How to play:
Put your music on shuffle and pick a book for each song that comes on.
You can choose as many as you like, but I'm only doing five.
1. Outlander Main Theme - The Skye Boat Song [Castle Leoch version] featuring Raya Yarbrough, composed by Bear McCreary
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken - I could have taken the easy route with this and picked the tv show's source material, but I wanted to go a different route for it. I ended up choosing Passenger which was the first to come to mind - it a time travel story with a romance and there is quite a bit of sailing. It seems to fit the song fairly well all things considered.
2. Let Me Be by Kate Rusby
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - I'm not sure exactly what draws me to this book in particular when I hear this song. I think it's more accurate to say Kate Rusby's ethereal voice makes me think of Maggie Stiefvater's writing - if that makes any sense, and that this novel seems like a good match.
3. Roanoke [Instrumental] by Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen - I absolutely had to choose this YA Contemporary for this bluegrass classic, as odd as that may seem. I was so pleased to learn that Mac and his family play bluegrass in the novel!
4. Kiss This by The Struts
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer - Oddly enough this came to mind while I was trying to think of books, as more of a "what if" option. I mean, what if Bella had taken the advice to get out of the relationship with Edward, or what if Jacob had said that to Bella. Not very likely, I know, but still - what if...
5. Heathens by twenty one pilots
And that's it for the Playlist Book Tag! Thanks again, Erin - it was a lot of fun. If anyone would like to do this tag, too, please share your link with me so I can see your picks.
