Soundtrack Saturday (22)

Happy Saturday, everyone! If you've been following The Hardcover Lover for a while, you know just what happens on Saturdays on the blog. Yup! That's right - Soundtrack Saturday!

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."
  • Leave a comment
  • Add your name to the link-up tool  
The book I'm using for this week's Soundtrack Saturday is one that is full of lyrics because the main character, Fiona, writes a lot of lyrics in her spare time. I would have included the names of some of her songs in my soundtrack, but many of them aren't named, and readers just see fragments of songs throughout the book.

  1. "Down South" by Lady Antebellum
  2. "Glass" by Thompson Square
  3. "For a Boy" by RaeLynn
  4. "Happy" by Leona Lewis
  5. "Shattered" by O.A.R.
  6. "Over You" by Miranda Lambert
  7. "Holes in the Floor of Heaven" by Steve Wariner 
  8. "Road Between" by Lucy Hale
  9. "Settlin'" by Sugarland
  10. "The Last Time" by Taylor Swift and Gary Lightbody
  11. "F**kin' Perfect" by P!nk
  12. "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson
  13. "Where My Heart Belongs" by Gloriana

So there's my Soundtrack Saturday for Moriah McStay's Everything That Makes You. Don't mind the edited song title - I just didn't want to swear on my blog.


  1. I'm so excited to read Everything That Makes You, even more so now that I've seen your playlist. Lots of awesome songs!
    I've linked up my post for this week. Love this feature, Erin! :)

    1. I hope you enjoy Everything That Makes You. It's definitely a book with a lot of things going on.

      Thanks! And thanks for participating! :)

  2. I LOVE this idea! I think I'm definitely going to try this in the future. :)

    1. Thank you! I'd love to have you give the meme a try some time. :)

  3. Taylor Swift :) in my heart, she goes with every book :)

  4. Ohh I am going to have to listen to these since I just read this book! I definitely agree with the Pink song. And Stronger! And I really like O.A.R. so let's just assume I agree with that one too ;) GREAT choices!

    1. I knew that I had to include that P!nk song when I read it. It just works so well for both Fiona and Fi.

      Thanks, Shannon! :)
