Heartstopper Reading Playlist

Salutation Chapterlings! I feel like it’s been a hot minute since I’ve done another playlist! If you remember, the last playlist I posted about was about some of the ambiance I listen to while I’m trying to really knock out some reading. On there I had mostly asmr themed sounds except for one or two videos. I also mentioned my friend, Emily who has her own bookish inspired playlists! I can’t recommend her playlists enough! When I do my reviewing playlist, you know I’m going to be mentioning her again and because I love her to pieces! ❀️ So that’s a little recap of the last playlist I introduced to all of you. It was a pretty decent sized list! Well, this playlist might be just as long, if not longer! You can also listen to the Spotify playlist right HERE!

I don’t think I’ve ever done this kind of playlist before. We’ve all listened to love songs and we’ve all probably burned a CD or two of love songs for the person we were romancing in our younger years, but now I’m compiling a list of lovey dovey romance songs for the one and only Heartstopper by Alice Oseman! I just recently finished my review of Heartstopper Vol. 2 and upon finishing it I instantly wanted to make a playlist for both volumes. So there’s a good chance this is going to be a really long list. You might want to strap in for a wild ride of sappy love songs and interesting recommendations as I dive into this playlist. Also, if you haven’t read Heartstopper yet, then I highly recommend checking both volumes out! You can also read it for free HERE!

🌻 War of Hearts by Ruelle

🌻 Somewhere Only We Know by Keane

Okay, friends! That’s ever song that I wanted to put on this playlist! If you made it this far then I hope you enjoyed each and every song on this playlist! It wasn’t easy narrowing down the many, many love songs and emotional songs that fit these two volumes of Heartstopper. As you can tell, I wasn’t kidding when I said this list might be a long one. But please, if you have any songs you want to add to this list or songs you feel fit these two volumes perfectly then let me know in the comments! Until next time Chapterlings; may September be a month filled with reading and love, I love you! ❀️



There Will Come A Darkness Reading Playlist

Ah, it’s time for another playlist! Yes, another one I say! I have been debating this playlist for a long time now, but I finally decided to take the dive and make it. And oh boy, this was not an easy playlist to make. I found so many songs that worked for this book that I really had to cut this playlist down. Originally, this list had twenty songs on it. That’s right, twenty songs… on this list. However, I managed to cut it down to the ones that I have. It was painful, but we’re here and I hope you all enjoy them! You will also be able to find this playlist right HERE!

So why am I posting this playlist so late? Well, I honestly couldn’t decide if I really wanted to commit to that playlist. However, one of my friends had to remind me that I made a playlist for two other books that made my top 2019 books. In my review of There Will Come A Darkness, I recommend that lovers of Shadow of the Fox and Wicked Saints should pick this book up. I still stand with my recommendation! And to be honest, I loved this book so much that I couldn’t resist the call to make a playlist for it anymore. With the release date for this book right around the corner (September 3rd, 2019), it was time to make a playlist. Now, without any further delay, I hope all of you enjoy this playlist I have put together for this marvelous book!

🌻 Game of Survival by Ruelle

🌻 Blame by Bastille

🌻 Legends Are Made by Sam Tinnesz

🌻 Guardian Angels by Abel Korzeniowski

🌻 Start A War by Klergy feat. Valerie Broussard

🌻 Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Lorde

🌻 Only Love by Jordan Smith

🌻 Anger by Sleeping At Last

🌻 Walk Through the Fire by ZAYDE WOLF feat. Ruelle

🌻 The Downfall by Ruelle

🌻 Ashes by Celine Dion

🌻 Meet Me on the Battlefield by SVRCINA

Okay, Chapterlings! I hope you enjoyed this playlist as much as I did putting it all together! Believe me, this wasn’t easy and it was really hard to narrow it down to these twelve songs. There are so many amazing songs that fit this book and it’s contents perfectly, but these songs just won my love a little bit more. Please, let me know in the comments what you think and whether or not you’ll be getting a copy of this book on release day! And until next time; may your TBR be full, I love you! ❀️



My Go-To Reading Playlist

Salutations Chapterlings! I hope you all are having a fabulous time reading! I can’t wait to see everyone’s wrap ups and hauls! But I’m even more excited to see more playlists! My fellow Bookstababe, Emily has been crushing the book playlists recently. She basically inspired me to make this playlists! While we all love and adore playlists for specific books, sometimes we want to take a look at what someone listens to while they read. I know for myself, I’m always curious if someone is listening to jazzy beats or if they’re kickin’ it old school! There’s so many wonderful and amazing songs, sounds, and independent artists to choose and listen to! So I figured I would share a little insight to my go-to reading playlist.

My playlist probably isn’t like most playlists. My list is a combination of sounds, noises, and instrumental music…or in a sense, ambient music. If you’re anything like me, then you may be an intense reader. If there’s a really high action scene in a book you may get really anxious or get an adrenaline rush, or perhaps you come to a really emotional scene and even though you’re three chapters past that, you’re stilling crying and thinking about that one scene. Yeah, that’s the type of reader I am. So due to those heighten feelings, I need specific noises and sounds to keep me balanced out. Hence, my go-to playlist. Filled with asmr, ambient noises, instrumental goodness, and soothing sounds. Now, here’s my list of some of my most used and overplayed videos from my playlist!

Dragon Age: Inquisition Soundtrack
Rainy Day at the Coffee Shop
Rainy Piano Studio Ghibli Songs
Slytherin Dormitory ASMR
Enchanted Lands
Chronicles of Narnia Ambient Music
Avatar: Pandora at Night Ambience
Rainy Night at Hogwarts
Relaxing Jazz
Night Rain ASMR
Thunderstorm ASMR
Deep Sea

Okay, friends! Those are some of my most played videos on my go-to playlist. I hope you all enjoyed this list as much as I did sharing it with all of you! I hope that you’ll give some of these a try and test them out for yourselves! I would love to know if you have a go-to reading playlist that you listen to while reading! Let me know in the comments below some of your favorite sounds or songs! And as always, I hope you’re having a wonderful time reading, I love you! ❀️



Shadow of the Fox Reading Playlist


You can find my review for this book on my GoodReads and on my blog!

β€œThe future,” she said, her voice echoing over the crowd, β€œis an ever changing stream. Every choice, every decision we make, sends it down a different path.” 

I think the biggest thing for me with this book, it feels like a slice of familiarity. Reading about this group of people traveling together remind me so much of some of my favorite anime shows like Inuyasha or Samurai Champloo or even Naruto. I always love seeing various group dynamics come together and how their personalities mesh with each other. Julie Kagawa has done a marvelous job with this. The way Yumeko and Tatsumi are together is so unique and works so well with one another, that I’m constantly craving more. Even as characters were added to their group, the way the different personalities bounced off one another was so good. I love it and I can’t wait to see how the various personalities continue to bloom and grow in Julie’s future books in this series!

I loved this book so much and I’m still thinking about every little piece from this book! The characters are some of the most captivating that will lure you into investing every emotions you have into them. But having this reading experience wouldn’t be complete without the amazing music I was listening to while reading this ya fantasy! So without any further delay, let me share some of the best music to listen to while reading this book!

Memoirs of a Geisha Full Soundtrack
Relaxing Japanese Music
Zen Garden
MISIA – 白い季節
Japanese Battle Music

Okay, friends! That’s my whole playlists for Shadow of the Fox! I hope you give some of these amazing tunes a chance and you enjoy them as much as I do. With the sequel right on the horizon, I might just have to make a playlist for that one as well. As always, I hope your month is full of amazing reads and if you haven’t decided on what to read next, I hope you consider giving Shadow of the Fox a chance! Until next time, I love you and may your tbr be full! ❀️



Wicked Saints Reading Playlist


Arc provided by Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review.

Find my review for this book on my GoodReads and on my blog!

β€œDazzle the monsters, Nadya. You’ve already charmed the worst of the lot; the rest should be easy.” 

We all have our methods of reading. Some of us like to read in a tree, some of us listen to asmr while reading, and some of us just have random quirks that help make our reading experiences even better. I have many methods, like everyone else, of pushing myself to read or to make my reading experience a little better. One thing I recently realized was I had an amazing playlist that engaged me and made my reading experience with Wicked Saints so much better than it already was. I thought that I would share some of those songs!

I have recommended this book to so many people since this release. Along with recommending this book to anyone who has shown the slightest interest, I have recommended a short playlist along with it. I have gone through my Wicked Saints playlist and chosen six songs that would be perfect to listen to while reading this book!

Number One: Recuse Myself by Demon Hunter
Number Two: Sadness (Full Version) by Enigma
Number Three: Escapade by Skrux
Number Four: Diamond Heart by Alan Walker
Number Five: Monster by Imagine Dragons
Number Six: Everybody Wants to Rule the World (Extended) by Lorde

Those are my top six picks for my playlist! It was such a hard choice because there were so many great songs to choose from. I loved putting this playlist together and you’re bound to see more playlists in the future. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do and I can’t wait to put the next playlist together for you all!
