"Nobody wants to be here and nobody wants to leave." Cormac McCarthy, The Road. That's exactly how I felt about this novel - I wanted to put it down and I also didn't want it to end. This Pulitzer prize winning book follows a father and his son traveling together for several months across a post-apocalyptic land after an unknown disaster. It is absolutely heartwrenching. Read immediately.
I've been waiting on Cat, Nigel and Mary to invade my living room for too long. So You Think You Can Dance forces me to think I can dance. Seriously. And that's probably why I love it so. This is my favorite dance from last season with the adorable Katee and uber-adorable Joshua. Mia Michaels choreography makes everything want to dance. Right?
I'm a sucker for a lovely and sensitive gentleman singing about love and loss. Mat Kearney is the poster child for this weakness. His newest album, City of Black and White, will be perfect for when you need to find your mellow - in hostile traffic or sippin' sweet tea on the couch. Think Coldplay or the Fray with a little less angst.
