Singing In the Shower Book Tag

This is my original book tag. Yes, I cringed too. So let’s waste no time and get ready to learn a few new songs, and stretch those creative muscles!! I tried to make this as surprising for myself as anyone else. So please enjoy, and if you decide to do it too please tag me or send me the link. I was surprised how many songs I could find that hit the mark so well.

  1. Select a theme song for #girlboss character that you’ve recently discovered.
    Serena from Serena is most certainly a #girlboss. I think she’d appreciate Little Red Wagon by Miranda Lambert, a sort of guilty pleasure.


  2. Your all time favorite character just pulled up in your driveway. What song is most likely playing when you climb in?
    All time favorite character? Seriously? Who wrote this?
    I’m going with Darrow from Red Rising because climbing in a car with him is going to result in some sort of epic adventure. He’s got Back In Black by AC/DC. And Sevro is in the back seat singing it and playing air guitar.


  3. Go to last book on your shelf (or stack no judgement!) A character of your choice from the first chapter is singing karaoke. What song do the pick?
    Mark Watney from The Martian belting out Destiny Child’s Survivor  You know it.


  4. Pick an anthem for a beloved rascal.
    Jesper from Six of Crows would definitely identify is with Florida-Georgia Line’s This is How We Roll. It’s just the kind of song that would mark him subtly different from the citizens of Kitterdam.


  5. You know that one couple that just wasn’t meant to be? What’s their love song?
    It personally wounded me that Dagny Taggart didn’t end up with Francisco D’Anconia in Atlas Shrugged. Their love song would be Night Train by Jason Aldean. *Dreamy Sigh*


  6. Randomly select a book with from an author with the last name starting with C. Flip open to a random page, and the first character you see is singing in the shower. What song are they singing?
    YEssss. It’s Dr. Alan Grant from Jurassic Park!!!! He is belting out Africa by Toto.


  7. What’s song would be your favorite OTP’s first dance?
    My OTP’s are often not cannon, but Gale and Katniss from the Hunger Games should get a dreamy first dance in some secret, sweet wood. How about the acoustic Making Memories of Us by Keith Urban.


  8. The villain from the last book you read is looking for a theme song. What do you suggest?
    Pekka Rollins was a villain from the last book I read, Crooked Kingdom, and I guess he’d probably like the song All I Do Is Win by DJ Khaled + friends.


  9. Think of a tragic couple, they are dancing their last dance, what song is it?
    Ruby and Liam from the Darkest Minds trilogy are my token tragic couple. Their last dance song: Rewind by Rascal Flatts.


  10. Your favorite stand alone book just got made into a movie. What song is playing in the opening credits?
    Alas, Babylon getting made into a movie would be beautiful! Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift & the Civil Wars would be playing for sure.


  11. Pick up the 5th book on your shelf. The main character is standing in an elevator with you- what song comes on that annoys them the most?
    Well, Darrow from the Red Rising trilogy is going up and Lorde’s Royals comes on. His eye rolling is constant.


  12. What’s the last series that you started? The kindest character from that series is sitting next to moonlight pond. What song do you serenade to cheer them up?
    Strange the Dreamer….and the kindest character was definitely Lazlo Strange. If he were sad, a moonlight serenade would actually cheer him up. I’d get someone that isn’t me to sing Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Suede.


Extra Credit: Do any songs come to mind that remind you a setting in a book you love?
The Red Mine that Darrow in Red Rising comes from, their song would have to be Drinking Class by Lee Brice.



So I hope you enjoyed Singing in the Shower Book Tag. And all you fellow book review bloggers, copy and paste. Let’s see what you come up with!!

Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

I succumb. Zombie Apocalypse Book tag will be dragging me into this book tag nonsense, but look how fun this actually is!! Plus I am a sucker for zombie related material.

The Rules:

  • Choose 5 books!
  • Randomly set up your books in order.
  • Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you see.
  • Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them!
  • Cry at how screwed you are…
  • Tag some more people to join in the fun

My Books:

  • Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
  • Pyromantic by Lish McBride
  • Trespasser by Tana French
  • Morning Star by Pierce Brown
  • Six of Crows by Leigh B’Adugo

The first person to die: Edward (Breaking Dawn)

How pleasing. This is going well so far.

The first person you trip to escape the zombies: Jacob (Breaking Dawn)

What? That’s my favorite character in Twilight! He’s useful and loyal. I have terrible judgement. Hopefully my devious plan is thwarted and he’s okay.

The first person who trips you to escape the zombies: Bianca (Pyromantic)

I’m not really surprised, but I don’t know why she’d have to trip me. She can just disappear. Maybe she would disappear on me and leave me to get chomped.

The Team Idiot: Ezra (Pyromatic)

Hmmm….Ezra is daring and would take unnecessary risks. But he could be on my team!!

The brains of the group: Steven Moran (Trespasser)

I am not sure if that means we are in trouble or not. Steven is street smart, but I wouldn’t say he’s brilliant. Not sure how’d he do in a zombie apocalypse, but hey maybe have that Rick Grimes thing going on.

The team medic: Aislinn (Trespasser)

Pretty sure we are screwed, she’ll be one of the first to go. She has terrible judgement.

The weapons expert: Ragnar (Morning Star)

This isn’t so bad! Maybe with some training from Ragnar on how to be a general butt kicker we will be okay. Ragnar! He will save the day.

The team brawler: Mustang (Morning Star)

Well that is an interesting turn of events. She’s definitely dangerous, I just can’t see her brawling. Perhaps the zombie apocalypse brings out the worst in people.

The first to turn into a zombie: Jesper (Six of Crows)

I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand-NOOOOOOO. On the other hand- he isn’t the most reliable person. There was the business of revealing secrets, but he is very good with a gun.

The team leader: Nina (Six of Crows)

Can we please nominate Nina to team medic? It’s not that I don’t think that she could do it, it’s just….her witchy powers would be so handy for healing. But could she bring down the zombies from a distance? This would give her a clear advantage. Hmmm….

I am not really sure we will make it for long. It’s not terribly weak. I give us 3 months! Maybe 6 months if I don’t kill Jacob and we can keep our medic alive.

I tag: YOU! Reading this.
