Follow Friday--Songs for Books

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.


The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!


Q: Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song & the book?


I don't know that this song so much reminds me of the books, but I love the song and I love the books so I often put them together. I love to listen to the song "To Love You More" by Celine Dion and think of possible trailers for the Wheel of Time Series. Especially near the end of the song, when she just sings without actually singing words and the violin is so strong, the song just SOUNDS so epic! It's a perfect fit for such a dramatic, sweeping story!




What songs make YOU think of books?

  1. ooooh, are those...hardbacks? All my fiction is either paperbacks or eBooks. I'd go broke buying hardbacks. As for songs, can't really think of any off-hand that make me think of books, except for may the alphabet song. Hey, it's late. ;-)

    1. Umm...probably. I actually got this pick from goodreads. I only own 1 volume of ASOFAI in hardback. It's the last one, because when I got there they didn't have a paperback version of it, and the e-book was just as expensive as a used version on Amazon, so I opted for the hard copy. :D

  2. Hopping through. I was looking at Robert Jordan's books at B&N the other day. The series looks good. Although I'm also intrigued by the Hyperion series.

  7. The Wheel of Time series is SO good. You're right, with the violin it matches how epic the books are! Great choices and Happy Friday!

  8. I've only read the first book in the Wheel of time series, and that was a long time ago. I'm going to have to re-read that soon. And the song is really pretty :D
