Increase Blog FollowersThe Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

This weeks Question:

Q: Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?

Yes!! So many. I am the kind of person who will often zone out to a book with music playing in the background, so I have a lot of songs that remind me of books and visa versa.

One of my favourite songs of right now, Let Her Go by Passenger reminds me so much of Looking For Alaska by John Green. There are some lyrics in it that struck me as to what Miles has to go through losing Alaska:

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

I really love this question!! Perhaps this could become a semi-regular feature on BNR.. I’m often reminded of songs through books I read! I’d love to see what you answered to this question also - leave your links in the comments section for me to check out!

What do you think?

  • Ohh I love this song too - thought I have not read looking for Alaska :( Maybe I will now ;) hehe

    I am the opposite. I can’t read with music playing. This week’s question was really hard for me because I just don’t listen to that much music! Great pairing for your answer though ;-)

  • Very cool blog! I’ve never read Looking for Alaska, (I know, I know, but John Green’s books always depress me) But I really liked that song!

    I started reading the book, but then I sort of lost interest so DNF. I just heard the song, and it so nice! Thanks for sharing :)
