Annie's Infinite Playlist

I love music. I sing and listen to my many awesome playlists every day. However, I suck at creating a good mixtape. I've never tried but I know. I suck. I don't know what's good together, and until a how-to manual is written on this, don't expect one from me. Mixtapes and playlists, I find, go hand in hand. Which means I'm no good at playlists either. I just curate a bunch of my favourite songs and throw them together. Not much thought goes into it. My point is, that these playlists are most likely going to suck. Really. But I can guarantee you (unless you don't like the same music I do) that the songs are great. Well, most of them.

Having said that, I introduce to you my infinite playlist. (The title is taken from Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, in case anyone is looking to sue me, here's creds). Some of them are playlists for genres, moods, some for certain books. Enjoy!

Sorry guys! I totally didn't anticipate this would be so long! Argh, this is the problem with me! I just start listing songs that I love instead of doing the activity at hand. Anyway, I hope this is okay...

* As a girl, I am terribly disappointed by this song...and most of his other songs. I find the lyrics insulting but I can't help but sing along to this song whenever it comes on. It's so catchy. 


  1. Great playlists! I love how eclectic your song choices are!

  2. oooh, love your song choices! Great lists and such wonderful variety too!


    1. That means a lot to me, Dana! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

  3. I love your picks for the dystopias. Especially the two Taylor Swifts.

    1. Thank you! Well, you know, I do love Taylor Swift...and she does have some good songs that AREN'T about break-ups and love. :D

  4. I love how you did your song choices! So creative :) There are some epic songs in there.

    1. I know, some of the songs are absolutely awesome! I never tire of them!

  5. I love your hilarious books playlist...awesome choices!

  6. I don't think you suck at all! I honestly believe there is no right or wrong way to make up a playlist; the randomer, the better! I loved how you labeled your playlists to fit with different types of books!

    1. Aww, thank you! That just gave me the boost of confidence to make a mixtape! But seriously, that's great advice and I'm happy you liked them! :)
