Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Music Challenge!
By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis
Thanks to Aneeqah at My Not So Real Life for hosting this challenge! She’s asked participants to:
…choose one book that you’ve read this year, or one of your favorites, or even a book that you’ve read for the read-a-thon. Then, choose a song that matches your book. Post a picture/link to your book, and embed/link your song.
My book of choice is:
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
“Secret Heart” by Feist
The character of Harold Fry is timid and reserved, burdened by the monotony of his lifestyle while harbouring a deep-rooted sadness and secret that compels him to walk more than 600 miles from his home in Kingsbridge to Berwick-upon-Tweed.
The song is not only called “Secret Heart,” but the tone of this version of this song is both haunting and harsh, a passionate outcry reverberating beneath Harold Fry’s extremely controlled and optimistic demeanour.
