Book Soundtracks

You know that moment when you finish a movie and that first song in the credits rolls, and it’s just perfect?

Well, to me, these songs sum up each of these stories perfectly. They’re the songs I can imagine in the credits–if there were such a thing in a book. Many of them I found after I’d written the book, and it just resonated. Some I listened to while I was writing.

Forgive me for my eclectic taste in music. I’m not endorsing the artists or any of the shows—I just like the songs. ;) The links are all to Spotify, so you can listen for free. (It works better if you’re on a computer, and you’ll need the Spotify app. If you prefer a different music service, you can just individually look up each song.)

You are the Reason—Calum Scott & Leona Lewis

The Queen of Gold and Straw

Silver & Orchids Series:

I’ll Stand By You—Glee Cast

Weird choice, I know. But just listen to it and tell me it’s not Lucia and Avery—especially in Greybrow Serpent. I don’t have a song for each book for this series because this one was really in my head. I had it in my random listening playlist, and every time it came on it just clicked.

(This one is a lot newer than the book, but it just fits. I got goosebumps the first time I listened to it!)
