I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I’m reading, I usually have my iPod in my ears, and whatever I’m listening to becomes the soundtrack of the book I’m reading. So then, whenever I’m listening to the same song, all I can think about is that one book, or maybe that one scene, and it brings back all the emotions I felt.
So, I thought I would give you guys some songs that I think are perfect for the books I review. If you do the same thing, feel free to tell me in the comments below and what song goes with what books for you.
(If you’re trying to write a book or short story or whatever, and feel stuck, try these songs, because they sure helped me. Oddly enough, a lot of these are also the songs I listened to when I wrote my book.)
Also, I should warn you that I’m a little obsessed with Marina and the Diamonds, Lana Del Ray, and Florence + the Machine. Just a warning.
