Weekly Round Up (01.22.12)
These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week, according to last.fm:
Starbucks | iTunes Pick of the Week: Hold You by Elliott Brood and Adieu by Cœur de Pirate. I’ve only given each of these a quick listen, so I can’t really say much about them. They’re both very different, but neither are really my style.
You may remember that last week I had planned my reading around The Fault in our Stars by John Green arriving on Tuesday. However, after I published my weekly round up post I realized that, while the expected delivery date was Tuesday, it was actually Tuesday January 24. I still had to wait more than a full week! Woe :(
On Friday I was just about to leave for my morning latte when the mail came in and I spied a book-shaped box. Could it be?? Yes it could! It was my lovely, signed, pre-ordered copy of TFioS! I’ve already finished it and it was funny and heartbreaking and I’m glad I have a little while to collect my thoughts before Anastasia and I review it together.
“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.

Up Next: Just want to finish the two that I have going right now.
What are you reading and listening to? Did any new books find their way into your possession?
