Soundtrack Saturday (17)

Happy Saturday, everyone! You know what that means... another edition of Soundtrack Saturday! In case you're a new follower or just noticing this meme, here's what it's all about:

Soundtrack Saturday is a book meme created and hosted by me so I can share my love of music with my readers. There is a catch, though... The soundtracks are book soundtracks! 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.
  • Please comment on my post, so I can be sure to check out your post
  • Add your name to the link-up tool 
This week's book for Soundtrack Saturday, Open Road Summer, is theme-heavy on music, and the author, Emery Lord, even penned a few songs herself for the book. I'm including those song in my track listing, and they will be denoted with an asterisk. In addition to those, which I'm sure we be lovely, I'm including some other songs that came to mind when I was reading.

  1. "Open Road Summer"  by Lilah Montgomery* 
  2. "Starts with Goodbye" by Carrie Underwood
  3. "Middle of Nowhere, Tennessee" by Lilah Montgomery*
  4. "Wasting All These Tears" by Cassadee Pope
  5. "Tomorrow" by Chris Young
  6. "The Outside" by Taylor Swift
  7. "Guinevere" by the Eli Young Band
  8. "Human" by Matt Finch*
  9. "Young in America" by Danielle Bradbery
  10. "Wide Open Spaces" by the Dixie Chicks
  11. "So Easy" by Elizabeth Huett
  12. "Yet" by Matt Finch*
  13. "If I'm Not in Love with You" by Faith Hill
  14. "I'm Only Me When I'm With You" by Taylor Swift
  15. "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line
  16. "This Kiss" by Faith Hill

So I know I've been slacking on my Soundtrack Saturday posts, but I've been kind of busy. And a lot of the books I've been reading make it really hard to pick songs. I know some of my readers have kept up with the meme, so feel free to share any links from the past in this week's link up!


  1. I love that you included so many country songs! :)

    1. Country is my favorite music genre, so when I saw that Lilah was a country singer, I knew I'd have a good time with this one. :)

  2. I can tell by those songs I'll enjoy the book :) Picking songs must be hard, I completely understand not being able to do it! I really want to do one, but I don't think I'm musical enough...

    1. This book was seriously so good. Emery Lord is definitely one of the best contemporary writers out there, and I can't wait to get my hands on her next book. :)

      It can be hard picking songs, especially for quite a few of the books I've read recently. I've just got to sit down one day and schedule two months worth of Soundtrack Saturdays. lol

  3. I'm saving this post for when I get around to reading this book :) - Maggie @ macarons & paperbacks

    1. Awe. Thank you!

      I hope that when you finally get around to reading Open Road Summer, you really enjoy it. It's such a sweet book. :)
