Soundtrack Saturday (41)

I love books. I love music. I love it when the two are paired up, so I thought I'd create a feature to highlight both of my loves.

Soundtrack Saturday is a meme created and hosted by me, right here on The Hardcover Lover! So what is Soundtrack Saturday? It's a feature about bookish playlists! Each Saturday, I choose a book and post a playlist based on it! 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

Where You'll Find Me

Where You'll Find Me by Natasha Friend is a lovely book that perfectly blends the troubles that teenagers face during middle school. In fact, I think it's the perfect blend of middle grade and young adult fiction.

In this book, a thirteen-year-old girl has to face eighth grade alone after being ditched by her best friend and after her mom's attempted suicide. It's a moving novel, and it's also full of music that's empowing. Ms. Friend includes a lot of music in it that helps Anna out and become her own person, and I really enjoyed her picks for Anna and her friends.

1. "I Am Woman" by Helen Reddy
2. "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys
3. "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera
4. "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson
5. "Roar" by Katy Perry
6. "Crazy Dreams" by Patsy Cline
7. "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus
8. "Live While You Were Dying" by Tim McGraw
9. "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett
10. "Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
11. "Brave" by Sara Bareilles

Natasha Friend's Where You'll Find Me comes out on March 8, 2016, but I really hope these fun tunes have piqued your interest in the book. It's a charming novel that I think will reach readers of all ages.

If you have read Where You'll Find Me, I hope you can enjoy this playlist that I created for the novel. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.
