    I adore Birdy and Taylor Swift right now- I cannot stop listening to the Hunger Games soundtrack!

  3. My current favorite song….that’s a tough one! I HAVE been listening to a lot of Karmin’s cover of “Just a Kiss,” originally by Lady Antebellum, though!

    Happy blogoversary! :)

  7. Woot woot! Happy (half) blogoversary! That list contains so, so many of my favourites! I think I’d pick ‘Under the Never Sky’ because I still haven’t got a copy and I definitely should at least have one on the shelves. :P And…can I pick Delirium? My copy got damaged. I was clumsy and I DROPPED IT! Now the spine is all mangled and I was so torn when it happened.

    For years and years, my favourite artist has been Michelle Branch. I’ve been obsessed with finding her unreleased songs and so my favourite song at the moment is “Standing on the Edge”. I’m also a big fan of Ingrid Michaelson and lately I’ve been listening to instrumental-y stuff, like the Shadows on the Moon playlist (contains lots of classical) as well as The Legend of Korra music. Generally when I study I like lyrics-less stuff since I tend to sing along. Haha!

    Reply back with some of your favourites. I love, love, love discovering new/old artists and songs! I love just shuffling my library sometimes and listening to what cometh, you know?

    First of all, thank you for this great giveaway! I thought you were “older” to be honest. In any case, happy blogoversary! ;D

    I am listening to Lily Allen – Littlest Things right now (as in she’s talking about how he held her hand because he knew she was nervous while I’m writing this) but I don’t think I have a favorite artist or song. :/ I’m super self-conscious about music anyway, though. v_v – It’s what I love about this blog: You are so.. you just share it with the rest of the world. :)

  27. HAPPY SIX MONTH BLOGOVERSARY!! Oh my gosh, you guys, I can’t believe you’re already at the halfway-to-a-year mark! It feel like just yesterday that I started following your blog (in a stalker-ish yet hopefully non-creepy way) :’)

    Just because this is the song I’m singing at the talent show at school, I’d have to say that my fave song at the moment is When You’re Gone by Avril Lavigne! Although the song that’s stuck in my head the most is Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen because that’s one my sister and I like to annoy our mom with LOL x)

    ALSO: Hehe: “May the fourth be with you!” Oh, this is a punny week. <3

    And I can see you starting to break
