OMG That Song Book Tag

Annyeonghaseyo! I can now say that I know most basic conversational words and phrases in Korean. I just said hello formally. Informally, it would be annyeong!

I saw this tag over at Bookmark Your Thoughts and thought it’s really so here I am, doing it! This tag combines two things I love the most: books and music. So of course, I have to do it.


MY JAM

A SONG YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU’VE HEARD IT AND A BOOK THAT YOU’LL NEVER GET SICK OF

Song: I love love love Fall Into You by Night Terrors of 1927. I first heard it YEARS ago and I’m still very in love with it.

Book: The Selection by Kiera Cass. I don’t like it’s sequels much but book 1 always has a special place in my heart. Whenever I don’t have new books to read or I feel like rereading something, I pick it up. And I enjoy it.


THROWBACK

A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF THE CRINGIEST TIME IN YOUR LIFE AND A BOOK YOU READ THAT YOU WOULDN’T LIKE NOW

Song: Naturally by Selena Gomez and The Scene. 8th grade, what a cringey period.

Book: House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I also had a problem of leaving books and series unfinished so I actually spent years waiting for the sequels and read all 12! Oof. Now that I think back, it was cringey af and it didn’t have much interesting plot to go on for TWELVE BOOKS.


REPLAY

A RECENT SONG THAT YOU HAVE ON REPEAT AND A RECENT FAVOURITE BOOK

Song: Breathe by Lauv! What a good song. I only found Lauv recently through To All The Boys I’ve Love Before movie. An IRL friend told to check out all of the artists’s songs so I’m doing that one by one!

Book: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne! I finally followed the hype and bought the book. and I LOVED IT. While writing the review for it a couple days back, I really felt like rereading it so I am! It’s just as good the second time round. Click here to read my review!


GETS ME

A SONG THAT IS LITERALLY ME AND A BOOK THAT IS ME IN BOOK FORM

Song: Right now, it’s Epiphany by BTS! I’m currently falling in love with myself and becoming more confident, so yeah. Epiphany is the first BTS song that I truly love and am obsessed with. I looked for more songs like it by them but didn’t find another, sadly. Jin’s voice is B E A U T I F U L.

Book: Fangirl by Ranbow Rowell! Cath is me and I relate to her so much.


WUT

A WEIRD SONG THAT YOU LIKED ANYWAYS AND A UNIQUE BOOK THAT STUCK OUT TO YOU FOR SOME REASON

Song: I Wear Speedos by Mikey Bustos! I liked Despacito enough but I LOVE it’s parody by Mikey Bustos. Although I have a feeling that the parody of BTS’s IDOLYou Took A Sample Of My Pasta will be my new fav weird song soon.

Book: The Other Daughter by Lisa Gardner! It was my first book by the author and I must have reread it quite a few times. No other book ever gave me the same mystery chills, until I read other books by the same author. It’s still somehow special to me, though.


LET’S GO

PICK YOUR BEST PUMP UP SONG AND A BOOK THAT INSPIRES YOU

Song: I have quite a few, actually! Some old ones are Beautiful Now by Zedd and If I Lose Myself by OneRepublic. The newest one is IDOL which has mad beats. It took a while for me to like the song but once I was in the mood for a pump up song and this came up on shuffle and I really liked it.

Book: Warcross by Marie Lu because one day I want to be the creator of such amazing tech things which are in her book.


CHILL

YOUR BEST CHILL OR RELAXING SONG AND A BOOK YOU’D CURL UP WITH ON A RAINY DAY

Song: I have a playlist for chill and relaxing songs, actually. Other than the one below, I’ll choose Technicolor Beat by Oh Wonder and You Are Enough by Sleeping At Last.

Book: Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid! I absolutely love that adorable book. Also The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang.


ADDICTING

A GUILTY PLEASURE SONG AND A LIGHT, TRASHY READ YOU CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE

Song: I’m not really sure.. I’m not ashamed of my music. I guess I’ll choose Believix for this? I don’t usually say that I love this song but I actually really do. I know all the words and I can sing it perfectly.

Book: There are so many trashy books I love XD A very recent fav is Style by Chelsea M. Cameron.


NOSTALGIA

A THROWBACK SONG YOU LOOK BACK ON FONDLY AND A BOOK YOU READ AND LOVED WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG

Song: Breathless by Shankar Mahadevan! Ahhh what a bloody good song! I still really love it. I actually listened to it a LOT and had the lyrics by heart in no time.

Book: I LOVED Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine! When I found it in the library at 11, I fell in love immediately. It’s a really good and adventurous middle grade book.


Tag, you’re it!

  1. Okay…we need to be friends now ha-ha! When you posted “Saturn”, I had a double take – no one I know has even heard of Sleeping At Last and it’s absolutely tragic! I love that kind of music, that and “folk/indie alternative” playlists. I also tend to listen to playlists from the Suicide Sheep channel…so many good songs that SHOULD be on the radio but aren’t. Ugh…”House of Night” series…reading minutes I can’t get back…

    1. Same! I’m trying my best to get as many people into Sleeping At Last now. I’ve already gotten one friend into his music. Also yes Suicide Sheep! What damn good songs! Since we get only one radio channel for English music here, I don’t even use radio 😅

      More like reading HOURS we can’t get back.. sigh.

      1. Sleeping At Last has this way of literally taking ALL the feels and emotions out of you. I definitely teared up the first time I listened to Saturn – the instrumental music and the lyrics just hit you so hard!! I actually have a yoga instructor who plays Sleeping At Last a lot during our slower flows.

        And YES! So many great songs have been found from that channel!!

        And yes…ugh…
