Book: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
This is one of my favorite books, and I’ve decided to create a playlist inspired by it. I constantly listen to Aristotle and Dante playlists, and I’ve put together songs that I feel truly fit the book’s themes and characters.
Listen to it on 8tracks!
