Anyone that knows me know how much I love music. It’s probably the only thing that could rival my love of books. I’m not sure what I would do if I had to go a day without hearing one of my favorite tunes.
When I’m with my kids I listen to upbeat songs since they love to dance. When I readI tend to go with darker more dramatic music. Alternative music is what helps put me in the mood to delve into the worlds my books create. Some of my go-to bands are Muse, Band of Skulls, Black Keys, Lykke Li, Naked and Famous, and Joy Formidable. There are many others; those are just the ones I can name off the top of my head.
I love when authors post their playlists for the books they’ve written. I like seeing what the author was listening to that helped them shape the scenes and moods of the characters. I think it adds so much more to the stories they are telling
So my question is: Do you listen to music while reading? If so, what’s on your playlist?
