Happy Tuesday, guys!
This week, we're sharing ten songs that we wish were books! Read on for more + some music videos to watch!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies over at the Broke and the Bookish!
10. Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift
9. Rhythm of Love by The Plain White T's
Perfect YA material.
8. Sugar by Maroon 5
There are so many potential questions in a scenario like this. E.g. Why does he/the band choose to do it? Is it to rehab a playboy image? Is he trying to track down a lost love?
(Also, T totally makes fun of me for believing for a day or so that the couples were real.)
7. Wild Ones by Flo Rida
I like that the song sets up a great foundation story - girl and guy find each other, and love the club/wild life. But what happens when they have to be serious? Or can you live the glitzy life forever?
6. Good Life by OneRepublic
5. Where Have All The Flowers Gone by Peter Seeger (Sung by Joan Baez)
While that's not exactly accurate, I do think that this song can be used to write a great book about current conflicts - e.g. Afghanistan. Perhaps an NA?
4. Up by Olly Murs and Demi Lovato
Second, I think this song would be the basis for a great book. It has some great romantic drama - a couple who isn't sure that they want to be together anymore, but are still willing to try and make it work.
I think it would probably be more YA than NA/adult fiction, because it has the will-they/won't-they component.
3. King of Anything by Sara Bareilles
(Also, it's Sara Bareilles! How can you say no?)
2. LA Baby by the Jonas Brothers
I want a REALLY good book about LA. I think LA gets a lot of flack in popular culture sometimes, or any story about LA just revolves around Hollywood. This song can totally be used to create an LA-based YA romance book!
