Just for Fun...Book and Music

While reading one of my latest reads this song kept playing while at work and everywhere.  And it reminded me of the book.

The lines: "Starships were meant to fly, Hands up and touch the sky" in the song reminded me of Jax desire to fly and the aching to get into grimspace again.  Just seemed to fit in my mind for those lines.

The book:
Endgame
By: Ann Aguirre
Regret nothing. 

Sirantha Jax has the J-gene, which permits her to “jump” faster-than-light ships through grimspace. She loves nothing more than that rush, but the star roads have to wait…

Her final mission takes her to La’heng, a planet subjugated during first contact. Since then, the La’hengrin homeworld has been occupied by foreign conquerors.

All that’s about to change.

Now, as part of a grassroots resistance, Jax means to liberate the La’hengrin. But political intrigue and guerrilla warfare are new to her, and this will be the most dangerous game she’s ever played—spies and conspiracies, a war of weapons and hearts, and not everyone is guaranteed to make it out alive...

No, I'm not a fan of the artist, but the song is okay, and this one really clicked with me.

The Song:
Starships by Nicki Minaj (there is some explicit here, sorry I couldn't find another version)

  2. One Christmas, I received Jann Arden's Insensitive Album (on cassette tape) and the Lord of the Rings set. Now whenever I hear a Jann Arden song, I'm reminded of LoTR.

    This is a fun segment! I always have a soundtrack when I'm writing, and it's fun to see that readers do too. :)
