After reading a book I love, I usually research it more. This can lead to the author's playlist- a playlist of songs that they listened to while writing their books. They don't match up to what I would think the book's scenes should sound like, at all.
Obviously the author and I don't see the book in the same way, we get different things out of it. However, I find it extremely curious that they are usually SO different from my personal view.
The two authors that I have noticed it most with are Cassandra Clare's City of Bones and City of Ashes playlists, and Gwen Hayes' Ours Is Just a Little Sorrow playlist.
Cassandra Clare's are HERE.
Gwen Hayes' is HERE.
Do you think they match up to your perspective of the novels?
I'm a little bit mind-blown, honestly, to think that an author can write a story that can be perceived so differently by the reader. That is also what I love about fiction, though. The works of fiction, works of art, can weave such a story in your head, yet the two stories could be seen two different ways in two people's mind's.
