This week topic at The Broke and the Bookish is all about music and books. I’m going with the suggested topic of “books we’d give theme songs to.” Well, actually, I’m going to amend it to “book series that we’d give a theme song to.” Hope that works for everyone.
If you want to check out the other bloggers participating, stop by their website. It’s a lot of fun so I encourage participation!
Here we go!
Top Ten Book Series that Need a Theme Song
- The Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva (Spy/Espionage). Granted, Gabriel is Jewish, but for all he does for others and for helping the Pope, my suggestion for a theme song would be “The Saint” by Orbital.
- The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward (PNR). I know the Brothers like hip hop, but I’m not a fan. When I think of Wrath and Beth, I think of Darius and how cultured he was so I would pick something other than hip hop or rap. What, exactly that would be…yeah. Not sure.
- Hell or High Water by S.E. Jakes (M-M Romance). For Tom and his past, I’d got with Willie Nelson singing “City of New Orleans.”
- Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill (PNR). When I think of Ethan, I think of classy. I’d go with Frank Sinatra’s “I’ve got you under my Skin.” We do know how Merit and Ethan feel about each other *wink*
- THIRDS by Charlie Cochet (M-M PNR). Is Straight No Chaser singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” too comical for the THIRDS? Would “Bad Moon Rising” be a better choice?
- The League by Sherrilyn Kenyon (SciFi/Fantasy). Maybe something Techno for this series?
- Immortal Guardians by Dianne Duvall (PNR)
- Cut & Run by Abigail Roux (M-M Romance). Is “Bad Boys” too cliche for this one??
- Downside Ghosts by Stacia Kane (Fantasy/Ghosts). Maybe something old school rock and roll?
- Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews (Urban Fantasy). I’m leaning toward Cold Play on this one. “Sky Full of Stars.”
As I’m sure you can, I struggled coming up with theme songs. I listen to a variety of music, but can’t always pull a song title out of my brain! Please, give me some help and suggestions in the comments.
