From the Admin: Music and Hobbies

So, I read a lot, and one of my favorite things to do is find a soundtrack for the novel I’m absorbed in.  Sometimes I go looking for that perfect album, but most of the time the music just hits me in the middle of a story.
I just finished (re)reading Mockingjay from The Hunger Games, and Taylor Swift’s “The Last Time” really struck me.  I had been listening to Red, and I noticed some more songs popped out at me in reference to this series including “I Almost Do” and “Treacherous.”  The songs just embodied the characters for me, and the sentiments really resonate, if you look deep enough, and I love that.  It’s just so perfect when things you love can come together in such a distinct way.
