Daniel’s Song Requests
Song: “Falling Apart” by Broods
Book: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
I mean, the book starts with “It was a dark and stormy night,” so you can only go up from there, right? I want to re-read this book this year. It’s been forever!
Song: “Not What I Meant” by dodie
Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
My mind immediately went to misunderstandings. I know I say “That’s not what I meant” a lot! I think the assumptions and misunderstandings that occur between these characters fit perfectly with this song.
Song: “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds
Book: A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
Daniel, this song made me cry!
It’s so hard to pick just one book for this song! Oh, man!
I knew a Nicholas Sparks book was perfect for this song. After much deliberation, I picked A Walk to Remember because I think the lyrics fit perfectly with how Landon eventually feels about Jamie. The tears, though. The tears.
Laura Beth’s Song Requests
Song: “I’m Comin’ Over” by Chris Young
Book: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I think this song about wanting to be with someone so badly, and getting closure later, can easily be paired with a classic like Gatsby.
Song: “Better When I’m Dancin'” by Meghan Trainor (The Peanuts Movie)
Book: Summer Boys (Summer Boys #1) by Hailey Abbott
When I need a pick-me-up, I’m drawn toward this song. I love how upbeat it is, and makes me want to move my feet! The same goes for Summer Boys and the rest of its series – It’s such a fun series to get lost in. I saw a girl in my high school orchestra class reading it one day. Intrigued, I asked her about it. She graciously let me borrow the first book, and then I found the rest on my own, most through the library. It’s definitely more on the “fluffy” side of reading, but I love the whole series. Now, I want to re-read all of it – Maybe this summer!
Song: “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond
Book: Calico Joe by John Grisham
Whenever I hear “Sweet Caroline,” I think of baseball! John Grisham’s book is the perfect book for this song. In fact, when I first read this book, the song popped into my head a couple of times, and I found myself singing along!
