The Way To Your Heart Bloghop #3

Less Than Three Press is turning four years old and they're thus doing a bloghop. You can check out the masterpost HERE, with links to all the other wonderful authors participating.

So what do I love, besides writing? Reading, television, music, is what comes to mind. As the hop runs for fourteen days, I've decided to do a post for each of those three and spread it over the two weeks. Each post will also host a giveaway, so be on the look-out for them!

Music is an important part of my life. I like listening to it when I'm out walking, when I'm taking the bus or riding in a car. I like to listen to it when I'm writing as well. I don't have a particular genre I prefer; I listen to most anything. 

The band I've been with the longest must be Nightwish. I started listening to them back when I was in middle school or something like that, back when they were newly popular. I had every album they released and (im)patiently waited for a new one. It was a sad day when I found out Tarja was no longer in the band, and though I did enjoy Anette, she did not have the soprano voice of Tarja. Now Anette has quit as well, and I hope they'll go back to the soprano singer of the Tarja-era again, but I trust Tuomas to do what he thinks is best for the band. No matter what, I will always enjoy Tuomas' music. 

I'm also very much into k-pop, like Big Bang, 2NE1, B.A.P, NU'EST, to name a few of my current favourites. I also do enjoy many cover songs from Glee, along with their originals (though sometimes the Glee version is better), and I'm currently hooked on the soundtrack to Rock of Ages

Music can help set the mood for anything, especially when I'm writing. If I'm writing a sad scene, I like to listen to sad music. It can also distract from the writing, but that's not the point of this blog post. /grin

* * * GIVEAWAY * * *

One lucky commenter will win one (1) ebook of their choice from my backlist. All you have to do to be in the drawing is to tell me what artist/band you love most of all and leave me an e-mail so I can contact you. This giveaway will run until Sunday April 14th.


  1. I'm terrible at favorites, but right now I just love Ingrid Michaelson. If I had to just listen to her music, I'd be very happy. She has enough of a mix of her own wonderful music plus truly great covers, that I never get tired of listening to her. I can't even listen to Radiohead's "Creep" without thinking I should be listening to Ingrid, and my love of that song is the reason I found her.

    Thanks for sharing your favorites, T.T.!

    1. Never heard of Ingrid Michaelson, but it's a Scandinavian name. Is she from Scandinavia? ^_^

  2. Hee! I didn't even think of that. Well, I looked it up on wikipedia since all I knew was that she lived in New York, and it says she's half Swedish, and her mother is of Dutch ancestry.
