Music Monday (2)

AnQi's Music Monday: Lenka's "Everything At Once" and Lauren DeStefano's Fever

Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but danger is never far behind.

Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago - surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.

The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous - and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the any means necessary.

In the sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price - now that she has more to lose than ever.-GoodReads

MY THOUGHTS: The music video for Everything At Once is just delightfully creepy. You might've heard it on one of Disney's commercials, but the clowns that immediately pop into mind are not for the faint of heart. :D A majority of the plot in Fever takes place in a wicked circus where girls, forced into prostitution, are the main attractions. For me, Lenka's pop and accordion fit perfectly.

Jade's Music Monday: Florence And The Machine's "Swimming" and Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.
On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.
Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.
MY THOUGHTS: There's thirteen reasons that Hannah is dead. Clay is one of them. He was the one who reminded her of swimming...until she forgot, and started to sink.
