Ramayana will she learn her true heritage and restore the balance of the worlds... if she can stay alive.

Ten Songs I Love

It's been a year since I've really listened to audiobooks; mainly I listened while working on projects in class. But I finished that class, so the number of books I've listened to has dropped. Probably taking the total number of books all together. I made a list of audiobooks I love; number one Libba Bray's Beauty Queens.

Then I realized that besides Beauty Queens I don't care enough to share the rest. Except maybe Harry Potter, Jim Dale's voice is very soothing. So I decided to do some of my favorite songs in hopes that it encourages me to continue with a list I started at the end of last year of 100 of my favorite songs.
I'm currently around 30.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Something wonderful happened last night; I finished a novel.

Today marks a month since I left for Spain and saying I can't believe it would be an understatement. I'm trying not to think too much about it. The point of that tidbit was to point out that I hadn't been reading much before or since.
Last read novel was sometime early August. Very early.
