Playlist Teaser & ARC Giveaway of A.G. Howard’s UNHINGED
UPDATE: A.G. HOWARD IS COMING BACK TO ATWN ON WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 3RD, 2014 WITH AN ALL NEW GIVEAWAY AND POST!
We are thrilled to have A.G. Howard, author of the critically acclaimed SPLINTERED, join us to give us a teaser of what she listened to while she wrote it’s highly anticipated sequel , UNHINGED. Anita not only gives us insight into the importance of each song, but she’s also giving all of our followers an opportunity to win a signed ARC of UNHINGED! Let’s get to the music!
Butterfly Caught by Massive Attack: Dark, brooding, and unsettling, this song gave life to the scene when Morpheus drags Alyssa into a decomposing Wonderland. I could close my eyes and envision the storm overhead and the terrain crumbling all around, then Morpheus’s seductive voice beneath the chaos.
Alyssa’s song to Morpheus, because she just can’t put a finger on what he’s up to from one minute to the next, and whether he’s being sincere or manipulative. Odds are, since it’s Morpheus, he’s being both simultaneously.
The female vocals and powerful electric guitars set the tone for a defining moment in the book when Alyssa embraces Wonderland’s madness in her blood and unleashes pandemonium.
This song’s lyrics represent Alyssa’s rocky relationship with her mom, and how she wishes they could erase the mistakes of the past and move forward with a normal future.
I Feel You by Depeche Mode: This hypnotic Throb Mix paired with Martin Gore’s suggestive lyrics inspired a scene where Alyssa and Jeb are seduced by Wonderland’s power and act outside of their usual human inhibitions.
I know! What a great mix! BTW You can listen to the entire Teaser Playlist over at our YouTube Channel.
