Books with Soundtracks and Playlists Display

The Young Adult book display, which is located by the last row of the Young Adult section, currently features a selection of books which were inspired by or contain music. Twilight fans are aware Stephenie Meyer was inspired by the band Muse to write the series, and other authors are similarly motivated.

To accompany the books on display I have created a list of websites, where you can find lists of bands who helped create the books we have come to love. A list is available at the book display, but I will post the weblinks here for your viewing pleasure.

Libba Bray: A Great & Terrible Beauty

Rachel Cohn & David Levinthan: Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Gayle Forman: If I Stay

John Green: Paper Towns

Tonya Hurley: Ghost Girl

Patrick Jones: Nailed & Things Change

E. Lockhart: Dramarama

Melina Marchetta: Jellicoe Road

Marlene Perez: Dead So Last Year & Others

Lousie Rennison: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson Series

Laurie Stolarz: Touch Series
