Vicarious is a gritty, high-tech mystery with a lot of action scenes and dark emotions. I think you’ll find that this playlist captures those elements quite well. Click here to check out the playlist, hosted by In Love With Handmade, and see my notes for each of the songs I selected.
GIRL AGAINST THE UNIVERSE:
The tone of this book is mostly upbeat and hopeful, with occasional pensive moments and a dash of Irish flavor. I’ve compiled a Lucky Thirteen playlist that ought to leave you feeling just as warm and hopeful as the novel does. Click here to see the official GATU playlist, hosted by Bookiemoji. Enjoy!
I wanted to build a playlist that reflected the book’s dark tone as well as incorporated songs that main character Max would actually listen to. But it’s not all doom and gloom and murder—the book is meant to be an exciting and entertaining read that leaves you with a bit of hope and a (perhaps evil) smile on your face. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of songs that meld the fun of California and high school with the angry angst of lying and betrayal. Enjoy!

Because Infinite Repeat is a darker story than The Art of Lainey, it only makes sense that the playlist would contain darker music. However, both stories end on a hopeful note and I included a mix of both melancholy and uplifting music from multiple genres on this list. Enjoy! Click here to go to the official EpicReads playlist.
THE ART OF LAINEY:
I had several goals for The Art of Lainey playlist. I wanted to capture the essence of fun and summer and falling in and out of love. I also wanted to feature songs from several different genres since each of my main characters has different musical tastes. Finally, I wanted to give my early readers a chance to weigh in on the songs they felt worked with the book, so five of these songs were chosen from a list submitted by my street team. (Thanks, #TeamLainey!) Ranging from punk to hip-hop to Taylor Swift, I truly think this playlist has something for everyone.
