Top Ten Tuesdays is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is top ten books I’d give a theme song to – complete with theme song!
1. The Hunger Games – Swim by Jack’s Mannequin. It’s a song about not giving up and fighting for your friends and family even when the odds seem hugely stacked against you. I think it’s pretty fitting.
2. Iron Queen – This is why we can’t have nice things by The Blackout.
It’s all about putting someone you love through a whole load of pain, and yet still wanting more even when it seems/is impossible.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer – I Am not a Robot by Marina and the Diamonds
It’s a song about vulnerability, which is reflected in the book. Plus the title itself.
4. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk – Bodies by Drowning Pool
This one is probably fairly self-explanatory.
5. Lola and the Boy next Door by Stephanie Perkins – Roll to Me by Del Amitri.
It’s about being with the wrong guy, when there’s another guy who really does love you, I think it’s pretty fitting.
6. White Tiger by Kylie Chan – Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas.
Again, a bit of a silly one, but it’s self explanatory. I don’t think I’ve ever red a book with so many martial arts scenes, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
7. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson – Shoot me Again by Metallica
This one’s not so much for the entire book, but just for the Lord Ruler, because really. Being decapitated is just a minor inconvenience for the guy.
At this point I’m completely drawing a blank – what are everyone else’s top tens?
