Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature wherein I try to list at least ten things that are being asked by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s been forever since I last did one of these, so I guess it seems fitting that this week’s topic is something I can really talk about for days.
For me, these songs give me the strongest imagery and visuals for a novel. It may be because of the lyrics or the atmosphere of the instruments that make me go hey, I think this would make a great fantasy! Anyway. Here are my picks.
QUEEN OF PEACE BY FLORENCE + THE MACHINE
Think epic Romeo and Juliet medieval fantasy where there’s even more drama and family feuds and magical powers.
Believe by Mumford & Sons
Think serious contemporary about a hero/heroine with a broken family who lost all faith in love…until it comes back to break their heart once more?
Oblivion by Grimes
Think a creepy and realistic short story by Rosamund Hodge. (Comment if you get the same vibe)
All Too Well by Taylor Swift
Think the ultimate YA contemporary romance…minus the happily ever after.
Don’t Save Me by Haim
Think squads and slice-of-life and school parties. Oh, and some heartbreak.
Kitchen Sink by Twenty One Pilots
Think a coming-of-age story of an outcast where he struggles with his identity and clings on to their [insert hobby here].
I Know by Tom Odell
Think cutesy and nerdy contemporary romance where the guy tries to be cool for this girl he has a huge crush on.
The Visitation of the ghost by the brobecks
Think a comical horror story where our hero/heroine enters an abandoned house and meets…a friendly family of ghosts?
Favourite record by Fall Out Boy
Think your staple YA contemporary about music and how it apparently saves lives and brings forth romance and love.
Last Hope by Paramore
Think your usual novel about heavy topics like mental illness or depression.
