Here’s this week’s question:

Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?

At first I couldn't think of an answer to this question. But then, after some consideration, I recalled a song I have listened to at least a hundred times.

A Thousand Years
sung by
Christina Perri

and the book it reminds me of

Breaking Dawn
(Book 4 in the Twilight Saga)


And while we are on the question of songs and books,
I'd would like to mention that as I draw to the end of writing my first draft of Mystery Rises
(Book 2 in the Mystery Falls Trilogy)
one song I have grown attached to and has featured on the top of my playlist for this book is

sung by
Jason Walker

  2. Holy crap so we chose the same song....not sure what to think of that haha. Happy Friday from Reese's @Reese's Reviews: MA2F

  3. Hopping through. A Thousand Years is a song that grew on me. I don't love Christina Perri, but I liked that song the more I heard it. I hate the Bruno Mars song on the soundtrack.

  13. I love that song (thousand years) and yes when I think of the song, I do kind of things of the video, which leads me to think of the movie, which makes me think of the book. Sadly the book is really far down on that list. Thanks for visiting my FFF. new follower.

  15. Hi! Love that song! Pity I don't connect songs to books. I prefer to read in silence, because if I listen to music while reading, I'll start singing along. :)

  17. Good choice. I love hearing other people's choices and the books they equate the song to. It will make me listen to them in a completely new way.
