Music Tuesday (#5)

Wow, has it seriously already been 5 weeks since I first started Music Tuesday???!!! Wow!!

So I have decided that for the next two weeks I will be dedicating Music Tuesday to my favorite songs from the Twilight Soundtracks; in honor of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 DVD release, which is on February 11th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So for this weeks Music Tuesday, I am posting two songs :):

I have been obsessed with Metric's "Eclipse (All Yours" since the released of the Eclipse soundtrack!!

And second:

And Sia's "My Love", which became my absolute favorite song from all of the soundtracks!!

These are both absolutely beautiful songs! :)

The Baby Trap by Sibel Hodge Review

So I have spent the past two days, huddled over my Kindle, reading like crazy...and all because I just couldn't stop!

Thanks to Library Thing and Sibel Hodge I won a e-book copy of The Baby Trap.  And let me just tell you...if I would have known about this book before, I would have bought it and read it! I loved it so much!

The Baby Trap is the story of Gina and her husband, Karl, trying to conceive a baby.  Unfortunately, it becomes extremely difficult, and Gina soon finds out it might not be as simple as they had anticipated it to be.  After going through gruesome tests, research, yoga, acupuncture, crystal spiritual healings, and Feng-shui (hahahaha), still no luck!

As I mentioned a few entries ago in my review for Withering Tights by Louise Rennison, I love Love LOVE British humor! But what makes British humor even better??  Adult British Humor!  The Baby Trap had it all...my favorite British Humor (with words like fufu, willy, and bloody), great characters, written so great it kept me wanting to continue and never stop, and not to mention of course a great story!  It was hilarious (Oh. My. God. and how hilarious!!!), and heartfelt.

You would think dealing with such a serious situation as a woman who is unable to get pregnant would be a sad story, but once you read and get into the mind of Gina, who just want to be rolling on the floor laughing your "arse" off!!

If you get a chance to read this book...READ IT!!!! It's available on Amazon or you can check out Goodreads for more information!

Happy Sunday!
