From Dust Till Dawn Read-A-Thon: GIVEAWAY!

As part of the From Dusk Till Dawn Read-A-Thon, I'm hosting a giveaway! And, I'm so excited!

When thinking about this giveaway and the challenge that I'd want to host, I really wanted to do something that revolved around music. I don't know about all of you, but I love music. When I read a book, I am constantly thinking of songs that would go with it. The book that I'm reading right now is no exception.

For this challenge, I'd like you to think of one song that would appear on the soundtrack (if there were such a thing) for the book that you're currently reading. You may either leave a link to a video or lyrics in the comments section of this post, or you can create a blog post and use Mr. Linky. Make sure to leave an email if you're just commenting!

The winner of this challenge will receive an ARC of A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley. Here's a little picture, because the cover is so darn pretty!


And, for inspiration and because I'm a total nerd, here's the song that I'd choose to be on the soundtrack for Scott Westerfeld's Pretties. It's by Courtney Love and it's called "Doll Parts".

  1. QUESTIONS

    When does this end, and do we need to be a part of the challenge to enter? What with school I simply can't take part in it... :(

    I'm not joining the readathon, either, but I do want to leave a comment because books and "their" playlists have been on my mind a lot lately. I left the link to my latest playlist post in your linky.

    As for my current read . . . I've just finished reading the first few chapters of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre and am getting a very 80s New Wave vibe. (LOL!!!) I'd play Alphaville's Forever Young for the last scene with Helen Burns. =)

  3. I'm participating in the Read-a-Thon, thanks for the giveaway and hosting this challenge. I'm currently reading Life,Liberty & Pursuit by Susan Kaye Quinn and it's about a long distance relationship so the song that comes to mind when I'm reading it is Thinking of You by Katy Perry here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxfxDycUVnE

  4. Sorry for the lack of info--I threw this together in the early am before going on a serious bike trek. I'm back and sore and am going to clarify!

    Yes, you need to be part of the Read-A-Thon to win. It ends this Sunday, the 29th at midnight (EST).

    But, I am welcome to reading your posts/ comments if you just want to join in the fun! (And, there will be more giveaways on this blog coming soon...very exciting!)

  5. I would have to say...for my book "Nevermore" I would choose something about opposites attract and finding that perfect person even though they might already be taken and be way out of your "league" or social group ....in your mind anyways!

    So I would think"
    Taylor Swift's "You Belong with Me".

  6. Hi! I'm doing the readathon, having a great time!
    I'm reading The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate. Let me tell you, Natalie is a piece of work. She's so mean!
    So my video is Veruca Salt's Volcano Girls: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyVSKydUxKk
    I can just imagine her walking down the hall and this music playing. Yikes!

  7. I'm reading Dracula In Love, and every time I think of the title I start thinking of Accidentally In Love by Counting Crows. Totally inappropriate song, I know. :P

  9. I'm reading Clockwork Angel, and thought I would go with these lyrics...(the song is Angel by Declan Galbraith)

    I wish I had your pair of wings
    Had them last night in my dreams
    I was chaising buterflies
    Till the sunrise broke my eyes

    Tonight the sky has glued my eyes
    Cause what they see's an angel hive
    I've got to touch that magic star
    And greet the angels in their hive

    All the sweet honey from above
    Pour it all over me sweet love
    While you're flying around my head
    Your honey kisses keep me fed

    I wish I had your pair of wings
    Just like last night in my dreams
    I was lost in paradise
    Wish I'd never opened my eyes

    But there's danger in the air
    Tryin' so hard to be unfair
    Danger's in the air
    Tryin' so hard to give us a scare
    But were not afraid

    Sometimes I wish I were an angel
    Sometimes I wish I were you
    Sometimes I wish I were an angel
    Sometimes I wish I were you

    Wish I were you
    Oh I wish I were you

    Thanks for hosting...that was fun!!

  11. I'm right in the middle of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare so I have no idea what happens but right now I'm feeling a problem coming on with Clary's fight to free her mother so I picked this song by Augustana called Angels:
