I love music just as much as I love reading (maybe even more 😬) and for me the two often go hand in hand. I often will be reading a storyline and think of a corresponding song. So I thought it would be fun to play out a musical scenario and ask you which books the “conversation” reminds you of. Hence, finding me my next TBR additions!
You also get to pick the ending! Fun, right?!
Here’s how the story goes (as sung by the likes of Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande and TSwift):
Character 1: Obviously scorned, but takes the higher road. They are totally over it. (But maybe still slightly bitter, this being their go-to anthem song and all)
Character 2: Sees Character 1 and is reminded of better times and actually hasn’t moved on. They want Character 1 back, but had some growing up to do before they realized it. (of course they are too late)
Character 1’s response: Leave me alone, your words are lip-service. I am not buying that you changed. Same old song and dance and I would rather sit this one out, but thanks.
Character 2’s response: Will not give up on proving they mean what they say. But, if its really over, how about one more night for old times sake?
Now here is where you come in. How will this play out? What is Character 1’s final response to Character 2’s efforts?
Ending 1: You aren’t listening to me? I am over you, you are bad for me. Please leave me be: Release Me!
Ending 2: Who am I kidding, I haven’t stopped loving you for one second. “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.” – Richard Bach
What will it be?! Answer by dropping your book recommendations in the comment section. Recommend a book that plays out like Ending 1 or Ending 2. Just don’t tell me which it is – as we try our best to be a spoiler free zone – I will need to read it and find out 😉
Also, are there any songs that remind you of other books? Share those too! I would love to hear if you do the same thing as me!
