Mood & Music Monday: 6/27/16

Welcome to this week’s Mood and Music Monday! I missed last week, but I’m hoping to get back on track this week. 🙂

Mood and Music Monday is a weekly meme I’ve started, wherein I’ll post a song and talk about how it relates to my day/week, as well as a few other things. (And, in case anyone’s wondering, this meme has no relation to Lauren’s [from Always Me] “Music Mondays.”) Feel free to participate and to leave a link to your posts down in the comments!

Here’s the update for this week.


What are you listening to? This week, I’ve been listening to “American Money” by BØRNS. It played on my Tove Lo Pandora Radio one day, and I fell in love with its sound. Some are calling BØRNS the male Lana Del Rey, and it’s easy to see why. I’ve also been listening to “Heathens,” the new single by twenty one pilots (which is epic, because it’s twenty one pilots and everything they do is epic and they are my babies and I’m fangirling and I should stop now but IT’S AMAZING AND YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO IT), and “Good Grief,” Bastille’s new single.

Speaking of which, a lot of bands I like seem to be putting out new stuff. Coincidence, or nah?

What are you reading? I’ve put Eclipse on hold so I could get to other books that needed to be taken back to library. I haven’t touched The Adventures of  Huckleberry Finn in a week or so because I’m trying to balance recreational reading with assigned reading, and it’s not working too well, eheheh. Right now, I’m almost finished (about 80 more pages to go) with The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, the first in the Chaos Walking Trilogy, and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve been meaning to read this trilogy for a long time, and a lot of my friends highly recommend it, so I’m hoping all three of them will be good reads. 🙂

What are you drinking? Water, because I’m not an exciting person.

Any goals for this week?  Reading more Huck Finn, finishing Eclipse, working on my book, and (maybe?) start reading another one. We’ll see how it goes!

How about you?
