Apologies for vanishing off the face of the planet. Really. I feel like I should have some explanation for my huuuge period of absence. But I don’t because I’m a terrible person who has no one to blame but herself for that. 😛
So you know how people say how they love to listen to music while reading/writing?
Music never works for me while reading.
I LOVE books. I LOVE songs. Just not together. I want to witness the sheer fabulosity of said works and enjoy to them to their utmost potential (or until my sister tells me to stop making squeaking noises).
But that’s not what not I want to say.
It’s that songs are freakishly awesome and somehow are a timeline of whatever book I was reading at that time.
Sounds crazy? Allow me to elaborate.
It’s just that my brain is weird, but I am obsessed with one song or another at the period of time while obsessed with something. Books. TV shows. Summer nights Anything. So years afterwards I can tell you what book I was reading at the time when I listened to that song. Like a timeline.
I can literally recite in order like a hundred songs and books like this. Don’t tempt me. 😉
Like now I somehow think of The Book Thief whenever I listen to I Know Places by Taylor Swift. It’s weird. Totally non-related. But it’s become kind of like a theme song for that book.
With each songs I’ll listen to even a year, I’ll somehow be able to tell you what fandom I was super obsessed with.
I’ve probably taken like a thousand Inkheart quotes and made y’all endure them in my posts (It’s just that I’m a tiny bit obsessed with that book. Just a little bit.) but I’ll put in another one because it’s beautiful.
“Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times?” Mo had said…”As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar.”
What song have you been obsessed with lately? Does this ever happen to you? How do you associate books with music? Tell all!
For me it’s Wonderland by Taylor Swift (I’m even listening to it right now) It’s like a 2 in 1 package of happiness; T.S. AND ALICE IN WONDERLAND WHICH IS BASICALLY LOVE ❤
