New Music Saturdays 10.29.16

How is it the end of October already? I also can’t believe this is the first time I’m actually home for Halloween… and I’m spending it recovering from some awful cold in bed instead of going out. I guess I’m growing up… or just feeling old. Also, getting back into the habit of writing and actually posting is hard… but rewarding – it makes me feel accomplished (even if nobody reads these, which is totally fine with me).

Anyway, a ton of new music came out yesterday and it took me a while to go through everything and choose my favorites. Finally narrowed it down to the below ten! (Side note: it was extremely hard to choose just one song from James Arthur’s comeback album. I loved every single song on that album.)

Now Playing: Jordan Fisher

I guess two months of not writing is better than my normal six month hiatus. I thought being unemployed would mean more time to write and read, but it ended up meaning more time to spend with my family and to stress over job applications. (And more time to exercise like a crazy woman, but we won’t get into that.)

Anyway, if you know me, then you know that I’ve been a fan of Jordan Fisher for a while. I found his single “All About Us” on Apple Music back in April, and I’ve been following his career ever since. The song itself has a bit of an Usher meets Nick Jonas vibe, but still made me really excited to see what he would come out with next. Plus, that falsetto gave (and still gives) me goosebumps.

Currently Reading: Nerve

I’ll admit it – I love movie trailers. So when I found out that the movie “Nerve” was based on a book, I knew I was going to read the book. No lie, the book is really boring compared to the trailer, and actually a bit annoying (which is also why it took me so long to read). Plus, nothing in the trailer actually happens in the book, so that was a bummer. It’s a shame because the premise of the book was really good and interesting. I’m really hoping the movie is better than the book in this particular case.

To summarize the book in one sentence: When Vee decides to take part in NERVE, the online dare game, she becomes an official “player” and gets paired up with hot & mysterious Ian… only to find that as the game goes on, the dares get more and more dangerous, and she’s not sure if she can, or even wants, to continue playing.

New Music Saturdays 07.30.16

So the last two weeks I’ve been distracted by the RNC & DNC. I swear I’ll read more books soon. But there were some really fun song releases yesterday, and I’m so excited that I have to share my favorites!

New Music Saturdays 07.23.16

It’s hard for me to finish books when it’s this nice out. Since most of my books are ebooks, I tend to read them before bed or when I’m commuting somewhere. But since I’ve been out exercising and walking and just enjoying the weather, I haven’t really finished any books lately. But I’ve been listening to a lot of great music! This Friday had some great releases – and the HONNE album is FINALLY out!
