Soundtracks to my Books

I love listening to music while I write and usually make myself a playlist which I listen to over and over (and over) again.

Below I’ve listed some tracks from these playlist which sum up the atmosphere I’ve tried to create in each book (they’re good for a listen when you’re not reading too.)
