Soundtrack Saturday (2)

Soundtrack Saturday is a book meme that I created so I can share my picks for some songs that I think of when I'm reading a book.

I'll be completely honest here. I think of music all the time when I'm reading. I just love imagining a certain song that fits a moment in a book. Or I think of a song that suits a character. It's kind of my thing.

It's pretty simple to participate in Soundtrack Saturday, and you only need to think of four songs each week to go along with a book you're reading or have read. Trust me on this one. It's easier to use a book you've read recently.

  • You can use my image or make one of your own
  • Please link back to my blog somewhere in your post
  • Create a soundtrack for your chosen book
  • Add your name to the link-up tool so others can find and read your post
  • Have fun
  • Include a song that you think goes well with the beginning of your chosen book
  • Include a song you think fits a character in your chosen book
  • Include a song that represents a relationship in your chosen book
  • Include a song that fits the ending of the book

This week, I'm making a soundtrack for Cress by Marissa Meyer.

Opening Song:
"Everybody Hurts" by Avril Lavigne
In the beginning of the book, Cress (our Rapunzel figure) is trapped in a satellite. She really has nowhere to go. I can't imagine feeling so alone like that, especially with such a vast view of the solar system and the stars. She must feel so sad and angry a lot, especially when her satellite passes Luna. It's okay to feel hurt because it happens to everyone.

Character Song:
"Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran
I've chosen "Give Me Love" as the character song for Cress. She has done her research on Captain Thorne, and she is so convinced that she is in love with him. When she finally meets him, she is almost starstruck. She desperately wishes for him to feel the same way about her. She wants his love.

Relationship Song:
"Lightweight" by Demi Lovato
I think that "Lightweight" is the perfect song for the relationship between Cress and Thorne. She hasn't really had any social interaction, and all of a sudden, she is in a pretty strange situation with Captain Thorne. She has feelings from him from her research, but she's never even had a real friend. The more and more they get to know each other, the more they both realize that they are in completely new territory.

Ending Song:
"Roar" by Katy Perry
Cinder is here, and she is ready to cause a riot. She has finally admitted something very important about herself, and she's ready to take on the evil forces in the galaxy.


  1. I love the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! I only read Cinder, but I haven't continued the rest of the trilogy yet! I hope I get to continue it, though :D I love Everybody Hurts by Avril Lavigne. I would listen to that song every time I was sad. Even if I haven't read it yet, I really do think the songs really fit. Love the songs you picked xx

    1. You totally need to finish the rest of the released books because Fairest and Winter are coming out soon! :)

      I like Avril Lavigne. I don't think she gets enough credit.

      And thank you! :D

  2. Aw, I always liked 'Lightweight.' Fun post, Erin.

    1. I think "Lightweight" is one of my all time favorite Demi Lovato songs. It's so beautiful.

  3. I'm reading Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover soon so I'm going to use this meme for that!

    1. Oh. I can't wait to see what you come up with! :)
