The Ultimate Book Track Match for Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)
It’s TAYLOR SWIFT ALBUM TIME!! Some of our most beloved T-Swift tracks are here, and it’s Taylor’s Version (and yes, we’ve got the vault tracks). Scroll down for your perfect album match up to your favorite and soon-to-be favorite YA books.
We gotta kick off this book track match the best way we know how: with books that will tear your heart apart as much as this song did.
Mine is a summer vibes CLASSIC–and it deserves two of our own favorite summery classics to match!
The will-they-or-won’t-they is real with this one. And these authors know it!
Back to December is arguably a Swiftie fan favorite, and we think these reads capture the themes regret and longing all too well. (…too soon??)
Don’t blame us if you find yourself screaming “YOU’RE WITH THE WRONG ONE!!!” at these characters.
Confusion, longing, loss, and anger–these books capture the pain of mourning an unhealthy relationship, even if you see it all more clearly in hindsight.
This song pulls no punches, and tells it like it is. And so do these books!
Things with exes can get COMPLICATED…and don’t these characters know it! (Looking at you, Dimitri!)
Nostalgia and childhood memories are big with this one, and these YA books full of heart fit perfectly.
It only seemed right to pair this beloved tune to two equally sparkling fantasies full of wonder and romance!
Bring in the murder mysteries! These YA thrillers are FULL of revenge to read while you listen.
Growing up and into the person you were meant to be is terrifying. Follow Koffi from Beasts of Prey and Ross from Thieves’ Gambit as they follow their own destiny, and learn to leave everything they once knew behind.
The finales of these gripping reads have the same energy of all of us shrieking when Taylor started playing this one live at the Eras Tour.
Talk about an epic love story. Whether you’re looking for real dragons to fight, or metaphorical ones, we’ve got you covered!
Taylor Swift often reminds us love isn’t easy, but it’s worth it! And these romance reads match the “why is there always SOMETHING in the way?!” energy to a tee.
We can think of a character or two who matches THAT description!
Electric Touch is the first track from the vault for Speak Now, and we’re OBSESSED. We think Lola in Viva Lola Espinoza and Matilda in Nightbirds know exactly how it feels to be scared of the risk of falling in love.
We might start singing When Emma Falls in Love as When Ana Falls in Love! Ana from The Fountains of Silence would definitely understand Emma. Meanwhile, Grey from House of Hollow fits the mysterious It Girl vibe perfectly—everyone wishes they could love her…and Tyler was NOT the same after he did!
IT’S GIVING SECRET ROMANCE. If you love listening to slow-burn love stories between characters who keep their romance quiet, we think you’ll love reading it too!
Castles Crumbling paints an EPIC and heartbreaking picture of a falling empire. If you’re ready to watch a ruler’s kingdom crumble, we recommend these intense and royal reads!
Taylor’s out here reminding us not to fall in love with someone giving you mixed signals (or just bluntly breaking your heart)! But, of course, everyone learns the hard way—especially these characters.
Timeless deserves two equally romantic reads about finding each other across timelines, and two people who will find each other no matter what lifetime they’re living.
