Music Match Monday is a meme created by myself, the Authoress. All you do is take the book you're reading now -- or maybe the last book you read -- and find a song that matches it. Like its theme song. And share it with us!
Book: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Song: What I've Overcome by Fireflight
Why: I was listening to this song randomly soon after I finished reading Pandemonium and I was struck by how a lot of the lyrics clicked with the story. Lines like "I feel this freedom / now that my past is erased" speaks directly to Lena's transformation in the story. And then the chorus:
If only you could see me yesterdaywho I used to be before the changeyou'd see a broken heartyou'd see the battle scarsIt's funny how words can't explainhow good it finally feels to break the chainsI'm not what I have doneI'm what I've overcome
I especially love: "I know I'll stumble / I know I'll still face defeat / these second chances / will define me". It's a great song, and know it's branded with the mark of deliria. ;)
