Songs that inspired We Are Eternal


Almost any writer will tell you that music and writing go hand-in-hand. Here's a list of all the songs I listened to on repeat while penning and editing and re-editing my young adult novel, We Are Eternal. Some are lifted from soundtracks of YA book-to-movie adaptations. Some are just radio bops from 2017 (the year I was editing). All of them capture the "heart" and spirit of the novel. Listen to these lyrics without reading the book, and you'll know what this story is about.

All songs link to Youtube. Hope you discover some new music you love!***
