Mixtape Series: Evermore Book Tag

Album cover to Evermore

If anyone can make us feel bad for just sitting around, eating our feelings, and never getting our of our pajamas during COVID, it’s Taylor Swift. Ok, fine, make an entire album because you can. Folklore was unexpected and exactly what we needed. So, when BAM MA’AM she came out with a sister album, my jaw hit the floor.

Taylor Swift – most likely to succeed because she is an over achiever. I see you. *applauds*

Anyway, if I had to choose between Evermore and Folklore, this fan is picking Evermore. The lyrics just hit different. I don’t know. I feel like I can’t properly explain or express why I like it more. Maybe it just came out at the right time for me. Anyway, with a lyricist like Swift, it makes perfect sense to apply her songs to books, right?

Well, I decided to take it a step further and turn it into a tag. Not only do I want to know what you think of the album, I’d love to know what books come to mind when you listen to these lyrics! Please keep in mind, I’ve bolded the line in the song that prompted that specific idea per song along with our answers.

willow – Author you always read

lisa kleypas books

The more that you say, the less I know
Wherever you stray, I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man

champagne problems – Most disappointing read

Gathering of shadows

Your mom’s ring in your pocket
My picture in your wallet
Your heart was glass, I dropped it
Champagne problems

gold rush – Overhyped book

throne of glass

I don’t like slow motion, double vision in rose blush
I don’t like that falling feels like flying ’til the bone crush
Everybody wants you
But I don’t like a gold rush

’tis the season – Book you regret reading

nevernight

​’Tis the damn season, write this down
I’m stayin’ at my parents’ house
And the road not taken looks real good now
And it always leads to you and my hometown

tolerate it – Book with unrequited love

If it’s all in my head, tell me now
Tell me I’ve got it wrong somehow
I know my love should be celebrated
But you tolerate it

no body, no crime – Best villain

Severus Snape

I think he did it, but I just can’t prove it
I think he did it, but I just can’t prove it
No, no body, no crime
But I ain’t lettin’ up until the day I die

happiness – Book you never wanted to end

call me by your name

There’ll be happiness after you
But there was happiness because of you
Both of these things can be true
There is happiness

dorothea – Book that made you fall in love with reading.

are you there, God? It's me, Margaret

Hey, Dorothea, do you ever stop and think about me?
When we were younger down in the park
Honey, making a lark of the misery
You got shiny friends since you left town

coney island – Book that you are emotionally recovering from

the book thief

And if this is the long haul
How’d we get here so soon?
Did I close my fist around something delicate?
Did I shatter you?

ivy – Book with your favourite fantasy world

the lord of the rings

Oh, I can’t
Stop you putting roots in my dreamland

My house of stone, your ivy grows
And now I’m covered in you

cowboy like me – An ending you didn’t anticipate

where the crawdads sing

I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve
Takes one to know one
You’re a cowboy like me

long story short – A book that ruined a series

allegiant

And I fell from the pedestal
Right down the rabbit hole
Long story short, it was a bad time

marjorie – Book with best takeaway

the five people you meet in heaven

Never be so kind
You forget to be clever
Never be so clever
You forget to be kind

closure – Book you DNF’ed

king's cage

Yes, I got your letter
Yes, I’m doing better
I know that it’s over, I don’t need your
Closure, your closure

evermore – Series you didn’t/don’t want to see end

the ravenels

I’ve been down since July
Motion capture
Put me in a bad light
I replay my footsteps on each stepping stone
