Okay, hear me out: I was listening to the radio when I heard this song that sort of reminded me of Lorcan. Weird, I know, but I couldn’t help but think that it perfectly summed up his character and attitude. I know authors sometimes make playlists for their readers to help them understand the vibe of the book they wrote. So those two elements combined are the inspiration for this post. I thought it would be cool to find a song that represents each main character in the Throne of Glass series. Some of these songs I think the lyrics reflect the character while others I just think the overall vibe of the song sums up the character nicely.
That being said, I might miss a couple characters here and there.
Also, I have the most basic music taste so I apologize if your music taste is more refined than mine. I’m an easy to please gal, alright?

This is review is super short and spoiler-free.
I was bored so I thought I could play a little fun game called Kiss, Marry, Kill with the characters from The Lunar Chronicles.
If you don’t know what the game is, it’s basically where I take a set of people (in my case, characters), put their names in a cup, and draw three names. Then I have to decide who to kiss, marry, and kill. It’s that simple.
Just a warning, if you have not read the full series and don’t want to be spoiled, I highly suggest you finish reading the series (because it’s amazing) before reading this post. I include characters that are introduced later in the series and I don’t want to spoil any surprises for anyone who hasn’t experienced the awesome world that is the Lunar Chronicles.
I don’t know about you, but I’m currently on a To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before high right now. After watching the movie, Peter and Lara Jean are all I can think about.
(I probably won’t stop fangirling about them for a while. Just a warning. Speaking of fangirling about Noah and Lana, I read this Buzzfeed article about them and I honestly can’t handle how cute they are together. Just when you don’t think they could get any cuter they hit you with something like this.)
Anyway, I wanted to suggest some books for those who are looking for some cute book relationships after watching/reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Girl (or guy), I get it. I can’t handle the adorable-ness either.
Some of these book/series are mega popular and you’ve probably already read them, but I hope you find some gems in here that you haven’t tried out.
This isn’t one of my normal posts. I’m not going to talk about anything bookish. It’s just an honest talk about something I want to say. If you’re not into serious, dark topics, this post might not be for you.
If you couldn’t already tell by the title, I will be talking about boredom, music, and depression.
