Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Challenge: Book in a Song

Bout of Books

The Day 5 challenge for the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon is hosted by Janey Canuck. I aimed to complete it last night but relating books and music isn't easy for me. It's not something I do. Which is kind of funny, considering music usually inspires me to dream up my own stories. I wracked my brain for ages, and finally came up with something this morning!

Anyways, first, the rules of the Book in a Song challenge:

Simply tell Janey Canuck what connections you have between a book and some music. Anything goes, really. Some suggestions to get you thinking:
  • Rename your book with a song
  • Give a lyric that sums up the plot of your book
  • A song or album that is forever associated with a particular books in your mind
Post your song connection anywhere you are talking about Bout of Books and post the link to Janey Canuck.

My book and music connection is Open Road Summer by Emery Lord and Taylor Swift. There's a character in this book, Lilah Montgomery, who is a county superstar, and the whole time I was reading I was picturing Taylor Swift. Because of that I started listening to Swift's music while reading Open Road Summer. I think Swift's earlier albums, Fearless and Speak Now, remind me of Lilah the most, though Red fits the book too.

And there you have it, my Book in a Song challenge completed! And just in time!
