Question Thursday: Do you like book playlists?

Do you enjoy book playlists?  I love book playlists and find that the songs often add another layer of fun to my reading experience.  Much like with movie soundtracks, I will forever associate certain songs with particular characters and books, and I love that!  If you enjoy book playlists too, which ones are your favorites?  I would love to check them out!  Are there any songs you will always connect with certain books or characters?

I've gathered some of my favorite book playlist songs into the player below, and here are a few links to authors sharing (or commenting on) their book playlists: Cassandra Clare's City of Glass playlist, Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver playlist, Julie Kagawa's The Iron King playlist, Shelena Shorts' The Pace playlist, and Kim Harrison's The Hollows playlist.

Book play lists are ok I guess. I make them for when I write because they inspire me. But in general the only reason I listen to them is to hear new music. When I read the actual book I like to read it in silence or if there is something playing I just tune it out.

I don't generally listen to book playlists while I read either, but I like to listen to them before (and after) reading a book. Sometimes they help me get a feel for a book before actually opening it. For example, "Long, Long Time Ago" (the last song on the playlist above) is the first song on Julie Kagawa's The Iron King playlist & it sets an eerie tone. Other times, certain songs seem so fitting to a particular set of characters that listening to the playlist after reading the book makes me recall those characters more vividly.

I like listening to book play lists, especially if it's a play list more about the characters - what they like, it helps me to understand them since I love music so much - to see what they like and where there head's are - so...I love them! :)

I liked the Beautiful Creatures playlists in that way, Jenn. It was fun to think about what Ethan would have on his playlist and what kind of music Link would like. It definitely adds another dimension to their characters. :)
