Songs from the Heart(land)

November 28th, 2009 by

I was perusing Lauren Brooke’s Heartland series the other day, and I couldn’t help but notice that a lot of her book titles are very close to or exactly the same as song titles! I wonder if it’s a coincidence… or maybe the series is a secret shout-out to her favorite playlist!

Here are some of her books:

Angst + Horses = Heartland

Angst + Horses = Heartland

Book & Song Title Artist
Coming Home The 88
After the Storm Norman Brown
Breaking Free Troy (from HSM3!)
Taking Chances Celine Dion / Glee Cast
Come What May From Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
One Day You’ll Know Mandy Moore & Jonathon Foreman
Out of the Darkness Graham Nash
Thicker than Water Jack Johnson
Every New Day Five Iron Frenzy
Tomorrow’s Promise Ok, I couldn’t find a music match
on this one.
True Enough Girlyman
Sooner or Later Michael Tolcher
Darkest Hour Ricky Skaggs

What song title might you borrow for your first novel? 😉

    If i were to write a new novel i would use the song title “Whataya Want from me” by Adam Lambert. I am planning on writing about children living up to parent’s expectations. If you are a child and you find yourself asking “well, whataya want from me” you can relate to my ideas.

      That’s a fantastic idea, Mandi! I hope I see a book with that title in the future…
