Since we are now well into 2013, and it looks like we have pulled through another apocalypse, I thought I would share some of my 2012 favorites. As a college student I am fond of music and reading (who isn’t?) so I thought I would share a couple of my favorite albums and books of 2012.
Two of my favorite albums
1) Metric- Synthetica http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUvG77SeIpI
This music is so good. I listen to it when doing homework, while on facebook, anywhere! I just love the sound.
2) The Mountain Goats- Transcendental Youth
I have always loved this music group. They have written some of my favorite songs (Woke Up New and Up the Wolves). Not only that but they just made an album called Ghana, which is my favorite country.
Two of my favorite books
1) The Fault in our Stars- John Green
I love cutesy books that take my mind off of schoolwork and this was one of them. He also wrote one of my favorite books, Looking for Alaska.
2) Behind the Beautiful Forevers- Katherine Boo
I had never heard of this book, but I picked it up off of the new releases shelf in the library here at McDaniel and it’s pretty good. I like reading about international stories and this was an enjoyable read about a town in India.
