Bout of Books Updates & Book Playlist Challenge (Updated)

DAY 1 CHALLENGE: A Playlist for A Book–Maybe One Day

We were asked to create a playlist for one of the books we’re reading for Bout of Books. I chose Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor, focusing on two best friends, and the way they navigate life as one of the girls struggles with cancer.

Here’s part of the GoodReads summary:

“In this incandescent page-turner, which follows in the tradition of The Fault in Our Stars, Melissa Kantor artfully explores the idea that the worst thing to happen to you might not be something that is actually happening to you. Raw, irreverent, and honest, Zoe’s unforgettable voice and story will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.”

The girls’ passion for ballet, their history of attending class in NYC, and the strong theme of friendship in the book (so far) all inspired the following playlist:

Dance, Dance, Dance—The Beach Boys

New York, New York—Frank Sinatra & Tony Bennett

Yellow—Coldplay

The Nutcracker, Op. 71, Act II, Divertissement: Coffee (Arab Dance)—Andre Previn & London Symphony Orchestra, Tchaikovsky

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough—Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

I’ll Be There—Jackson 5

One thought on “Bout of Books Updates & Book Playlist Challenge (Updated)

  1. Just as a note of interest, Leila Sales made up a playlist for THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE and gave out a CD she made at her book signings 🙂 Doesn’t she include the playlist in the book? It’s not near me so I didn’t look.
