The Book Theme Meme #4 : Razorland

Hello guys !

Another Sunday have come around and you know what that means, right? It’s time for another book-song pairing for this meme created by Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secret.

RAZORLAND (1)

The rules:

  • Link back to the originator
  • Choose a book or book series.
  • Choose a song you feel like represents the book (fyi: it doesn’t have to have words, it can be classical or a score).
  • Post the book/series and the song.
  • Tell us what about the song reminds you of the book. Is it a particular lyric/s? Is it the general feeling of the song? Explain a little.

This week it’s not one book I’m choosing, but a trilogy. It’s Razorland by Ann Aguirre. Remember how I said I read this and loved it but I feel it’s underrated so I will showcase it more ? Yeah, I failed miserably (I think ?) but I shall make up for it right now.This is a post-apocalyptic dystopia and the song that I feel fits it best is:

Radioactive Imagine Dragons

 

Want to know why? Because the world was destroyed with a nuclear weapon, explosion, thing (I don’t remember exactly, IT’S BEEN SO LONG!) and the survivers live underground.

I raise my flag and dye my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’re painted red to fit right in
Whoa

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive

The ones that were stricken by the radioactivity (SEE?) and didn’t die, got mutated into some zombie-like creatures and shit goes down between the healthy people and the crazy mutans. And there’s a lot of blood and killings and… JUST READ IT.

P.s: The covers are a direct link to the Goodreads page of Book 1.


That’s it until next time.

What other song do you think is a good fit for Razorland?

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
