Hey, there everyone, and welcome to this week's Soundtrack Saturday post!
So anyone who might be new to my blog (or oblivious to this meme) might be thinking, "What on Earth is Soundtrack Saturday?" Soundtrack Saturday is a bookish meme that I created so I could share my love of books and music. Each Saturday, I choose a book and post a playlist full of songs based on the characters, the plot, and the themes in the book.
But that's not all. You can participate, too! I'm inviting all interested book bloggers to participate in this meme! Each week, I'll be posting a linky at the bottom of my post so that you can share your Soundtrack Saturday playlist for other bloggers and blog readers to find.
As with all bookish memes, there are a few easy steps to follow to help you create your own perfect Soundtrack Saturday post:
- Choose a book that you've read or are currently reading - any book is fine as long as you can create a playlist for it
- Create a full (10+songs) or a mini (four songs) playlist for the book of your choosing
- For more detailed instructions on the different types of soundtracks and how to make them, please visit the meme's homepage.
- Please credit me somewhere in your post. It can be as simple as "Soundtrack Saturday is a weekly meme that was created by Erin at The Hardcover Lover."
- Leave a comment on my blog post if you enjoy the feature
- Add your name to the link-up tool at the bottom of the post
Summer of Sloane
Erin L. Schneider's debut, Summer of Sloane, is a book about that is so full of all of the emotions that teenagers can experience. In this book, Sloane learns that life and love are messy, and there's really no way around it.
When I was reading this book, I experienced a lot of Taylor Swift feels, more specifically, Fearless feels. I just felt like there were so many songs from Taylor's sophomore album that really worked with everything that Sloane goes through in this book, so that explains why you're going to see a lot of songs from that album on this playlist. I've also included a lot of other songs that really work with Summer of Sloane and Sloane's not-so-perfect summer.
