I'm Alison (on the off chance you couldn't guess that from the name of my blog). I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.
This weekend is a special one for me. On September 24, I turned 30 years old! In celebration, stay tuned for a big giveaway announcement on Monday

A Creature I Don't Know by Laura Marling
*Laura Marling is a British singer/songwriter. This is her third album. I've been a huge fan from the very beginning. I was lucky enough to attend her concert in San Francisco last weekend (I happened to walk by the club and noticed she was playing that night). What a great show. Laura has a folky/jazzy/country sound. There are similarities to Mumford & Sons - she dated Marcus Mumford until recently.
Check out one of my favorite songs: Sophia - Starts out slow and then completely changes into a catchy ditty at 2:56 min.
