Books & Songs # 2

It’s been way too long since I last did a post like this. Books and music are some of my favourite things and in my case, one goes along with the other. I tend to listen to (instrumental) music while reading because it helps me concentrate and erase the outside world. However, sometimes there are some non instrumental songs that fit or resemble the story you’re living at the moment and that’s what I’m gonna do today. I have 4 songs that, in my opinion, fit some part of the plot or a character within the book. Hope you enjoy this! ;)

  • Book: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Song: Haunting by Halsey
This song reminds me of Ronan, and sometimes of Adam. It’s hard to explain since this series as a whole is very mystifying but there is something about the lyrics that make me think of them.

  • BookRuin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
  • Song: Hunter & Prey by Emmelie de Forest
This song fits the relationship between Alina, Mal & the Darkling and I love it because it’s a perfect representation in my opinion of Alina’s struggle throughout the entire book.

  • BookThe Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
  • Song: Run Boy Run by Woodkid
Besides being an awesome motivator due to its powerful rhythm, Run Boy Run can also describe very much so the different situations both Kelsier and Elend are living.

  • BookThe Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • Song: Still Here by Digital Daggers
Whenever I listen to this song I think of Mara, her mental state and her situation with Noah during the second book.

Do you guys like listening to music while reading? Are there any songs that remind you of certain stories or characters?
