The Book Nut did another awesome book tag!
Here’s the link to their original post:
For each question I will be giving both song and book that go with the question. They don’t have to go together, but sometimes they may.
Let us begin!
My Jam: A song you have to listen to no matter how many times you’ve heard it and a book that you’ll never get sick of…
Song: I agree with The Book Nut – “Sugar We’re Going Down” by Fall Out Boy. I almost instantly recognize it when it comes on the radio or a streaming playlist. And then I sing along. Badly, but I sing along every single time.
Book: The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I re-read it every year.
Throwback: A song that reminds you of the cringeiest time in your life and a book you read that you would wouldn’t like if you read it now…
Song: “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada. It was one of my ex-boyfriend’s favorite songs. Considering we were together from 2006-2010, I listened to it A LOT. I can hardly listen to it now.
Book: Ugh. I agree with The Book Nut again – Allegiant by Veronica Roth takes the cake!
Replay: A recent song that you have on repeat and a recent favorite book…
Song: I think The Book Nut and I are on the same wavelength. I love “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana. The whole soundtrack is great, but I love the message in this particular song.
Book: The Woman in Cabin 10, by Ruth Ware.
Gets Me: A song that is literally me and a book that is me in book form…
Song: “Mine” by Taylor Swift. It describes my feelings for my husband almost perfectly. I knew I wanted to incorporate this song into our wedding, somehow. I ended up singing it to him during our rehearsal dinner, complete with our bridal party holding handmade posters that spelled out “You are the best thing that’s ever been mine.”
Book: Ugh. This one. So unbelievably difficult.
If I had to pick just one, I’d pick Amelia’s Notebook, by Marissa Moss. I devoured these books as a kid. Amelia reminded me of me – She even looked like me. Totally 90s. Plus, it inspired me to keep journaling and writing, off and on, for years.
WUT: A weird song that you liked anyways and a unique book that stuck out to you for some reason…
Song: “Gangnam Style” by Psy. I love it!
Book: Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide, by Patrice Banks. I wanted to buy this book right after listening to her interview on NPR’s Fresh Air podcast. It’s packed full of information, true stories, and inspiration! As a woman, I sincerely appreciate her dedication to teaching women about their cars (and men, too) and making everyone feel more confident.
Let’s Go: Pick your best pump up song and a book that inspires you…
Song: “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars.
Book: Grace and Grit: My Fight for Equal Pay and Fairness at Goodyear and Beyond, by Lilly Ledbetter. I love memoirs. But, this one was eye-opening to me. It will stay on my bookshelf forever.
Chill: Your best chill or relaxing song and a book you’d curl up with on a rainy day…
Song: “Someone Like You” by Adele. Her voice is so soothing!
Book: Anything by John Grisham.
Addicting: A guilty pleasure song and a light, trashy read you can’t help but love…
Song: “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.
Book: I hate to call any type of book trashy. But, guilty pleasure? Definitely Nicholas Sparks.
Nostalgia: A throwback song you look back on fondly and a book you read and loved when you were young…
Song: “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys. I spent many a time in front of my mirrored closet doors with my hairbrush as a microphone.
Book: The entire Baby-Sitters Club and Baby-Sitters Little Sister series, by Ann M. Martin. I read and re-read them between the library and my own collection.
Tag – You’re It!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
