Billy Joel - I've always been obsessed with older songs, never really having an interest in the newer pop / rap music. Recently, I've been listening to Piano Man and New York State of Mind by Billy Joel, my two favorite songs by him.
The Breakfast Club - I was scrolling through Netflix a few Saturday's ago, and came across The Breakfast Club. Little did I know that it would end up being my new favorite movie - if you haven't seen it watch it, you won't regret it!
Art - My mom was an exceptional artist when she was a teenager, and that's always inspired me to draw. Sadly, I'm not too great at it, but I've really been enjoying spending an hour or longer sitting outside with hot chocolate, music, and drawing.
Fuiji Camera - I'm so excited to be getting a Fuiji Camera for Christmas this year. It's such an adorable novelty - another reason to be beyond excited for Christmas!
The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern - The Night Circus is a gorgeous, magnificent story written about two magicians, Celia and Marco. Truly an unforgettable read, I'm so glad I decided to read it this year.
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie And Then There Were None is an exciting, exhilarating page-turner about ten strangers, each with a dark secret, stranded on an island, as they mysteriously begin to be killed off, one by one.
Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell Eleanor and Park features two misfits, both very different from one another, that end up falling in love. The ending broke my heart, but I absolutely love this book.
It's Kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini It's Kind of a Funny Story is about Craig Gilner, a sixteen year old that landed himself in a mental hospital after attempting suicide. One of the most inspiring stories I've read, a true sensation.
The Book Thief - Marcus Zusak The Book Thief is placed in Nazi Germany, 1939. It's a heart-breaking, extraordinarily terrific story about overcoming fear and loss.
The Dead - Charlie Higson My favorite genre of books are apocalyptic ones, where either it's natural disasters threatening the world, a disease, or a different "species." The Dead is the second installment in the Enemy series, and I remember absoutley adoring it. Whether it was the constant action, the excellent characters, or the fantastic world-build, I was hooked the whole time.
