Books & Music - Taylor Swift's Reputation

I love music and reading and usually while reading, I'm always listening to something. As long as my partner isn't home, I have music on.

How does this work? I've chosen an album and for that album, I must name a book I think fits each song. If you have any albums that you want me to do this with, let me know below!

For this post, we are going to talk about the only album that I've bought fully in over five years. That album is none other than Reputation!

You can click the link to listen to the whole album or go song by song if you'd like. I hope you enjoy!

1) ...Ready for It? 
Some, some boys are tryin' too hard
He don't try at all, though
I mean, does this not fit Daemon Black? If you've read this amazing series then you know what I mean. If you've not read this series, then get to it! It's freaking fantastic!

2) End Game
Big reputation, big reputation
Ooh you and me we got big reputations, ah
And you heard about me, ooh
I got some big enemies
This fits a little more as you go into the series deeper but I don't want to spoil anything. Just read the series and you'll get it.

3) I Did Something Bad
They say I did something bad
Then why's it feel so good?
They say I did something bad
But why's it feel so good?
Most fun I ever had
And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could
It just felt so good, good
I mean she's having an intimate relationship with her professor. That's pretty bad. 

4) Don't Blame Me
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right (doin' it right, no)
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'd be usin' for the rest of my life, oh
This whole series is about mates. Which fits this song pretty dang well I think.

5) Delicate 
Sometimes I wonder when you sleep
Are you ever dreaming of me?
Sometimes when I look into your eyes
I pretend you're mine, all the damn time
'Cause I like you
I mean towards the middle to the end of the book... you know this could fit for Garrett.

6) Look What You Made Me Do
I don't like your little games
Don't like your tilted stage
The role you made me play
Of the fool, no, I don't like you
I don't like your perfect crime
How you laugh when you lie
You said the gun was mine
Isn't cool, no, I don't like you
I mean.... without spoilers... this fits Cinder pretty well.

7) So It Goes...
And our pieces fall
Right into place
Get caught up in the moments
Lipstick on your face
So it goes
I'm yours to keep
And I'm yours to lose
You know I'm not a bad girl, but I
Do bad things with you
I don't like this series.... never could finish the first book but to me this fits. Ana is a good girl that does naughty things with Christian.

8) Gorgeous 
You're so gorgeous
I can't say anything to your face
'Cause look at your face
I feel like this is Evie when it comes to Luc.

9) Getaway Car
We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde
Until I switched to the other side
To the other si-i-i-i-ide
It's no surprise I turned you in
'Cause us traitors never win
No spoilers but this really fits a certain character in this one that if you've read, you know who I mean and if you've not read this one... 

10) King of My Heart
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
This fits the couple in this book so much and it reminds me of them when I hear it. 

11) Dancing with Our Hands Tied 
I could've spent forever with your hands in my pockets
Picture of your face in an invisible locket
You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it
I had a bad feeling
And darling, you had turned my bed into a sacred oasis
People started talking, putting us through our paces
I knew there was no one in the world who could take it
I had a bad feeling
I know I know, this is a movie not a book but I love this movie and it fits here for me. It was actually the only thing I could think of that fits here. #sorrynotsorry

12) Dress
Say my name and everything just stops
I don't want you like a best friend
Only bought this dress so you could take it off, take it off (ha, ha, ha, ha)
Carve your name into my bedpost
'Cause I don’t want you like a best friend
Only bought this dress so you could take it off, take it off (ha, ha, ha, ha)
This is the best friends to lovers song and this book is just that.

13) This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things 
This is why we can't have nice things, darling
Because you break them
I had to take them away
This is why we can't have nice things, honey
Did you think I wouldn't hear all the things you said about me?
This is why we can't have nice things
Just read the book and you'll understand. 

14) Call It What You Want
My baby's fit like a daydream
Walking with his head down
I'm the one he's walking to
So call it what you want, yeah, call it what you want to
My baby's fly like a jet stream
High above the whole scene
Loves me like I'm brand new
This isn't a spoiler... the next book coming out this summer is all about the guy that Layla didn't pick so... anyway, this one reminds me of Roth and Layla and it's cute. 

15) New Year's Day
You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi
I can tell that it's going to be a long road
I'll be there if you're the toast of the town babe
Or if you strike out and you're crawling home
Jace and Clary are such an amazing couple and they really are there for the other no matter what. This song fits them I think. 
Well that wraps this installment of Books & Music! Hope you enjoyed it!
