Song & Book Saturday (3)

Posted on 04/23/2011 in Book Review / 6 Comments

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.


My Books:
The Restorer by Amanda Stevens

The Song:
Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven

I chose Moonlight Sonata because it’s both beautiful and creepy, just like The Restorer. It reminds me of ethereal, otherworldly spirits and I can see Amelia among the graves or in Shaw’s large Victorian home, while this plays in the background, all the while, a murderer is at large and the ghosts…they haunt.

See? Beautiful and creepy. 🙂

Leave me a comment with your Song & Book Saturday, I want to check it out!

    Ohhh, this is a good combination! I love music that's creepy. 🙂 I'm going to have to check the book out, it sounds really great. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by! I'm an old follower here. 🙂 Happy Saturday!

    I love this book! The song you picked is perfect to set the mood for it. Very cool meme! I will have to talk to my blog partner about adding this to our weekly memes. Love it!

    I am currently reading Friday Night Bites, the second book in the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill. I would say the song that makes me think of it is: "Back in Black" by AC/DC.

    Perfect combo! I like the book Strange Case of Jekyl and Hyde with the song Rusty Cage, Johny Cash version.

    This really fits the book well, but the book also makes me think of Death Cab for Cutie – can't think of one particular song, just their overall feel. They have sort of a haunting quality, but also heartfelt and beautiful too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I'm now following you. This book is so awesome; I love it a lot! I don't really pair my books with music but I enjoy seeing everyone else's picks =]

    @Andrea: I haven't read that series yet, but I can see "Back In Black" fitting an urban vamp book…totally! (Plus, it's an awesome song)
