In preparation for the publication of Supernaturally, follow-up to Paranormalcy, Kiersten White created this Amazon exclusive playlist that captures the personalities of book's characters, Evie, Reth, Vivian, and Lend. Settle back, have a listen, and check out White's notes about each track.
"Missing" by Flyleaf
I imagine this song playing for Evie when she’s feeling most down, worrying that whatever is missing inside of her will never be fixed.
"Oh, It Is Love" by Hellogoodbye
This sweet, happy love song has always been Evie and Lend’s song for me. When it comes to relationships, they both have this type of hopeful innocence.
"All I Wanted" by Paramore
Another song for Evie when she is feeling like everything is lost.
"Misguided Ghosts" by Paramore
A song about trying to find a place in a world you don’t feel like you’re really living in.
"Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri
I’ve heard from many people (and agree) that this is a great song for Evie and Reth’s past.
"The Drumming Song" by Florence + the Machine
The intensity and focused passion of this song makes me think of my darling Jack, along with the references to heaven and hell, a favorite theme of his.
"Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse
This is one of my favorite “Reth” songs, though he’d never bother listening to human music…
"I Will Possess Your Heart" by Death Cab for Cutie
Another song for Reth and Evie’s relationship, evoking his feelings of inevitability when it comes to being with Evie.
"I Will Follow You into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie
This song lends itself well to musings on the realities of a mortal/immortal relationship. If you’re prone to musing about such things, which I am.
"Engines" by Snow Patrol
“I know I love you like the sunlit water on your skin.” Another love song for Evie and Lend.
"Give Me Strength" by Snow Patrol
A song for all of the people in Evie’s life she realizes are her family.
"Give Me Strength" by Ingrid Michaelson
A very sad, sweet, aching song about trying to find your home.
"Firelight" by Snow Patrol
A song for dear, comatose Vivian.
