Feature & Follow Friday #50 - Bookish Playlist

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View

How it Works: 

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

This Week's Question: 

Create a playlist for a book - or a single song if you don't want to do a whole playlist. - suggested by This Girl Reads A Lot and Bubbly and Bookish

This Week's Answer: 

So I totally stink at this. I can't listen to music when I read because I am an auditory learner. If I listen to music it will distract me from what I'm reading and I won't be able to comprehend what I just read, it's one of the reasons that I started listening to audiobooks when I travel. So instead I will try and find a song that reminds me of my three current reads.

Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger - Shake it Off by TaylorSwift
So this is the second book in a steampunk YA series about teenage girls attending a "finishing" school like no other. But in this book the MC is currently on the outs with her friends because of her performance and she needs to shake it off. Plus they are both kind of fun and kitchy.

The Young Elites by Marie Lu - Dark Horse by Katy Perry
This is the story of Adelina, a slightly villainous girl with powers that she doesn't really understand and a tortured backstory that has made her dark and kind of evil. It's very Dark Horse.

Legion by Brandon Sanderson - Unwell by Matchbox 20
This book is about a guy who uses his hallucinations to solve mysteries. The opening lines of the book are "My name is Stephen Leeds, and I am perfectly sane. My hallucinations, however, are all quite mad." It's Sanderson so that actually comes across in the books

So there you go, three songs that remind me about my three current reads. What songs are on your bookish playlist? Have you read any of these books? Leave me a comment of your thoughts.

And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, and/or Twitter.

Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!


  1. OOh nice! I'm like that too! I prefer to read in silence, or near to it! I couldn't think of any song for my current read either! I listen to mostly alternative rock or classic rock...and yeah...just none of those songs seem to fit for my current read or even a past read!

    Oh well!

    And oohhhh I still need to read Curtsies & Conspiracies myself! Will keep an eye out for your review of that one!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I haven't read any of these books or heard any of the songs! That seems to be a trend today... But yeah, I'm the same way about needing quiet to read. My husband likes to watch youtube videos in bed while I'm reading and it's SO distracting! Old follower :)
