My blog is one week old today and i have over 100 followers, so what better occasion than this, right? :) So as a big, heartfelt thanks, this is all for you. You can see by my choices that i feel strongly for Markus Zusak and John Green. I hope you do too :)
The loot is one book of free choice, paperback, from BookDepository of maximum 20 $ (USD). The giveaway is international, or at least as far as book depository is willing to ship. I hope like my choices, if you already have one of the books in a series, you can choose another one.

Album Review

Jagged Little Pill

Alanis Morissette

1996

(Maverick Records)

Original, confessional and honest are words to sum up this impressive breakthrough album by Alanis Morissette. It was the 90s, and at the time a new breed of female artists were taking center stage. Many people and critics can cite her for breaking ground due to this album. There was not one person at the time who owned this album.

Sure, we all know the singles: the angry, rock vocal driven “You Oughta Know,” the grammy-nominated “Ironic,” and “Hand In My Pocket”. "Like a Jagged Little Pill,” she says from the song “You Learn,” which the title of the album is mentioned. The track opener “All I Really Want” is a great one. “All I really want, is some justice!” she screams, as she goes on about how she wants those same affections she gives to her lover. “Perfect” is another great one. “Try a little harder…..” she says in a calming tone. Her vocals are great here. There were some songs that I did not care for, like “Mary Jane” and “Not The Doctor”. There is little to be said about them. 

Many people will see this as Morissette’s best work, and one of the most definitive records not only in the 90s, but in music history,
