Secretly really like this article about the 'angst canon' reading choices of teenagers. I've read and enjoyed most of these books, although I'd also add Fahrenheit 451 to the list. Oh, and I feel that John Green's paper Towns is a better fit for 'alienated' teenagers than AAOK or LFA.

Oh, and Never Let Me Go is another cult novel in and around this genre in my eyes too.

Countdown to Trucksgiving (aka my first ever thanksgiving in the USA) is now at 15 days! So excited to visit San Francisco. And then come back from the States to a new job. Crazy times.

Courtesy of a friend on Facebook, original source seems to be here:

Today's soundtrack is a mixture of the first Slow Club album and spoken word poetry. Totally love Sarah Kay and Harry Baker.
