Weekly Round Up (01.08.12)

January 8, 2012

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

1. Carwars by Funeral Party
2. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) by Gotye (have you seen this lovely cover? Or this mind blowing one?)
3. Shuffle by Bombay Bicycle Club
4. Lights Out, Words Gone by Bombay Bicycle Club
5. Beg (Bonus Track) by Bombay Bicycle Club

Starbucks | iTunes Pick of the Week: The Sound of Your Life by Jason Bajada. This song was very quickly added to my Mellow playlist (that I mostly listen to while reading). It’s a lovely little song along the lines of William Fitzsimmons or Iron & Wine.

“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.

I haven’t done one of these posts since the middle of December (which I’ve just realized was dated as November in the title – whoops), so this is what you might have missed since then.

Finished:
Will Grayson Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
The Magician’s Nephew by CS Lewis

    How are you liking A Ruby in the Stone? The tv movie that was made a few years back was enjoyable, but I’ve not tried the books for this series.

    I’m fixing to start Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close this week as well. Magician’s Nephew was fun. I read it after the recent Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe movie and got great joy imagining Tilda Swinton with the carriage

    Hi, I’m a new follower! *waves* Found you via a LibraryThing review.

    It’s strange, I was thinking about rereading the Narnia books just last week. The film was on TV and it was awful, so it kind of made me miss the proper versions. I know I’ve read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe hundreds of times but I can barely remember the others.

    I have Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close on my TBR – I bought it pretty much because I wanted to read it before the film comes out but I’ve kind of lost interest (mainly because I can’t quite remember what it’s meant to be about…).
