Kodaline - All I Want
Aside from the song being downright beautiful, the video makes it all the more heart-warming. If it didn't have a happy ending, I'd be a crying mess right now. The live version is just as good. I think I've just found my new favourite band in this gorgeous Irish four-piece. I listened to their other songs on the EP and no two are alike; I think that's such a good quality as I often skip songs on certain albums because it becomes too repetitive. The style of music is changed between each song but the constant use of vocal power and guitar patterns remain.
Shantaram - Gregory David Roberts
I've only read twenty eight out of the nine hundred and thirty three pages but it's going to be a good one. The writer recounts his own experiences of being in the Bombay mafia, acting in Bollywood and fighting in Afghanistan all after escaping from an Australian prison and becoming a part of the most wanted list. I also ordered Birdsong (I loved the tv adaptation...mainly due to Eddie Redmayne) and Looking For Alaska.
My trip to London to see Les Miserables! I'm a sucker for a good musical. We're also going to see the Ballgown exhibition at the V&A museum which will be rather fan-dabby-dozey. I had wanted to see the Movie Costumes exhibition as film and theatre wardrobe had always fascinated me but there wasn't any convenient time slots. Speaking of Eddie Redmayne, he's starring in the film adaptation of Les Mis. Hawwwt.
Getting excited about:
Halloween! I love dressing up so I was really excited when two of my friends organised a massive Halloween party this year. As you can see, I had contemplated being a cat but now I'm going as a dark Little Red Riding Hood, with a red cape and dark make-up.
Is there anything you're really excited about in the near future?
