Build a Better World: Create a Soundtrack for Your Favorite Book

For Summer Reading 2017, one of the squares on the Build a Better World Bingo Card is “Create a Soundtrack of Your Favorite Book.” I put together Spotify playlists based on two of my favorite books. Check them out below and create your own playlist on Spotify to fulfill that particular bingo square!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park takes place in the late 80’s, and music plays a huge part in the story line. The 1980’s punk-rock scene was well before my time, but I still enjoyed listening to specific songs as they were mentioned throughout the book.  Some bands and musicians which were mentioned throughout Eleanor & Park are: Joy Division, Elvis Costello, Bryan Adams, Danzig, The Smiths, Simon & Garfunkel, The Smithereens, U2, The Beatles, and many more!

Rainbow Rowell also put together her own soundtrack which can be found on her website here!

 

The Raven Boys (Book #1 of The Raven Cycle Series) by Maggie Steifvater

Some of the artists featured on this album, which you can check out at the library, are: The Fray, Imagine Dragons, Fleetwood Mac, Fall Out Boy, Halsey, Hozier, and Twenty One Pilots.

Maggie Stiefvater put together a list of songs she was inspired by, while writing The Raven Cycle series. Check out her list here!
