Recommending Books Based on a Taylor Swift Songs|| A collab with Nashita @booksandbrownies!

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!


whenever i listen to a song, i subconsciously find myself connecting it to a book, maybe it’s the lyrics, the tune or the way it made me feel… 9/10 times i ‘assign’ books to songs! it turns out that Nashita @booksandbrownies does the same too! she runs her own book blog, where she screams about taylor swift songs, inej ghafa (six of crows) and shares yummy recipes! go show her blog some love :))

so i had the idea that we could collaborate together- she’s given her top ten taylor swift* songs and i’m recommending books to her, based on the vibes and lyrics!!

the reason i’m posting a recommendation list on a monday, not wednesday/friday is because today is nashita’s sixteenth! the books have been kept a secret as a bit of a surprise ❤ happy birthday darling, i hope you enjoy this post and the book recommendations! i’m so stoked to have one of my best friends doing a collab with me 🥺💖

without further ado, let’s get to the song-recs! all book titles linked!

*if you’re asking why *only* swift…then that’s because i can’t assign books to non-taylor songs, it’s a physical incapability lol.
