Books For Thought: Did a song ever remind you of a book?

Here it is on Wednesday! :)

Previously known as Monday's Question of the Day, Books For Thought is a Monday feature where I post a book-related question up for discussion. I am open to all opinions and enjoy reading diverse comments from my lovely followers. I look forward to picking your minds!

Have a question idea? Share it here and I'll give you credit.

Did you ever have a moment when a song clicked with the theme or plot of a book you read? If yes, which song and book was it?

My Response: I love music just as much as reading. I clearly remember when I finished reading A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford I stumbled upon a song by Christina Perri, "Jar of Hearts." It was hauntingly beautiful considering how similar it sounded to Leah's vibe. There is a part in A Touch Mortal where characters can alter a person's mood just by a simple touch. This section of the song "Running 'round leaving scars/ Collecting your jar of hearts/ And tearing love apart" struck me as symbolic considering the overall concept in the novel.

Plus, the melody and video is awesome!

Check it out below:

Now, if only I found a book that has hot Korean boys as their characters, so I can use this as my song haha. You know I had to throw that in there! Don't mind my obsession. :P

What are your bookish thoughts?

This happens to me all of the time! I love to use music in my teaching, so I'm always listening for connections to the books we're reading in class. So far, The Hunger Games and Romeo and Juliet have been pretty easy. Oh, The Hobbit, too. That's a fun one because we listen to lots of Led Zeppelin.

I have had that happen. Except I don't even think the song follows the book really. It just made me think of how He felt about her. The book was Lover Unbound by J.R. Ward and the song was You are the only exception by Paramore.

Every time I hear "Howl" by Florence + The Machine, I always think of THE DARK DIVINE. I actually wrote a post about it here. I'm obsessed with music, so I tend to draw lots of correlations between it and books. :)

"Once In Every Lifetime" by Jem

This song is actually on the movie soundtrack for "Eragon" (*giggle*) but I think it goes WONDERFULLY to "Finnikin of the Rock" by Melina Marchetta.

Great question. :)

Awesome question!

It's actually a question I discussed on my blog a few months ago after hearing a song that just hit home after reading Matched by Ally Condie.

I posted this Books for Thought on my blog today too! :)

Yeah there was one song If I Ever Leave This World Alive by Flogging Molly it went perfect with Jeri Smith-Ready's Shade. The funny part is I guess she was thinking the same thing because after I finished the book I saw her playlist for Shade and it was on there :D

Yes, definitely! I got so inspired by all these amazing songs I was listening to that kept reminding me of books I'd recently read I created a feature on my blog to post (fangirl!) about it, haha. There are so many but Vanessa Paradis' I Love Paris is perfect for Anna and the French Kiss and My Favorite Highway's In My Heart always makes me think of Sweethearts by Sara Zarr. Also love the song, I can so understand your obsession, the song is very lovely and catchy!

I actually just finished reading The Scorch Trials by James Dashner and soon stumbled upon "The Ides of March" by Silverstein and it reminded me SO much of Thomas in that book :)

I read Falling Under by Gwen Hayes and every time it reminded me of Going Under by Evanescene
