Weekly Round Up (10.16.11)

October 16, 2011

These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week, according to last.fm:

1. Elephant In The Room (Morgan Page Remix) by Richard Walters (Two of my current favourites brought together in one song! Amazing.)
2. All at Sea by Richard Walters
3. We Have Your Head by Richard Walters
4. Mecha Love by Hadouken!
5. Red Heart by Hey Rosetta!

iTunes|Starbucks Pick of the Week: Saw You First by Givers. I really like this song. It’s fun and upbeat, with the kind of singing that borders on whiny, but manages not to be annoying.

Library Loot is hosted by Claire at The Captive Reader and Marg at Reading Adventures.

Last week I picked up….. READATHON BOOKS! Hooray! I have one more to pick up from the library this week, and then I’m all set.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
French Milk
 by Lucy Knisley
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life
 by Bryan Lee O’Malley
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood

“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.

Finished:
Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

Posted:
I spent the weekend doing a Reviewathon: Day 1Day 2Day 3 & Plans for another

Currently Reading: Nothing – in between books!

Up Next: Probably What Happened to Serenity

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

    Hurray for finishing Shadow of the Wind! I hope you enjoyed it – I’m reading a book right now that reminds me a lot of it!

    I’ve watched the movie The LIttle Princess, but I’ve never read the book.

    Here is mine

    I’ve heard many good things about The Name of the Star. I hope that you enjoyed it. :)

    I’ll get to The Shadow of the Wind one day – it seems to be a permanent resident on my TBR.

    Happy reading!

    Oh that’s right – the Readathon! I am signed up for that! :D

    I’ve never read A Little Princess. I’ve thought about it but haven’t taken the plunge. My favorite read this week is Pirate King by Laurie R. King. This week I want to finish How to Party with a Killer Vampire by Penny Warner. Please come see what else I’m reading.

    Did you like Shadow of the Wind and A Little Princess? Two of my favourites. I hate that in between feeling when you can’t decide what’s next/

  17. October 17, 2011 8:19 am

    I love your read-a-thon stack! Now you have me seriously considering joining the event this weekend. Happy reading!

  18. October 17, 2011 1:41 pm

    I love looking at your listened to list. I almost always listen on shuffle, but the last two weeks my top songs have been Mr. Know It All by Kelly Clarkson and Love You Like a Love Song by Selena Gomez…I’ve been in a gigantic pop phase, lol.

    I might have to join the readathon this weekend, I don’t have anything scheduled so far and a weekend in sounds very nice at this point!

    Someday I’ll have to convince my DH to let me do a Readathon. Your reviewathon looks like it was helpful. Cut cartoon. :-) I hope your week has been good!
