BUT some books are just TOO good to not try and get people to read. After I read The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons I was inspired. I was just like, I want everyone to know the amazing of this book because I have to talk about it with somebody! THUS, Book Pushin' was born. I will make a post on this feature whenever I feel inspired to do so. I have one other book I have always recommended to people and I haven't had any complaints about the other book I want to talk about yet so I will post that book soon.
This post however, is all about The Bronze Horseman...read it...love it...feel it...enjoy!
Sooo, I know I'm pretty spazzy and I don't do any justice for the book because there is no way I can describe in words HOW FUCKING GOOD THIS BOOK IS. And if that video isn't enough how about my thoughts while reading...or rather my brief thoughts while reading before I just skipped this step and started just defacing the book itself...
ALL THE FEELS
And the sad thing is guys, that video is almost 11 minutes are there are at least 3 things I wanted to talk about that I didn't. Sad face.
And if all of THAT didn't convey my absolute love for this book or sell you on the story here is my playlist for The Bronze Horseman. I feel like all these songs pretty much represent the story and the emotions...ESPECIALLY the first song. If you've read the book YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
Blame It On The Rain by He Is We (YouTube)--Pretty much the perfect song for Tatiana. I actually am moved to tears when I hear this song and think about this book. No joke. That is how powerful my emotions are.
"My pain is knowing I can't have you.
I can't have you.
Tell me does she look at you the way I do?
Try to understand the words you say and the way you move.?
Does she get the same big rush when you go in for a hug and your cheeks brush?
Tell me, am I crazy?
Or is this more than a crush?"
Titanium cover by Madalyn Bailey (YouTube)--This song. This song IS Tatiana. It fits and exemplifies her PERFECTLY. I am moved by this song. I could have just reposted the entire damn song but for real. The whole song just describes Tatia perfectly.
"I'm criticized but all your bullets richocet.
You shoot me down but I get up.
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose,
Fire away, fire away.
Richocet, take your aim,
Fire away, fire away.
Shoot me down but I won't fall.
I am titanium."
Can't Help Falling In Love cover by Ingrid Michaelson (YouTube)--Tatiana and Alexander. Pretty much sums it up.
"Wise men say only fools rush in,
but I can't help falling in love with you.
Shall I stay? Would it be a sin?
If I can't help falling in love with you?"
Come Back...Be Here by Taylor Swift (YouTube)--The angst that IS Tatiana and Alexander's journey...
"This is when the feeling sinks in,
I don't wanna miss you like this.
Come back, be here.
Come back, be here."
Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars (YouTube)--Alexander's song for Tatiana. The words say it all.
"Her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they're not shining.
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her trying.
She's so beautiful, and I tell her everyday.
When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are. Yeah."
Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol (YouTube)--Another love song for Alexander and Tatiana. I couldn't pick enough! ALL the love songs!
"We'll do it all
On our own
We don't need
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
and just forget the world?"
A Thousand Years by Christina Perri (YouTube)--Tatiana and Alexander's love...I can't...I just can't. Listen to the song. That is all.
"I have died every day
waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a
I'll love you for a
So?...SO?! Do you wanna read this book or what?!
Does this make you want to?
