Sunday Ramblings…

Jess from Gone With the Words sent me a link to this Ed Sheeran performance on Conan this week. I love his voice so much and his live performances are always perfect. I got to see him open for Snow Patrol last month and I can’t wait until he finally breaks out in America. He’s already huge in the UK winning the Brit Awards: British Breakthrough Act, British Solo Male Artist, British Single, British Album of the Year ~ source wikipedia

  1. I absolutely love Ed Sheeran.. I love Lego House and The A team and Small Bump... actually, i love so many songs from him, i can't name them all ^^'

    Read Into Hiding

  2. I love Ed Sheeran now! All because of you ;) He is really good live, it's amazing what he can do with only his guitar. Not everyone can pull that off.

    Wow that is the spanish edition for Wicked Game?!! I LOVE IT!!! I'd buy it just because of that cover and read the english edition haha. I really want to read this series.

    Have a nice Sunday!!! :) xoxo

    1. Yay! I feel the need to make everyone aware of - and love Ed Sheeran lol

      Isn't that cover gorgeous?? So cool and it matches the book so perfectly. I want to make a poster of it.

  3. I love this song, but didn't know it was his. And thanks to your mentioning them I just went and checked when Snow Patrol will be coming to Europe, and I was already happy when I saw they will have a concert in Austria, but then I saw they'll com to Hungary as well! YAY!! :-D So thanks, Off to reserve my ticket :-D

    1. The concert was so good! Both Ed and Snow Patrol....I'm glad you get to go now too!!

  4. I've got Of Poseidon on my upcoming "to-read-and-review" list, so I'm curious to hear what you think of it, Karen!

    Also, I really like Ed Sheeran as well! I think my favorite song of his is "Give Me Love." :)

  5. So much love for Ed! I like him lots. :-)

    I'm so proud of your giveaway. We gotta clear off those shelves somehow, some way!

  6. Happy Sunday and Yes I need to listen to ed :) I do love snow patrol already. Great and busy week with the blog.

  7. I must check Ed Sheeran out. I always love great music recs. have a great week.

  8. What a generous offer to give your unwanted books a new home. As you say postage, especially shipping, is sooooo expensive that just having had a bookish sort out myself I've had to take the decision to take my books to a charity shop instead of doing a giveaway as I had planned.

  9. i can't wait to read your review of 'of poseidon' :)

  10. That cover of Wicked Game is AWESOME! I think I'll have to buy that one for sure. :)

  11. This is good piece of writing and pleasant urging commented
    here, I am really enjoying by these.
