Contagion | Erin Bowman
post image

In my earlier post, I‘d mentioned how I was listening to the score from “Aliens” while reading Contagion. Also tweeted about it, and Erin Bowman responded that she also listened to the “Aliens” score while writing the book. #YA #scifi #ErinBowman #Contagion #Aliens #WritingMusic #ReadingMusic

All Systems Red | Martha Wells
post image

I love when a story reaches that point where the writer has won my total trust. Then it‘s just waiting to see if they can stick the landing. This is one of those times.

I‘ve listened almost entirely to the score from “Tron: Legacy” while reading this novella, and it‘s been a perfect fit.

callielafleur I use this album as background music when I work pretty often. It's great. 1y
CaroPi I am hoping for the last part to come out so I will read the rest in a row 1y

Warcross | Marie Lu
post image

Just starting to read Warcross by Marie Lu. She certainly hits the ground running. Digging it so far. Heard so many amazing things about this book. Can‘t wait! Decided the score to “The Bourne Supremacy” by John Powell might make some good reading music. #Warcross #GameOn #MarieLu #ReadingMusic #YA #youngadult

So far, the biggest challenge in reading Sorcerer to the Crown is a common issue with fantasy novels. There are SO MANY NAMES. Still, I‘m really digging Zen Cho‘s world building. She‘s done a nice job easing me into the rules of this world and the mechanics/politics of its magic. Looking forward to seeing where the story is going. Been listening to Beethoven‘s “Moonlight Sonata,” and it‘s been a nice fit. #fantasy #magic #readingmusic #ERMadLibs

Ruri_kaichou I'm interested in hearing you're thoughts once you get further into it or finish it. I'm 60% through and I am not digging the writing but I like the story in general. 2y
BillBlume @Ruri_kaichou I‘m just about 15% into it. It took a bit to adjust to the writing style (not a book suited to be read while reading other books, I think). Had to lookup quite a few words to figure out what they mean. All the names get me very lost, though. 2y

Background Music | J. R. Rogue
post image

I‘m back with another #backgroundmusic rec! Yesterday I was having a crap day and I was looking for one of my crap day standbys, The Kids Aren‘t Alright on my phone, but Vitamin String Quartet popped up instead. I know I‘m late to the party, but check them out! It‘s all orchestral instrumental covers of all your faves. Definitely a #readingmusic game changer. Totally turned my day around. 🎻🎧

rwmg I was mildly surprised to find that books can have soundtracks. Spotify has soundtracks for The Magic Stringa of Frankie Presto and 2y
MatchlessMarie @rwmg That‘s neat! I like listening to scores if I‘m reading a book turned movie/tv show or vice versa. I did that with the Dexter Series and now with the Mr. Monk series. 2y
rwmg Magic Strings is the life of a fictional rock star so the sound track is his songs and songs of real musicians who influenced him, while Year of the Flood's sound track is the song book of God's Gardeners, a cult in the book. 2y
MatchlessMarie @rwmg I‘ll have to check it out. Come to think of it, I think I did make a playlist from the mix tape mentioned in POBAW. 2y

Thrawn | Timothy Zahn

One of the great things about reading a Star Wars novel is that it already comes with the perfect music to listen to as you read it.

‪Given the comparison on the back cover, the score to Inception seemed a perfect choice while reading Patchwork at the gym today. #Patchwork #KarstenKnight#readingmusic #music #soundtrack #Inception #HansZimmer

Overturned | Lamar Giles
post image

I'm finding Marco Beltrami's score to Logan provides a perfect musical accompaniment to Lamar Giles' Overturned. The book has some dark, grim elements to it, but balances that with wit and heart. I'm about a fifth of the way into this book, and it's been a lot of fun.
