Books: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel
Mhm...I don't even know what to say. I did read for two hours straight in the afternoon - without distractions. Then, though, there was the Twitter chat and random TV watching with my mom and then it was 11PM and I was SO tired. So, yeah. I started out good, but determination kind of faded away. Goal for Tuesday? Be more consistent! Also, blog-visiting and posting on here as well as challenges just didn't fit into yesterday's schedule...
I have said it before on this blog - I'm not the type of reader to listen to music as I read. As my soundtrack for the Caster Chronicles series, especially Beautiful Creatures, though, I'd pick Avril Lavigne's first album Let Go.
One of the reasons I love that series so much is that it is set in a small, traditional, conservative town very similar to the one I grew up in most of my life. And just like Ethan and Lena, I never really felt like I and my loud opinions fit in. That's where Avril Lavigne and her songs come in. I'm thinking Anything but Ordinary, My World and - of course - Nobody's Fool. To complete the soundtrack, one could throw in Pink's Don't Let Me Get Me, Stupid Girls and Fucking Perfect :)
Alternative Title Challenge
Actually, I'm cheating a bit on this one. As most of you guys following me for a while know, I find that Michele Jaffe's Rosebush is just not talked about enough. I think, one reason could be the title. I mean, seriously, who would want to read a book that sounds like an uniquely designed gardening book? Not me! One morning at our library, though, I came across the exact same book but with the German title which is: Beauty knows no death. Admittedly, it does sound a bit more interesting in German, but I think it is still better than Rosebush. Just saying....
