Weekly Round Up (02.10.13)
These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week, according to last.fm:
It’s been a week of mellow tunes, but I’m about to amp it up a bit for the Grammys! I’m cheering on fun. and crossing my fingers that they win All The Awards. Any of your favourites nominated this year?

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (Bought – I’ve been wanting to read this for a while and then when I heard April Lindner was coming out with a modern retelling of it I knew I really had to get to it. Plus, the Oxford World’s Classics edition is so very purdy.)
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (Won – Well, I didn’t win it exactly, but Natalie won a gift bag of swag at the advance screening of Beautiful Creatures we went to last week, which included a copy of the book. But since she already had a copy, she passed this one along to me.)
Catherine by April Lindner (Bought – Well, I couldn’t get the original and not also get the retelling, now could I? I really enjoyed Jane, her retelling of Jane Eyre, so I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with the story. After I read the original, of course.)
