Good morning, everyone! Happy Monday!
How are you all today? It is a very rainy and cloudy day. Yesterday was cloudy as well! I don’t mind when it is cloudy but I also start to feel glum when it is always cloudy. However, I am going to try and make the best of the stormy whether and the fact that I am at home, off work today.
Today’s post is Monday Music Match Up. I have not done this post for a couple of weeks and I have to say, I have missed it. For those of you who don’t know or are new to my page, Monday Music Match Up is a weekly feature here at HerBookishDesires that shares the music that I have listened to, or matched, with certain books or series. This week’s topic is the 🦋Haven🦋 trilogy. by Kristi Cook.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Author: Kristi Cook
Synopsis as from Goodreads:
Violet McKenna thought she was crazy when she had a vivid vision of her dad’s murder—but when her premonition came true, her life fell apart. Then she found a new school: Winterhaven. There, Violet fits right in. All the students have special “gifts” like her own, and she quickly finds a close group of friends. But Violet’s attraction to an alluring boy becomes problematic when intense visions of his death start to haunt her. In her premonitions, the secret he is unwilling to share begins to reveal itself—and the unbelievable becomes reality. To Violet’s horror, she learns that their destinies are intertwined in a critical—and deadly—way.
While reading this trilogy, I listened to “Prelude” by Jesse Cook. I chose this song because it has a nice, mysterious vibe to it similar to that of the books, but it also has a faster tempo towards the end, oftentimes mirroring the crescendos of the book itself if that makes sense! Please, feel free to give the music a listen while you read the synopsis!
Unfortunately, there is no fan art for these books! I really wish there was. They are wonderful books! I have read them multiple times because I love them so much. I was first introduced to Haven when I was reading books from my local city library rather than buying them at the bookstore. (I have always preferred the ambience of a library compared to that of a bookstore but I also love owning books 😂) A year or two or three later, I randomly thought about the book and I really wanted to have a copy of my own so I got a copy at Barnes and Noble. I actually still remember that day even though it was probably 8-9 years ago!
Have you read Haven? Is it something that you would read? What did you think of the music? Let me know in the comments below!
