I thought I'd start up a little section called "The Sound of Pages", which is where all of you (and me!) can post up books to read along with their very own soundtracks!

Trust me; listening to a certain selection of fitting music whilst reading a book - or even when you're not reading it - is a truly unique reading experience. :D

So here are some to look at:

1.) Splintered by A.G. Howard
Splintered by A.G Howard

My Soundtrack:
#1 - Alice by Avril Lavigne
(Especially the part:
" I found myself in Wonderland
Got back on my feet, again
Is this real?
Is this pretend?
I'll take a stand until the end
")
#2 - Sparks Fly by Taylor Swift
(Allison + Jeb!
"The way you move is like a full-on rainstorm
And I'm a house of cards
You're the kind of reckless that should send me running
But I kinda know that I won't get far
")
#3 - Painting Flowers by All Time Low
(" Strange maze, what is this place?
I hear voices over my shoulder
Nothing's making sense at all
Wonder, why do we race?
When everyday we're runnin' in circles
Such a funny way to fall
Tried to open up my eyes
I'm hopin' for a chance to make it alright
")

I love Alice! (After a while though it starts to sound like screeching, especially in the dark)

Rachel (Velliya) | 424 comments I love to listen to music, not so much when I read, but when I write.
So when it's sad, I listen to stuff like: Yiruma- Kiss the Rain and Rainy Mood (Mashups included)
When it's happy I like: Summer by Joe something or any happy songs really
When it's a cute scene I love: a river flows in you & Somewhere over the rainbow/wonderful world mashup.
When it's passionate or dramatic I like any good rock
etc

But nothing beats my romantic scene song- I can't help falling in love with you by Elvis <3

Lucinda | 1854 comments I love listning to 96.4 Eagle radio when i am writing, as it is a station that plays a lot of current music in the charts and R&B. Most of the time i sit in silence but in an evening i like to put the radio on.

I would also say that drematic music, classical and songs by Kelly Clarkson are great with historical novels (not sure why, but i can picture it clearer in my head?!) x

Song for Will Herondale (Infernal Devices):

- "Everybody Loves Me" by OneRepublic

This song totally suits Daemon from 'Obsidian' as well, or any other "I know I'm gorgeous and I know everyone knows it too" kind of guy. Everytime I listen to it, I can just picture the wicked smirk ;D

Hahahaha!!! That is truly the perfect song for those two!!


message 8: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 862 comments the songs I listen to when reading/writing are usually whatever Pandora give to me (sometimes I just pick my fav. bands). Sadly if the song doesn't fit the mood of the book/ scene then I'll tune it out :(

Another one!

This song reminds me of Will Herondale (yes, again with Mr Herondale - I'm obsessed, what can I say?!) - the bit in Clockwork Prince where he admitted his feeling for Tessa. This song is a perfect summary of Will's emotions, feelings on the despair he feels when Tessa tells him about her and Jem.

Tonight I Wanna Cry by Keith Urban:

"Tonight I Wanna Cry"

Alone in this house again tonight
I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
I'll never get over you walkin' away

[Chorus:]
I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry

Would it help if I turned a sad song on
"All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way

[Repeat chorus]

For Tessa - this song reminds me of how she looks at herself and wonders who she really is, how she has no idea what it is that makes her so special. "Everyday it's as if I play a part...if I wear a mask I can fool the world, but I cannot fool my heart," fits with her ability to change her appearance.

Reflection (Mulan - Christina Aguilera):

Look at me
You may think you see
Who I really am
But you'll never know me
Every day
It's as if I play a part

Now I see
If I wear a mask
I can fool the world
But I cannot fool my heart

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

I am now
In a world where I
Have to hide my heart
And what I believe in
But somehow
I will show the world
What's inside my heart
And be loved for who I am

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
Why is my reflection
Someone I don't know?
Must I pretend that I'm
Someone else for all time?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

There's a heart that must be
Free to fly
That burns with a need to know
The reason why

Why must we all conceal
What we think, how we feel?
Must there be a secret me
I'm forced to hide?
I won't pretend that I'm
Someone else for all time
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

Another song!!

This one, I chose for Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Maas 'Throne of Glass' by Sarah J Maas. The scene in mind is the one where Dorian comes across Celaena playing the piano - a heart-wrenching piece, that brings back memories to her of Sam, the love she lost. It is one of the most powerful scenes in the story and when I heard this song, I realised there was no other song for Celaena.

Gravity by Sara Bareilles

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.

[CHORUS:]
Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me and all over me.

You loved me 'cause I'm fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.

[CHORUS]

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need here on the ground.
But you're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down
You're on to me, on to me, and all over...
Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.

My favourite songs on the album are "Begin Again" "RED". And "we are never ever getting back together" (I think that is the title of the song)
