Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by the Total Book Geek. The purpose of this bookish variant is to match a book with a particular song; whether it is character defining, a narrative element, or just an overall book defining track.
So why am I doing this? Well if I had to choose to only have one of the five traditional senses, it would be sound perception above all else. And hey I think it’d be neat to share music I listen to on a daily basis!
This Week’s Song:
Ellie Goulding – Beating Heart
Divergent – Veronica Roth
Okay so this was actually released today and its been on repeat. Legit. I don’t like to hype myself up for movies – especially Divergent –because I still have reservations about the movie adaptation translation, but I have plenty of Goulding’s tracks on my playlist. So regardless of this being in the movie or not, I would have probably included it in my listings.
Here’s the lyric video courtesy of Ellie Goulding’s VEVO on Youtube:
Alternatively, here’s the Soundcloud Track (courtesy of Interscope Geffen A&M Promotion):
Alls I has to say is: FEELS FEELS FEELS FEELS FEELS FEELS.
My initial song choice for this first entry was actually going to be Zedd’s “Find You” (feat. Matthew Koma & Miriam Bryant) that’s also been on repeat and also part of the Divergent soundtrack. But then this came along today… guh.

I just watched the Divergent movie last night and it stayed so true to the novel it was almost creepy! So that’s one aspect of the film you don’t need to worry about. I did a review of the film so check it out if you want too!
Glad to hear that! Though I think (for me) it’s one thing to be a faithful adaptation and another to be a compelling film in and of itself. But I will definitely re-evaluate my opinions once I watch it.
