Mood and Music Monday: 8/15/16

Hello, everybody! Welcome to this week’s Mood and Music Monday!

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, it’s The Lumineers. I’ve been listening songs from their sophomore album (“Ophelia,” “Angela,” and “My Eyes,” to be more specific). For some reason, the music their second album is more appealing to me than their first. (Maybe it’s the album cover? Gosh, I’m shallow.) Either way, I like what I hear, so I’m going to poke around a little bit to find more of their stuff to listen to. 🙂  

What are you reading? This past week, I finished The Stars Never Rise (by Rachel Vincent), A Court of Thorns and Roses (by Sarah J. Maas), and Rot & Ruin (by Jonathan Mayberry). The last one was my favorite of the three.

I started The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry last night (but I’m behind in reading it). It’s good so far. I’m a little confused about a few things, and I’m hoping that’ll change soon.

In assigned reading, I finally made it to page 1000 of Don Quixote! (!!!!) This is, by far, the longest book I’ve ever read. I only have fifty more pages left, so I plan to finish it tonight.

What are you drinking? Kombucha. 😉

Any goals for this week?  Reading, and prepping for school. I’ve figured out a reading schedule which should enable me to read both the ARCs and the other books in this month’s TBR list. I’m kind of stressed with school looming, but I think I can do it.

How about you?

  • What song(s) are you listening to today?
  • What is your current read? Are you enjoying it?
  • Do you have any plans or goals for this week?
