Follow Friday/giveaway/read-along announcement

Question of the Week: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

That's really hard for me to say, since I have a very broad taste in music. I have a thing for movie/movie trailer scores. I am actually not a huge fan of pop, but love alternative music like Coldplay, Florence + the Machine, the Decemberists, Scars on 45 - just to name a few. Below I have a video of one of the songs by Scars on 45, it is one of my favorites right now!

In other news, I have two announcements:

First of all, I have reached 300+ followers, and have put together a giveaway that you can enter by clicking on the button or HERE. It will end on Jan. 26th.

Second of all, I am currently putting together a read-along for the Hunger Games and I need co-hosts and post writers, and, of course, people interested in participating. If any of that sounds fun, I'd love it if you'd check out the page and/or email me! I am hoping to have giveaways and fun posts and a chapter by chapter read so our minds will be refreshed for the movie, and we can all be in constant party mode from late January to March 22nd!


  1. Florence + the Machine has grown on me. I'm all over the board with my music taste too. My FF

  8. love that video!

    I posted about books today, just because that's what everyone loves, lol. Stop by?!

  9. I also love movie scores. I've loved them since I was about 5 years old, but really started listening to them when I was about 12 or 14. Who's your favorite composer and what's your favorite score?

    My favorite composer is John Williams, closely followed by Hans Zimmer. And my favorite score is for Jurassic Park.

  10. Just blogging by, have a happy Friday!

  11. Love Florence and the Machine. There isn't a song they have that I don't like :)
