Encyclopedia of Me - E

Eleanor & Park: After Harry Potter, this is my favorite book. It's so simple, but beautiful and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. As Eleanor once said, "I just want to break that song into pieces and love them all to death." That's how I feel about this book!

The Ellie Sweet series: Every teenage writer trying to get published should read this series. It deals with things we all go through--querying agents, critique partners, editing, balancing writing along with your other priorities, etc. It's very addictive, too! I read both books in three days each.

Ed Sheeran: Not only is he an amazing lyricist, but he also raps, plays guitar, and did a duet with Taylor Swift. And he's only 23! Some of my favorite songs by him are, "Give Me Love," "I See Fire," and "Kiss Me."

Eggs: You can boil them, scramble them, fry them, put them in a sandwich, put them in a salad, make omelets with them, use them to bake cookies, and so, so much more. What's not to love?

"Enchanted," "Everything Has Changed," and "Eyes Open": Three of my favorite Taylor Swift songs. Handy that they all started with 'e.' ;) Also, the "Everything Has Changed" music video is one of my favorite music videos.

Europe: I definitely want to visit Europe someday. Places to visit include England, Portugal, France, Italy, and Greece.

Eccleston, Christopher: The first Doctor from "Doctor Who" I was introduced to. :) I was convinced that he was going to be my favorite--because how in the world could I like any Doctor more?--but then David Tennant came along and changed my mind pretty quickly. But "The Parting of the Ways" and "Father's Day" are still some of my favorite episodes.

*squeals* Europe! And Eccleston!

Love Eleanor & Park. An excellent choice.

How could you not include the video to "Lego House?" It's exceptionally entertaining.

I can think of a few things not to love about eggs, but I'm elated that you love them so much.

We need to plan an excursion to Europe. I think we all really want to go.

OK. I am becoming exceedingly jealous of you seeing all the episodes of "Doctor Who." So far I've only seen Eccleston, and I like him a lot. I think I need to experience the other doctors soon.

(There are so many great words that start with E.)

@nevillegirl :D

@Dr. Mark Well, if I were adding every song I love by Ed Sheeran, I'd list every single song he ever wrote. ;) But yes, that music video is awesome.

DEFINITELY. First stop, everywhere.

We should watch the next episodes together! You'd love the next Doctors. Plus, the special effects get so much better. ;)

nevillegirl said...

I am a very excited Engie because the next Doctor is supposed to be more like Eccleston's and yaaaaay.

You guys should watch "The Snowmen" together. At one point I fell off the couch from laughing so hard.

The Magic Violinist said...

@nevillegirl Yay! :) Where did you hear that?

Well, if Strax is in it, it's going to be hilarious. ;)

nevillegirl said...

It was an interview with Steven Moffat... I'll try to find it again.

Yep, and it has the Great Intelligence so it should explain The Name of the Doctor a little better.

Ooooh, you came up with so many good ones for the letter E!! I love this post! I almost put Europe on my list. Agreed - family trip to Europe someday! Great post!

The Magic Violinist said...

@nevillegirl Good to know. Thanks !:)

@Boquinha I'm surprised you didn't! Yes, for sure. :)

Jimmy said...

For a second I thought you meant the same Europe your dad listed.

(I think I like your Europe better!)

The Magic Violinist said...

@Jimmy Ha ha, I think I like my Europe better, too. ;)
