Monday Round Up (04.11.11)

April 10, 2011

These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week:

1. Shoelaces by The Submarines (I love the opening lines to this song. Sometimes I just listen to those on repeat.)
2. Dots On Maps by Say Hi
3. Brand New Low by Treble Charger
4. Each Coming Night by Iron & Wine
5. Journal of a Narcoleptic by Dan Mangan

It was a pretty mellow music week for me. Lots of new and old (Dan Mangan!) acoustic favourites. I picked up an iTunes download card from Starbucks last week, but I haven’t been able to listen to the song much yet. The pick was Beautiful Trash by Lanu (feat. Megan Washington). It’s a really fun little song and I’ll definitely be listening to it lots in the coming weeks.

“It’s Monday What Are You Reading” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (Illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia)
Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman

Wrapping Up March 2011
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Spring 2011 Read-a-thon Updates

Currently Reading: The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa

Up Next: Not a clue. As usual, just something from the TBR pile.

What are you reading and listening to? Did any new books find their way into your possession?

    As this week I was mostly writing for my projects, my list of finished books isn’t as bloated with homework.. Come see what I finished.

    Oh, I heard a lot about The Housekeeper and the Professor, it’s on my wishlist. Hope you enjoy it.

    Good to see you enjoyed the read-a-thon – I love all the food pictures in your post about it. I read a lot too and had great fun.

    I just read your review for Anna and the French Kiss. It is definitely on my TBR list. How did you like Mini Shopaholic? Both my daughter and I have been reading the serieis.

    I’m really digging your playlist this week! I recommend Stuck in Neutral weekly to boys who think they hate to read!!
