This week is all about music & books. We previously did books we’d give theme songs to so feel free to do that! Or 10 songs I wish that were books (check out my love songs I wish were books for an example of what I mean) — Thanks to the couple people who suggested making this one an official topic. I don’t know why I hadn’t…I think I thought my post WAS for TTT in my head when I thought back to it.
I was pretty excited when I saw what this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme was. I personally love reading (DUH! 🙄 ) and I also LOVE music! So this week, I’m gonna go with If A Book Had A Soundtrack, This Song Would be on it. These songs might not be a perfect match, but they are good enough for me 😉 Just a warning, a lot of these will probably be a little somber, seeing as that is mostly what I read. I hope you enjoy this anyway. 🙂
1.) Book: Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn.
Song: Poster Of A Girl by Metric.
2.) Book: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han.
Song: Can’t Let Go by Landon Pigg.
3.) Book: Lovely, Dark and Deep by Amy McNamara.
Song: Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey.
4.) Book: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.
Song: Want You Back by Mandy Moore.
5.) Book: Get Well Soon by Julie Halpern.

6.) Book: Drowning Is Inevitable by Shalanda Stanley.

7.) Book: Sweethearts by Sara Zarr.

8.) Book: Weird Girl and What’s His Name by Meagan Brothers.

9.) Book: My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga.
Song: Tally Marks by JOSEPH.
10.) Book: Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen

oh gosh, I don’t know if I could match songs to books like that! My poor non-creative brain would implode. Fantastic job!! My TTT
I just thought the same thing. I don’t know if I could match the songs like this to books! Great job– I used to love Metric (wouldn’t “The Police and the Private” be a fun short story?).
My TTT: http://brownbooksandgreentea.com/2016/02/16/10-songs-i-wish-were-short-stories/
Yes it would! I love that song! 🙂
Girl, it was hard, but I got through it! 😀
haha!! You did great!
The only author I’ve read on this list is Sarah Dessen, and I haven’t read Lock and Key… it sounds like it might be a little sadder than the Dessen novels I’ve read, though the song sounds hopeful.
It’s REALLY good! You have to read it! 😀
I did this too! 🙂 Lots of my favorite songs on your list but unfortunately I haven’t read any of those books hahaha … more books to TBR 🙂
I didn’t recognise a couple of these, but the pairings that I did were fantastic!! I looooove Lana del Rey matched with “lovely, dark and deep” (even the title pairs up nicely!!)
Awesome TTT 🙂
Thanks! I had a hard time with picking songs and after listening to that one, I just knew I had to use it for Lovely Dark and Deep! 🙂
I LOVE Suburban War! Such a good song. If it would be on a soundtrack for Sweethearts then I’m definitely adding that book to my TBR 🙂 Awesome list!
Thanks! I love Arcade Fire…Well not the newest album, but everything before that! 😀
I haven’t heard of any of these songs, and my speakers aren’t working at the moment, but as soon as I can manage I will definitely be giving them a listen. I’ve only read Firsts from your list and i absolutely loved it!
Thanks for visiting me.
Lovely post! I’ve heard of a lot of these artists, but haven’t listened to many of them, so I’ll have to give them a listen sometime. 🙂
Lovely post! I’ve heard good things about a lot of these artists, yet haven’t listened to them. I’ll have to give them a listen sometime! 🙂
Great list!!! So many great songs. I would have a hard time matching books to songs though. You did an awesome job! 🙂
Aww Mandy Moore and Michelle Branch! I totally forgot about them! I haven’t read the books, but I love those two 🙂
I haven’t yet read any of these books but I sure am interested now! Great post!
Thank You! 🙂
All You Wanted! That takes me back!
Can’t Let Go is perfect for P.S. I Still Love You, I just finished the book last night. And Michelle Branch! Her music makes me so nostalgic. Great list!
I haven’t read any of these books, but I love the song choices – makes me want to try some of the books! 🙂
Check out my TTT and my current giveaway.
I love what you did here. I haven’t read any of these, but I like that you matched songs with books and I’m intrigued!!
Love your list! Mandy Moore’s ‘Want You Back’, I loved that song when I was younger! And Michelle Branch and Kate Nash, some really great picks!
It’s crazy how many songs fit for contemporary books… Like, it doesn’t work so much with fantasy books *sigh* But that’s because singers are inspired by every day life, so I totally get that 🙂
