Top Ten Tuesday: Songs You Want to Turn Into Books

Ahhh… is it “Into” or “into” when it’s in a title? #struggles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  Each Tuesday there is a new theme, this week was “Songs you want to turn into books”

Let’s get started!


1. Hello by Adele

Okay, okay.  I know this a total cheese song, but wouldn’t it make an awesome book?  I feel as though it would have some really sad feel.  Maybe something akin to a really sad  Nicholas Sparks book but in epilogue format – so like 20 years later when everyone is still miserable.

2. Atlas Hands by Benjamin Francis Leftwich

For all of you who love indie/acoustic music.  This song is just so perfect.  A book about adventure.

3. What the Water Gave Me by Florence and the Machine

THIS SONG IS PERFECTION.  Also “No Light, No Light” by her would be an awesome book too.  I think of this like a mermaid/merman themed book.

4. Demons by Imagine Dragons

My top song ever by Imagine Dragons.  This would be about someone reclaiming their rightful place on the throne.  So maybe something like Cleo from Falling Kingdoms, The Orphan Queen, etc.

5. Dirty Paws by Of Mountains and Men

This would be like a YA paranormal book with werewolves.  Probably something like Shiver by Stiefvater.

6. Secrets by OneRepublic

Obviously a person with secrets. #nospoilers

7. Just Give Me a Reason by Pink

My all time, ALL TIME, favorite song.  ANGST EVERYWHERE!!

8. Ignorance by Paramore

Imagine something exactly like The Young Elites / Rose Society by Marie Lu.  Or badass scenes like Aelin/Rowan/any-fight-scene-ever in TOG

9. Stop This Song by Paramore

10. Pillow Talk by Wild Child

Likely a story about a girl and boy who were falling in love but he/she ends up dying.  Probably a Gayle Foreman misery vibe.  Actually, completely like a Gayle Foreman book.

Okay, that’s it!  I feel like this TTT was just to get music suggestions.  Just Give Me a Reason and Pillow Talk resonate the most with me.  I would 100% pay for those books.  Le sigh.  They always touch my heart in a way that most songs don’t.
