WELCOME TO THIS POST, IT’S BEEN WAITING FOR YOU!
(I’m sorry but like not sorry at the same time because you can never be sorry for a Taylor Swift Reference)
HELLO, NICE TO MEET YOU, I’M OBSESSED WITH TAYLOR SWIFT.
It’s beyond fangirling at this point it’s screaming and jumping around for 5 minutes straight when I hear Look What You Made Me Do or when I GOT TICKETS TO HER WORLD TOUR??
I’M SEEING HER. I WILL BREATHE THE SAME OXYGEN AS TAYLOR FRICKIN SWIFT.
*inhales deeply* ok I need to calm down and turn off the caps lock and just write this post? What do you guys think? Basically long obsessive 700-page long story short, I love Taylor Swift more than you no matter how much you think you love Taylor Swift, I love her cats and I listen to her music 24 hours a day and I know every single song in the order she put them in the album. AND I have a shrine with posters and three copies of her new album. OK I’M DONE NOW.
Sooo (it goes) I’m pretty much matching some of my favorite books up with a Taylor Swift song. Like a soundtrack to each book, but not really. More like the lyrics go with the basic idea of the book. And yep, you guessed it. I know every single lyric to every single song.
Fifteen//The Fearless Album
Basically a really mellow little thing all about first love and being fifteen and high school, need I say more? Just listen to it and become obsessed please.
I matched fifteen with Rules of Rain by Leah Scheier because it’s freaky how the song matches the entire plot? Lot’s of first love and high school stuff. The lyric, “And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind” is literally pretty much the whole book. Except it was the girl who changed her mind… and then I feel like the melody is just a really nice little background song I would be down for listening to when rereading this.
Mine//The Speak Now Album
It’s a lot of background vocals and amazing bursts of the chorus! It’s about a devoted love story and the fake scenario in the song is basically goals! Taylor Swift is also literal Goals so it’s no surprise…
Starfish, by Akemi Dawn Bowman!
OK so the first element is all about damaged relationships with parental units and HOLY HECK this book covers a lot of that. Also, the little romance in it is so pure and adorbs as it is in the song. Lots of fighting and making up. A lovely pairing, I think. 🙂
All Too Well// The Red Album
THIS is the anthem that will make any Swiftie cry and compare themselves to a crumpled up piece of paper, think of all their exes and lyric scream via text message. Enough said.
They Both Die At The End// Adam Silvera
This is the only one I could think of? The two main characters obviously die in the end, and all their loved ones remember them ALL TOO WELL.
see what I did there??
Wildest Dreams//The 1989 Album
FIRST OF ALL this thing is a masterpiece? It’s all about, yep, wildest dreams. Like a dreamy vacation and sunsets and beaches, The harmony is just Taylor doing this dreamy sigh and I CAN’T GET ENOUGH GUYS.
Everything, Everything// Nicola Yoon
So the main character FINALLY gets to go outside with her true love, and they go to Hawaii and have an amazing time even though they’re not supposed to be there. They literally are on a beach and she follows her wildest dreams. the book and the song are perfect for eachother, ok?
Look What You Made Me Do//Reputation
This is the most iconic song. Who can forget:
The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now…
Oh! Cause she’s dead!
Well one of the characters literally DIES in the Pretty Little Liars book. I bet you she can’t come to the phone right now… It’s basically just a ton of drama, karma, and general mean girl vibes. Just like LWYMMD. So there.
