Top 5 books that share Taylor song titles

Hello friends!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is a freebie!! But since I remain in my Swiftie era, today I am doing top 5 books that share Taylor song titles!!

I am hoping that after last week’s debacle, you all have a spot of relief from my crazy prompt picking… I’m definitely going to have to have a hard think about what we do next quarter. You know, as opposed to winging it as I write the post…

However, today I am going to do a post I’ve actually been thinking about for quite some time. And by ‘some time’, I mean approximately five years when the Brigid Kemmerer book below was released. Why? Oh, because she’s dead. Oh! Sorry, I mean, because I was obsessed with the Reputation album, and the book shared a title with one of the songs. And then over the last few years I’ve noticed it more and more. So, now we have a post. You’re welcome!

The April to June 2024 topics are out now!! Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted (albeit very terribly) here @ Meeghan reads.

Let’s look at my top 5 books that share Taylor song titles.

top 5 books that share Taylor song titles

Call It What You Want — Brigid Kemmerer

Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer

NOTE: Call It What You Want is from Taylor Swift album Reputation.

When his dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town, Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah. Even worse, his father’s failed suicide attempt leaves Rob and his mother responsible for his care.

Everyone thinks of Meagan as a typical overachiever, but she has a secret of her own after the pressure got to her last year. And when her sister comes home from college pregnant, keeping it from her parents might be more than she can handle.

When Rob and Meagan are paired together for a calculus project, they’re both reluctant to let anyone through the walls they’ve built. But when Meagan learns of Rob’s plan to fix the damage caused by his father, it could ruin more than their fragile new friendship…

This captivating, heartfelt novel asks the question: Is it okay to do something wrong for the right reasons?

I Think He Knows — Katie Bailey

NOTE: I Think He Knows is from Taylor Swift’s album Lover.

I fell in love with Carter James Callahan’s smart-mouthed smirk long before it was labeled “The Sexiest Smile In Hollywood”.

I also fell for his broad, muscular shoulders, his impossibly blue eyes, his… Nope! Not going there anymore. Because while Carter may frequent my dreams every night, I will only ever frequent his friend zone. Which is why I’m on an official mission to rid myself of my pesky feelings for him I’m gonna put myself out there, start dating, and stop hopelessly crushing on my best friend.

Deep down, I know this is for the best. It would never work between I’m a single mom with an impressive collection of stained sweatpants, he’s a serial-dating celeb heartthrob who never wants to be tied down to anything or anyone.

So when the media breaks a story that Carter is getting married, nobody is more shocked than I am. Especially when I click on the article and see that his mysterious fiancée is… me?!

Never Ever Getting Back Together by Sophie Gonzales

NOTE: [We are} Never, Ever Getting Back Together is from Taylor Swift’s album Red.

It’s been two years since Maya’s ex-boyfriend cheated on her, and she still can’t escape him: his sister married the crown prince of a minor European country and he captured hearts as her charming younger brother. If the world only knew the real Jordy, the manipulative liar who broke Maya’s heart.

Skye Kaplan was always cautious with her heart until Jordy said all the right things and earned her trust. Now his face is all over the media and Skye is still wondering why he stopped calling.

When Maya and Skye are invited to star on the reality dating show Second-Chance Romance, they’re whisked away to a beautiful mansion along with four more of Jordy’s exes to compete for his affections while the whole world watches. Skye wonders if she and Jordy can recapture the spark she knows they had, but Maya has other plans: exposing Jordy and getting revenge. As they navigate the competition, Skye and Maya discover that their real happily ever after is nothing they could have scripted.

Begin Again — Emma Lord

NOTE: Begin Again is from Taylor Swift’s album Red.

As usual, Andie Rose has a plan: Transfer from community college to the hyper competitive Blue Ridge State, major in psychology, and maintain her lifelong goal of becoming an iconic self-help figure despite the nerves that have recently thrown her for a loop. All it will take is ruthless organization, hard work, and her trademark unrelenting enthusiasm to pull it all together.

But the moment Andie arrives, the rest of her plans go off the rails. Her rocky relationship with her boyfriend Connor only gets more complicated when she discovers he transferred out of Blue Ridge to her community college. Her roommate Shay needs a major, and despite Andie’s impressive track record of being The Fixer, she’s stumped on how to help. And Milo, her coffee-guzzling grump of an R.A. with seafoam green eyes, is somehow disrupting all her ideas about love and relationships one sleep-deprived wisecrack at a time.

But sometimes, when all your plans are in rubble at your feet, you find out what you’re made of. And when Andie starts to find the power of her voice as the anonymous Squire on the school’s legendary pirate radio station the same one her mom founded, years before she passed away Andie learns that not all the best laid plans are necessarily the right ones.

When a smart-mouthed junior joins East Nashville High’s basketball team, Coach Julie Parker’s ready for the challenge.

But despite being completely tongue-tied around her, somehow Julie persuades Elle to step in as her assistant coach.

Elle has not been on a court since her career-ending injury, but she can’t seem to resist Julie, who is just as adorable as her nervous babbling. Maybe because being around her makes Elle feel sparks for the first time in long while which is why she offers to help when Julie reveals her lifelong insecurity about dating and how she wishes she could practice at it… like sports. As Elle helps Julie navigate dating life, lines grow increasingly blurred, and the two must decide whether they’ll stay on the sidelines or finally take their shot.
