Kyra Lennon's Game On Blog Tour - Day 13

My turn has FINALLY arrived for Kyra Lennon's Game On Blog Tour. Woohoo!

I've been waiting not-so-patiently because I'm so excited for Kyra and her debut novel! 

And now, I'll hand over the reigns to Kyra . . .

There is a very good reason I wanted to be right here on Jackie’s blog to talk about the Game On soundtrack. We both share an enormous love of Maroon 5! 

*sigh* I do heart them so much ... Oh, sorry, Kyra. Back to you! 

Maroon 5 seem to have the magic that makes me want to include at least one of their songs to any soundtrack I make for a story. For Game On, the “chosen one” is “Secret.”

When you read the book, you will have a better understanding of why I chose it. ;)

Maroon 5 aside, there are many beautiful songs that contain lyrics than fit certain parts of the story. I always say “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson is Leah’s song. It very much embodies everything Leah is about. The girl who grew up in a small town who wanted to spread her wings and find out who she is, away from the life she’s always known.

Friendship is a strong theme in Game On. The friendship between Leah and Freya is very strong, but many other friendships happen as the story progresses. I chose “Count On Me” by Bruno Mars as the perfect way to show just how much the characters care for each other.

Finally, I chose a fairly recent song as the one I – in my completely impossible fantasies – would use as the closing credits if Game On ever became a movie. “93 Million Miles” by Jason Mraz. As much as Leah rejects her old life, her hometown will always be important to her. The chorus of this song struck a chord with me the first time I heard it, and I think it’s very fitting.

I love the soundtrack, Kyra! Thanks again for letting me join in on this fun blog tour! 

Game On Synopsis
After swapping her small town life to work for one of the top soccer teams in the U.S, Leah Walker thought she could finally leave the ghosts of her past behind. However, when she meets serial womanizer, Radleigh McCoy, the memories of her old life come swarming back, and she is forced to ask herself whether she has really changed at all.

  1. I've been so excited for this post! Thanks for hosting me, Jackie!

  2. I love the Game On sound track, it's gotten me into some great new music. :D

    1. Glad you liked it - it's so much fun picking out suitable songs!

    2. I like choosing songs, too. And your choices sound perfect!

  3. I never thought to have a soundtrack for novels. Do you play the songs while writing/revising certain scenes? Nice choices!

    1. I usually just play it over and over while writing and editing! :D

  4. I've never created a soundtrack for a novel. Great idea.

  5. What a great soundtrack! I think novels should come with their own ST... it would make it easier for the reader to feel certain parts better. IMO. Again... great job on your book Kyra, and thanks Jax for helping Kyra share her music with us.

  6. Gotta love writing soundtracks! Another great entry in this blog tour.

  7. I love hearing the soundtrack to a book or just finding out what music inspired people. Thanks!

    And, Yay Kyra. Love, Game On!
