Hi everyone! I hope that you survived this Monday! I feel like this day has been never ending; I had to go get information on my patient this morning that I’ll be taking care of this week, take a pharm test, and went out with some friends after the test which was interesting to say the least but that’s a story for another day!
Anyway, I wanted to talk about some more songs that remind me of books! It’s been about 5 months since the first part. Music is a huge part of my life, and if I want to be completely honest, it’s probably just as big (or bigger) as the way that books affect me because it’s easier for me to listen to songs than for me to find time to read. With certain songs, they take me back to a particular book or even a specific scene in the book. Even after I finish a book and listen to some random song on the radio, I’ll think of how perfect that song would be for a character, story, or scene. So today for Music Monday, I’m going to share with y’all a few songs that take me back to books! Some songs have deeper ties with the books than others, AND there are going to be spoilers (read at your own risk)!!!
Daylight by Maroon 5
Every time I hear this song, it takes me back to that scene in City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare where Jace and Clary are spending the night in Luke’s sister’s house, and Jace is gone the next morning. He leaves a note for Clary on the desk explaining how as he watches her sleep, he wishes that he is able to stay with her but has to leave for the better good. It just makes me tears me apart every time I hear this song because I can see Jace (hesitating) as he climbs out of the window leaving Clary behind.
Demons by Imagine Dragons
I feel like this represents Jace yet again especially in the first couple of books when he think that he’s Valentine’s child with the demon blood in him because he want’s to love Clary and his family that has taken him in but he doesn’t want to be their downfall because of his genetic makeup. So he constantly at war about letting these people in who want to love him and trying to ‘contain’ his dark side.
Perfect by One Direction
So, song goes to Oliver from The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak. It may have something to do with the fact that Oliver is loosely based on Harry… anyway Stella and Oliver does some crazy things in hotels like sneaking into the pool after hours to play chicken, hid from fans trying to sneak a peak at the Heartbreakers (the band from the book), and other things like that. This song is a perfect representation of their relationship because Oliver is that guy who never seems to settle down with anyone but wants to offer Stella himself and everything that goes along with his fame.
Risk It All by The Vamps
I am talking about the Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout again but only because I love it so much. This is song honestly Daemon’s song to Katy because he would burn down the world trying to save her. Despite all of the things that he’s been through with losing his brother to the government and trying to keep his sister safe, he falls hard for this girl and spends so much denying his feeling until he puts everything on the line for her, and once he does, he realizes how love changes a person.
Wild Card by Hunter Hayes
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this song the other day when I was writing my review for The Bookworm Crush by Lisa Robert Browns because this fits how Toff feels for Amy from the very beginning because at first he was just helping her win the competition until he gets hit by these feeling for her that seem to come out of the blue. He finds himself drawn to this girl who is the complete opposite from the people that he normally hangs out with and finds it refreshing to talk to someone who keeps him on his toes!
What are some songs that reminds you of books? Let me know below!
Happy reading until next time,
