#daemoninvasion MUSIC MONDAY # 1 - WAX LYRICAL - GIVEAWAY - BOOK CHOICE - OBSIDIAN by JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT - WHAT SONG DO YOU THINK DESCRIBES A CHARACTER OR THE BOOK? GIVEAWAY!!




MUSIC  MONDAY  WAX  LYRICAL
#1 OBSIDIAN GIVEAWAY


For quite a while now I have been having fun with music in my interviews with authors. Here are some of them :


Aussie Tour Interview with Becca Fitzpatrick

Die For Me by Amy Plum - Character Interview with Jules

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Interview with Kelley York - Hushed

Winter's Light by M.J. Hearle

Musical Interview with Julie Kagawa

Interview with Jus Accardo

Character Interview - Potter from Kiera Hudson series by Tim O'Rourke

Lyrics mean a lot to me. Asking authors musical questions has proven very popular in my interviews with authors/characters. It can infact stump some authors. Julie Kagawa was stumped and we had a competition to unstump her. That was fun!

I have been tossing about ideas and talking about having a feature on the blog, and I thought to make it easy I would  choose the book and let the readers decide what aspect/relationship they think a song choice best describes it. I am so grateful to the lovely youtubers who make the lyric videos. I get very excited when I find a vid that has lyrics for my interviews.  I love finding out what an author would choose.


Choose a song you think best represents OBSIDIAN in whatever way you think. See some of my interviews and you will get the gist of what I have done when asking authors. I choose single characters, what music would describe them, or the two main characters, the book as a whole, just have fun with it.


I will be holding giveaways most weeks, some bigger than others, it depends what I have here. Could be a book, swag, signed item........

As I am on the #daemoninvasion street team, #TeamKittyKat , I thought my first Wax Lyrical would be Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I am in Daemon mode.

1 x Obsidian Paperback - Prize






I love having the music on my postings and sometimes I just listen to my author interview song choices, they have chosen. Great way of getting more in touch with the book and also for those who haven't read the book, it gives them a vibe of what the book is about, or the character.


Either way , music and lyrics are just my way of  'feeling' a book or getting to know a character. Also I can sing along at the top of my lungs...no I can't sing...but who cares:)


GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!


This is my song choice:
Invaders Must Die by The Prodigy
The Good guys are killing the baddies and the baddies want to kill the good guys.



Michelle




ET by Katy Perry






FIREWORK by KATY PERRY




I LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW
by NEVER SHOUT NEVER







PERFECT CHEMISTRY by TIFFANY ALVORD





SATELLITE by THE WANTED







 INVASION by EISLEY

  3. I think the song I love You More Than You Will Ever Know by Nevershoutnever describes really well Daemon feeling for Katy especially at the end of the book. Katy doesn't believe Daemon really loves her and I think this song shows really well Daemons feelings.

  4. Thank you for this post! I love reading and I love music, and I'm doing usually the two together :D I think the chemistry between the characters, Katy and Daemon represents this song great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRblghusQzU

    "When I'm with you, I'm bout to explode
    Cause the way I feel is more than my heart can hold
    I smile, and giggle round you, without even knowing
    I try to hide it but, my love keeps showing"

    "Your eyes, do more than hypnotize me
    They make me feel of your sincerity"

  5. Thanks for the giveaway!!! The songs that came to my mind were E.T. by Katy Perry and Satellite by The Wanted.

    So put your hands up to the sky, yeah, put 'em up
    Follow me, you wanna fly
    I'll show you love
    Put your hands up to the sky, inside of mine
    When we touch, we get so high

    It reminds me how Katy feels when she and Damon are together.

    I haven't read the book yet but based from the description, generally Eisley's Invasion comes to my mind when I think of Obsidian.
