Top Ten Tuesday & Tune In Tuesday: Songs that Reminds Me of Books

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week was scheduled to be Top Ten Authors I'd Like To See On A Reality Show but it was kind of hard so they decided to make it a freebie week. And I, honestly am at a lost for a topic when I saw Tune In Tuesday which is:

A weekly feature hosted by GReads that showcases music.
This is my first Tune in Tuesday post. Wow! Why did I never found this weekly meme any sooner? Aside from being a bookworm I’m a big music lover at heart.They're topic is random playlist wherein you can share songs from your playlist on shuffle mode or share any song you'd like to share.

With that, I decided to combine the two. This list will be ten songs that reminds me of books I have read.

Here goes:

1. Song: Homeless, Dia Frampton
   Book: Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins

"Everywhere we go is home baby home, home is you're with me."

2. Song: Brighter at Night, Ash Koley
   Book: Along for the Ride, Sarah Dessen

"What do we do when the sun comes down? When all that we do, we do when it's brighter at night."

3. Song: I Got You, Leona Lewis
   Book: Catching Jordan, Miranda Keneally

"A place to crash. I got you. No need to ask, I got you." 

4. Song: Stolen, Dashboard Confessional
   Book: The Summer I Turned Pretty, Jenny Han

"You have stolen my heart" 

5. Song: Skip to the Good Part, He Is We
   Book: The Truth about Forever, Sarah Dessen

"I never thought I'd find the hands to hold my heart. Whattya know? Let's skip to the good part. "
"I do and a kiss and forever starts"

6. Song: Thank You, Led Zeppelin
   Book: Just Listen, Sarah Dessen

 "Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one."

*This song was mentioned a lot of times on the book.

7. Song: Landslide, Dixie Chicks
   Book: It’s Not Summer Without You, Jenny Han

"Well I've been afraid of changin' 'cause I built my life around you."

8. Song: Arms, Christina Perri
   Book: This Lullaby, Sarah Dessen

"I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart. But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start." 

9. Song: Where are you now?, Honor Society
   Book, Where She Went, Gayle Forman

"Where are you now? 'Cause I'm thinking of you." 

10. Song: Glad You Came, The Wanted
     Book: Effortless, S.C. Stephens

"My universe will never be the same. I'm glad you came."

*A facebook page of Kellan Kyle (one of the main character from the book) posted this with this note" "Griffin thinks this song is really dirty. You should see the look on Kiera's face when he sings it. Ahhh, so funny." (And I'm never listening to this song the same way again. Haha.)


  1. This is the first time I've listened to a Honor Society song, and I really like it. I just graduated, so I can relate. People grow apart so quickly.

    1. Yeah, that's true. Glad to introduce you to that song. =)

  2. I must be the only person in the world to have NOT read any Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han or Gayle Forman. But I HAVE read Stephanie Perkins, so yay! Great picks this week. Thanks very much! :)

    1. oh, you haven't read them? Try them, they're great. (in my own personal opinion. haha.) By the way, thanks for stopping by. =)

  3. I love this idea! such a great list! I, too, have never read a Sarah Dessen book, but I have heard great things about them. I will have to check one out!

    1. Thanks! If you're into the YA contemporary, Chick-lit genre, you should really check Sarah Dessen out. =)
