Since many of my more recent lists are shorter, I put off this post for awhile.

Book: The Apothecary by Maile Meloy

Music: Music Inspired By Alchemy: Faustus

Why They Go Together: The story includes a lot of alchemy, so this pairing makes a lot of sense.


Book: Perfect Ruin by Lauren Destefano

Music: Dollhouse by Melanie Martinez

Why They Go Together: Everything seems perfect in Morgan’s world, until she finds the truth.


Book: Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Song: I Just Can’t Wait to Be King from Disney’s “The Lion King”

Why They Go Together: Although Macbeth is not an adorable lion, he definitely can not wait to be king.


Book: A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare

Song: Night Faeries by Brandon Fiechter

Why They Go Together: This music will transport you to the magical forest described in Shakespeare’s famous play.


Book: The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens

Music: The Elixir of Life by Peter Gundry

Why They Go Together: This music is perfect for an epic fantasy like The Emerald Atlas with mountains, caves, villains, and mysterious books.


Book: Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

Song: Gothic Ballerina by Derek and Brandon Fiechter

Why They Go Together: This song evokes images of pretty ghosts, just like Anna in Anna Dressed in Blood.


Happy (atmospheric) reading!
