This morning as I was going through a last look at Book 2 (yeah, Book Freaking 2) before sending it back to my editor, I was listening to some music and tweeting lines that I thought were particularly wonderful. I was getting asked where these lines were coming from, so that’s what I’m sharing with you today. Soon… actually, maybe this afternoon, I’m going to finalize the playlist for The Selection. And I can tell you that one of these songs was very inspirational for a certain character. Have fun thinking about that...
I'll be fine, you'll be fine. Every moment seems so long. Don't waste now, precious time. We'll dance inside the song. -Dance Inside by The All-American Rejects
If you don't know, honey, won't you just say so? Cause I need this now more than I ever did. -If You Don’t Don’t by Jimmy Eat World
I don't have a choice, but I still choose you... I don't love you, but I always will. -Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars
I lost my place, but I can't stop this story. I'll find my way, but until then, I'm only spinning. -Spinning by Jack’s Mannequin
This is gonna bring me clarity... This'll take the heart right out of me... -She Is by The Fray
You are the hope I have for change, you are the only chance I'll take. -On Fire by Switchfoot
And I wanna know would you treat me well, would you treat me like a queen? -Oh Darling by Plug in Stereo
I can hear the sound of your voice still ringing in my ear. I'm going underground, but you'll find me anywhere, I fear. -The Resolution by Jack’s Mannequin
I still try holding on to silly things. I never learn. Oh why, all the possibilities, I'm sure you've heard. -That’s What You Get by Paramore
Here we again. I kinda wanna be more than friends, so take it easy on me. -Animal by Neon Trees
Also! I'm in love with this new song by The Fray. I CANNOT wait for Febtober! What are you guys listening to these days?
