A Truthwitch Affair | Playlist for Iseult

All week long, Alexa of Alexa Loves Books and I will be showing our love and enthusiasm 
for Susan Dennard's new fantasy series Truthwitch. 

Today we're sharing playlists for each of the characters! Alexa created one for Safi and I made one for Iseult. During my second reading of Truthwitch, I paid closer attention to Iseult's moods and what she was personally feeling throughout the story. It really helped me choose the music because I immediately knew the tone would be a bit somber and mellow thrown in with a few upbeat songs to signify the moments with Safi since that's when she's happiest. 

The playlist is below (I hope you'll subscribe!) but I also shared the exact lyrics from each song that reminded me of Iseult. 

Listen and enjoy!

"My Same" by Adele
I don't know who I'd be if I didn't know you
You're so provocative, I'm so conservative
You're so adventurous, I'm so very cautious, combining
You'd think we wouldn't, we do, but we do

"Trouble" by Cage the Elephant
Got so much to lose,
Got so much to prove,
God don't let me lose my mind.
Trouble on my left,
Trouble on my right,
I've been facing trouble almost all my life.

"Which Witch" by Florence + the Machine
And it's my whole heart
Weighed and measured inside
And it's an old scar
Trying to bleach it out
And it's my whole heart
Deemed and delivered a crime
I'm on trial, waiting 'til the beat comes out

"I Follow Rivers" by Lykke Li
You're my river running high
Run deep, run wild
I, I follow, I follow you
Deep sea baby, I follow you

"Walk at Night" by Cults
When I walk at night I can't help but I know its right
when I walk alone I'm hoping for things unknown
When I'm on my own I try to get as far from home
when I wanna be, there's no bright light surrounding me

"Stay Alive" by Jose Gonzales
I will stay with you tonight
Hold you close 'til the morning light
In the morning watch a new day rise
We'll do whatever just to stay alive
We'll do whatever just to stay alive

"Dust to Dust" by The Civil Wars 
You've held your head up
You've fought the fight
You bear the scars
You've done your time
Listen to me
You've been lonely too long

"Keeping Your Head Up" by Birdy
I know your soul; I'll be your home
Til you can breathe on your own
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
I'll be keeping your head up
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight

"Flume" by Bon Iver
I am my mother's only one
It's enough
I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know

"Moon River" by Andy Williams (sung by Audrey Hepburn)
Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waiting, round the bend
My Huckleberry Friend, Moon River, and me

  1. I really love that your playlist for Iseult sounds SO different from my playlist for Safi! And of the songs you've chosen, I think Dust to Dust is my favorite <3


with love,
