Book mix- Feel this Distance

And today, I present you, a book mix!

What's that you say? A book mix? That doesn't exist! Ah, but my fine friends, it does indeed now. A book mix is a list of books pertaining to a certain subject, meaning it's pretty much a list of books but with a cooler name. :P

Our first topic and title:

Feel This Distance

a distance between the children and parents, distance from each other
Hate List by Jennifer Brown
can't get much further than the dead
Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
a distance between Nick and his mum, the actual distances the family travels
Candor by Pam Bachorz
a distance from your own thoughts and feelings, along with each other
Fire by Kristin Cashore
who keeps a distance from others
Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott
a distance between her and her parents
Gone by Michael Grant
a distance between the FAYZ and the outside world
Wherever Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten

a distance from what we believe, a distance from our present time
This Is What I Want To Tell You by Heather Duffy Stone

the characters travel through time and space- need I say more?

a physical distance of where they live, how they're brought up

So what do you think of this new idea? Fun? Stupid? Incredibly unproductive and a waste of time?

A music mix will be brought to you tomorrow by Lauren! So make sure you keep your eyes out.

EDIT: The music is HERE!

  1. I love it! Is this gonna be a meme?

  7. this is a great idea. who ever said you can only create a mix with music? this is awesome. thumbs up :)

  8. I love this idea! It's fun and completely unproductive at the same time... good combo. I like your mix.

  9. I love this idea! It's honestly a great way to build a challenge too (if you think you ever want to host one). Wonderful addition to your blog!

  10. What an awesomely fun idea! It's like making mix tapes. . .but with books. So cool!
