Queen of Air and Darkness is less than two months away, so Laughing Listener, Fiction No Chaser and I decided to start a group read of The Dark Artifices to get prepped!
Because Cassandra Clare is a genius, it was inevitable that a chapter into Lady Midnight everyone fell in love with Emma and then fell in love with Julian and then fell in love with them being together.
By popular demand, I created a playlist for their forbidden love. This won’t be finished until the last book is released and we finally know their fate, but I had to share what I had so far!
Here are a few of my faves and why I picked them.
Our Own House, Misterwives
To me, this song describes Emma and Julian as parabatai perfectly. They’ve spent most of their lives together and have grown with and shaped each other into the people they are.
Notable Lyrics: “With the hands over our hearts. And we swore on that day. That it’ll never fall apart.”
Cake By The Ocean, DNCE
Guys, this is THEE song for that beach scene.
Notable Lyrics: “I keep on hoping we’ll eat cake by the ocean.”
While We Wait, Jack Johnson
I had to end it with an open-ended song about wanting more. It describes Julian and Emma and also how I feel about needing more of them in my life.
Notable Lyrics: “It feels right. It feels wrong. It feels like when you have it, then it’s gone.
I want more. More and more….”
Talk To Me
What did you think of my picks? What songs would you add? Do you have any playlists you’d want me to create?
