Thank you so much to Monique @ That Wild Soul for tagging me in this epic tag. I super excited for this one, whoever came up with it is incredible original.
This is going to be fun!
- Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
- Shuffle your iTunes library, Google Play music library, or whatever you’ve got.
- For each song that comes on, list the song and the artist, and name a book that it makes you think of, explaining why. (You can do as many or as few as you want, I’m not going to set a number. This is a low-pressure tag. Whoever we are, we are pretty laid back.)
- Tag as many bloggers as you want.
- Arsonist’s Lullabye by Hozier
This is the most recent book that I’ve read and IT IS SOOOOO GOOD (review coming soon). The lyrics of this book is SO PERFECT for this story. If you’ve read it, please listen to this song and let me know in the comment what you think! I can’t really explain the connection properly without completely ruining the novel.
- It’s Quiet Uptown by the Original Cast of Hamilton
I assume everyone has read this book but if you haven’t and you don’t want to be spoilt MOVE ON TO NUMBER 3. Ok, so in the To Kill a Mockingbird sequel, Jem is dead which is why this song connects so well because Alexander Hamilton’s oldest son has just died. BOOM, tears.
- In the Stars by Icona Pop
Listen to the lyrics and you’ll know what I mean.We’ll be ruling in the sunlight/Like we’re pharaohs on the throne/We’ll be dancing in the moonlight,/Dancing all the way back home/They’re coming home at last
- Soldier, Poet, King by The Oh Hellos
Tell me you don’t see a soldier, a poet and king in Game of Thrones. Plus the song has an other-worldly feel which is exactly like the book. The soldier is Jaime Lannister, the Poet is Tyrion and the King is Robert. SO MANY CONNECTIONS!
- Unbreakable Smile by Tori Kelly
La da da da dee, you’re not breaking me
In the novel, Frankie refuses to be broken and opens a can of worms whenever she can, uncaring of what people think of her. Plus, she seems like a smiley person.
- Sleep on the Floor by The Lumineers
The indie feel and the moody lyrics is exactly reflective of this novel.
We were not born in sin/Leave a note on your bed/Let your mother know you’re safe/And by the time she wakes/We’ll have driven through the state/We’ll have driven through the night
Tell me that isn’t like Perks of Being a Wallflower – IT EXACTLY IS
WOO HOO, that was a fun tag!!
I’m honestly not bothered to tag anyone so I’ll tag EVERYONE!!!
If any of you are interested in doing this, you are free to!
