How many books do you read at a time?
Before I started blogging, the answer would have been one or two. Now that I have, I am reading at least three books at one time, and have even balanced five. I wrote a paragraph for Readiculous Reads when I just started blogging and write that I would never in a million years actually read multiple books at the same time. For better of for worse (until death do us part), that fact has changed. Mondays through Thursdays I have AT LEAST my School book (hard copy, usually for library books and ones I own), my home book (digital copy, usually for blog tour or Netgalley), and finally, my portable book that I might double up with my school book that usually goes to the gym with me. I know this sound hectic and crazy, but it works for me. I talk more about my reading/reviewing habits in one of my newer posts, "What I've Learned....My Four Month Blogoversary"
Music Monday is a weekly book meme hosted by Total Book Geek. These are the requirements:
- Choose a book or a scene from a book.
- Choose a song that fits said book or scene.
- Tell us why you paired them together.
- Don't forget to share the title and author.
- Be careful not to include spoilers!
I have very mixed feelings about the Lumineer's album, but a few of the songs are just perfection. The one I'm featuring for today's Music Monday is Slow it Down. This is the kind of song where the lyrics could be from a car commercial, and I would still love it. It isn't about the lyrics, but about the soul of the song, and the feeling one gets when one listens to it. This sends absolute chills up my spine and it fits perfectly with my newest bookish obsession -The Ascendance Trilogy by Jennifer A. Nielsen. This song represents Imogen and Jaron's unbeatable love which I admire so much, and even though they aren't my OTP, they are very sweet together. Check out my spoiler free review of The False Prince.
I picked the song because of these lines which symbolize how their love has to be kept hidden unlike Amarinda's which is expcted:
"Some love was made for the lights,
Some kiss your cheek and good night,
Lift up a red high heel,
Lock up your doors with steel"
