I did not plan on doing this song today, but hey when do things ever go as I plan them?? SYML is an artist I just recently discovered because of a TV show I don’t even watch. I’ve slowly been making my way through his songs, not everything is really my style, but sometimes there are surprises like this one!
Tune: Where’s My Love – SYML
Like I said, this song was a surprise discovery! I was actually listening to another one of his songs that I liked and didn’t notice the auto-play was on, next thing I knew I found myself listening to this song. I can’t say I loved it on first listen, but after a few replays I started to really get into it. It bothers me that I can’t always distinguish his words and I have to search up the lyrics, but I do find myself humming it often which means I’m determined to learn it! It’s soft and tragic and hauntingly beautiful which brings me to the books I chose…
Title: Dreamer Duology by Laini Taylor
This duology can be summed up in the simple words of magical, haunting and tragicish. And I’m saying tragicish for a very specific reason which I can’t talk about because hello spoilers!!!! Rest assured though the song and the books do match! I love this series so much. I mean it is a wacky high fantasy series but it is so so so beautiful and whimsical and I can’t help but love it!
Let me know what you think! Do you ever accidentally discover songs? Have you read this series? What magical songs/books do you love?
