Something that is becoming increasingly popular among authors and among the bookish community is adding a playlist to a novel. A lot of people find themselves listening to music while reading as a way of transporting themselves into the story. I have never been able to do this, for me I am either full on reading or I am full on jamming out, there is no multi-tasking of those two things.


I have chosen to remix the novel A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray to get ready for the release (much anticipated by moi) of A Million Worlds With You, which comes out on November 1st!
