Top Ten Books I'd Give a Theme Song To
 (Bear in mind, my music might be a bit more obscure than others, so I'll try to include links to them on Youtube.)

1. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - "My Heart Belongs to You" by Hayley Westenra
Yes, I am SUCH a romantic when it comes to Sam and Grace, and no song could be more romantic in my eyes for them than this Hayley Westenra song. 

2. Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey - "You're Still You" by Josh Groban
With the idea of reincarnation, I would imagine that despite the various years and lifetimes together, Alden would think this about Lenzi.

3. Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs - "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar
This could apply to Phoebe and Griffin or to Phoebe being the new kid in school and how she'll take whatever the other kids have to dish out.

4. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson - "I Can't Do This" by Plumb
With all that Melinda went through, I'm sure she was thinking this throughout the novel.

5. Dust City by Robert Paul Weston - "Monster" by Skillet
Considering Henry was always afraid that he would end up like his dad, I think this song would speak highly of how he felt throughout the book.

6. Beastly by Alex Flinn - "When You Say You Love Me" by Josh Groban
I would apply this song to almost all variations of Beauty and the Beast because he is waiting for her to say those words.

7. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - "Seven Seas" by Sarah Brightman
The sea plays such a big role in the behavior of the water horses as well as Puck and Sean.

8. Watership Down by Richard Adams - "Bright Eyes" by Hayley Westenra
I know Simon and Garfunkel sang the original, but I just adore Hayley Westenra's version much more. I couldn't pick a better song for this novel.

9. Dear Bully by various authors - "Perfect" by Pink

10. The Nymph King by Gena Showalter - "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar
With as much as Shay and Valerian get into verbal spars, I'm sure this song applies to them.
