Happy Monday everyone! I hope your new year is going great so far. Keep working on all your goals 😀

Today is gonna be the Music Shuffle Book Tag that the amazing Destiny @ Howling Libraries tagged me in last month. This tag is fun to combine both music and books, which is something I actually want to try more often. This tag was created by Becca Leighanne and you basically put your tunes on shuffle. By using 5-10 songs, you pick a: a ship, a book and a character that is their song. You owe 0 explanation for why you chose that song 🙂 I know that Destiny posted fan art she found and lyrics to the song she chose. I will also include the lyrics and their source, but still stick with the book covers 🙂 Let’s do this! These possibly might be spoilers if you’re not caught up on the series or haven’t started the book series yet, but I’ll try and not do that.

1. Close to Heaven by Breaking Benjamin

Book/Characters/Ship: Laia and Elias from An Ember in the Ashes series

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Release me, my love

So I’ll stay unforgiven

And I’ll keep love together

And I know you try

And I hope you realize

You know the time is right

The whole world is watching when you rise

The whole world is beating for you right now

If it takes my whole life I won’t break I won’t end

It’ll all be worth it in the end

‘Cause I can only tell you what I know

That I need you in my life

We’re all alone

Walking in twilight

The night has been long and so many have fallen

Feel no remorse

Light will be breaking

Our freedom is worth it all

I cannot breathe and I’m still going under

It’s getting closer

I feel the struggle

It’s wasting me from inside

Delirium x4

Can’t write my story
