My idea for this came from Angie over at Love Thy Shelf who did this amazing playlist for all these different books. I’ve really wanted to try making a playlist but I don’t normally connect books with music. But after I read A Million Miles Away, I found these songs that I felt went amazingly with the story. Warning: Most of these songs are depressing.
Laughing With – Regina Spektor
No one laughs at God in a war….
No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
Right after I finished this book, I played my Spotify radio and this song came up. All I could think was how perfectly it fit the whole book.
Fresh Pair of Eyes – Brooke Waggoner
‘Cause I want to be seen
With a fresh pair of eyes
The single white tree
In a black hood of disguise
This song really made me think about Kelsey pretending to be her twin, and then ending up falling in love with her twin’s boyfriend. I mean the lyrics themselves are explanatory enough.
The Scientist – Coldplay
Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start
Kelsey does a lot of getting to know her sister after her sister’s death and this song is really just that.
Dear Darlin’ – Olly Murs
Dear darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking
‘Cause I’m cold and alone tonight.
This song’s here because I need a letter themed song but also it’s pretty much what Peter is feeling.
Nothing Left to Lose – Kari Kimmel
I’ve got all the time in the world
and every night to think of you
and empty seems like to last forever
but I guess I’ve got nothing left to lose
Kelsey and Michelle definitely weren’t close before Michelle’s death, but what I love about the book was the journey of getting to know someone after they aren’t there and discovering the things they liked… really I just love the sistery bond.
So anyway, here’s my first ever book playlist! I really enjoyed this book and will post a review up soon. Have you guys read it? What do you think of my song picks? Tell me all about it!
