Hello lovelies, we’re halfway through June already! If you don’t already know what Book Shuffle is, it’s a monthly meme I host here on my blog. The rules are pretty simple: I click shuffle on my iTunes and whichever song first appears, I need to pair it with a book and state why. If you’d like to participate or find out more about Book Shuffle, then you can check out the meme’s official page.
So…. What randomly selected song do we have this month, huh????
Midnight Memories by One Direction
Yeah, I like some 1D songs. Leave your judgement at the door pls.
If you’ve never heard this song before (lol) then here’s the music video for it (I advise you watch it, it’s quite funny):
Now let’s get into the interesting part!
I am going to be pairing this song with…
Paper Towns by John Green
I’m going to touch upon some events which happen in this book so if you haven’t read it then I suggest you avert your eyes, there will be spoilers ahead!
Okay, okay, I know I’m stretching this one a little bit but it still makes sense in my mind. To me, this song symbolises a good night out with pals – a crazy night, but still pretty awesome. Especially one of those nights that you have limited memory of (you’ve all been there, I see you). So, because of all this, Midnight Memories reminds me a lot of that weird and wonderful night Margo and Q spent together at the start of Paper Towns. They don’t exactly have a party or anything, but they do go on a bit of an adventure and it all takes places around/just after midnight, if I’m remembering correctly. I can almost just imagine Margo and Q listening to this in the car on the way to enact their revenge, maybe even singing along. Plus, I’m pretty sure Q will never forget that night since he had been crushing on Margo since they were like seven and she just rolled into his bedroom as if that wasn’t weird as hell.
There you have it, another Book Shuffle! These posts are quite short but I love doing them, especially since I know it’s something that I’ve created and is quite unique (as far as I can tell). I hope you all have a lovely day and thank you so much for reading!
