This week's question:
Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?

I love this question! I actually know many songs that remind me of a book. But I'll just show you my top 3 with some of the lyrics that speak to me. <3

#3:  Strange by Tokio Hotel & Kerli for Wither by Lauren DeStefano

"You want to fix me, push me into your fantasy. You try to give me, sell me a new personality. You try to lift me, I don't get better. What’s making you happy is making me sadder. In your golden cage. All I feel is strange, strange. In your perfect world. So strange, strange. I feel so absurd in this life.  Don't come closer. In my arms, forever, you'll be strange, strange,  like me."

 




#2: Beautiful Soul by Jesse McCartney for The Host by Stephenie Meyer

"I don't want another pretty face. I don't want just anyone to hold. I don't want my love to go to waste. I want you and your beautiful soul."





#1. Broken by Lifehouse for Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

"I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing. With a broken heart that's still beating. In the pain, there is healing In your name, I find meaning. So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on I'm barely holdin' on to you."

(but it also really fits for the other books in this series)

  6. Great choices! I can't think of any songs that remind me of a book. I don’t connect music to books, and I usually read in quiet.

  19. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog. I love Egypt as well, I started watching tv shows about the history of the pyramids & I fell in love. My husband says he will take me someday but it has to be when our kids are bigger. It looks like such a beautiful place with so much history. I also like your quote right next to your cute vampire girl. I feel like when I'm reading it's just me, the characters, and the world that the book has sucked me into. Thanks again have a good weekend!
