Tune In -- March 12, 2018

Hey y'all!Grace here, on a busybusybusy Sunday night which means, naturally, that I am blogging rather than inundating myself in the Latin studying that greets me after this post is finished.(Update: I'm in fact finishing this on Monday, because Sunday definitely got away from me.)With that being said, I haven't gotten much reading time in the past week and I likely will not have much time to read this week either. For those of you who don't know, I'm also a representative on Washington and Lee's form of student government, and election week starts on Thursday too! I'll be switching modes from book-Grace to school-Grace for a little while.Luckily, I can listen to music while I study, and waste plenty of time curating playlists. It's a good time. Without further ado (has it seriously been since November when I last posted what I was listening to?!?), here's my latest ear candy.

The Music

It's been a few months, and I whirl through playlists like an absolute maniac. If I'm addicted to anything, it's curating a dozen playlists with little delineation. This month, I've actually been listening to a bunch of my October songs. Studying to Choral Chill.I'm also one of those awful people who listens to the same song for approximately four days when I get obsessed. In photo lab, I listened to "I've Never Seen a Cyclone" on repeat for two hours -- a new low.The playlists I've had on repeat are I GOT MY OWN BACK (lots of Lorde-dark-be-a-queen songs), my monthly February and March playlists, BLACK BEAR (woodsy, bonfire music.) I study to UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS often (a nod to Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being, which is one of my favorite books) so that's the one I'll embed below.

The Shows

If I have the choice, I prefer reading to watching TV, which is why it's not something I find the time for at this point in the semester (or ever, really.) When I was so sick in January and February, I hurtled down my Sherlock rabbit hole but now I have about two episodes left -- which I really, really, really don't want to finish.While this isn't a TV show, I also recently saw Black Panther with a group of Lambda Chi Alpha pals. I'm glad it lived up to the hype!

The Audiobooks

I recently finished listening to Shiver on audio. I love Maggie Stiefvater's books on audio -- such atmosphere! -- but hadn't tackled this series yet. While Grace's voice at first annoyed me, I ultimately relaxed into it and it was perfect for long drives down winter roads. Perfect for dark highways and late nights in the frost! I plan on starting Linger (I'm currently approximately ten minutes through it) after I finish listening to Code Name Verity.I'm damn proud of myself for now owning that book in every format -- physical, e-book, and audiobook. Each time has been a riveting, visceral experience. Historical fiction that cuts deeply, with the funniest and most badass heroine of all time (who also guts you regularly.)

What have y'all been listening to lately?
