Woo! There’s only 1 week until UNTOUCHED goes live, and you know what that means? It’s time for a playlist!
I put together some songs that really inspired me when I was writing the novella… Some music Emerson and Juliet would have liked, and some that just really reminded me of the characters. I hope you enjoy!
1. Use Somebody — The Kings of Leon
This song is playing in the book during a pretty charged encounter!
2. The Only Exception — Paramore
Both Emerson and Juliet start out so protective of their hearts, they’ve been hurt before. “But darling, you are the only exception/ And I’m on my way to believing.”
3. Sparks Fly — Taylor Swift
This is one of my favorite songs, and I think it suits them so well! That first giddy rush of love… “You’re the kind of reckless that should send me running/ but I kind of know that I won’t get far.”
4. Drugs or Me — Jimmy Eat World.
This one is for Emerson. I want to give him a hug!
5. This Kiss — Faith Hill
A classic. “This kiss/ this kiss/ it’s criminal.”
6. Stellar — Incubus
This was me and my first boyfriend’s song. It’s so gorgeous. “How do you do it?/ Make me feel like I do/ How do you do it?/ It’s better than I ever knew.”
7. Anything Can Happen — Ellie Goudling
In the story, Emerson and Juliet take off for a perfect day together, and this is such a great song for it: so full of hope and possibility and joy.
That’s all for now!
