“Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in you or the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment.” –Sarah Dessen
A huge welcome to hour 15! I hope you are all having fun with today’s Readathon. I know things can get a bit tough in the middle, you’re not quite at the point when you can push yourself to the end and you might be flagging a bit. But don’t worry. You will get through it, just remember to relax, eat some yummy snacks and have fun!
Whilst you’ve been reading I wonder if you’ve felt a particular musical connection to a book, or a character. I want to know what songs remind you of that character, or connect you to something you’ve read today.
For this hour’s mini challenge please tell me the name of the song, and the connection you feel to it.
Here are some hints to help you:
- Why does it remind you of a character?
- Does it symbolise something in the book?
- Are your emotions reflected in the music?
If possible, please link me to the song. You can name as many or as few as you’d like, I will do my best to listen to them all.
The winner will be chosen randomly and will win anything up to the value of $20 from Book Depository however I will also be giving out some smaller prizes to a couple of other people, so make sure you check back to see if you’re in luck today.
Please leave your response in the comments on this post and feel free to share it on your own blog also. You can either post your full response as a comment, or link me to your blog post.
In 3 hours, at the start of hour 18 I will be choosing a winner.
Good luck and most of all have fun!
