Book Playlist: ‘All The Places I’ve Cried In Public’

Do you ever find a song that just sums up a book?

Not always. But sometimes it just clicks, in fact I try and put a song on all my reviews but its often quite hard! A few months ago, I read All the Places I’ve Cried in Public and there was a lot of songs that came to mind. (Admittedly most of them by The Smiths or Louis Capaldi. This book made me cry a lot – although mostly in private). I enjoyed the book but I honestly wasn’t prepared for what it was about. The title and almost cartoony cover really didn’t hint at it’s plot – the haunting story of an older teen who is manipulated and abused by her boyfriend. It was my first read of Holly Bourne, and whilst I really liked her style, I think a lot of her books are about similar themes. Maybe some for after the global pandemic? (Although I really want to read Am I Normal Yet?).

Anyway. Here’s the playlist I made; I had to screenshot it from my Spotify account. Have you read this book? Or got any other ideas for songs the playlist (also if you’ve done a book playlist on any other book put a link in the comment. I’d love to see some others).

I’m a teenager from Manchester, and a proud Hufflepuff. I like oversized jumpers, indie music you’ve probably not heard of, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teenage romance (it’s ironic I know – but you can’t really go wrong with ‘A Fault in Our Stars’)! I’m always being told to go and ‘be active’ or something instead of sitting in my room reading and listening to the Smiths, but honestly I don’t see the point. Why would I want to go for a run when I could be reading Rainbow Rowell or Good Omens. And it’s Morrisey for god’s sake. So, I decided to do something with the growing piles of books in my room… and you’re reading the product! It’s a lot more interesting than I thought it would be and I really enjoy it – and I hope you do too. I try to write a review after I’ve read the book each week every Saturday, but no promises! The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite there. Yet.
