Hi guys! Hope you are all having a good day (so far anyway).
Today, we have a tour stop for Jordanna Fraiberg’s Our Song blog tour, hosted by Shane from Itching for Books 🙂 You’ll find an interesting playlist guest post from the author herself below. And don’t forget to enter the giveaway afterwards. 🙂
From the title alone, you can tell that music is integral to OUR SONG. The songs I listened to evolved and grew throughout the writing process, and the playlist as a whole reflects a range of moods and emotions. Some songs are sad, some are hopeful, and some are a mix of the two. I found myself listening to a ton of Adele and Lana Del Rey in the final months of revisions. In many ways, Lana Del Rey’s song Dark Paradise encapsulates the tone I was imagining for the mysterious song running through Olive’s head, even though in the book it’s a male voice that Olive hears.
I always love discovering new music, so please tweet me your recs @jfraiberg!
Happy reading and listening!
