The Playlist Shuffle Tag

I’ve never done one of these and thought it might be fun to check out others’ playlists. Since I’m almost always listening to music, and have more than my fair share of playlists on Spotify, I thought this would be a good one to try out!

Rules:
1. Put your playlist on shuffle and listen to the first 15 songs (no cheating).
2. Tag 10 others to play along.

So I didn’t do number 2 but if you want to play along, have at it!

1. Clavicle – Alkaline Trio

2. Lupen Tooth – Blitzkid

3. Psycho Killer – Talking Heads

4. This Could Be Love – Alkaline Trio

5. Only Lovers Left Alive – The (International) Noise Conspiracy

6. America’s Suitehearts – Fall Out Boy

7. Pinball Wizard – The Who

8. 21 Guns – Greenday

9. I Hate Myself For Loving You – Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

10. Heartbreaker – Pat Benatar

11. Crazy – Gnarls Barkley

12. Death of a Bachelor – Panic At The Disco

13. Crushcrushcrush – Paramore

14. Revenga – System of a Down

15. Gimme More – Britney Spears

So obviously my musical tastes vary widely. And this is just from one of my playlists! See anything you like? Any suggestions for me to add to my lists? Leave a comment!

They stick around.

I just recently joined the #bookstagram family and I have to say it is the best and worst thing I’ve ever done. For one thing, I’ve started following quite a few other book lovers. I love being a part of a community who loves to read as much as these people do. Their own instagram accounts are great for recommendations on what to read next. But that’s what leads to my problem. I now have so many books to read that I don’t know when I’ll finish them all!

I guess there are worse problems to have.

In an effort to let you know a little more about me, I thought I would share with you a few books that have stuck with me. These are books I definitely wouldn’t mind reading again.

51gfkfjupcl-_sx322_bo1204203200_1. The Night Circus – If you haven’t picked up this book, I highly suggest you run to your nearest bookstore and grab a copy. Filled with magic, romance, and mystery you can’t go wrong with this novel. It’s been a couple of years since I read it last but I would love to get lost in it again.

2. To Kill a Mockingbird – I have to confess, I didn’t read this until last year. Most people I know apparently had to read it for school but I was never subjected to that. And honestly, I’m kinda happy about that. I think if I’d been forced to read it for school I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much as I did.

3. Orphan Train – I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy this book when I first picked it up. It had been recommended on multiple occasions to me and I couldn’t understand why. But I got pulled in quick! I’m a huge history nerd. I love anything dealing with it, especially World War 2 era. That combined with the intertwiningorphan-train-cover-001 of two different but very similar stories intrigued me to no end.

4. Seveneves – I’m not usually too crazy about sci-fi books. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy them but they’re not my go-to. In fact, I usually judge them by their covers. But Seveneves was amazing. Dealing with the end of the world, Stephenson manages to pull me in and keep me in the midst of the chaos that happens. This book was long. Longer than most of our book club books are. But we got through it, and while I have some complaints about it, overall it was well worth the read.

These are just a few of the books that still intrigue me to this day. Most I will definitely go back and read at some point. And I can’t wait to see what other books make the list of the unforgettable.

What are some books that you could read again and again? Are there any that hold a special place in your heart?
