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?

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
