Love-a-thon Mini-Challenge #7: Let Me Sing You a Love Song

2017-love-a-thon-graphic

Hello lovely people and welcome to Love-a-thon 2017, hosted by these lovely ladies: Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books, Cee @ The Novel Hermit, Kristin @ Super Space Chick, and Mel @ The Daily Prophecy.

Welcome to the second to last mini-challenge of this event! I’m having a lot of fun doing these challenges, as I hope you are, too, and I’m sad that there’s only two left. But for this challenge you bring in your musical talents and dedicate a love song (or two or three or ten) to your favorite characters and tell us why.

Okay, here are three of my favorite characters and the love songs I’d dedicate to them:

Aeduan from Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I would dedicate My Immortal by Evanescence to Aeduan. This is more of a tragic love song than a romantic one, but I think it really fits who he is as a character. Plus this song is just beautiful and I love it and him so it works.

Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I mean… do I really even need to explain this one? I’m pretty sure I’m one among many who would want to dedicate this song to Rhys, let’s be real.

Okay, those are the only characters I could come up with for love songs. I was seriously having a hard time and my mind decided to forget every long song I’ve ever heard. Oh well, at least I got two!

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Who would you dedicate a love song to? Would it be a sad song or a happy one?

Song Title Book Tag

Hey, I found a book tag that I found enjoyable. So, here are the list of songs and my answers to them. (This was originally created by Alice Reeds on YouTube.)

1 – Guns N’ Roses – November Rain – Pick a book with a sad/tragic ending

Allegiant” by Veronica Roth. If you’ve read it, you know what I mean. I just can’t get over it, it seriously makes me sad and mad and just… ugh.
2 – Queen – Another One Bites the Dust – Pick a book with a lot of killing in it

Game of Thrones” by George R.R. Martin. If you’ve seen the series or read the book, you know that every character you’ve ever loved will die, and more. This book is rich in detail, and Martin doesn’t leave out the blood and guts and stuff to the imagination. He describes killing and action scenes very well and it can be cringe worthy. Though I haven’t finished this book yet, I’ve read enough and seen enough to know how much blood gets spilled throughout the series.
3 – Britney Spears – Oops!… I did it again – Pick a book you read more than twice

Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer. I’ve read this book four times during my Twihard fandom stage. And I read the sequels multiple times, too, so, this whole series has pretty much been read more than once.
4 – Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here – Your currently most anticipated book

Queen of Shadows” by Sarah J Maas. This is the fourth installment in the Throne of Glass series and I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on it. Why do I have to wait until September to get it? So far awaaaaayyyy.
5 – Florence + the Machine – No light, no light – Pick a book that was just so bad you’d like to lock it away in a dark corner and never look at it ever again

Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger. What a phoney. Seriously. I really hated this book in school, not because of the story, per say, but the main character, Holden, was a whiny little brat who just wouldn’t shut up and continually swore every other word. It was just a really annoying read and I can do without it in my life.
6 – Skylar Grey – Final Warning – Pick a book with a kick ass protagonist you’d not want to piss off

This Shattered World” by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. The main heroine, Jubilee Chase, is a military captain and who is pretty damn well kickass. I wouldn’t want to get in her line of fire because when she’s mad she can be kind of scary.
7 – My Chemical Romance – I’m not Okay – Pick a book that deals with a hard topic like loss or bullying

This Star Won’t Go Out” by Esther Earl. This was a non-fiction book that dealt with cancer and the thoughts behind them. It’s a hard topic to think about because of how real it is, how the chemo affects the body, and ultimately the loss of a family if that person with cancer doesn’t survive. It made me cry and feel all the feels.
8 – Linkin Park – Breaking the Habit – Pick a book you read which was outside of your usual comfort zone yet you still enjoyed reading

I don’t think I have any books that I won’t necessarily read… So I don’t really have an answer for this question. Maybe “Game of Thrones” just because the book is so huge.
9 – Troye Sivan – Happy little Pill – Pick a book that makes you happy

Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell. So cute. So much cute. I really enjoyed this novel and it just makes me happy to read.
10 – Ladyhawk – Dusk Till Dawn – Pick a book you read in one night/sitting

The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green. I would have finished it in one sitting if I hadn’t needed to go to work the day I read it. It took me seven hours to finish because I was hooked from page one.
