Over the past 12 months or so I have really enjoyed some of the Books that I have read where the Author has put out a list of Music that goes along with the Story….I find this a great concept as it can intensify the feeling of a scene in the Book! I have also got to discover some great Music as well that I had not heard of before!

Twilight

# Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer 🎶 Music from these Books are:

“I can’t write without music. This, combined with the fact that writing Twilight was a very visual, movie-like experience, prompted me to collect my favorite Twilightsongs into a sort of soundtrack for the book. This list is not chiseled in granite; it transforms now and again. But, for the moment, here’s the music I hear in my head while reading the book.”  ~ by Author, Stephanie Meyer
