Musical Theatre Song Book Tag

I recently did a tag called musical theatre book tag. What if I still did that theme, but instead focus on the songs and apply them to books. Yes, it might include some musical sequels.I think I will try that today. I will try to answer some of them.


On My Own (A book where a character deals with unrequited love): Hunchback of Notre Dame. If you think about it, this book is a love square. However when it comes to unrequited love, Quasimodo is the first character that comes to mind. Crazy how it was a character from another Hugo book

As Long as Your’e Mine (an unexpected couple): Levin and Kitty- just to let you know, they are from a book I am not the biggest fan of

For Good (the most unlikely friendship): Probably Kell and Lila

Seize the Day (a book where characters stand up for what they believe in): Les Misérables

Whole New World (a couple or friendship that feels magical): Emily, Adriane, and Kara. Literally, any friendship or couple in a fantasy series or standalone feels magical. These are the girls in the Avalon series

Oklahoma (one of your favorite book locations): Narnia

The Next Right Thing (a book where the main character does the right thing): Lord of the Rings

Mamma Mia (a feel good book): While dark at times, Harry Potter is still a feel good series

Try this out if you are a musical fan and bookworm

  1. Here are my answers:
    1) Hmm.. I’ll go with The Two Towers and The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien since Éowyn has a little bit of an unrequited love subplot going!
    2) I think I’ll go with Amy and Laurie from Little Women. When I first read the book, their relationship came as a complete shock to me.
    3) I was pretty shocked, but also pleasantly surprised when Horatia and Lady Louisa from Georgette Heyer’s The Convenient Marriage wound up having something of a friendship. It seemed unlikely at first, but I liked that Louisa warmed up to Horatia.
    4) I’ll go with A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel. Similar to Les Miz in that the group of main characters stands up for what they believe in through a revolution–though the French Revolution instead of the June Rebellion.
    5) I think I’ll say the friendship between Phoebe and Ted from Fire By Night by Lynn Austin for this one. Their friendship really warmed my heart, but also broke it at the same time.
    6) Particularly after having read the Silmarillion this summer, I really have fallen in love with Middle Earth all over again.
    7) Hmm… this is unexpectedly difficult for me to answer. I think I’ll maybe just go with Momo from Michael Ende’s Momo.
    8) For me, pretty much anything written by Georgette Heyer is a feel-good read. But the ones I return to the most are Friday’s Child and The Convenient Marriage.
