Making a mixtape for my novel in progress.

So, I found out last night that one of my favorite authors Rachel Cohn (yesyes, I like books meant for teenagers) puts together soundtracks for her books. This excited me as I do that too. I have one for Perfect Gray (my novel in progress) but I think it needs some spicing up (this is mainly do to my very limited interest in music, I like it but don’t seek it out. As Wendy, my heroine and alterego says, “I just don’t have the energy”).
I also got these ubercute Kurt Halsey CD sleeves today:
so, yes I am being a dork and want to make a perfect CD/Mixtape to put in them. hehe.
The three songs I definitely will have are:
The Smiths “Asleep” – stolen from Perks of Being a Wallflower which is one of my favorite books and my sometimes inspiration
Alkaline Trio “Radio” – Just because I and therefore Wendy like to play this over and over to appease many an emotion
Verve Pipe “The Freshmen” – Because it was playing in the car the night he first tried to kiss me.
If anyone has any suggestions for music I might like or that would fit young adult coming of age bs, let me know! I really only listed to whats on the radio.
Since this is an all music themed post, I shall now share a SEXY almost naked pic of Sid playing the guitar that I took about a year ago and just got back recently, enjoy!
