After the Woods by Kim Savage

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder
Theme song: Poison by Tarja Turunen.

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,
I don’t wanna break these chains.
Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard
Theme song: Chandelier by Sia.

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 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
Hallowed (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?
The Pause by John Larkin
Theme song: On the Brightside by Never Shout Never
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.
A 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…
Anna 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
Yellow 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
Who…do you think you are? (Do you think you are?)
Who…some kind of superstar
