Writing Playlist

Book Shuffle

We decided to do this challenge. It’s hit shuffle on your music, and select a book that it reminds you of it.


Song: Girl With the Red Balloon – The Civil Wars
Book: Where She Went by Gayle Forman
This song made me think of a person being so loved and so wanted without her actually knowing how much. In this book, Mia is the girl with the red balloon. The girl Adam can’t stop searching for.

Song: Atlantis – Ellie Goulding
Book: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
In “The Song of Achilles” the main characters are always chasing after each other. Achilles leaves and Patroclus always runs to the rescue. This song fits this book so well it’s kind of funny.

Song: I’ve Got This Friend – The Civil Wars
Book: Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
If Dash & Lily had never met it wouldn’t have been such a shame, but these lyrics are so perfect for this book. The song made me relive this novel.

Song: Come on Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners
Book: Carry the Ocean by Heidi Cullinan
The moment this song came on, I smiled. I was so happy. And reading “Carry the Ocean” made me just as happy. Maybe the lyrics have nothing in similar but the way it made me feel completely connected.

Song: Lovesong – Adele
Book: Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
This is a very meaningful love song. It’s sweet and melancholy and precious. That is the way I see Darcy and Elizabeth’s romance. It’s quiet too, but it’s very passionate. I’d imagine.


Song: Trini Dem Girls by Nicki Minaj
Book: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
There isn’t much similarities here. Just that it is set on an island and most of the characters are girls.

Song: Chills by Down with Webster
Book: Far From Xanadu by Julie Anne Peters
This reminded me of Mike’s feelings.

Song: Only You by Ellie Goulding
Book: Beneath a Meth Moon by Jacqueline Woodson
I thought of Laurel and how she felt about meth for some reason.

Song: These Streets by Bastille
Book: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
This might be how Dante felt when he left for Chicago.

Song: Jet Pack Blues by Fall Out Boy
Book: Where She Went by Gayle Forman
I could see Adam singing this.
