Mood & Music Monday: 1/16/17

Hello, and welcome 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? One of my Facebook friends shared a clip from the movie Cadillac Records where Beyonce sings, “I’d Rather Go Blind” by Etta James (she plays Etta in the movie), and that clip led me to this. The originals are nice, but I really love Beyonce’s renditions. I wish she did more songs like this, because she nails them.

What are you reading? I finished The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, and now I’m reading The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Really hoping I enjoy it. 🙂

What are you drinking? Tons of water! Recovering from a cold makes it hard not to cough, but since coughing is bad for singers, I’m fighting that faint scratch with lots and lots of water. Seems to be working so far.

Any goals for this week? Keeping on top of beta reads. It’s finals week this week at my school, though, but, as long as I’m able to balance reading with school, I’ll be okay.   

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?
