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
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!
