I don’t always make a playlist when I’m writing a book, but for PRETTY DEAD GIRLS, I created the playlist…almost a year before I finished writing it. Weird right? But I must admit, I did write the first few chapters months before actually completing the book (the submission process made that happen).
So here are a few of my favorite songs from the PDG playlist. If you want to check out the entire playlist (and my Spotify profile), go HERE.
Judas by Banks – this song is so moody and a little dark. Perfect atmosphere for writing/reading murderous thrillers.
Never Told A Lie by George Hadfield – I really love this song (I’m sure it made its first appearance on my Discovery Weekly playlist on Spotify). The lyrics are so perfect for PDG – because the book is full of lies….
Seventeen by Tessa Rae – I know she sings about feeling seventeen, but my characters are actually right around seventeen in PDG, and so this song…fits. Plus, it’s got that moody thing going for it. This playlist is mostly all about moody!
Tell Me by Groove Theory – I don’t even remember how this song got on the PDG playlist in the first place, but I have always loved it. It is the typical mid-90s awesome song. The video is..not the best. But the song is great!
Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.In the peaceful seaside town of Cape Bonita, wicked secrets and lies are hidden just beneath the surface. But all it takes is one tragedy for them to be exposed.
The most popular girls in school are turning up dead, and Penelope Malone is terrified she’s next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to a boy from her physics class. The one she’s never really noticed before, with the rumored dark past and a brooding stare that cuts right through her.
There’s something he isn’t telling her. But there’s something she’s not telling him, either.
Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed.
