Bout of Books 23 Day 5

Here is the schedule of events for today:

TZC = Time Zone Conversion

10:30am CT (TZC) Morning Announcements with @boutofbooks
7:30pm CT (TZC) Evening Announcements with @boutofbooks


Bookish Playlist

What's a song that always reminds you of a certain book? Is it something the characters listen to? Do the lyrics remind you of the plot? Make a list of at least three songs and match them each with a book. Participants could explain their reasoning in greater depth in the form of a blog or twitter thread, show pictures of the books and caption with the song titles in an Instagram post, or even make a playlist on Spotify or YouTube and share it.

Thanks to Emma (@emmareadsthings) for today's challenge.

  1. Song: Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron & Wine
    Book: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
    Reason: It's the song that plays during the prom scene / last scene of the movie and, for whatever reason, it's always stuck with me. I absolutely love the sound of the song and it spurred a love of more folksy sounding music for me. Every time I hear it, I automatically think of Twilight.

    Song: Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding
    Book: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
    Reason: This was one of the biggest songs from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie soundtrack and I absolutely fell in love with it the first time I heard it. I really enjoyed the emotion in the song and the sound of Goulding's voice. Beautiful song.

    Song: Mysterious Ticking Noise by Potter Puppet Pals
    Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by JK Rowling
    Reason: I mean... it's Potter Puppet Pals. Any HP fan from the earlier 2000's probably knows the significance of this song.
