country music books -- (topics include: family, rural & small-town living, loss, redemption, love, etc.)
Second Chance Summer, by Morgan Matson
Songs/Artists I think of: Carrie Underwood comes to mind. So does, on a lighter note, Little Big Town's new song "Pontoon."
Tiger Lily, by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Songs/Artists I think of: Miranda Lambert, 100%. Tiger Lily has the same feisty, angry-girl spirit and there's the same longing/desperation in this book as are in many of her songs.
Bittersweet, by Sarah Ockler
Songs/Artists I think of: Taylor Swift (her earlier stuff), especially songs like "Change."
pop music books -- (topics include: love, infatuation, sex, fame, and occasional nonsense lyrics)
The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life, by Tara Altebrando
Songs/Artists I think of: Katy Perry's "TGIF" and Ke$ha. Also Hope Partlow. I could probably think of a lot for this one.
Unbreak My Heart, by Melissa Walker
Songs/Artists I think of: Taylor Swift, again. Can't help it.
Reunited, by Hilary Weisman Graham
Songs/Artists I think of: Vampire Weekend and The Veronicas.
rock music books -- (topics include: i don't know - love, anger, and everything in-between?)
Adios, Nirvana, by Conrad Wesselhoeft
Songs/Artists I think of: U2, Tony Lucca.
The List, by Siobhan Vivian
Songs/Artists I think of: Pink, Kelly Clarkson.
Graffiti Moon, by Cath Crowley
Songs/Artists I think of: Boys Like Girls, Coldplay, possibly Paramore.
I know there are more genres -- indie, which is sort of hard to define (at least for me) and alternative (ditto) and a slew of subgenres of pop. And while I'd love to dive more into those and get really specific, I'm also a bit lazy and tired. So what do you think -- do you ever think of books in terms of musical genres or is that just me?
