This week's question feature is
I’ll Tumble for YA

Q:  Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?

 My Answer: I love books that come with playlists from the author at the back. Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine for example, I have a whole playlist for the songs she recommended.  So in that way yeah. The one I always think of is 'Ghost Town' by Shiny Toy Guns. It's weird and a bit heavier rock thank I usually like but it's cool. I also like 'The Geeks Were Right' by The Faint. 

 But my favourite song that I associate to a book is 'Iridescent' by Linken Park. This fits perfectly to 'The Hunger Games' it basically tells their story, the loss, the devastation, the helplessness. 


Love this weeks question! May find some great music from it too. :D 

Happy Hopping & Blogging. :D

I can't think of any songs that remind me of a book. I don’t connect music to books, and I usually read in quiet.

KayKay - I can read pretty much anywhere and up to a few months ago I would have said I preferred the quiet. But lately I find I read quicker if I have music on quietly in the background - so nothing intrusive just gently in the back.

Pooja - thanks!

Fly - Thanks. I love it too.

Thanks for stopping by and following. ;D
