Book Blogger Love-a-Thon: Mini Challenge 3 (#LoveAThon)

It's time for another Love-a-Thon Mini Challenge :)
Mini Challenge #3! For this mini-challenge, we are going to ask you to pump up the music with a book playlist post! Book playlists can be done in any number of ways. First, they can be made up using Spotify, YouTube, or just a list of song titles on your blog. Second, they can be one you made up for a certain book, one you made up for A LOT of certain books, or it can be one that an author made up for their book that you happen to be a fan of. Regardless of which way it is done, share your book playlist with us on a post set to go live at 12 P.M. As always, there will be a special place on both blogs for you to link up. Feel free to visit the other participant’s blogs to see what playlists they came up with!

I pretty much suck at putting playlists together because I have weird muscial tastes. My MP3 player has almost every kind of music on and what I listen to on any given day really depends on my mood. The idea of putting music to a book scares me, which is ironic because most of my music is from movie soundtracks. I do love reading the playlists put together by authors though!

I first came across the idea of a book playlist with Ill Wind by Rachel Caine and I adore that every book of hers includes a playlist so what better to pimp here?! Below is her playlist for the most recent Morganville book Bitter Blood (playlist belongs to Rachel Caine, all links lead to youtube where available - videos belong to youtubers, songs and lyrics to the musicians):

  1. I love when authors come up with playlists for their books! Ill Wind has been on my TBR shelf for awhile.

    1. It's awesome isn't it! Ill Wind is awesome :)

  2. Love your is a great one!


  3. I don't know the book or most of the songs, but I can see you put a lot of thought into this playlist! I love that Queen song by the way!

    Christine @ Oh, Chrys!

    1. It's the author's playlist - I just tracked down the videos. She includes playlists in all her books.

      Thanks for stopping by Christine :)

  4. What an awesome mix of songs! I will certainly have to check the book out and listen to the playlist while reading it!


Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I read and cherish every comment, and always try to comment back :)
