For my dad's fortieth birthday, my mom arranged for forty of his friends to send one of their favorite CDs to him so he could discover new artists. For my "CD" I created a YouTube playlist filled with songs that have influenced my writing in one way or another. I had a lot of fun seeing what people sent him, and I realized that I've been in a sort of music rut recently. I've been listening to the same stuff over and over again, and I'd like to find something new.
I was wondering if any of you would like to comment and say what your
favorite artists are. It can be a band, a singer, an instrumental group,
anything you'd like. If you'd like to include a favorite song, too,
that would be great. :)
I've also been really addicted
to alternative stuff (Lorde, Melanie Martinez, music from the "Hunger
Games" movies, music from "The Fault In Our Stars,"
music from "Parenthood" and "Gilmore Girls," etc.), so if you know of
anything that's similar to those artists, I'd love to hear your
(Psst. If you want to see a list of my
favorite music, check out the "My Favorite . . ." tab at the top of the
home page. Scroll down a little bit and it's right there.)

Looking For New Music
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
