Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I'd Give a Theme Song To

It's so funny this is the topic on Broke & Bookish for this week, because I was just finishing Scott Westerfield's The Last Days, which is very music-centric, and I was compiling a list of songs that I kept thinking of while I was reading it. Hopefully I can do this list pretty easily lol...okay no, this was way harder than I thought! Eep! Also, I picked all songs that were actually on my iPod, just so you know. :)

Top 10 Books I'd Give a Theme Song To:

1. If I Stay by Gayle Forman--Last Kiss by Pearl Jam
I know the lyrics don't quite match the story, but I can see Adam listening to this in the hospital waiting.

2. Where She Went by Gayle Forman--You & I by Lady Gaga

3. Between by Jessica Warman--Death by Diamonds and Pearls by Band of Skulls
Gives the feel of the book well...not going to say more since I'm going to review it soon. :)

4. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick--Harder to Breathe by Maroon 5
I didn't enjoy this book at all, but this song seems to go with it, very stalkerish.

5. Gone by Michael Grant--Livin' on the Edge by Aerosmith
This song could really go for any of these dystopian, end of the world books lol...

6. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins--We're Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister
Whoa, this video is kind of scary lol...but it gets the feel of the uprising well I think.

7. Lola & The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins--You're Still the One by Shania Twain


  1. I love Last Kiss. My parents weren't into traditional nursery rhymes so my mom would sing me the original Last Kiss to rock me to sleep.

    I could see Adam listening to this song too!

    1. I really love that version too...something about his growly voice lol.

  2. You and I by Lady Gaga is a great choice for that book!! New follower :-)

    1. Thank you! And thanks for the follow! :)

  3. I like the cover for Lola and the boy next door. It always catches my eye.
