Hello and welcome back to The Book Theme Meme, a weekly meme that pairs books and music and hosted by me, Lila. Let me explain the rules of the game. If you want o participate, here’s what to do:
- Link back to the originator (Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secrets)
- Choose a book o series
- Choose a song that you feel represents the book (fyi: it doesn’t have to have words, it can be classical or score)
- 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.
- Add your name, blog, and link to your post in the comments!
- Voila! You’re done!
So let’s get to it!
This week I chose to feature my most recent read, Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry and have paired it with the song “Your Touch” by The Black Keys. There are actually a lot of things about this song that remind me of Nowhere But Here. The song has a tough, gritty, biker-ish feel to it. The roaring guitar reminds me of the roaring of a motorcyle. The lyrics also remind me of the instant physical attraction Oz and Emily have to each other.
