If Lyrics Were Book Summaries

So here's something I've been working on for quite a while and finally getting around to posting. I'd been surfing the net one evening when I happened across another blog ( and saw inspiration for this idea (slightly different and with use of only specific genres) that matched up a bit with my previous Sound Effects posts. So I sat on the idea for a bit and worked through inspiration on a rough draft post until I was ready to share.

Ever see a lyric/lyrics and think "wow, that kind of reminds me of a book or show or movie..."?

I present you my list of five books and their song counterparts I thought were perfect matches.

P.S. I did not present music videos. But I do recommend listening to the song if you've never heard it. :P

P.P.S. This is not a meme or an activity or anything of that sort, but please feel free to create your own book-song pairings and provide me your links for me to see if you want!



1. Splintered (too easy?) paired with Her Name is Alice by Shinedown

I invite you to a world where there is no such thing as time,
And every creature lends themselves to change your state of mind,
And the girl that chase the rabbit, drank the wine, and took the pill,
Has locked herself in limbo to see how it truly... feels.

2. The Delirium trilogy paired with Paradise by Coldplay

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach so
She ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of
Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach

And the bullets catch in her teeth
Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night the stormy night she'll close her eyes
In the night the stormy night away she'd fly

3. Daughter of Smoke & Bone/Days of Blood & Starlight paired with Angels in Everything (Blue October)

Only you can see the true me,
Through all the right, and wrong.
Take hold, the best has yet to come.
You've given me the strength to believe in my heart again!
And now we're here to share this faith.
Stand together through it all.

Can you feel my heart,
Beating underneath these stars?
You're the Angel that came, and took these clouds away.
You made me believe!
Never be weak, be strong.
Live every moment like an Angel,

4. Romeo and Juliet paired with Tragedy by Christina Perri

If you could envision,
The meaning of a tragedy,
Ooh, you might be surprised to hear…
It’s you and me.
But when it comes down to it,
You never made the most of it.
So I cried cried cried…
And now I say Goodbye.
And I won’t be made a fool.
Don’t call this love.

5. The Immortal Rules paired with Animal I Have Become by Three Days Grace

I can’t escape this hell.
So many times I’ve tried.
But I’m still caged inside.
Somebody get me through this nightmare,
I can’t control myself!
So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become.

Would you agree with these song choices? Have you read the above titles? What songs would you think you'd choose for the ones above? Feel free to create your own list at your blog (but please link back and share your link with me as well!) :)
