If you've never noticed the meme or are just new to the blog, I'll explain things for you:
Soundtrack Saturday is a book meme created and hosted by me so I can share my love of music with my readers. But this is a book blog, so of course, books are involved! The soundtracks are actually book soundtracks! As I'm reading, or as soon as I finish, I compile a list of songs that go well with the book.
As with all bookish memes, there are a few steps to follow to help you create your own Soundtrack Saturday post:
- Choose a book that you've read
- Create a mini (four songs) or full soundtrack (ten-fifteen songs) for that book based on characters and plot details
- For more detailed instructions, visit the meme's homepage.
- Please credit me somewhere in your post
- It can be as simple as "Soundtrack Saturday was created by Erin at The Hardcover Lover."

For this soundtrack, I started by thinking of songs that would be played at a high school party because that's where all the rumors about Alice started. From there, I followed the plot of the book to come up with a soundtrack that I think tells the stories of all of the teens. I also threw some country music in this one as it's set in a small town in Texas.
Last week, I participated in the Love-a-Thon, so Soundtrack Saturday took a little break. If you posted a Soundtrack Saturday last week, feel free to add it to this week's link-up.
