Book Tag | Song Requests!

GUUUYYYSSS, Fiction No Chaser tagged me in the Song Requests challenge and I’m so excited for this. I already add theme songs to all my book reviews and I create bookish playlists, because I am also that nerd who hears a song and thinks “OMG this is so [Insert Character Name Here]”. I hope you like my song & book picks!

Rules:

  • Thank and link back to tagger.
  • Credit to Daniel @ Page to Page
  • Listen to tagger’s song requests! After you’re done listening to the three songs the person who tagged you has chosen, choose a book that you think best goes along with that song and tell us why you chose it!
  • Request 3 songs of your own! Give any three songs (and your corresponding book choices that think go well with said song) you want for your taggers to listen and respond to!
  • Tag 5 people!

Fiction No Chaser’s Songs:

1.”Longshot” by Catfish and the Bottlemen

This is DEF Ronan and Adam and has The Raven King written all over it. I looooove this.

Go, ahead and tell me you got all you want
Fiver says you’re wrong
And I suppose you’ve come down to help me
Move things along
And we lapped it up and we’re wise enough to know
How it goes to get me honey
But we’re wise enough to know
How it goes to get me honey
‘Cause we know this feeling all a little too well
Listen, the distance between us, could’ve took a while
Once we closed that difference, you turned up like a friend of mine
Every once in a while, the little things make me smile
As if one of our longshots paid off

2. “Here’s to the Heartache” by Nothing More

This song is so dark and emo and reminds me of Cat and Cole from This Mortal Coil.

What if I told you life was built to break?Mortal
What if I warned you, you can’t outrun your fate?

So here’s to the heartache
Here’s to the mistakes
We’ll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place
So here’s to the heartache

Here’s to the dark days
It’s been a long wait
We’ll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

3. “Lydia” by Highly Suspect

This is Marjorie singing to Merry in A Head Full of Ghosts. This book is so sick and Screen Shot 2019-02-24 at 6.22.16 PMtwisted and it matched the vibes of this song so well.

Black ocean, cold and dark
I am the hungry shark, fast and merciless

I’ve seen better days
So unafraid in my youth
I can’t breathe, much less believe the truth

My muscles will contract, your bones will crack
It’s just a fact cause I am here to win this fight

My Songs

1. “This Is Gospel” by Panic! At the Disco

This song will forever remind me of the Shadowhunter world. 32212384_191594128327306_983399776793919488_n

This is gospel for the fallen ones
Locked away in permanent slumber
Assembling their philosophies
From pieces of broken memories
The gnashing teeth and criminal tongues conspire against the odds
But they haven’t seen the best of us yet
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
‘Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours

2. “Love Like Revenge” by Bad Suns

This song reminds me of Ash Princess and the relationship between Theo and Soren. Screen Shot 2019-02-24 at 6.20.04 PM

I swallow all my fear, it’s clear to me
There’s no good in lies I want to believe
I know, you know, how bad we both need this
Trust me, we can put the past behind us
Meet me at the place where love once found us
But no
You wear your love like revenge
You wear your love like revenge
Swallow all your fear and try to see
There’s no good in lies you want to believe
Am I happy, no, I’m just distracted

3. “Ain’t No Rest For the Wicked” by Cage the Elephant

Even though it’s not my favorite series, I do enjoy the heists and cons in the Six of Crows duology, and this song is definitely a MOOD for both books.

Oh there ain’t no rest for the wicked screen shot 2019-01-13 at 12.32.52 pm
Money don’t grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
There ain’t nothing in this world for free
Oh no, I can’t slow down, I can’t hold back
Though you know, I wish I could
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good
