@itskooreviews tagged me in the Spotify Unwrapped Book Challenge 2021. I love pairing music and books, so thank you so much for tagging me. It’s also great for an end of the year wrap up. (Intro from @ itskoosreviews)!

“The idea of this challenge is to put your playlist on shuffle, and for the first five songs, you need to pick a book you read in 2021 that fits that song. It doesn’t have to be a perfect fit. You just have to explain why you chose that book for that song. There may not be a book match for every song, so please feel free to skip.”

Song: Real Friends by Camila Cabello, Swae Lee

Book: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Hailey is the definition of being a toxic friend. She doesn’t actually care about Starr or any of the struggles that Starr has endured. Maya Yang on the other hand is Starr’s actual friend and I loved that The Hate U Give touches on that.

Book: Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli.

“Have my back, yeah, everyday/ Feels like home, stay in bed.”

Kate and Anderson always have each other’s back. That is, until they end up fighting over the same person.

Leah asks Simon: “Do you ever feel weird?” In Love, Simon.

Song: Shakespeare by Miranda Cosgrove

Book: Misfit in Love by S.K. Ali

Misfit in Love by S.K. Ali via Bookshop.org

This is an old love song and I think it’s perfect when it comes to describing Sarah and Muhammad’s relationship in Misfit in Love.

Here’s my interview with S.K. Ali!

Song: Over Again by One Direction

Book: These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong.

Roma and Juliette reminds me of the line: “Hole in the middle of my heart like a polo/And it’s no joke to me.” These Violent Delights is a Romeo and Juliette retelling with a darker twist set in Shanghai.

You can check out my interview with Chloe here.

Here’s the link for the book!

Song: Soon You’ll Get Better by Taylor Swift ft. The Chicks

Book: You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao!

You’ve Reached Sam – picture I took

You can read my interview with Dustin here!

You’ve Reached Sam talks about grief in a way I’ve never seen before and Soon You’ll Get Better is one of Taylor’s best sad songs.

Alright, that’s all for now! I’ll see y’all in the New Year.
