#TopTenTuesday: 10 Non-Bookish Things

We’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is Non-book Freebie (choose your own topic that’s not related to books! This could be hobbies, TV shows/movies, bands/singers, food items/recipes, top ten things about you, your top ten favorite things, places you’ve visited, favorite fashion designers, etc. Take this time to let your readers get to know you a little!)

This week’s topic is a fun non-bookish freebie! Much like everyone else I interact with on the book blogosphere through my book blog, pretty much everything we talk about is book related, so I found this topic quite fun to do. I think I might’ve done something like this before but I can’t recall… That said, I decided to do a topic that I know I haven’t done before and that’s 10 no-skip music albums I love featuring a fair bit of Taylor Swift. Her lyricism gets to me in a way that few artists do and I STAN her tunes! 😍

But I digress. TS definitely dominates this list but much like my reading taste is eclectic, my music taste is too and this is only an infinitesimal sample of what’s on my playlist! I’m not really picky and I’ll listen to pretty much anything I find appealing to my ears. On that note, here are ten no-skip albums I can listen to on repeat and still not get sick of + three favourite tracks and one or two bonuses from each! Oh, and I might count the three TS albums as one… So I can add more awesome albums, lol (if you haven’t noticed, choosing favourites isn’t something I’m great at)! 😃

  1. Yay, I did music too!!! Chris asked me, is it all just harry styles?!? HAHA. I made myself do 10 different ones because if I did any repeats then it would all be Harry. You know, I never really listened to Taylor, besides what’s on the radio. I was trying to resist but she stood up for Harry when he was boo-ed for winning album of the year. So, I might have to give in!! LOL. We share Halsey! 🙂

      • Right?! I could have done one on just his songs and would have struggled. LOL. My best friend from high school is obsessed with Taylor. I’ve been around a lot of Taylor’s music through her!

  2. I’ve listened to none of these. 😂 Although I’m not big on music and if I listen to anything its usually lo-fi, 50’s music, or going back to my teen years and listening to all my emo music. 😅

    • I *love* lo-fi and throwing it back to my emo days (although for me it was when I was in uni)! 😂 The throwback tunes are definitely great and have so many amazing memories attached to them, haha. The 50s were great and I do love quite a few songs from that era but I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a full album from any artist!

  3. I love Taylor Swift, but I think my no-skip album from her is 1989 and Reputation 😀 As for others, it’s Face the Sun (Seventeen), Planet Her (Doja Cat), Sebuah Nama Sebuah Cerita (Peterpan/Noah), Love Is Dead (Chvrches), Starboy (The Weeknd), and Chase Atlantic (Chase Atlantic) 😀

    • Y’know, I’ve been meaning to listen to more Indonesian music/artists but I have no idea where to start. The only artist that I’m really familiar with (and by that I mean I know 3 songs by them, lol) is Tulus and I love his voice! 😂 I’ll have to check out Peterpan! 1989 is also a no-skip album for me but I’m still not fully jiving with all the Reputation songs, maybe because they were so overplayed? I think my vibe with TS goes from Red to 1989 onward, haha. Thanks for the recs, Tasya! 💜


      • Reputation was a hard one to get into, but once I watch her Netflix documentary they become my favorites! There’s just something about her energy on stage and the way she sung her songs that makes me really enjoyed it! 😀 Oh and I do hope you’re checking Peterpan out, they’re legendary!


  4. Love a bit of Hamilton, always listening to that one! I used to listen to the instrumental versions when I was writing essays for Uni as I liked background noise whilst I worked, but the lyrics were just a tad too distracting. I also love Taylor Swift, I do love folklore, evermore and Lover, but her two no skip albums for me are Fearless and Speak Now. We do have a couple of the same fave songs from Lover though, I also love Cornelia Street and Daylight.

    • Yeah, I can relate to the lyrics being distracting! I usually listen to music with lyrics when I’m doing things like gaming or cleaning or well, basically a lot of anything else that doesn’t require my full attention otherwise I can’t focus and end up wanting to sing, haha! 😂 Cornelia Street and Daylight are such great tracks and always give me warm fuzzy feels. 💜


  5. Yay for a music post!! And you mentioned a few artists that are new to me, so I need to check them out. I do love TS, Hamilton, and Kings of Leon, although I haven’t listened to this album yet! Such a great mix of genres, too!
