Novels 'n' Notes [City of Bones]

Novels 'n' Notes is a weekly event hosted by Mag at Geek Chic ^-^

Music plays such a huge role in everyone's lives (unless you happen to hate music. Then...I don't really know what to say to you *). It's present everywhere--even in books! Books! Ah, books. Have you ever wished that music would start playing when you read a scene in a book? Kind of similar to having your own theme song in real life. Except in book-form.

It'd be pretty epic.

Anyway, the song below is for the book City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. The Adventure - by Angels & Airwaves. **

I wanna have the same last dream again
The one where I wake up and I'm alive
So...kind of like Clary's total surreal experience with the Shadowhunters.

Hey, oh here I am
Here we go
Life's waiting to begin
Marks Clary's "adventure" in the series...the changes she will have to face. You know, all of that good stuff.

Any type of love it will be showed
Like every single tree reach for the sky
If you're gonna fall
I'll let you know
That I will pick you up
Like you for I
Clary and Jace. Self-explanatory.

I want to know: What is your theme song? What are some songs you can connect to books?

** Also featured in my Depravity Playlist ^-^


  1. I think that my theme song/playlist would be written by Christina Grimmie. I'm ALWAYS playing her songs when I'm having a "moment".
    I also had a moment at guard practice last school year. They all started talking and walked out of the room, and as they were walking out, my friends phone started playing her text song. Their voices faded and the door closed just as the song ended.
    It was pretty weird. xD

    1. Christina Grimmie! I've only just heard of her, but I listened to her new single and she's great!

      That's like a perfect moment right there. Like in a movie or something :]

      The marching band at one of the school's in my city has their own warm up song. Our marching band doesn't though. But I would be way more motivated if we did! What say you? :D

  2. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! This song SCREAMS City of Bones! Great pick!

    1. Oh and also

      "(unless you happen to hate music. Then...I don't really know what to say to you *)"

      lol I know exactly what you mean ;)

    2. Thanks! I actually first heard this song while watching a City of Bones mock trailer and thought the same thing. This song actually reminds me more of Jace than Clary ^-^

      I have yet to meet a person who feels that way about music, and I really hope I won't have to :3


...share your musings too :]
