Welcome to Theme Song Saturdays, a new weekly meme, hosted by yours truly, in which we share our love of music and books! Since I love books and music, this meme is for fun to try to incorporate those two loves! Whenever I read a book, a certain song -- kind of like a soundtrack or theme song -- plays through my head.
Want to know how to play? Head over to this post to read the rules and get the code.
This week is another for50 Shades of Grey. Granted, I already finished the book, but I need to post this song
Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy rips my heart out every time I hear it. Throughout the course of this book, this song kept being brought back to mind. Ana struggles with Christian's strange tastes, her desire for "more," and the realization that she truly loves him. However, even though he is completely "beguiled" by her and shares parts of him that are shrouded in shadows, he seems unable to fully love her. To me, mos of it is due to his feelings of being unlovable and his hideous past. The ending of this book is heart rending, and this song fits perfectly.
That's my sad pick this week. I hope yours are far more uplifting! Leave the link to your post in the comments!
