I was tagged to do this by Riddhi at Whispering Stories. Considering that I’ve only recently connected with her, she really hit the nail on the head by inviting me to complete a book tag that combines two of my most favorite interests — books and music! It took me a long time to get around to doing this, but better late than never.
A song you have to listen to no matter how many times you’ve heard it before
A book you’ll never get sick of
Truth Hurts by Lizzo. I listen to this song every single time it comes on!
I don’t often reread books, but the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin is one that I can always reread. I already pick up something new when I read them.
A song that reminds you of the cringiest time in your life
A book you read that you wouldn’t like if you were to read it now
Hmm, there’s a lot of cringy times in my life, but I’d have to say that Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes brings back memories of some hard times in my past. I still can’t listen to that song!
Twilight by Stefenie Meyer. How do I know? I tried it, and it was just … painful to get through.
A recent song that you have on repeat
A recent favorite book
WAP by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. I don’t listen to a lot of recent music, but I like this one.
The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdir was a book that I just absolutely fell in love with.
A song that is literally me
A book that is me in book form
I don’t know if there’s one song out there that is literally me, but I’m really vibing with Bad Guy by Billie Eilish lately.
Jeez, me in BOOK FORM? Maybe The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang, as terrible as that sounds. I think it would be really hard to predict how anyone could react when put into situations like Rin was, but knowing me, I would also turn to anger and destruction rather than feel the more painful emotions.
A weird song that you liked anyway
A unique book that stuck out to you for some reason
I Fink You Freeky by Die Antwoord is a super weird song, with an even weirder video, but there’s something about it that I absolutely love.
Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse. The whole story and setting was just so unique and I really enjoyed the whole bumpy ride. I’m dying for the next book to come out already!
Pick your best pump up song
A book that inspires you
Mad Dash by Carl Tricks was always my work out jam. It has a great beat, and good energy to it.
One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London was a pretty inspiring read. I loved the body-positive message, the diversity that didn’t feel forced, and the emotional hurdles that were overcome.
Your best relaxing song
A book you’d curl up with on a rainy day
Fade Into You by Mazzy Star has always been a go-to relaxing song, since I was in my teen years.
As if I need a specific book to curl up with on a rainy day? As long as it’s something good, I’m happy! But if I had to choose, I’d tuck into a nice fantasy or mystery.
A guilty pleasure song
A light, trashy read you can’t help but love
I seriously LOVE Gasoline by Halsey. I can’t pass it without listening to it. Either that or Y.A.L.A. by M.I.A.
I can’t help but love any books that I’ve read by Katee Robert. I love her writing style and that none of the books are heavy or overwhelming.
A throwback song you look back on fondly
A book you read and loved when you were young
Stone the Crow by Down. This always brings back great memories, and I’ve seen them in concert a few times and always enjoyed it.
I remember reading a lot of books, but I loved The Babysitters Club series. It helped me run an effective babysitting business of my own!
