      I am all about music, YA, and anthologies so BEHIND THE SONG was sure to be a hit for me This incredible anthology hit it out of the park A few reasons I loved Behind the Song and I think you will, too Each author is at their complete best I ve read or interacted with most of the authors though not the musicians so I have a sense of their personality and these stories just have so much heart Their stories were so their own that I couldn t help but smile I especially appreciated Ellen Hopkins sto [...]

      Full video review here I was so excited to pick up Behind the Song but found myself disappointed with most of the short stories I was expecting this anthology to not only have essays and short stories inspired by certain songs but that the theme in the stories itself would be music too and because that wasn t the case, I felt very underwhelmed by this overall.I found a lot of the short stories to be super absurd and weird I wasn t expecting to get such a range of different stories without any co [...]

      I m giving this 3 stars only because the editing was so terrible and I had to regularly try to decipher words, hoping the finished copy is cleaner Otherwise, 4 stars.What a great anthology The idea behind this anthology was music Do you ever hear a song and picture the story the music is telling Well this is an entire book of just that, short stories describing the songs It features many, many authors and just as many musicians Some stories are personal experiences looking at you G Love while so [...]

      Hey guys, I m one of the contributors to this book My story is a dark little Tales From the Dark Side style thriller, and I thought I d post this essay about its unusual sources of inspiration How The Killers Miss Atomic Bomb inspired an apocalyptic storyThe book s editor, K.M Walton, came up with the concept of crafting an original story that was based in some way on a piece of music, and I thought it was an exciting and creative way to get some words on the page.If you liked the book, or are j [...]

      Behind the Song is a Young Adult anthology of short stories inspired by music There are fourteen stories in all, and while most of them are fictional, there are a couple that are nonfictional I love creating my own personal soundtracks for favorite books, or even for my own writing playlists, so I was very excited about reading Behind the Song and listening to the different songs that inspire other writers.For the first twelve stories, I read the story after listening to the song that inspired i [...]

      I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review 3.5 starsI always request anthologies assuming I m going to love them, but I usually don t I specifically requested this one because I love music, yet there were so many songs here I didn t know, but for someone dedicated, I am sure that might be a good thing since they can explore new music I was so SHOCKED to read a story inspired by 2NE1 That was the highlight for me although the tears that welled up threatened to fall wi [...]

      I was provided an e galley of this novel from the publisher through Netgalley.One of my favorite things to do when I m reading a book is find out if it has a playlist, or if it doesn t, make one of my own So when I read the synopsis of Behind the Song, I wanted to read it so bad This little collection of stories has a perfect mix of fun, heartfelt, and magical tales And while there are some stories I enjoyed than others Suburbiana, You Know Something s Happening Here, The Ride, and Doomed , the [...]

      I LOVED THIS BOOK I only wanted to read this book because of one of the fourteen authors, David Arnold I loved his other two books so much that I was excited to read anything by him, even if it was a short story Thankfully, the other authors were just as good All of these stories had a specific song connected to it Whether, the story was about how a song was written, how a song inspired them to write the story, or as simple as the song being mentioned in the story, these were so much fun Also, b [...]

    9. Amanda says:
      This was, unfortunately, a mess The few good parts read like first drafts of better stories and the worst parts were just incoherent The idea was fantastic, having authors write stories and essays based on a particular song of their choosing I love that But it felt like while teens were the target audience, several of the authors missed that mark Overall, 2 stars because the idea behind the collection is great But it needs some major editing, both in form and substance.

    10. Merry says:
      What an awesome Idea to pair music with short stories We all feel creative when we connect to our favorite music So why not write down the stories that the music leads us to This is exactly what an amazing group of YA authors and musicians have done Starting a new story was like moving through your favorite song playlist on a lazy summer afternoon.

    11. Danielle says:
      A series of short stories and essays written by young adult authors and inspired by songs they love or at least have very specific attachments to Mostly I really enjoyed the sort of memoirish essays in which the authors talked about what certain songs meant to them at certain points in their lives The short stories were a lot hit and miss for me.

    12. Alexis Stankewitz says:
      I wasn t familiar with some of the songs,but this collection was extremely interesting to me,both as an avid reader and an avid music fan I especially loved the story City Girl by E.C Myers I would love if he expanded on the story to make it novel length,if not a trilogy A definitely interesting collection.

    13. JoEllen says:
      BehindtheSong is a must have mentor text that will inspire MS HS readers writers Songs interpreted as short stories personal essays Music is the soundtrack of our lives a zip file of culture, ideas, and free thought

    14. Anna says:
      There are some absolutely stunning pieces in here while others don t quite work well There s an art to short stories that is different from the art of novel creation, and some of these don t measure up.

    15. Olivia says:
      An enjoyable book, some of the stories I enjoyed than others, and the fact that I didn t know many songs referenced made it a little difficult, but I definitely learnt about a lot of artists, songs and authors and that made the book a good read.


    16. Kaitlin Kline says:
      I didn t like this anthology as much as I thought I would A few of the stories were very good, but I was mostly underwhelmed.
