Challenge hosted by Kat @My Shelf Confessions

The challenge: Pick a song that goes with your current read or very recent read that you’ve read during the WWRAT. Tell us the name of the book and explain why the song goes with  your book. 

The book I’m using for this challenge is: Falling For Her Fiancé by Cindi Madsen

falling-for-her-fiance

This is a sweet romance book about best friends, Dani and Wes, who pretend they’re engaged for a while just so they can help each other out, but end up falling in love with each other for real.

I’m really enjoying this story so far, and I cannot wait to see these two together, come on you guys! I just read a scene in which they dance at Wes’s sister wedding and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. (╯◕‿◕)╯☆. :*゚.+:

The scene:

rat-challenge-song

The song: It’s a Fluke by Tiago Iorc *swooon*

The song is so beautiful and romantic (but not over the top romantic or cheesy), plus the lyrics really remind me of Wes and Dani in that moment of the book. They are just so content to be in each other’s arms, even if in the back of their minds they think they are only pretending. They need to get together asap!

Sinopse: In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe. 

In a city of walls and secrets, where only one man is supposed to possess magic, seventeen-year-old Kai struggles to keep hidden her own secret—she can manipulate the threads of time. When Kai was eight, she was found by Reev on the riverbank, and her “brother” has taken care of her ever since. Kai doesn’t know where her ability comes from—or where she came from. All that matters is that she and Reev stay together, and maybe one day move out of the freight container they call home, away from the metal walls of the Labyrinth. Kai’s only friend is Avan, the shopkeeper’s son with the scandalous reputation that both frightens and intrigues her.

Then Reev disappears. When keeping silent and safe means losing him forever, Kai vows to do whatever it takes to find him. She will leave the only home she’s ever known and risk getting caught up in a revolution centuries in the making. But to save Reev, Kai must unravel the threads of her past and face shocking truths about her brother, her friendship with Avan, and her unique power.

Hoje no BaD, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making o primeiro da série Fairyland, de Catherynne M. Valente:

bargain-the-girl-who

Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland. The new Marquess is unpredictable and fickle, and also not much older than September. Only September can retrieve a talisman the Marquess wants from the enchanted woods, and if she doesn’t . . . then the Marquess will make life impossible for the inhabitants of Fairyland. September is already making new friends, including a book-loving Wyvern and a mysterious boy named Saturday.
