Hey, there everyone, and welcome to this week's Soundtrack Saturday post! I've got something really special lined up for you today, so be sure to keep reading to find out just what it is!
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
Okay... I know I didn't get around to posting a Soundtrack Saturday last week and I haven't really been blogging, but I had a lot of personal things going on. I had a health scare, and I was really stressed out with searching for a permanent job and just all kinds of things, and blogging just seemed to elevate the stress level that I was going through.
To make it up to you, I've got a fun Soundtrack Saturday post to wake you up with this week, especially if you like country music.
I've been reading Kody Keplinger's newest YA novel, Run this week, and I am loving it. This is one that you'll want to pick up this summer because it's just awesome. Aside from that, the book is also full of references to country's greatest singers and songs, and I just knew that it would make the perfect comeback post for this little meme of mine.
Just from looking at the poll I've got up on Twitter, it seems like most of you enjoy embedded playlists, so I think I'll be doing that from now on. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the little playlist that I put together for Run, and stop by again soon to check out my review.
Bloggers, don't forget to link up below if you're participating in Soundtrack Saturday this week, and definitely include any links from last week so I can backtrack and check them out as well.
