Midnight Sun

I never thought I'd have the opportunity to update this blog again - but I am so happy that I can! I am beyond ecstatic that Midnight Sun has finally, finally, FINALLY been completed and published!!! And, of course, Stephenie shared the accompanying inspiration playlist with all of us on her website. 

Since the book is brand new and sharing the corresponding quotes to go with it would be mega-spoilery, all we were given was the list. You can listen to the playlist via Spotify directly on her website but, if you're like me and Spotify doesn't work for you - and because YouTube is much better than it used to be and most artists will share their music there for you to enjoy, here are the links for all the songs on the list. (Please support the artists by purchasing their songs and albums on iTunes or directly, if you enjoy them.)

I hadn't realized until a couple years ago that there even was a Midnight Sun playlist. It was posted on her blog to go along with the partially leaked draft. I had somehow missed it (?!), I guess because it wasn't included in the Illustrated Guide since Midnight Sun wasn't a book (yet). Although I immediately obtained and added all of those to my personal collection, I didn't update the blog with that list. Oops. I had been meaning to get to that... I'm going to include the songs that were on that original list and not included in the new official version.

I will create the individual posts for each song, as with the other books, (*already completed and listed in the next post below this one*) but listed here are just the titles and artists with the YouTube links. 

If the playlist is eventually expanded by Stephenie to include the matching quotes at some point, I will update with those on the individual pages as well.

You may recognize some of these songs as duplicates from the other book playlists or the movie the soundtracks.
