Top Ten Tuesday is an original list feature meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

Audio freebie means songs (mostly because I don’t listen to audiobooks, I get distracted easily!). This is my second songs to books post and honestly, just write the damn books already so I can stop posting this and go cry peacefully with my books, thank you!


A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera // Say Something

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’ll be the one if you want me to
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

There’s no way you’ve missed this song, I just want a NA book with this kind of romance that is at the brick of being over – maybe it even does at the end because I’m a masochist and why not cry my eyes out?

John Legend // All of Me

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you

Any genre. Any pairing. Anything!

Hozier // Take Me To Church

“We were born sick,” you heard them say it

I don’t even need to explain this!

Eminem // Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

Maybe our relationship isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens when a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is I love you too much to walk away though

NA book featuring this kind of problematic relationship, pretty please.

Rihanna // Unfaithful

He’s more than a man
And this is more than love
The reason that the sky is blue

Same, but make it really dramatic and heartbreaking for all parties. *masochist alert* I need help.

Ed Sheeran // I See Fire

And if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time

Epic fantasy featuring a brotherhood? I think so!

Sia // Alive

I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

Sia needs a entire shelf dedicated to her books tbh but I’ll take any of her songs, I’m that desperate.

Zedd // Clarity

If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity, why are you my clarity?

I really need help.

Hurts // Somebody To Die For

I could drag you from the ocean,
I could pull you from the fire
And when you’re standing in the shadows
I could open up the sky
And I could give you my devotion
Until the end of time

VILLAIN ALERT! I need a villain POV book, bonus if he gets the girl!

The Irrepressibles // In This Shirt

I am lost in our rainbow
Now our rainbow is gone
Overcast by your shadow
As our worlds move on

This song is haunting. HAUNTING I TELL YOU! Doesn’t have to be a romance book, could be a character driven book?

BRB, crying!

In the meantime, please share this list with your authors and make my #BookwormDreams come true, thank you ♥

  1. Brilliant list, this is such a clever idea for a topic and one I’d never have thought of. You’re absolutely right, there are some song with lyrics that really tell a story and would be wonderful written out as novels.

  2. I love your topic choice! And you have SO MANY great picks omg. I’d a 1000% read books based on Hozier-Take Me To Church, Rihanna-Unfaithful, Eminem&Rihanna -Love the Way You Lie, Sia-Alive, Zedd-Clarity, A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera-Say Something in this order. 😀
    Wonderful list! 🙂

  3. Love your take on this week’s theme, Kei! Ever since I first heard Say Something I thought it would be perfect in a movie. The part of the movie when something tragic has happened and the couple is parting and you sob your eyes out. Actually the did use the song in the trailer for If I Stay but I never recall actually hearing it in the actual movie. #missedopportunity Take Me to Church – yes! Great pick, I’d love to see that translated to a book. Oh, the angst! (Btw, I was howling at your notes: masochist alert/I need help, because I am right there with you. What does it say about us that we love the angst and the pain and the sorrow and the sobbing? LOL) Clarity by Zedd – All The YESES! (Yes’s? Yeses? Why am I worried about how to spell a made-up word? Maybe I’m the one who needs help.) A book from Clarity has the potential to be EPIC. I tend to hear certain songs and imagine them taking place in a movie. I don’t know why because I read constantly but only see movies once in a blue moon. I bet from now on I’ll be imagining songs as books!
