Another TTT coming at you, courtesy of The Broke and the Bookish . This week's topic is our own choice of a previous topic aka TOP TEN REWIND. So I decided to go with Books I'd Give a Theme Song To (because I'm feeling a little music-y today and I apparently wanted to do one that would take me forever to complete!) So here we are...
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell : Really, is anyone surprised when this book ends up on one of my lists?? I can't help how much I adore this book. The theme song I'd give it would probably be something appropriately 80s like I Melt With You by Modern English.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte : Lucky for me, this has already been done and done spectacularly! The movie adaptation was horrendous, but this Mumford & Sons song (called The Enemy) is a fantastic theme song for the novel.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness : Uhm, yeah with my new obsession with this series, this book definitely deserves it's own theme song (and I'm sure the movie will have an awesome soundtrack!). I'm not sure I'm doing it justice, but I'd say that Devil's Backbone by the Civil Wars is a good starting point.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern : With the way two kids are played against each other, I'd say a good theme song would be We Must Be Killers by Mikky Ekko
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins : Okay it's been a while since I've read this one, and I know for a fact that there are tons of delightful French bands with great songs, but the song I kept thinking of is You and I by Ingrid Michaelson.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan : Oh come on, if you weren't begging for a musical with this book, there's something wrong with you. I'd probably want it to be more of a new musical like Rent or Across the Universe than an old-fashioned one like Les Mis or Sound of Music or something. So as a sample of what I'd want for a theme song, I'd have to go with Take Me or Leave Me . Which really melds well lyric-wise anyway.
White Oleander by Janet Fitch : I guess just as a song for Astrid in general, I'd like to give her Strong as an Oak by Watsky .
Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard : Definitely This Little Girl by Cady Groves. I mean A might be anyone but Alison was definitely capable of murder.
Daughters of the Moon by Lynne Ewing : Specifically #3 Night Shade because that was always the best. Here's My Moon, My Man by Feist
Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher: This isn't perfect but Unfinished Business by Mumford and Sons has some merit.
What do you guys think? Do you have better suggestions for these books? Or do these songs make you think of different books?? Let me know in the comments!
