New books! New music!

Hey all! I thought I'd share the books and songs you all recommended to me during the giveaway I had a while back! (if you missed it, some of the entries were to recommend a book and to recommend a song) That way everyone can come away with something, right? :)

If you'd prefer I not link to you, please let me know!

Books:
Tristan recommended The Yada Yada House Series, Where Do I Go?
Kate recommended The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Brianna recommended I read anything by Emily Giffin (I think?)

Genna recommended Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess

Sar recommended The Brain that Changes Itself by Norman Doidge
Tamara recommended the Dreamhouse Kings series by Robert Liparulo
Sarah recommended The Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig
Shauna recommended Life of Pi
and finally, Simone and Cassy both recommended Water for Elephants, which is funny because I know both these girls in real life and I loooved that book!

Songs:
Tristan recommended Handwritten by The Gaslight Anthem
Kate recommended Pistol by Dustin Kensrue
Brianna recommended anything by FUN
Alyx recommended Good Time by Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City (love this one!)

Love this, I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for book recommendations! I just started reading Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home.

Love that you posted this! I am always hunting for new books/songs/music/awesome stuff!

I am currently reading 'Let's Pretend This Never Happened' and it's hysterical! I highly recommend it. :-)
