Book Soundtrack (1)

I started my own Music Monday last year. I was inspired by all the bloggers out there putting books to music. Since these are two of my loves, I kinda ran with it. Still trying to figure out if I want to give myself the option to do posts like these any time of the week!

Here is an retro-post I did for Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.

The Book
I read this book last year and it was one of the better YA novels I've read so far. I loved how much I hated the MC and then slowly but surely, I started to REALLY love her. Lauren Oliver, you are so excellent. I've been thinking of which book could best go with The Tourist by Radiohead and this one immediately popped into my head. The story revolves around a girl getting multiple chances to live the last day of her life the right way. Please enjoy The Tourist by Radiohead!
What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.
The Artist
Radiohead is one of my favorite bands. While my taste in music ranges very widely, I'd say that they appear on my iPod more than any other band. They are an alternative rock band that infuses electronica, rock and other elements to make their one of a kind sound. I absolutely love them, they are musical geniuses. Check out Radiohead's official site!


  1. I had no idea people were doing this. This is such a cool idea! Recently I listed to an audio production of The Prince Of Mist that utilized music to really enhance the creepiness factor. Music and books are a perfect combination.

    Also, Radiohead rocks!

  2. OOOH that is fantastic! I've never listened to an audiobook, but they should all have music!
