The topic this week is Book Theme Songs which are songs you associate with different books, whether it’s because of the lyrics matching the story, the tone fits the story, or just because you listened to it a lot while reading that particular book!
Books & Music… much love here since I collect books and cds ^_^ Let’s get started!!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Song: Young, Wild, & Free by B.A.P
OMG YES! B.A.P, if you don’t know them, are a multi-genre group from South Korea. The video below has subtitles. This group is honestly one of my faves so, I’m glad to share them here.
Reasoning: The kids in the book are all… Young, Wild, and wanting to be Free.
The lyrics in the song really hit home for this book at points.
Ex: I get up even if I’m beat to the ground
You only live young once
Just look forward and keep running
Burn up this youth that has bloomed so dangerously
Say I’m the best, my way is the highway
No pain, no gain, I’m fueled with caffeine called pain
The hard part of this is now that I’m thinking of B.A.P I have a book in mind for most of their songs….
Eighth Grave After Dark (Charley Davidson #8) by Darynda Jones
Song: Run by BTS
Another one of my favorite groups from South Korea!!
Now, I don’t want to give any spoilers to what I really think this song goes to… if you know the end of 8 & all of book 9 for this series… I think you get it.
I would also say it fits with how desperate Charley was to save Reyes in the beginning of the series.
Branded by Fire (Psy-Changeling #8) by Nalini Singh
Song: Confident by Demi Lovato
I LOVE Mercy. She is so badass and she is powerful. She knows who she is and what she wants. She’s confident in her abilities and who she is.
I really thought this song was for her.
Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost
Song: Kill Everyone by Hollywood Undead
I swear, I was trying to find a sickly sweet song, had one but then… couldn’t find a book I liked with it so, I started thinking of my favorite series and… well…. damn… this is what came up.
Cat & Bones kill a lot of people A LOT. They’ll do pretty much anything to protect those they care about.
The lyrics might not go along exactly but, at least the title and the feel of the song. Not desperation but, ‘you do what you have to do’ feel and you do it the best.
Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi
Song: Cascada’s songs
One of my favorite animes and a great manga.
No specific songs here. I had about 5 Cascada songs that I listened to on repeat while reading this manga the first time through, from vol 1 to the end — all Cascada songs. It had the right vibe and wasn’t distracting. Sometimes even brought more emotion to scenes.
