Books and Songs #1

So around the internet, there is the idea of matching books and songs which are something that I really like to watch and wanted to do one of myself. So the idea is that you match books to songs where you feel like there is a link. So let's get started...

1. Winter by Marissa Meyer and Castle by Halsey 


Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)
          




After reading Winter earlier this year, the themes of the book just fit so well with the song that I can not see them as separate things. I do not want to spoil the book, but the song kind of states the plot of this book so do not listen to the song if you have not read the book. 

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Centuries by Fall Out Boy

         

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)




Every time I see this being done, this song is normally paired up with Harry Potter and although I believe that the series could be linked, the Hunger Games is not one of those books that is going to fade anytime soon. I also imagine in ten years or so, people will still ask if you have read this series. 

3. Dumplin' by Julie Murphy and Confident by Demi Lovato

Dumplin' (Dumplin', #1)





Dumplin' by Julie Murphy is about Williowdean trying to be confident with who she is and this is something that Confident by Demi Lovato promotes which makes these a perfect pairing.  

4. Demon Road by Derek Landy and Drive by Halsey 


Demon Road (Demon Road, #1)






The almost dark nature of the road trip in Demon Road matches perfectly with the dark, almost dystopian aspects of the song which is why I believe them to be a perfect fit.  

5. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows and Warriors by Imagine Dragons


The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen, #1)




The book focuses on the main characters trying to gain back the land that they have lost hold off and has revolutionary themes which I think are evident in the song.

6. The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky and Landslide by Fleetwood Mac 

The Perks of Being a Wallflower




This is the original "infinite song"  as I like to call it which is in the book instead of Heroes by David Bowie so whenever I hear this song I just think of the book. 

7. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Amsterdam by Imagine Dragons


The Fault in Our Stars






As most of you know, if you have read TFiOS, Hazel and Gus go to Amsterdam and I remember before the film came out everyone wanted this to be on the soundtrack and it was not. However, I still link this song to the book and the journey of Gus and Hazel.

8. Where She Went by Gayle Foreman and Begin Again by Taylor Swift


Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)






If you know the plot of this book, then you will know the connections between the two. I was also going to pair this with Just One Year but alas...

9. Paper Towns by John Green and Suburbia by Troye Sivan 


Paper Towns






Considering the nature of Paper Towns, I think that this song by Troye Sivan sums up the relationship that Margo has with the suburb that she is living in.

10. Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison and Ultraviolet by The Stiff Dylans  


Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1)






This song is from the book to movie adaptation of the book so whenever I hear this song, I jut end up thinking about the book so...

What books would you pair up with songs? Leave them in the comments below.

See you soon,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
