Words and music is a new feature I am starting here at BLI, I previously used to do it at my own blog Storywings but now we would like the opportunity for you guys to share as well.

Do you ever hear a song and immediately think of a book? Do you ever see a book that immediately reminds you of a song…well I do.

Every time I see the book: The Casual Vacancy by J.K Rowling

I think of this song:

This happened more towards the middle to end of The Casual Vacancy as the characters true natures and situations started to come into the light. I started singing These Days in my head and now everytime I see Casual Vacancy on my bookshelf (which is a lot because it’s got a prime spot) I think of this Bon Jovi song.

    When I see Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey, I hear “Choose me to be the Champion” by Rasputina.
