Soundtrack Saturday is a meme that I created right after I created my blog to showcase book playlists. It wasn’t the brightest idea because it took a while for people to actually notice the meme, but I have fun with it.
Each week, I take a book (any book that I’m either currently reading or have already read) and I come up with a playlist of songs based on it. I started out by doing mini soundtracks, but it’s grown, and each week (well not each week), I come up with a playlist of ten to fifteen songs. Some of my favorite playlists I’ve created have been:
I created Soundtrack Saturday because I often find that I think of songs while I’m reading. It’s just one of those things that I love doing. You should see my notebooks – they are full of review notes, but in the margins, I jot down song titles. I even do it in my Kindle with the notes feature.
I’m also kind of obsessed with movie soundtracks, especially book-to-movie adaptation soundtracks. It doesn’t matter if it’s an actual soundtrack or a movie score – I will sit there and listen to it to see if it reminds me of the feelings I had while reading the books. Some of my favorite book-to-movie/TV soundtracks are:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Hunger Games
Pretty Little Liars (The producers choose some of the best songs!)
Harry Potter (All of the scores are just amazing!)
