Follow Friday/Blogger Hop

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View.

This week's question:

What is on your current playlist right now?

I'm currently making my way through all of Ludovico Einaudi's songs. I love instrumental music and his music is the most gorgeous thing ever.
Some Florence + the Machine, Aerosmith, lots of old Linkin Park songs and People In Planes, and a cover of Small Town Boy by Paradise Lost that I can't get out my head. I'm a bit random with my choices, and it mostly depends on my mood/what the shuffle mode comes up with.

What about you? How do you pick your music?

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event that enables people to hop all over each other make new friends and be enthusiastic about books in general. Join the fun! Go over at Crazy for Book.

This weeks question is: 

If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?

Of course! I don't read all the author's books in a row, of course, but I'll definitely check out the goodreads pages of the ones that look good (or every book, depending on the awesomeness of the book I read) and will  frenetically add them to my (humongous) tbr list.

What I've been up to this week:

04/18: Those pesky little things called spoilers
a discussion about spoilers, GoodReads... And bunnies.
04/19: Teaser Tuesday: The Possessed by L.J. Smith

04/20: "Waiting On" Wednesday
Mermaids and Lisa Schroeder's new book
04/21: Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

I love random music. My playlist is bipolar sometimes from Lady Gaga to the soundtrack of Gladiator and then Metric and back to Meme and Tricky...bizarre sometimes. Happy Friday. XOXO - Parajunkee

Alison said...

Hopping through. I love Florence and Linkin Park. Like Parajunkee above, I love Metric too.

Very eclectic music choices that sound very cool. I'm your newest follower and would love it if you'd visit me whenever you get a chance.

I love an eccentric playlist . . . my MP3 player usually crosses as many decades as it does genres. :)

New follower from follow friday! Oh I love Linkin Park! I don't listen to them very often though, because most of the time their music doesn't fit my mood. Have a great weekend. :)

Tena @ Crazy Book Slut said...

I am your newest follower, hope you have an awesome weekend!

Just hopping by and following through. I tend to get a bit obsessed when I find an author I like
As for my playlist - well I'm a 80's tragic!

New follower!

I'm in love with your design!

I use goodreads to find more from an author and to keep track of the order of a series.

I was going through my blog posts today and I stumbled upon your comment on my first post ever. Remember it? The one where you said that I was your funnier half? LOL You're so sweet! I'm not THAT funny. Just funnier than average :) LOL nahhh I'm joking. I try but I usually come off as dorky or creepy. It's fun though!

I do the same thing as you! When I read a book I love, I hunt down the author and add all their other books to my TBR list on goodreads. Another indication that you're my other half ;)

I like instrumental music as well, especially piano music. Aerosmith is awesome, so is Linkin Park!

Oh, I love Linkin Park! Although they're not on my playlist for today. You seem to have a nice taste in music. :) New follower!

Rather than purchase the entire back list of a new favorite author, I try to get them through the library. Come see which author I'm reading through right now.

I can relate- my TBR is seriously getting out of control. I'm starting to feel guilty about not getting to the oldest ones, too! :/ Great post! I've been following for a bit- love the blog! :)

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

Haha. I listen to very different music. Old follower stopping through.

Alexa said...

Hopping through! Oh wow, I haven't listened to Linkin Park in a long time - maybe I should go and dig up their songs right now.

Jennifer said...

New follower hopping through! I totally dig old Linkin Park stuff...their new stuff I feel indifferent about, but anything pre-2003, I'm like, "YES!" Also love Florence and Aerosmith and I've been on a classical kick at work lately (it seems I get a lot done when listening to classical...). Anyway, happy FF!

I go through stages where I listen to pop or rock or instrumental, never as ecleptic though!

I love Aerosmith though!
