Hello and welcome to The Book Theme Meme, my weekly meme which pairs a book and a song! Everyone is welcome here so here’s how to participate:
- Link back to the originator (me, Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secrets)
- Choose a book or book series.
- Choose a song you feel like represents the book (fyi: it doesn’t have to have words, it can be classical or a score).
- Post the book/series and the song.
- Tell us what about the song reminds you of the book. Is it a particular lyric/s? Is it the general feeling of the song? Explain a little.
- Leave a link to your post in the comments of my weekly post so we can find your post!
Let’s get to it.
This week I chose the book Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and paired it with the song “Royals” by Lorde.The song really gets at the heart of the book–the haves (silvers) vs. the have-nots (reds). Particularly the lyrics:
And we’ll never be royals (royals)
It don’t run in our blood
is just like how the reds can never be royals because it quite literally doesn’t run in their (red) blood.
