Onto this month's soundtrack! Here's a peek into what I've been listening to this month...
Figuring out my soundtrack for April was a bit more difficult than I thought it would be, because I actually have been listening to audio books recently. I took a quick road trip to Chicago at one point this month, and when I have long drives I like to listen to books.
The first one:
I also have been listening to:
To be honest - I love the movies but have never read the books. (I fail as a geek, I realize this.) So I decided to try listening to it for long road trips. I wasn't sure how it would go - but so far I'm LOVING it! Also, they sing a lot in this book. I feel like I'm listening to a musical.
Now onto actual music that has been pouring out of my speakers when I'm not listening to fantasy/science-fiction/vampire books...
I was hanging out with Brizzane one day and as we were dying her hair we decided to put on the Backstreet Boys greatest hits. Half of these songs I didn't even remember existed, but I somehow found myself singing along - and with harmony! What's crazy is that while I like BSB back in the day, I was more of an NSYNC fan. I think my inner jr. high girl possessed by body for the afternoon.
Every year at Easter this is the song that I first hear. I have to get up super early that day to help with the Easter Breakfast, and this always gets me going on the right foot - and it's become one of my favorite parts of Easter morning!
I'm in love with this song, and it reminds me of one of the stories I'm writing. It's one of the songs I listen to as I work on the story.
This song from the Hunger Games soundtrack is so completely haunting and beautiful and just... wow. I'm in love with it.
We did devotions/Bible study based on these songs in youth group this month, so they've been stuck in my head.
I'm decorating a table inspired by Hairspray for a friend's wedding this week - so I've been getting some inspiration!
