T5W #4: Book Theme Songs


Top 5 Wednesday is a meme created by Lainey @ gingerreadslainey. To join in on the fun check out the goodreads group.

This weeks topic was simultaneously fun and difficult to do. I mean so many books and songs to recommend, how to pick only five?!

So before I begin, I want you guys to know that I arranged this post in such a way that; I’ll first give you a book title and then a few lyrics from a song that I thought matched the vibe of the book (hope that made sense!)

So here are my top 5 bookish theme songs:

1. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Song: How you Get The Girl by Taylor Swift

Yep I’m starting off with some T-Swizzle. The reason I picked this song is because a certain someone did end up getting the girl after helping her mend her broken heart.


I want you for worse or for better,

I would wait forever and ever,

Broke your heart, I’ll put it back together.

I would wait forever and ever.”

I would wait forever and ever.”

And that’s how it works

It’s how you get the girl, girl…

2. Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Song: Superpower by X Ambassadors

This is such a powerful song and the reason I’m pairing it with Red Rising is because of this specific line which is so Darrow:


I been picking up the short stick

Going from bad to worse

And thrust in the battleground

Come out dressed in furs

3. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Song: Hostage by Sia

The reason I paired these two is because the lyrics really matched the story in my opinion, I hope you agree with me if you’ve read the book/heard the song


You bring me to life then you shut me out

You keep me silent when I should shout

You make me cry and you make me come

You are the cop and I’m on the run

It all begins with just one kiss

I’m held hostage by your love

Put me in cuffs, lock me upI’m held hostage by your touch

This prison is rough but I can’t get enough

The secret life of us keeps me in handcuffs

Don’t lock me up, don’t you wanna free us

I’m held hostage by your love.

4. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons.

Song: Love Song by Adele

In my opinion there is no better love story than The Bronze Horseman, it’s raw and so so heartbreaking. This song matches both the plot and the intensity of the story.


Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you

However long I stay I will always love you

Whatever words I say I will always love you

I will always love you

5. Cress by Marissa Meyer

Song: Walk Away by The Script

I just feel like this song is totally Cress and Thornes relationship!


She’s standing in the heart of darkness

Saying I know you got a soul even though you’re heartless

How could any woman in their right mind be so blind,

To find something this safe

Instead of walking with me she should have walked away.

So yeah that’s it for my T5W, I had such a blast making this post! I hope you guys give these amazing books and songs a try! Happy Reading!
