Sara’s Requests! 

1. “Too Proud” by Broods 

Here’s the link: Too Proud by Broods

 

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer 

artemis fowl book cover

So many times that I’ve been
Too proud to let it out
(When I feel it’s too much to handle)
So many times that I’ve been
Too proud to let it out
And then I start to get nervous
What if I never resurface?
No one can hear me down here
The pressure gets worse
The further I fall
The dimmer the light
The lower I go
And I’m getting cold

Artemis Fowl is a criminal mastermind, child prodigy and perhaps, the cleverest person on this planet. But, he is a very lonely person and suppresses emotion. This is the first book that came to my mind when I heard this.


2. “Strangers” by Sigrid

Here’s the link: Strangers by Sigrid

 

Ascend by Amanda Hocking

Like strangers
Perfect pretenders
We’re falling head over heels
For something that ain’t real
It could never be us, eh
Just you and I
Strangers
Perfect pretenders
We’re falling head over heels
For something that ain’t real
It could never be us, eh
Just you and I

In the book Ascend by Amanda Hocking, we see our main character, Wendy falling for the Vittra Loki and vice versa. They are complete strangers and still, they know that they can trust and believe each other. This song is so perfect for this book that I can’t help thinking that it was written for it!


3. “Vindicated” by Dashboard Confessional

Here’s the link: Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional

Artemis Fowl (yet again…)

artemis fowl book cover

Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right, I swear I’m right
Swear I knew it all along and
I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

Okay. I feel like I am horrible at answering questions like these. But this song reminds me of the Artemis Fowl series yet again!! Artemis is so selfish and self-centered during the first stage of the series, but as the series develops, Artemis does too. He begins to be more empathetic and considerate and the good qualities of his personality bloom, especially with the help of Holly, the fairy elf. So, yeah I’m going with this answer!

 

I want you to know, my dear friend that without you I would not be the person I am today. I was a broken  boy and you fixed me. Thank you.

-Artemis Fowl to Holly Short (The Last Guardian)


My Requests!

1) Head Above Water by Avril Lavigne 

Here’s the link: Head Above Water by Avril Lavigne

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

thg.jpg

Yeah, my life is what I’m fighting for
Can’t part the sea, can’t reach the shore
And my voice becomes the driving force
I won’t let this pull me overboard
God, keep my head above water
Don’t let me drown, it gets harder
I’ll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don’t let me drown, drown, drown
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown
This song screams The Hunger Games to me! The way Katniss volunteers for Prim and the way she fights to make everything okay, the torture and pain she goes through, and yet she doesn’t lose hope and keeps on fighting!

 


2) Two Young Hearts by Sabrina Carpenter

Here’s the link: Two Young Hearts by Sabrina Carpenter

 

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent.jpg

It’s a narrow line I’m walkin’
Better watch myself
‘Cause we got everybody talkin’
And I can hear ’em say
Maybe in another lifetime
Maybe when you’re older
What they don’t know is
I’ve already made up my mind (My mind)
And yes I know what love is

I think of so many characters from different books when I hear this song!! But I am going to pick Divergent. Four and Tris don’t get to be together in the end. (Tris dies!!!) I picked Divergent as it is one of the books that I love and haven’t spoken about on my blog much. Also, I feel that this song signifies what Four and Tris had.


3) Seamless by Sabrina Carpenter

Here’s the link: Seamless by Sabrina Carpenter

 

Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling 

philosopher's stone book cover

Good morning, you’re leaving
I’ll see you in the evening
My best friend till the end
My better half no pretend
Our language is sacred
No people try to solve it
New adventures on the way
You and me together
Take on the world forever
I know all your secrets
And I promise you I’m gonna keep them
I’ll be there when you are feeling clueless
You and me, oh yeah we’re seamless
Woah oh, yeah, woah oh
Did you think I would leave this book out?!?
There is no better bookish friendship than The Golden Trio. They’re Friendship Goals!

  1. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

    1. Hey Maia! I just remembered that I hadn’t tagged anyone for this post! I just tagged 5 people including you and thought that I ought to let you know as you had seen the post already and it might be confusing!
