Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Songs I Wish were Novels

This week's Top Ten Tuesday:  10 Songs I Wish were Novels. This isn't a hard for me because the songs I like feel like small novels. It's harder (as usual) to narrow down my titles. But I did only put two Taylor Swift songs on the list. I have one that I'm working on currently... and two more that I want to write.

You Can't Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl: Love this song and it would make for an interesting New Adult book - the way the song reads not the video.

Blank Space : Who doesn't want this to be a book?

Strawberry Wine: Seventeen is a magical time with a hot summer romance at a vineyard. 

You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This: Another fun new adult book - friends to lovers trope

 Call Me Maybe: Just a fun loving song that could start off a book.

Come Back...Be Here: This could continue with the Hollywood trend in YA. A movie star meets a normal girl and they hang out before he leaves to film on location. She's left behind.

There's More to Me Than You: A girl stand up on her own, making her path in life. This song could jump start a book.

Driftwood: I love this song and it could fit in nicely with someone just floating through life until they have to make the biggest choice of their life. 

Turn on the Radio: I can see this was a country music hit, with a rising young girl who thought she had the best guy ever, but he couldn't handle her fame

Stay - one of my favorite songs from high school. Why did she leave and could they ever find their way back to each other.

Love this list! I feel like anything Jessica Andrews sings should be a novel. Also, Stay....fantastic choice, that left so many unanswered questions in high school!

This is a great concept for a post, and I love this idea! So many of my book ideas start out as someone else's song...it is amazing how much a small bit of narrative in lyrics can inspire you to want the whole story! Summer Wine would make a great novel :D
