Brooding Over YA and Music

This week the Brooding YA Hero Street Team is talking music and books! I used to listen to music CONSTANTLY, but then I developed this massive audiobook addiction. Now any spare second I have to listen to anything goes into listening to audiobooks. I know. I really need to work on becoming a more well-rounded person. I just need to catch up on my TBR first…LOL.

So instead of creating a playlist of music that I like to listen to accompany the book, I’ve compiled a “play”list of YA novels with music at their heart.

Have You Pre-Ordered Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me?!

33799449.jpgHave you ever wished you could receive a little guidance from your favorite book boyfriend? Ever dreamed of being the Chosen One in a YA novel? Want to know all the secrets of surviving the dreaded plot twist?

Or maybe you’re just really confused about what “opal-tinted, luminous cerulean orbs” actually are?

Well, popular Twitter personality @broodingYAhero is here to help as he tackles the final frontier in his media dominance: writing a book. Join Broody McHottiepants as he attempts to pen Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me, a “self-help” guide (with activities–you always need activities) that lovingly pokes fun at the YA tropes that we roll our eyes at, but secretly love.

As his nefarious ex, Blondie DeMeani, attempts to thwart him at every turn, Broody overcomes to detail, among other topics, how to choose your genre, how to keep your love interest engaged (while maintaining lead character status), his secret formula for guaranteed love triangle success, and how to make sure you secure that sequel, all while keeping his hair perfectly coiffed and never breaking a sweat.

    I got this for Kester bc he is a big fan. But I think this is an adorable and perfect book for the classroom too. To talk about tropes and genre would be fabulous…and this is the most creative way I’ve seen it done! I think this is going to be a hit with educators.

      Oh, awesome! Oh yeah! Kester is on the Street Team too. He was so excited when he got picked. I love seeing other bloggers so excited about books! It sounds perfect for a classroom discussion!

        It’s perfect to use to discuss writing techniques – I would have loved a book like that in my Secondary English class. I’ll prob show Dawn (my old professor) in hopes that they start picking them up! Kester’s excitement shows the excitement kids will have!

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        I so wish I could have had an English class like that in high school. I would have loved to have gotten more into reading and writing at a younger age. You are going to have the opportunity to change kids’ lives, you know?! That’s amazing!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      I can’t take credit for the theme. The Street Team managers for this book are amazing and come up with great themes for us. I love music-themed books too! It was definitely a fun topic for the week. 🙂

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      It is wonderful! I actually listened to that one on audio as well. I do a ton of audiobooks really. And that one is so well done.

      I love books that incorporate music so well. I think it really adds to the tone of the overall story and is a lot of fun!
