blind date a book 2016

As Valentine’s Day is getting closer and closer, I’ve picked out a few books you can date if you don’t already have a human one. If you do, no worries, I’m sure neither partner will mind. 😉 Today matchmaking is hinging on song lyrics! Please don’t judge my taste in music. I don’t know why, but I was weirdly in a pop mood when I first came up with this post. To find out your match, once you find a song and description you like, simiply click on the “View spoiler” button like this one: View Spoiler ».

Before we start, I am well aware that I can’t actually set you guys up with a blind date since I can’t actually force you to go on one. And as much as I would like to help people pick up new books without being able to judge it by its cover, I can’t. So please, if you’re interested, try to give these books a try without paying too much attention to their covers and synopsises. 🙂

Let’s get started, shall we?

Fire Starter Demi Lovato

“Fire Starter” by Demi Lovato

“I’m a fire starter, I’m a sweet disaster
I melt hearts like fire

I might look all innocent
But the embers are burning inside of me
And I’m ready to take that step, can’t you see, can’t you see?”

Girl gone wild… sort of…-ish. Perfect if you love art, a bit of mystery, and are looking for a book writen in an unique way. Standalone. Realistic fiction.

Are we in the clear yet, good.”

People Like Us Kelly Clarkson

“People Like Us” – Kelly Clarkson

“People like us, we’ve gotta stick together
Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever

We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us”

“Perfect” – One Direction

And if you like having secret little rendezvous

Then baby, I’m perfect

Love “bad boy” and good girl relationships or romances that seemed destinated to fail? This is the book for you. Warning… this book does kind of blur the line between YA and NA so if you haven’t started high school yet, this might not be the book for you. Standalone. Contempoary YA/NA.

  1. This is such a clever idea for a post! I really enjoyed reading through the lyrics. I had to go with One Direction (love them), so I’m definitely adding Whatever Life Throws at You onto my TBR!
