PVOTD: “Beat Down” by Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas Feat. Iggy Azalea

“There’s a party on your face, and I’m about to dance on it.  Bout to dance on it.  Bout to dance on it.”

This is two years old, but it’s new to me.  I love it so much.  It’s hard to pick favorites with Iggy, but this is a contender.

“House of Mirth” by Edith Wharton

HouseofMirth

I read the first seventy pages of this book the first time I picked it up.  It had been sitting on my shelf, looking all fancy, and I finally gave it a turn.  Loved it.  I was engulfed in the world and caught up in all the drama the whole way through.

I expected controversy when I began this book, but I didn’t quite expect darkness.  This isn’t Pride & Prejudice where Elizabeth gets Mr. Darcy in the end.  Instead, nobody will marry our heroine, dooming her to a miserable life.  But oh the drama!  It’s a turn of the century Real Housewives.  So many fabulous characters with tragic flaws doing expensive things.  Don’t be intimidated by the darkness.  This was well worth the read.  I’m excited to read the other two novels that come in this adorable set.

PVOTD: “Good For You” by Selena Gomez

It took me a minute on this one.  Just a minute, though.  I had to get over my expectation of an upbeat “Birthday”-like single.  After a few listens, I realized that this song is amazing.  I love both versions – the video is a basic one, the single has A$AP Rocky.  Gawd the A$AP Rocky addition is good though.  I recommend listening to it without the video.  The video is beautiful and she’s sexy as hell.  But guys, she still looks like she’s 15.  I know!  She’s 23.  But I can’t.
