Ten Books We’d Give Theme Songs To


after the woodsAfter the Woods by Kim Savage

Theme song: Out of the Woods by Taylor Swift

Themes of: thriller, danger, escape, the woods are scary, friendships falling apart.


Are we out of the woods?
Looking at it now, last December
We were built to fall apart
Then fall back together


poison study

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder

Theme song: Poison by Tarja Turunen.

Themes: poison, forbidden love, passion, death.


I wanna love you, but I better not touch
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you, but I want it too much
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison.
You’re poison running through my veins,
You’re poison…
I don’t wanna break these chains.


beautiful broken things

Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard

Theme song: Chandelier by Sia.

Themes: party girl going wild, out of control, self-destruction.


I’m the one “for a good time call”
Phone’s blowin’ up, ringin’ my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love
1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink 1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink 1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink
Throw ’em back, till I lose count
I’m gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist, like it doesn’t exist



Strange Sweet Song by Adi Rule

Theme song: The Passion and the Opera by Nightwish

Themes: passion, opera, singing, music, love, lust.


An Aphrodite for mortal souls
Playing hide and seek in lecherous roles
Their erotic hour, my tearless weep
Their satisfaction, my infinite sleep

and the vocalising that starts at 2.20

storm siren

Storm Siren by Mary Weber

Theme song: Titanium feat Sia by David Guetta

Themes: overcoming abuse, being fearless, becoming powerful.


I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose, fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim, fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I wont fall
I am titanium


13000535Hallowed (Unearthly #2) by Cynthia Hand

Theme song: Hurt by Christina Aguilera

Some days I feel broke inside but I won’t admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide ’cause it’s you I miss
And it’s so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this.

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?


24036930The Pause by John Larkin

Theme song: On the Brightside by Never Shout Never

Cause I’m only as tall as my heart will let me be
And I’m only as small as the world will make me seem
When the going gets rough and I feel like I may fall
I’ll look on the brightside – I’m roughly six feet tall.



acotarA Court of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Theme song: Mr. Roboto by Styx (this is sorta lolsy)

The time has come at last (secret secret I’ve got a secret)
To throw away this mask (secret secret I’ve got a secret)
Now everyone can see (secret secret I’ve got a secret)
My true identity…



french kissAnna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Theme song: Look for Love by Pennybirdrabbit

I liked it best when your eyes were wet
And your lips, they were loosened by the spirits we drank up
You said you’d been looking for a love that has meaning
Said you’re the one, I’ve been waiting for patiently
For love, love
I look for love, love


yellowYellow by Megan Jacobson – (just because you haven’t heard me talk about this book enough, and Spice Girls is totally appropriate)

Theme song: Who Do You Think You Are by Spice Girls

The race is on to get out of the bottom,
The top is so high so your roots are forgotten,
Giving is good as long as you’re getting,
What’s driving you is ambition and betting

I said
Who…do you think you are? (Do you think you are?)
I said
Who…some kind of superstar

    I was already excited for After The Woods, but your comparison to Out of The Woods has made me even more excited for it!
