Hi everyone! This post is going up incredibly early for once. Amazing, I know. 🙂 So. . .
Top Ten Tuesday is created and hosted at The Broke and The Bookish, every week the ladies there create new list for the book blogosphere.
Today’s topic is
This week is all about music & books. We previously did books we’d give theme songs to so feel free to do that! Or 10 songs I wish that were books
Excuse me, I just, I just need a minute. This is like, my topic. If a TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) topic ever belonged to me, this would be it. I don’t know how I’m supposed to just pick ten songs but I’ll do something of that sort.
I am a really, really big music fan so I kind of did a mix up for this post.
Edit: There are now links when you click the graphics. 🙂
I’d like a romance book written in this vein. You know, just the typical guy and girl meet each other, except I want them to first meet in a coffee shop.
I want all the unrequited love story books, right now.
An inevitable The Last Five Years breakup situation really. Bonus points if it’s also told backwards from two different point of views. I want to see the breakup and the aftermath.
High school me would have very much liked a story inspired by these songs. 24 year old me would love books based on these songs.
I’d like something written similar to Perks of Being A Wallflower, which just starts off as being about a kid going to high school for the first time.
Bonus Songs for High School:
- Seventeen by Alessia Cara
- I Lived by OneRepublic
- You’re Gonna Go Far Kid by Offspring
- First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes
- Kids In The Dark by All Time Low
- Shots by Imagine Dragons
- River of Tears by Alessia Cara
- Restless by New Order
- Drive by Halsey
- I Wanna Get Lost With You by Stereophonics
Yes, the inevitable, doomed to be, tragic sad story with no happy ending in sight. I want that.
Well, with all the breakups and sad stories, I’d like a “fun” one. All of these songs are about road trips or just running away somewhere or driving with someone somewhere. I’d like something like that to take place in the summer.
I would like a book that focused on a dysfunctional family or a messed up parent relation. I discovered Confessions Of A Broken Heart by Lindsay Lohan does a great job at portraying Meredith in Grey’s Anatomy. A musical that is basically about this, is Next To Normal and it’s phenomenal.
Well after a couple has broken up, I wouldn’t mind reading about their potential, but not guaranteed reunion. So like a second chance book like Where She Went basically.
Edit: Where You Are by Gavin Degraw would fit this perfectly.
I like books that deal with mental illness and songs that deal with people going through things. So I would love a book to be all about a person’s inner struggles and how that affects their daily life, literally, how it affects them every. single. day.
Finally, I’d like a novel that dealt with a falling out, whether that’s a friend fallout or a relationship fallout, I like reading about how people move on when they don’t have certain relationships in their life. Or how they don’t move on.
Okay, so I know I said finally, but…
~More Bonus Songs~
Devil Side by Foxes
Hell No’s and Headphones by Alessia Cara
Here by Alessia Cara
Everybody But Me by Lykke Li
Make You Like Me by Gwen Stefani
Better Love by Foxes
Lonely Town by Brandon Flowers
LA Devotee by Panic! At The Disco
Those Nights by Skillet
Girls Like Girls by Hayley Kiyoko
I’d love the book version of the entire album, Electra Heart by Marina and The Diamonds. And the album, Froot by Marina as well. I want Kody Keplinger to write both books. Someone make this happen please.
The album, Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen needs to be a book or several books.
I wouldn’t mind a novel written about a person that is in love with a ghost with these songs as inspiration, You’ve Haunted Me All My Life by Death Cab For Cutie and Disappear by Cary Brothers.
Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy songs in general would make epic books.
Yes, I do think of these things quite often. Every song has a story inside, sometimes multiple stories.
Well this was really fun to do! Have you heard any of these songs? What songs would you like to be turned into books?
