Soundtrack Saturday (28)

Happy Saturday to all of you Hardcover Lovers! It's time for another edition of Soundtrack Saturday! My small meme, Soundtrack Saturday, is a feature original to The Hardcover Lover that I developed after thinking of potential ELA projects. It helps readers and bloggers showcase the songs that they think of when they are reading by creating bookish soundtracks.

As with all bookish memes, there are a few steps to follow to help you create your own perfect Soundtrack Saturday post:
  • Choose a book that you've read or are currently reading
  • Create a mini (four songs) or full soundtrack (ten-fifteen songs) for that book based on characters and plot details
    • For more detailed instructions, please 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 on my blog post if you enjoy the feature
  • Add your name to the link-up tool at the bottom of the post
If you're able to create your own album art, go for it! I sometimes do, but other times, I get so busy that I just end up using the book's cover.

This week's soundtrack features a newly released book by Jennifer Mathieu. Her sophomore novel, Devoted, really impressed me, and I had a great time thinking of songs for this beauty. If you haven't picked it up yet, please do so. You're going to love this book. If you're still unsure, feel free to check out my review and see if it's a book you'd want to read.


  1. "Bible Song" by Sara Evans
  2. "Wasted" by Carrie Underwood 
  3. "Hello World" by Lady Antebellum
  4. "Hey Jude" by The Beatles
  5. "Ain't It Fun" by Paramore
  6. "Not Ready to Make Nice" by the Dixie Chicks
  7. "Beautiful Eyes" by Taylor Swift
  8. "Strawberry Wine" by Deana Carter
  9. "All Kinds of Kinds" by Miranda Lambert
  10. "Who Are You" by Carrie Underwood
  11. "New Again" by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans
  12. "Follow Your Arrow" by Kacey Musgraves

So... I know I included a lot of country in this one, but it takes place in Texas, and Rachel is from a very Christian family. It just made sense to me to include all the country music.

If you participated this week, feel free to add your link to the link up. Oh, and if you posted a Soundtrack Saturday last week, feel free to include it in today's link up too.

    AYYY YOU GOT A NEW DESIGN! I love it :D The owls are adorable!

    Ahhh man, Carrie Underwood. I STILL cry when I hear Temporary Home, and I swear So Small was my high school anthem.

  2. I find the cover for The Devoted really pretty for some reason. I'm not sure that it's the sort of book I would enjoy after having read your review, but maybe I will look into it further.

  3. I've put in one for this week and last week :)

    I love your choices this week, it's all the kinds of country music I love to listen to!

  4. I did! Kaitlin from Next Page Please! did it, and I just love it. The owls were an Etsy find, but everything else is all from Kaitlin, and I just love it!

    Carrie Underwood is the best! So many of her songs make me cry that I can't listen to her in public. lol

  5. The cover for Devoted is gorgeous!

    I didn't think I'd like it, but I'm making myself read some books outside of my comfort level to diversify my library. It was good. It's definitely a different take for YA, but I think Mathieu nailed it.

  6. Yay! I don't even know what happened that I didn't have a SS for last week. But I'm already trying to work on next week's and the next few so I don't have that issue again. I'll be sure to check out both! :)

    I love country music - new country music and old country music. There's just something about it that really makes it stand out as one of the best music genres.

  7. Girl I love the new look! So clean yet cute. I like country music too! Great picks :D

  8. Awe! Thank you, Melanie! Kaitlin did a wonderful job with it!

    Thanks! Country is my favorite style of music.
