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 the Theme Song Saturday introduction post to read the rules and get the code.
Two songs this week:
Hand That Feeds by Nine Inch Nails & Night Bus by Lucy Rose represent different aspects of this book. For me, they are both poignant. The first song makes me thing of Kira's desire to buck the system, her overwhelming convictions to find a cure, and the fact that she doesn't care about the consequences. In some ways, it is also a challenge to Marcus and the others in the society. The song by Lucy Rose is kind of the way I see Marcus looking at Kira. He loves her, but, at some level, I think she confuses him. She was the girl he thought he knew, loved, and wanted to be with the rest of his life; however, her desire to act outside of the Senate shakes everything he thought he knew.
