I've only heard a couple of these songs, but from the ones I've heard... Wow. Seems like you're going for a hateful/depressed angle for some scenes!

Oh geez great, now you got me wanting to listen to these songs again. xP

LOL Hateful? Try painful! I picked them because there's alot of conflict through my novel. Fae are invading and as a direct result of it, Bree's boyfriend Quinn is affected. Their loving relationship is challenged and she spends the book trying to save him while he stalks her. Bree also gets dealt some pretty life altering blows and so I really wanted some emotionally charged songs. I paid close attention to the lyrics and the beat of the music and if it struck a chord in my heart, I chose it :)Everytime I listen to Russian Roulette I see the final scene and I get goosebumps! The songs definitely reflect the mood of each book.

Seriously LOVE this experience!
