Time to bring some music into the mix.
I really love matching my favorite books to my favorite songs. If I really love a book I’ll start thinking about it in terms of music and songs. They start reminding me of the characters and the themes of the books, so I always make a playlist for a book I really love. So I thought I’d share one inspired by my favorite series – The Raven Cycle. I posted this a while back on my Books Amino blog, but I thought I’d share it with you here. I also have a couple of playlists for other books, so if you like this kind of post, please let me know in the comments!
So a little background on this playlist: She Moves in Her Own Way reminds me of Blue so much, from the title to the feeling of the song. Drive (and the rest of Badlands) just screams TRC to me. If you read this, you know cars are a BIG deal in this series, and the tension of the song matches so well to the tension of certain characters. Crystal Ball is an homage to the ladies of 300 Fox Way and Talk Me Down reminds me of Adam so much. Begging for Thread and How to Save a Life just remind me of the series, in their tone and themes and I just instantly think of the series when I listen to them. Control is my favorite song by Halsey and it’s the most Ronan song I ever heard. I LOVE IT. Transpose kind of reminds me of the weirdness and the mysticism of the magic in the series, and Bad Habit kind of reminds of Gansey and Blue’s relationship. Pompeii and Kings and Queens are all The Raven King – it’s high point and culmination. And Wild Things is sort of the embodiment of this weird group of amazing characters.
You can listen to the whole playlist on Spotify.
So that’s it for this post! Let me know how you liked this post, if I should do more and if you agree with my song selection!
