Top Ten Perfect Book- Song Pairings

Top Ten Tuesday meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is all about music & books. So I decided to do ‘Top Ten Perfect Book-Song Pairings’. Some songs are straight from movie or musical adaptations… no it’s not cheating.

  2. Gods and Monsters by Lana del Ray and Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

  3. Pet Semetary by The Ramones and Pet Semetary by Stephen King

  4. 1984 by David Bowie and 1984 by George Orwell

  5. Into the Dark by Melissa Etheridge & Shatter Me (and Unravel Me and Ignite Me) by Tahereh Mafi

  6. Belle by Garou & The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (Notre-Dame de Paris) by Victor Hugo

  7. Burn by Ellie Goulding & We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

  8. Don’t Stand So Close to Me by Police & Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

  9. If I Die Young by The Band Perry & The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

  10. Sweet Spring by Tin Hat & Anna Karenina by Lev Tolstoy


Top Ten… I could go on forever…

  1. Awesome list; was very refreshing to see someone take on the “book and song – pairing” variant of this week’s TTT. I absolutely love the idea of Burn, along with We Were Liars. That fits so well! :)

    Here’s my attempt at this week’s TTT topic – I kind of took the easier option with songs I would like to see as books; kudos to you for tackling the harder of the two in my opinion!

    1. Thank you! I was hmm dying to do this! :D No I think yours is much harder, I couldn’t have done that so I did this. Coming up with songs that would make great novels seems hard because novels should be lengthier ?

  2. I love your list too! Ohhhhh the feels for If I Die Young & The Hunger Games! Now when I hear this song I’m going to think of this trilogy! ♥

  3. I love your list! I didn’t really think of Hunger Games paired with If I Die Young but the more I listen to it the more I loved the pairing :D and that song for Dreams of Gods and Monsters is perfect too! haha you have to make a part 2 of this list ;)
