Music Playlist+Summer Reading List

Hello everybody,

Recently I have fallen in love with an artist. John Mayer is a true gift. He has amazing talent and his lyrics are to a great extent something that I respect. So I’ve created a playlist to go along with all of these summer reads. They’re peaceful to accompany your nice reading time alone :). Yep, that’s pretty much it for catching up. On to the annual summer reading list, except this time with books I’m planning to read myself. If you’re still reading this, I applaud you.
