my summer picks

I've had a lot of free time the last month so I've been reading and listening to music a lot =)

I thought I'd make a list of my summer picks!

Some of the music I've been listening to has been all over the place.

I'm loving Sky Sailing.

If it sounds familiar to you when you listen to it, that's because it's actually the man behind Owl City: Adam Young.
I love the new sound to it but it's actually a collection of songs he worked on before Owl City came to be.
suggested listening: Brielle, A Little Opera Goes A Long Way, Sailboats, Alaska

I'm also loving Lights.

She just released an acoustic-EP that I'm kind of loving! The first songs I heard from her have a very electronic sound to them but I love the acoustic versions now!
suggested acoustic listening: Saviour, River, February Air

I also have a "Summer 2010" playlist that I've been listening to on repeat for the last few weeks and I keep adding to it. Some of these songs include:
Ridin' Solo -Jason Derulo
If We Ever Meet Again (feat. Katy Perry) -Timbaland
Cooler Than Me -Mike Posner
Dynamite -Taio Cruz
I Like It -Enrique Iglesias
Airplanes (feat. Hayley Williams) -B.o.B
Billionaire (feat. Bruno Mars) -Travie McCoy
(basically songs that are on the radio, ha)

Yup, I have quite the collection of tunage. Summer puts me in the mood for songs that make me dance :)

My reading selections include:

and Linger

by: Maggie Stiefvater

Sisters Red

by: Jackson Pearce

and I'm reading Charlie St. Cloud right now so we'll see if it's going to be one of my picks!
speaking of I saw this today:

and can I just say
ZEfron won my heart over again :)
