Challenge #5 created by Emma
Bookish Playlist 
What's a song that always reminds you of a certain book? Is it something the characters listen to? Do the lyrics remind you of the plot? Make a list of at least three songs and match them each with a book. Participants could explain their reasoning in greater depth in the form of a blog or twitter thread, show pictures of the books and caption with the song titles in an Instagram post, or even make a playlist on Spotify or YouTube and share it.

Twilight (Twilight, #1)
Song: Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron & Wine
Book: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Reason: It's the song that plays during the prom scene / last scene of the movie and, for whatever reason, it's always stuck with me. I absolutely love the sound of the song and it spurred a love of more folksy sounding music for me. Every time I hear it, I automatically think of Twilight.

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
Song: Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding
Book: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
Reason: This was one of the biggest songs from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie soundtrack and I absolutely fell in love with it the first time I heard it. I really enjoyed the emotion in the song and the sound of Goulding's voice. Beautiful song.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
Song: Mysterious Ticking Noise by Potter Puppet Pals
Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by JK Rowling
Reason: I mean... it's Potter Puppet Pals. Any HP fan from the earlier 2000's probably knows the significance of this song.
