25 mixtapes for books

A few years ago I listened to Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly {review here}. Throughout the book there were numerous references to songs and bands both from the present and during the French Revolution. Of course, I had to find out if there was a list anywhere on the web with all of the titles mentioned which is when I discovered mixtapes for books! What an awesome idea!

Since that discovery about four years ago, I’ve made a habit of checking on books and authors I’m especially fond of to see if there’s a ‘mixtape.’ Below is a list of just a few I’ve been able to curate for you. I hope you enjoy!

Most of the links are to Spotify. No purchase necessary and these are not affiliate links {not even sure Spotify has those?}. You may have to open a free account if you do not have one already.
