Song Request Book Tag

Morning, book lovers!

I’ve struggled with what post I’ll write up next. But then I saw the tag ping, and I knew Jess and Teagan from Fiction No Chaser saved me. You need to show them all the love and support they deserve. I love these two ladies, my dark hearted soulmates. 💜 Thank you, darlings!

I love when book tags combine another passion of mine. I rarely see it, so I jump at the chance to do this kind of post. It’s refreshing and gets me on my toes! So I hope you all love what’s in store. Let’s get to it.

Rules

  • Thank and link back to the tagger.
  • Credit to Daniel @ Page to Page
  • Listen to tagger’s song requests! After you’re done listening to the three songs the person who tagged you has chosen, choose a book that you think best goes along with that song and tell us why you chose it!
  • Request 3 songs of your own! Give any three songs (and your corresponding book choices that think go well with said song) you want for your taggers to listen and respond to!
  • Tag 5 people!

Jess and Teagan’s Requests

I seriously need to find new songs because I have never heard of these ones before. But I love them.

“Longshot” by Catfish and the Bottlemen

I almost floundered with this pick. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to pick a book or even a character. But I get a feeling of Sizzy (Simon and Izzy) from The Mortal Instruments. I never thought they’d ever have a relationship past friendship. But these two cuties are worth the wait.

Listen, the distance between us, could’ve took a while
Once we closed that difference, you turn up like a friend of mine
Every once in a while, the little things make me smile
As if one of our longshots paid off
One of our longshots paid off
One of our longshots paid off

 

“Here’s to the Heartache” by Nothing More

Oh God, I’m back in 2005! I love it. I’m getting serious Nina from King of Scars vibes! Even though I had to stop reading that book, her chapters were gut-wrenching.

What if I told you life was built to break?
What if I warned you, you can’t outrun your fate?
Would you believe with time comes grace?
In perfect light, in perfect place
Every dream was mine to lose
And that’s what it took to lead me to you
So here’s to the heartache
Here’s to the mistakes
We’ll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place
So here’s to the heartache

 

“Lydia” by Highly Suspect

Am I the only one who thinks of Cardan from The Wicked King when listening to this song? Especially, after what he did in the sequel, I have no doubt this song represents him.

You’re getting everything you had
Every little thing you had
I’m gonna run repairs
I’ve seen your fucking worst
And at your worst, you’re still the best
But at my best, I am the worst
It’s a curse
Your eyes are lined in pain
Black tears don’t hide in rain


My Requests

I’ve branched out from my typical playlist for this tag, so you’re in for a treat.

“Legend” by The Score

Okay, it’s a toss-up between Jace and Emma from the Shadowhunters series. They’re both badasses and will let the whole world know.

Blood, sweat, I’ll break my bones (bang, bang)
Till all my scars bleed golden
My name’s forever known
(Bang, bang, won’t stop till we’re legends)
Woah-oh, woah-oh
Bang, bang, won’t stop till we’re legends

 

“Locked” by Welshly Arms

Zsadist and Bella from Lover Awakened fit the bill for this song. These two characters have suffered so much that their love story is precious.

Intoxicate me, exhilarate me
Can’t help myself but I don’t need saving
Now there’s no end, the circle that we’re in
Around and round we go
Got me where you want me on this twisted ride
Bite me on the lips, a false paradise
I should walk away, keep running for my life
It’s taking a hold this time

 

“Walk through the Fire” by Zayde Wolf feat. Ruelle

Cal and Mare remind me of this tune. Their relationship has always been complicated. And with that open ending in War Storm, we don’t know where these two stand. Will they find their way back to each other? Or will they simply walk away?

I try to understand
How we’re here again
(In the middle of the storm
In the middle of the storm)
There’s no way to go, no way to go
But straight through the smoke, straight through the smoke
And the fight is all we know
(The fight is all we know)
Did we take too many chances
Did we let too many pass us
Did we throw it all away
Did we throw it all away
Did we light too many matches
Turn ourselves into these ashes

Tag Time!

I wish I were able to tag more bloggers. But if anyone is interested in doing this tag though, don’t hesitate to do it.

For the wonderful bloggers I have tagged, please don’t feel like you need to do this post. If you’re not into it, that’s fine. If you do, link back to my post! Have fun, everyone!
