SKQ Reads: Summer 2015

  Full disclosure is that I haven't been reading much. When we finished our last show in Miami this past November I took a family trip to a tropical island where any time I attempted to read I mostly got distracted looking at waves or sunsets or just fell asleep because I was day drinking. Upon returning home I got sucked into holiday and post album cycle busy-ness and there was really no time to…

SKQ Reads: Fall 2014

Nearing the end of our album cycle has meant less press and radio obligations which has freed up a great deal of time and energy for my favorite pastime; reading! I end up losing and lending a few along the way, but here are the ones that have made it back to be stacked amongst my ever-growing collection. I've added a few of my favorite earmarks to fill in for my lack of "reviews". Bark,…

SKQ Reads: Spring 2014

So many things have happened in my book life over these last half dozen months! I broke two more Kobo Readers, and so, I am DONE. Back to basics. Paper and glue. I read An Education by Susan Choi over a two day period this winter. I don't believe I got out of my pajamas, which alarmed my girlfriend, who claims to have never seen me in sleepware past 11am. It happened. I loved the…

SKQ Reads: Winter 2013

Well, the year is coming to a close. I've now had two of my Kobo readers balk under the pressure of my lifestyle. I've now resorted to just reading on my computer (ugh) or, whenever possible, heading to the bookstore to pick up the real thing. I don't know what the new year will bring for me (Kobo 3.0?) but for now lets look back at a great year of reading! I decided to list…

SKQ Reads: Fall 2013

Friends! Summer is over and I thought it was time for a quick SKQ update! This is a slight variation, as I've consumed more TV and Film this summer than actual words. So, forgive the somewhat thin list, bookworms. Growing up, the summer's end was always bittersweet. I loved not having to be in school, but as a kid I always fared better in structured environments. There was a strange comfort when lazy days of watching soap…

SKQ Reads: Spring 2013

Hello! The last few months have meant a tremendous amount of travel which has afforded me countless hours of interrupted reading. Second only to actually PERFORMING- undisturbed (and obscene) amounts of time to read is the greatest gift of touring for a living. I have to admit that I have completely one hundred percent adjusted to my electronic reading machine. After losing Ko Ko One in an unfortunate hotel room mishap, I immediately purchased Ko…

SKQ Reads: Winter 2013

Hello! We are heading out on the road again, and for me that means choosing which books to tuck into my suitcase to keep me company in my bunk on the tour bus. It reminded me that I should share with you what books have really made an impression on me in the last couple of months. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! See my full list at teganandsara.com/skqreads. A Sport…

SKQ Reads: Spring 2012

Friends! Before I tell you about the books I've been reading, let me just suggest that you stop reading for one night and watch 'IN THE LOOP'. If you laugh as hysterically as I did at that film, please track down all three seasons of the BBC show, 'THE THICK OF IT'. It appears to be available on iTunes. I have been chuckling to myself like a giant geek over some of the remarkable dialog…

SKQ Reads: Sporting Edition

We were midway through Elementary School when we joined The Royals baseball team. It was a "daddy pitch" league, hardball and co-ed. At that age, seven or eight, we were all still relatively close in size, and in uniform with our mullets brushed back under the brim of our caps, we easily passed for boys. (more…)
