I am so excited to be part of the I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman blog tour!
The book is all about fandoms and music so, this blog tour each blogger will be sharing a song from IWBFT playlist and each blogger will be also picking a song that we love to add!
For Angel Rahimi life is about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything she loves – her friend Juliet, her dreams, her place in the world.
Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band with his mates is all he ever dreamed of doing.
But dreams don’t always turn out the way you think and when Jimmy and Angel are unexpectedly thrust together, they find out how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.
A funny, wise, and heartbreakingly true coming of age novel. I Was Born for This is a stunning reflection of modern teenage life, and the power of believing in something – especially yourself.
Alice's Song -
This track is all about musical integrity, which is a big theme in I Was Born for This. Chance is lamenting the fact that the music industry is losing respect for mixtapes, and while this isn’t a specific thing that The Ark are concerned with, the boyband boys in IWBFT are absolutely concerned that they’re losing their integrity as music artists and being overtaken by corporate interests and companies just trying to make money off their worldwide fame. That’s just one of the things making Jimmy feel ill at ease in his band and his place in the world of fame…
My song -
For this I have chosen one of my all time favourite song. A Day To Remember is my favourite band. I didn't really listen to a lot of music when I was younger but, when I hit 14/15 I started listening to more rock bands and then started listening to ADTR. They are always the band I listen too for comfort, amazing band to see live and this is my favourite song from them. It is just amazing, lyrics are wonderful and I just love it!
