CD: Submarine (Soundtrack)

When Im in a bad mood I go out and buy books and CD's. After a long and hard day at Uni, I treated myself to this soundtrack from the upcoming movie 'Submarine'. ALL songs by love-of-my-life Alex Turner (from the Arctic Monkeys)
Oh how my day greatly improved!

Books: Shiver

"I felt like things were getting away from me. I'd found heaven and grabbed it as tightly as I could, but it was unravelling, an insubstancial thread sliding between my fingers, too fine to hold." 
This is without a doubt my favourite book ever written. Everything about it simply stunning. The cover, perfect; The words, poetry; The story, devastatingly beautiful.

I will admit that I got far too emotionally involved in the love story between Sam and Grace, so much so that I spent most of my time crying, even once I had finished the book.
Stiefvater introduced me to the heartbreaking words of Rilke, with which I have developed a love affair.

The second instalment to Stiefvater's 'Wolves of Mercy Falls' trilogy, Linger, is equally as beautiful. Watch the trailer, music composed artwork created by Stiefvater herself... genius!

Words: Der Dichter (The Poet)

What then would I do with my lips?
With my night?
With my day?
I have no lover, No house,
No spot in which I live

 - Rainer Maria Rilke

Music: Lykke Li

Actually in love with Lykke Li. Possibly the most beautiful and intriguing woman I have ever seen and heard. Her music is artwork which intoxicates you with so much emotion, that you cant help but be swept up in a Lykke Li daze for the rest of the day.
