Welcome to Song & Book Saturday! S&BS is a great way for us to share some of our favorite books and songs, together and it’s really easy: just think of a book and an accompanying song that reminds you of said book. Let us know why you think of that book when hearing this particular song (it doesn’t have to be profound, it can even be, “it came on the radio while I was reading my book, and now it’s stuck forever OMG”). You can also be more specific and tell us what character a song reminds you of. Then link back here with your post in the Linky at the bottom and say hello to other followers of S&BS! Make sure you also grab the button below to place somewhere in your post so other followers can easily find you.
Cameo the Assassin by Dawn McCullough-White
Save Yourself by Stabbing Westward
I’ve always loved Stabbing Westward. Let’s face it, I’m a child of the 90’s. But the message of the song fits Cameo well. Have a looksie and then listen for yourself. And read the book!
I know your life is empty And you hate to face this world alone So you’re searching for an angel Someone who can make you whole I can not save you I can’t even save myself So just save yourself
I know that you’ve been damaged Your soul has suffered such abuse But I am not your savior I am just as f*cked as you (I am just as f*cked as you) I can not save you I can’t even save myself So just save yourself
Please don’t take pity on me Please don’t take pity on me Please don’t take pity on me Please don’t take pity on me
My life has been a nightmare My soul is fractured to the bone And if I must be lonely, I think I’d rather be alone I think I’d rather be alone
You can not save me You can’t even save yourself I can not save you I can’t even save myself Save yourself So just save yourself
Cameo thinks she’s soul-less, being in the thrall of a vampire. She’s the walking dead, hired by the Association to assassinate anyone they don’t like. She is a pawn in their wicked, twisted games. And she thinks she’s f*cked. She doesn’t want pity, she just wants to survive. To save herself.

Jennifer became addicted to books when she randomly picked up a Sweet Valley High book in grade school. She never looked back. After blowing through the SVH and SVU series faster than her parents could put them in her hands, she began perusing her stepfather's bookshelves and reading fantasy like Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series, which she still maintains is some of the best fantasy ever. She collects books like the Duggar family collects kids and began waiting for her Hogwarts letter at the tender age of 33.
