This week’s theme is Book Soundtrack!
Choose a book you’ve read and pair it with a song that reminds you of the book. (The book/song can be new or old. It’s whatever you like and what reminds you of the story/characters.)
My selection for Hype or Like is a bit outdated. The album was definitely a hype back in the day and the book…I actually don’t know anyone else who read this book.
The China Garden by Liz Berry (blurb from Goodreads)
When Clare moves with her mother from London to Ravensmere, an historic English estate, she can’t shake the feeling that the residents already know her, especially Mark, a maddeningly attractive biker. Clare also feels compelled to take midnight walks in Ravensmere’s abandoned China Garden. Then her mother reveals that their own past is tragically linked to the estate. But when Clare discovers that Ravensmere is in grave danger, will she risk her future-and Mark’s-to save it?
“Fallen” by Evanescence (yes, I linked to MySpace)
I read this book and listened to “Fallen” on repeat when I was 13. It was amazing! I still have the memories of the combo. Something about the ethereal (and yes, emo) quality of “Fallen” paired with the mystical nature of The China Garden were made for each other.
What are your book and music pairing?
