Life of a Blogger {8}

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Jessi at Novel Heartbeat where bloggers chatter about random, non-bookish topics. This week's topic is favorite music albums!

TVXQ is still my favorite KPop group - even though I've long ago gotten past that KPop-crazy phase of mine - and Mirotic is my favorite album of theirs. It showcases the group's vocal versatility that is just unparalleled. *still crossing my fingers for a reunion :c* Meanwhile, my love for Taylor Swift is no secret, evident by how two of her albums are in this list. I've listened to all of her albums and found that I don't enjoy her older songs because they're too country, but I feel like Speak Now is where she started straying from that genre, and I just love it. ('Long Live' even inspired the WIP I'm working on right now.) And let's not even talk about Red

I'm one of the many who learned of Ed Sheeran because of his song The A-Team, and when I listened to that song I just needed more, so the + album it was. Kelly Clarkson, on the other hand, was introduced to me by my sisters, who even bought me her Breakaway album. It was years before I listened to any of Kelly's new songs, and coincidentally they were all in Stronger.

I love all of Carly Rae Jepsen's albums, but Kiss is my favorite; I remember having it on loop for days. Unlike CRJ, though, Up All Night is the only 1D album that I can listen to in its entirety without skipping a song. And lastly, Light Me Up. I developed a girl crush on Taylor Momsen because of Gossip Girl, so you can't imagine my squeals when I discovered that she's in a band.

Obviously, my musical taste is just as varied as my bookish one. I once came across a quote that goes something like this: "you can tell who I am by looking at my iPod", (if you know the exact quote and where it's from, please do tell me in the comments!) and I can't agree more.


  1. I think it's pretty cool that Taylor Momsen is in a band as well. I like Taylor Swift, but I actually prefer her older stuff because I'm a bit of a country girl.

  2. I love your blog name and your blog! And I'm a Pretty Reckless fan as well!! I followed you every way possible. Speak Now is still my favorite Taylor album.

    Here's my Life of a Book Blogger if you'd like to check it out. I hope you have a great day.

  3. I found another Kpop and book lover! :) I've definitely gotten over my kpop craze but I know what you mean. Music is just so addicting! I like Taylor Swift's Red! And even though I'm not a huge Directioner and I'm not obsessed with One Direction, i do like listening to their songs. Great post!

  4. I've been meaning to check out The Pretty Reckless! I think I'll do that this summer :) And I love so many of Kelly Clarkson's songs, but don't know enough from an album to add it to my list.

    Here's my post!

  5. THE PRETTY RECKLESS!!!! I haven't checked out their newest album yet but I've been meaning to :)


I love reading your comments so post away! <3

Also, I appreciate the thought but this is now an award- and tag-free zone :D
