Hey girls, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! The weather was incredibly gorgeous by the beach, I didn't want to leave. It's much much hotter inland :(
Anyway, this month's question comes from the beautiful Andi: If you were stranded on an island--which one album and which one book would you want to have with you?
I'm embarassed to admit that I'm not as avid a reader as I once was. Growing up, my parents teased me and called me Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Belle always had her nose planted into a book. That was me. Throughout high school and early college, I continued my love of reading and writing. There is something so much more powerful about the written word. I tend to stutter or get flustered when I speak, but that never happens with my writing. Anyway, I've lost a bit of interest in reading novels, which makes me sick to my core! I think reading is so important for everyone! All of this new technology is distracting, and I fear that reading will one day become obsolete. Let's all motivate each other to pick up a great book!
I read White Oleander in high school, and have read it numerous times since. Please don't see the movie! It took away so much of the emotion. I even wrote a paper about the characters in one of my Psychology courses.
From Barnes & Noble: "Everywhere hailed as a novel of rare beauty and power, White Oleander tells the unforgettable story of Ingrid, a brilliant poet imprisoned for murder, and her daughter, Astrid, whose odyssey through a series of Los Angeles foster homes-each its own universe, with its own laws, its own dangers, its own hard lessons to be learned-becomes a redeeming and surprising journey of self-discovery."
It's sad, breath-taking, and it makes me cry. But I highly recommend it, even though it's quite meloncholy.
As for one album I'd be "stuck" with. It's Jack Johnson all the way! He makes any day a vacation in paradise.
Album: In Between Dreams
Favorite Song: Better Together. Look it up!
