Top Ten Tuesday: Music to Books


Welcome to Lady Reader's Bookstuff's Top Ten Tuesday!!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week is all about music and books.  Such an awesome mash up if you ask me!  There are so many books that I have given a song to as I read.  Honestly though ,I wouldn't know where to start with that.  I decided for this one I would give you a list of songs that I think would be kick ass as book or at least give us something to talk about. 


Songs I Would like as a Book

Familiar Taste of Poison by Halestorm

  This could be all kinds of fun.  Oh, I know that it isn't a typical message but it could be interrupted so many different ways.  Think of the mystery.  Could be done as a New Adult romance/mystery?  I don't know.  This could be a case that the video is so great that I would love to see a book pop up. 

Shatter Me by Lindsay Sterling feat. Lizzy Hale

    For sure dystopia!  Now if I have to be particular I would go with something that is like people evolving.  I know that there are many like that out now, but I think of this in a horror/dystopia way to start.  People are transforming like a butterfly...  As always there is the people that are afraid and the ones that feel this will help us for the better.

Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves

  My daughter and I always smile and sing to this song.  I kind of see it as an epic coming of age contemporary.  The journey to find yourself and overcome the stereotypes that may come with some of the choices.  Because we all know they are there but also we have to be who we are because there is no pleasing everyone.


Lose My Mind by Brett Eldredge


  I actually LOVE this song.  It's fun and the music video amuses me to no end.  This is also probably why I see this as a paranormal and possible love story.  He loves her but is she really there, or is she just a ghost/in his mind?  Maybe she is real in the end...  Maybe he drives himself crazy looking for her?

I Got the Boy by Jana Kramer


We always get happily ever after in a book.  Well we do most of the time.  However, I see this as a happily never after.  Like a failed second chance type deal.  Yes, I realize this is sad but not everyone will get their happily ever after.  So, this a contemporary with a serious tragic twist for me.

Confident by Demi Lovato


We always want confident females in the lead right?  Well what better song honestly.  I see this one as a action/paranormal read.  Possible dystopia.  I don't know, there are just so many possibilities out there.

Stand by You by Rachel Platten

Normally not a fan of songs like this.  However, I think this would make an awesome book inspired by a song with maybe a star crossed Angel/Fallen Angel take?  Maybe it's the lyrics but, we often have a mortal loving one or the other (occasionally torn between). This made me think of the two teams or one fighting for the other.

Somewhere in My Car by Keith Urban


  A New Adult or Adult book about remembering the love you lost.  Maybe this song will strike him to search her out.  Have a male lead instead of a female lead.  I know we don't typically view men as the ones that hold on, but would kind of be poetic right.

Burning House by Cam

  So another New Adult.  I know it seems the typical tale of losing someone and trying to hold on, but this song is kind of beautiful and might make the same kind of book.

Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift


Okay, so my Mom got me in on this song.  Took a bit but I will admit that it is kind of pretty.  Would make a good New Adult Paranormal I think.  Like does she dream him, does he dream her?  Is she cheating on her all start boyfriend with him?  Is he looking to her for an escape?  Do they know each other from a past life?  Oh, the possibilities are endless....

fin...

What do you thik of my lists?  My reasons?  Any songs you think could go another way?  What about songs you would like to see as books?  If you have a list link me up and I will make sure I stop by and check yours out :)
