Jingle Bells

'Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the library, a creature surely was stirring--most particularly a reader. Hello, jingle janglers! I'm very excited because IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! Christmas and its red and green atmosphere is my most favorite time of year, and I decided to do a little something fun on the blog this time around. So welcome to Under the Bookish Tree, a five-day long palooza of books and bookish things with inspiration from your favorite Christmas tunes and jingles. And today:

(Don't forget to listen to the bells, too!)

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh, what fun it is to read in a never-ending library. I love books--trust me, I do. But I'm also rather fond of music and the imagination and feel it inspires. In fact, a lot of my work in progress (which mostly exists in my head) is built from scenes that I pictured when listening to a song. So music is my inspiration, whether it's creating a scene, making me an idol, or forming a winning dance routine. (I can dream, okay.) Therefore it makes sense that today I'm sharing some of my favorite books that jingle their own bells!

musical manuscripts

Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith: All I'm gonna say is that this book is super duper quotable okay.

Three Day Summer by Sarvenaz Tash: A romantic fling at Woodstock!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: Eleanor and Park may seem a surprising pair, but their hand holding is the hottest (also, it's the '80s!).

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord: It's pretty cool when your best friend's a star (even if she's like Taylor Swift--ew--in her country era) and has a hot opening act and you get to go on the tour.

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen: I'd also like to note Sarah Dessen's (probably more) musical Just Listen, but This Lullaby is the first book of hers I've read and one of my most favorites.

What are your favorite books featuring music?
