« Lo sai qual è il tuo problema?
Non sopporti l'idea che qualcuno possa andarsene. Sei così dannatamente terrorizzato dall'idea che qualcuno possa mollarti, che tutta la tua cazzo di vita è costruita intorno al non rimanere solo. Beh, non funziona, perché così non sei un buon amico o un buon fidanzato, così stai solo pensando forse-non-gli-piaccio-forse-non-gli-piaccio, e sai cosa?
Quando fai così, non piaci a nessuno. »
I love how the main criticism of John Green books is that he makes his teens too intelligent. Like, I want you to absorb that. He refuses to condescend to his target audience and that’s a. Negative? Thing????

Certain songs make you feel a type of way and so do John Green books. As I have said before, I love it when you read a book and there are songs that fit the ‘mood’ of the book. When I read John Green books, I listen to mostly indie, alternative music. Because I feel that that is the type of music that fits his books the most. I also feel like John’s characters would be the types of people to listen to indie/alternative music.
Here, I’ve compiled a playlist of 10 songs each for four of John Green’s novels. I’ll list down the title of the book along with the ‘theme’ of music that I think most suits the story/mood of the book.
(I know that TFIOS and Paper Towns have their own movie soundtracks, and both are really good soundtracks. But I enjoy making my own playlists)
1. The Fault in our Stars //Heartbreaking Love Story// These are songs that give the listener a ‘heartbreaking love story’ feel. The kind of songs that ‘pluck on your heartstrings’ - Bloom by The Paper Kites - One Day by Kodaline - Firefly by Ed Sheeran - Paint by The Paper Kites - King and Lionheart by Of Monsters and Men - Pretend We’re in a Movie by New Politics - Stardust by New Politics - Halcyon by The Paper Kites - Vanilla Twilight by Owl City - What You Wanted - One Republic
2. An Abundance of Katherines //Carpe Diem// These are the songs that give you the desire to jump up and carry out the latin phrase ‘Carpe Diem’ which means ‘Seize the day’ or ‘make the most of each moment’ - Trojans by Atlas Genius - Heroes by David Bowie - Simple Song by The Shins - Whatever by Oasis - Smile by Mikky Ekko - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel - The World is Watching by Two Door Cinema Club - A Comet Appears by The Shins - Something Good by alt-J - Save Rock and Roll by Fall Out Boy
3. Paper Towns //Roadtrip// Basically, songs you’d listen to while on a roadtrip with your friends. These songs also give you that ‘In a car with the windows rolled down and the wind on my face’ kind of feel. - Chocolate by The 1975 - Different Colors by Walk the Moon - Beast of Burden by The Rolling Stones - Take a Walk by Passion Pit - Houdini by Foster the People - It’s Time by Imagine Dragons - Tear in my Heart by Twenty One Pilots - The Kids Aren’t Alright by Fall Out Boy - Another Night on Mars by The Maine - Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queen) by New Politics
4. Looking For Alaska //Teen Angst// Songs about raging demons, self-hatred, regret, bitterness, depression, things Alaska Young might listen to. - Kitchen Sink by Twenty One Pilots - The Mess by The Naked and Famous - Youth by Daughter - Me by The 1975 - Never Let Me Go by Florence and the Machine - Carmen by Lana Del Ray - Asleep by the Smiths - Conversation 16 by The National - Under the Gun by The Killers - Walk Away by Dia Frampton
So that was another one of my ‘Book Playlists’ I hope you guys liked it. And I will be posting a hell of a lot more of these because I love making them. The two things I love combined, music and books.

That had been one hell of a cheap shot. You felt the bullet tear through your stomach, screamed from the pain and went down. You were on patrol with Damian, you’d found an arms deal going down and you didn’t want to wait for back up. You had been stupid. You though that you and Dami could handle it. Until you got snuck up on and shot.
You fell to the ground, the other gang members freezing as they stared at the leaded gun trafficker. Damian froze from battling a gang member and turned to the man who shot you, rage and fear coming off of him in waves. He charged at the man with a scream.
“Yo, he just shot one of Batsy’s little girls!” One of the closer gang members shouted, fear and shock on his face. It was an apparent rule that you didn’t attack a young bat family member. You just didn’t.
“Scatter,” The main gang leader screamed, “Get out of here before Bats or another Batfamily member shows up to kill us all!”
If Damian didn’t kill them first…
You laid on the cold hard ground, one hand pressed into your stomach to try and stop the bleeding. It hurt to breath, there was pain with every wet gasp. Damian was tearing into the arms dealer’s ranks, desperately trying to reach the man who shot you. That’s when Barbra came on the coms, “Robin! Stop coming after them, get Y/S/H/N out of there!” Damian froze from attacking a thug and leapt over to you, dodging more bullets. He grabbed you in a fireman’s hold and pulled out his grappling hook, pulling both of you out of harms way. Just as Batwing and Batwoman appeared to take them out.
Duke landed on the rooftop with the two of you, you spat blood out as the older boy rushed over to help Damian give first aide, “Lark here, Oracle, this is really bad. Y/S/H/N need immediate medical attention. Emergency relocation to the cave is needed.”
“Batman is on his way,” Oracle replied, what you couldn’t hear was her hands shaking as she typed. This was serious, there hadn’t been a scare like this in a while. She got off comms and called over to Alfred, “Call Dick or Jason, get Doctor Thompkins here ASAP!”
You coughed, “Boys,” You whispered, “You gotta promise me something”
“I won’t promise you anything until we get through this,” Robin snapped, pressing his green gloved hands into your wound making you grunt in pain. “Do you hear me Y/N? You don’t get any promises until you’re safe.”
You ignored him, looking up at the cloudy, smoggy sky, “Promise you’ll take me somewhere with a nice view of the stars.”
Lark put a strong hand on your shoulder as he tried his best to each you up and apply pressure with Robin, “Shhh,” he hushed you, “Save your strength Y/S/H/N.“
