You might recall that I’ve been going through my 25 most played songs and choosing a book to pair with each song. I’ve been doing it in posts with five songs each, since I don’t want a post to get too overwhelming, so up to day is songs #6-10. And remember, I never claimed there was a great variety in my top 25 songs.
6. Winter Winds by Mumford & Sons
Book Pairing: If I Stay by Gayle Foreman
This song has that theme of seizing the moment because change, and loss, is coming, which describes Mia’s journey in If I Stay perfectly.
7. Awake My Soul by Mumford & Sons
Book Pairing: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I chose this book with this song because so much of the book is about Karou finding about who she really is. I think the song title is also apt because souls do play a part in the story.
8. Times by Tenth Avenue North
Book Pairing: Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis
9. Your Love is Strong by Jon Foreman
Book Pairing: Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans
This song was incredibly hard to pair since it’s pretty much a prayer set to music. I chose Level 2 because it has some religious themes and also because Felicia deals with quite a bit of self-loathing and insecurity.
10. Time to Be Your 21– Alexz Johnson
Book Pairing: Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I think the general mood of this song is more fun than the mood of Delirium, which is intense, but I think it’s a great song for Lena and Alex’s relationship.
