Hello, Snowflakes! Today’s post is a list of my book recommendations based on Panic! At The Disco songs! I also included the link to the song IN the title of each song! Be sure to click on them and give them a listen!
Starting from their first album and going to their latest:
A FEVER YOU CAN’T SWEAT OUT
BUILD GOD THEN WE’LL TALK – a book that tells a good story
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia! This was such a cute story and you didn’t have many (if any) cliches. The story keeps rolling and you have to follow it down the stairs. (What is your metaphor, Charlie? I’m not sure) The story was lighthearted and I read it in about a day and half. Excellent writing, excellent story. I gave this book 4.5/5 stars
LONDON BECKONED SONGS ABOUT MONEY WRITTEN BY MACHINES – a book that you spent the most money on
This one has to go to Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones (and I didn’t even purchase it!) It came to a total of almost $19 at a bookstore. Yeah. This is why I get my books online. I do, however, love the story (despite the cost) because it is a loosely based retelling of one of my favorite movies ever: Labyrinth! Now, no, this book doesn’t have the same campy/cheesy goodness that the movie has (nor David Bowie as The Goblin King with amazing dance numbers) but this book has it’s own greatness. Like I said, this is loosely based. There are A LOT of changes, for example: The Goblin King in the book takes Liesel’s sister to be his wife, whereas in the movie The Goblin King takes her brother to be a goblin (because of her wish for him to go away) I will say it again, though, that it does have it’s own greatness to the story. I gave this book 4/5 stars.
NINE IN THE AFTERNOON – a book where you can’t really tell what the heck is going on
FOR THIS I HAVE TO GO WITH A MONSTER CALLS BY PATRICK NESS BECAUSE FOR HALF OF THE BOOK I WAS LIKE “WHAT IS GOING ON??” I was a great story, but I feel like maybe my eyes skipped a few parts and so it made me like ??? what. is. happening! I gave this story 4/5 stars.
VICES AND VIRTUES
THE CALENDER – a book that makes you miss summer
For that, I have to go with Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman. Honestly, that book makes me wish I could have a summer romance in Italy and go explore and just be in love and ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. I gave this book all the stars!
TOO WEIRD TO LIVE, TOO RARE TO DIE
COLLAR FULL – A character that’s head over heels in love
For this, I decided to go with Simon Spier from Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. He was HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE with Blue. In case you didn’t know, these two (Simon and Blue) met via a social network and the book is Simon trying to find himself and also the identity of this mysterious Blue. Some of you may know this story under a different name: Love, Simon.
FAR TOO YOUNG TO DIE – A character that died “far too young” in the story
For this one, I will have to go with The Fault in Our Stars by John Green because I am STILL NOT OVER this! The bluntness that John Green had when he said that Augustus died is probably (no, MOST DEFINITELY) the biggest reason that his death was such a stab to the heart.
NICOTINE – A character you hate
For this one (I love the story, hate the character) I went with a popular fantasy and that is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I reeeeeally dislike Feyre. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love her relationship with Rhysand, and I relatively like the books. But, for some reason, there is something about her I just don’t like. Wanna see if I’m crazy? Read the series to find out! I gave the series (as a whole) 4.5/5 stars.
MISS JACKSON – A character you love to hate
Hardin in the After series. The After series is more New-Adult, but it’s like a teen movie if I’m being 100% honest. Their relationship is like Ross and Rachel but a little more destructive. Which is basically saying it’s like those bad boy books you read on Wattpad. Well, not me…
I will be super honest, for some reason, I am addicted to these trashy romance novels. Who knows why??
DEATH OF A BACHELOR
THE DEATH OF A BACHELOR – a book with a married character
For this I went with Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren. This book is super funny and it deals with heavy romance (beware!) One night a girl and her friends were partying and got drunk. On the way back to her room, one character mets a French man and they hit it off…so well that they get hitched. The rest of the story is basically figuring out what to do from there. The way I described it seems mediocre, but it’s great, I swear! I gave it 4/5 stars!
PRAY FOR THE WICKED
ROARING 20’s – a book that reminds you to go and live life
For this one, I went with It’s Kind of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini! This book had such a sobering message that you’ll have good days and you’ll have bad days, but the worst days are the days you aren’t LIVING.
So those are all of my recommendations! You should comment below some Panic! At The Disco songs that remind you of a specific book!
