Mini-Challenge: Book Score/Soundtrack hosted by I Just Want to Sit Here and Read

I am going to continue with some unoriginality here. For Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, I can’t help but pick REM’s It’s The End of the World as We Know It for the soundtrack. It would have to be in there somewhere, right?

    Hey Michelle,
    I don’t know about the book you’re reading but when i read the title, I thought of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Glory Days’. Not totally sure why, but I think “best days of our lives” popped into my head. Welp, good luck with the rest of the Read-a-thon! Hope to see you soon!

      Thanks for stopping by, Steph. I’m trying to decide if Glory Days works or not. The book is about a time on earth where the moon has been forced to a closer orbit and it throws off the tides and the climate and lots of people die.

    Glad to know that you are having a wonderful read-a-thon, Michelle! Nice to know that you are reading Craig Thompson’s ‘Blankets’ now! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on it. Hope you continue to have an awesome read-a-thon!

    I love the version of this song by Great Big Sea – solid choice! Happy Reading 🙂

    How did you like the Pfeffer book?

      It was good. Not my favorite book ever but I liked it. I kept thinking about how I would survive in that situation and decided that I probably would not.

        I agree, there are books that I’ve liked much better. I’m interested to see your review on it. Will you move forward to the second book?
