Tag 3. Books and Songs

I've had this in drafts for over a year, so I'll do the intro quick! Each book gets one song that reminds me of it. Here are the first five books I thought of!

1. Call it What You Want by Foster the People
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
"If it don't conform / To what you were born into / Then you run the other way. "

Book Review 39. Panic

Book: Panic
Author: Lauren Oliver
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Pages: 408
Published: April 10th, 2016

Synopsis: Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.
Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.
Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.
For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.
