Avoiding Commitment Playlist

About a month or so ago I posted a topic entitled “Playlists Inspired by Books.”  It’s no secret that I love music & I love books.  So what better way for me to commemorate my favorite books and beloved characters than by making playlists to remind me of them?  It helps turn dreaded tasks such as walking on the treadmill or grocery shopping into a fun activity by listening to music that reminds me of my beloved characters and of course, book boyfriends!  

Well, on one of my very favorite (& hilarious I might add) Facebook pages, many people have been posting songs that remind them of the fabulous book, Avoiding Commitment by the fabulous author, K.A. Linde.  If you haven’t read this book yet, it’s a MUST READ!  And yes, shouty caps intended!

Anyway, when this story first originated on Fiction Press, the author preceded each chapter with a song title to reflect the mood of the upcoming chapter.  Who better to create a book-inspired playlist than the author herself?  Immediately, I found myself searching for and downloading all of the songs onto my mp3 player.  Now I can think of Jack and Lexi whenever I want and wherever I go.  I have since made a playlist on YouTube to share with the fan page on Facebook.  The videos are embedded on the sidebar.  Feel free to give it a listen in your spare time.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!  Jack is a hard character to forget (not that I’d ever want to).
