Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.
So today we are doing something different once more, welcome to if you liked this book you might like these songs. Today we are going with Beautiful Creatures, even though it wasn't my favorite book of all time that gothic setting stuck with me and I want more of it. I still have to finish the series so maybe I will revisited it sometime. The setting of the book is kind of the reason for this top 5. These songs are very atmospheric and fit with the general feel of the book. If you would likt to know more about Beautiful Creatures you can read my review here.
The Civil Wars ~ Devil's BackboneThe Civil Wars did a song together with Taylor Swift for the Hunger Games soundtrack. I love that sound of the song and started looking into their music, I loved it, but it always has a bit of a dark undertone, it sometimes get's very dark and I think it will sooth a place like Ravenwood. Also I kind of associate this music with southern America where the story takes place.
Adia Victoria ~ Stuck in the SouthI am going to give you the quote to explain this one:
There where only two kinds of people in our town. " The stupid and the stuck," my father had affectionately classified our neighbours. "The ones who are bound to stay or too dumb to go. Everyone else finds a way out."
The Pretty Reckless ~ Miss NothingIt is kind of insane that I gave this book only 3 stars, I actually remember quite a lot of it. And I remember Link and Ridley, if they would have a band together I think it will sound a lot like this.
Valerie June ~ Workin Woman BluesThis one is for Amma.
Delta Rae ~ Bottom of The RiverLet's finish with the song that started all this, the song that has inspired me to write this Swinging Saturdays for you. Ans I a hoping you enjoy the setting the atmosphere I have created for the book, and that you are now inspired to read the story, with in the background these songs playing finding your way to the end of this awesome gothic young adult paranormal romance read. Or if you don't like reading I hope I could give you a bit of Roots music for you to enjoy (except the Pretty Reckless that is). Have a lovely weekend and hooefully we can start enjoying live performance soon! No let's enjoy Delta Rae.
