I didn't even turn off the ignition, I just slammed the door and ran straight to my room. Dad followed me. "Naomi, wait! I want to talk for a second". I turned slowly. "What?"

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

This was was easy, because I am in love with music. This one was easy. There is most likely more then just these three that remind me of books, but they where the first in my mind. 

1. Change by Taylor Swift. This one reminds me of every signal destopion book out there. It just has that uprising feel to it. You could play it when they defeated the bad government or while their fighting the government. The best part to play it is when the government gets a win. Wins a battle. And the people are trying to fight back. 




2. Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy. This reminds me of Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. This sums up Anna's and Kai's relationship toward the end of the book. And whenever I listen to it this book flashes in my mind.




3.Come Away To the Water by Maroon 5. This reminds my of the Hunger Games. If you listen to the lyrics it just reminds me of the reaping. 



4. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. This one reminds me of Divergent by Veronica Roth. The epicness of this song is so close to epicness that is Divergent. 





That's my answer, what was yours?
Happy reading

  11. I first heard of Imagine Dragons when I watched the movie trailer for The Host. At the time, I thought they were alright but wasn't wowed by them. Now, I'm completely addicted to their music. xD Great picks!

  13. Yes! I also thought Radioactive fit Divergent! (And then I heard it was being played during The Host trailers, which also works) I haven't read Sweet Evil, but I LOVE that Fine Frenzy song. It's an old favorite. And Come Away to the Water gives me CHILLS. Such an incredible song. Great choices Kimberly!
