'Collapsing Cities' by Get Cape Wear Cape Fly feat. Shy FX - I heard it on BBC's Radio One a couple evenings ago and I'm kind of in love with it now.
2. Books (Reading)
Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall and Maggie Stiefvater's Linger. I read the first one a few days ago and bawled my eyes out, and the second one is sitting right in front of me as I write this - and I am dying to pick it up and dive in.
Pimms and lemonade. Yikes. New addiction to surpass my love of ginger wine? I tried this for the first time yesterday and it wasn't quite love at first sight, but it rapidly grew on me. Perfect summer drink, topped with ice.
4. Book (Writing)
Book Two of my Echoes story. I swear scenes, characters, conversations run riot in my head at all hours of the day. I think they're getting especially worked up because I haven't been able to write much of it out in the last couple of days. This is, alas, because my OCD has returned and no font (for now) looks right. I dream of Vendetta Light, but it costs too much to buy.
5. Books I Really Want to Read But Can't Afford to Buy Right Now Because I'm Flat Stony Broke and No One is Hiring Me
Keris Stainton's Della Says: OMG and Justin Cronin's The Passage. The latter's just been such a surprise 'blockbuster' and the former trickled my way courtesy of the lovely Talli Roland. I then read the blurb and excerpt and I was hooked.
To get a freaking job. I've applied for a ridiculous number and gotten only one interview thus far, and then promptly failed to get that job. Oh, employers. Why do you hate me so?
Oh, and while I'm dreaming: I'm also kind of obsessed with getting agented and published. My manuscript is still out with an agent and I shall hopefully hear yay or nay soon.
Kind of craving a pizza this very minute. But also, I am totally obsessed with French Fancies right now. For those of you who are tragically unaware of the wonderfulness that is a French Fancy, it's a little cake that, quite frankly, I would die for.
But don't hold me to that, okay?
So what are you obsessed with this week?
