Tuesday Talks – Soundtrack for Favorite Books

Tuesday Talks – Soundtrack for Favorite Books

Hey everyone! Another week, another Tuesday Talks! I love that I’ve been able to actively participate in the discussions this year. I hope to keep it up. If you’re curious about what exactly Tuesday Talks is or want to start joining in yourself, be sure to check out the GoodReads group.

If you could put together a soundtrack for your favorite book(s), what songs would you choose?


Oh I’m really excited about this topic! I loved making playlists at one time, when I didn’t have an mp3 player and would have to listen to songs on a CD player. I would make my own CD mixes to listen to, and a lot of them had to do with love and heartbreak funnily enough. I still love those CDs though, don’t get me wrong. I just don’t think I’ve ever made a soundtrack for my favorite books. I’m going to choose two of my favorite books from this year to do this exercise, and hopefully you guys will see why I chose these songs. Here we go!

Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard (playlist here)

1. Castle – Halsey

“I’m headed straight for the castle. They got the kingdom locked up. And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut.”

2. The Mighty Fall – Fall Out Boy feat. Big Sean

“Your crooked love is just a pyramid scheme, and I’m dizzy on dreams. But if you ask me two’s a whole lot lonelier than one.”
