I’m a little late posting this…. But still wanted to share some new music love for one of my favorite artists Ed Sheerann. (By the way – thanks to BBC Radio Scotland — I knew of Ed Sheeran in 2011 — waaaay before he was being played on US stations and started touring with Taylor Swift. Check out my Ed Sheeran Brit Artist of the Week blog post from February 2012.)
So I was super excited to hear his new track “I See Fire” played on BBC1 a few weeks ago. This song will be featured in the latest installment of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I’m thinking this song captures the vibe of the movie perfectly..
Talk a look and let me know if you love it as much as I do.
I was proposed to in Paris, so Paris holds a special place in my heart and I tend to agree (yes, I’m partial) that it is one of the most romantic cities in the world. With that disclaimer out of the way, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Anna was totally relatable as a teen who is uprooted her senior year and whisked away to boarding school in a country where she doesn’t even speak the language. The story spans her senior year and I can’t say there was ever a dull moment in the book. I really loved her group of friends and the romantic angst between her and St. Clair was just about perfect. The author did a great job of capturing Paris, so the reader could visualize the sights, sounds and even tastes. Crepes with Nutella – Uhm yeah! One of my favorite memories of Paris, relieved through Anna’s eyes and stomach. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance.
Why can’t I give half stars in Goodreads, because I really want to give it 4.5 stars?!?!
