Harry Styles’s FINE LINE is here and we’ve got your ultimate track match!


IT’S FINALLY HERE! Harry dropped the album. And you bet we’ve had it on repeat ever since. And guess what? WE’RE READY.

It’s time for your ultimate Harry Styles FINE LINE Album YA Book Track Match!




Track 1: Golden

Book Match: A Reaper at the Gates

*spoilers on this one* Well, if this just doesn’t make you think of Laia and the boy formally known as Elias… or really them coming to grips with the fact that this whole relationship thing they have going on might not work in their favor because, you know, Elias is now the Soul Catcher and all of that. Lyrics like “I don’t want to be alone when it ends. Don’t wanna let you know.” get us right in the heart.



Track 2: Watermelon Sugar

Book Match: Isla and the Happily Ever After

Watermelon Sugar is the summer love anthem we needed… just in December. Lyrics like “I don’t know if I could ever go without” makes us immediately think of the swoon-worthy romance between Isla and Josh. Isla was smitten the first time she saw Josh, and tbh, we were too.




Track 3: Adore You

Book Match: The Fountains of Silence

The lines that get us in Harry’s newest single Adore You? “I’d walk through fire for you. Just let me adore you.” Reminds us a whole lot of a certain love story between Daniel and Ana set in 1950s Spain with a backdrop of the militaristic Franco regime. Excuse us while we listen to this song on repeat while we reread The Fountains of Silence.

Track 4: Lights Up

Book Match: Darius the Great Is Not Okay

The first single off Harry’s album makes us immediately think of Adib Khorram’s coming-of-age novel about finding yourself and being okay with that. Here’s hoping that Darius is seen listening to this song in the follow up Darius the Great Deserves Better.



Track 5: Cherry

Book Match: Where She Went

It’s fine. We’re just imagining Adam writing this song for Mia. Adam is the emo boy of our hearts that really needs to get himself together, but can’t seem to. Harry can relate as he processes his break up feelings through this song.



Track 6: Falling

Book Match: Fireborne

Realizing you hurt one of your best friends and the person you wish you could be MORE than friends with? Yeah, bummer. Falling gives us those vibes and has us crying into our copy of Fireborne. The only thing this song is lacking? Dragons. But it can’t have everything.



Track 7: To Be So Lonely

Book Match: Our Chemical Hearts

“Don’t blame me for falling” To Be So Lonely has that hopeless edge to them that makes us think of Grace and Henry. Grace is broken in a way that Henry desperately wants to fix, but he has no idea where to start. He does know that he’s falling in love with her. Yeah, this isn’t going to end well…



Track 8: She

Book Match: Song of the Crimson Flower

“She lives in daydreams with me, and I don’t know why” Bao visits Lan’s window every night and plays a song on the flute especially for her. Unfortunately, Lan thinks it’s someone else and when she finds out it’s actually Bao, she’s not impressed. Is this the song that Bao wrote about Lan? Probably. Should you read this if you love fantasy stories about darkness and love? Definitely.



Track 9: Sunflower, Vol. 6

Book Match: The Beautiful

There’s something about Celine that Bastien just cannot resist. And there’s something we can’t resist about Bastien. Sunflower, Vol. 6 is a reminiscing love song, but also can definitely be seen as an infatuation-at-first-sight song. Whatever it is, we love it and Celine and Bastien.



Track 10: Canyon Moon

Book Match: Rebel of the Sands

Canyon Moon is all about wanting to get back to that place where you felt the best or the most alive, just like Amani and Jin’s time in the desert. When they’re not together or fighting the various evils they come across, they are always thinking about each other and the time they spent together. *heart-eyed emoji*



Track 11: Treat People with Kindness

Book Match: If I’m Being Honest

“Maybe, we can find a place to feel good and we can treat people with kindness” Let’s just say that Cameron can be a bit… difficult. She’s honest to a fault, but not everyone loves that about her. In order to win over her crush that she made things super awkward with, she decides to go on an apology tour. One thing leads to another and she reconnects with Brendan and learns to treat people with kindness just a little bit.



Track 12: Fine Line

Book Match: Frankly in Love

Love isn’t easy and Harry Styles’ title track Fine Line proves that. Frank Li’s love life is complicated. He’s in love with a white girl, but his parents want him to date a Korean girl. So, he fake dates a Korean girl so he can for real date the white girl. But then things get… even more complicated.
