Pairing Books with Songs

I’d like to thank Liran at Empress of Books for giving me this idea or at these sparking it.

It kind of happened when she said “Music stuff” and then I looked at the Throne of Glass books while listening to my current favorite song and then:

So I’m going to pair books with songs!

A few things to note before going into this:

  1. I have weird music taste

  1. I would be awful at this! My reading and music experiences never over lap, but thats just me. Ever since I listen to Susan Dennards song that helped inspire Trurthwitch I have become curious about books and music together. I am going to go listen to some of your suggestions for books Ive read 🙂 Thank you
