If You Like This Song, Read This Book: Taylor Swift Songs as Book Recommendations

In the past decade, Taylor Swift has made us fall in and out (and then in again) of love with her exceptional songwriting. She has been a celebrated icon: one who crushes your heart into little tiny pieces, only to mend it back together again. The singer-songwriter’s music has been a timeless aid–from the time when you found your Romeo (Siri play Love Story - Taylor’s Version) to when you lose what you thought was “The One” (Alexa play All Too Well - Taylor’s Version), all the way to finding your way back to yourself again.

This love month, we are never ever… not getting a Taylor Swift collection. Check out these book recommendations as Taylor Swift songs every Swiftie needs to read!

All Too Well: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover’s It Ends With Us follows the story of Lily, who lost her first love Atlas and is now settled with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle. But when Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

What do All Too Well (10-minute version) and It Ends With Us have in common? Both tell that sometimes, it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most. Yup, there’s nothing more heartbreaking than a Tay Tay-CoHo tandem. Grab some tissues because tears will be flowing like a waterfall! 

Illicit Affairs: Normal People by Sally Rooney

Normal People is Sally Rooney’s second novel. It is a story of mutual fascination, love, and friendship. It follows two deeply damaged people who develop an intense relationship that is beyond the norms—from their first conversation to the years beyond.

Relationship status: It’s complicated. Pair Taylor’s Illicit Affairs with Normal People and trust us, it is bound to get really, really complicated.

Invisible String: Beach Read by Emily Henry

Beach Read is a light and meet-cute read about two struggling authors, Augustus and January, who are both spending the summer writing and falling in love in a quaint beach town.

In the 16-track album Folklore, Taylor writes breakup tunes but also spares some love songs for Joe Alwyn, her boyfriend of more than three years. Invisible String is a song that is centered on an invisible “thread of gold” that connects two soulmates and ushers them together in life–the perfect song to play on your speakers while reading Emily Henry’s Beach Read.

The Lucky One: Shine by Jessica Jung

A novel about chasing one’s dream, Shine is centered on 17-year-old Korean American who would give everything to be part of the competitive, technicolor world of K-pop. But as the dark scandals of an industry bent on controlling and commodifying beautiful girls begin to bubble up, Rachel wonders if she’s strong enough to be a winner… Especially when she begins to develop feelings for K-pop star and DB golden boy Jason Lee.

In Taylor’s album Red, she talks about some of her fears through telling the stories of other people she was inspired by. Just like Jessica Jung’s Shine, The Lucky One is a song inspired by people who have figured out how to enjoy life more despite all the fame and glamor. 

Ronan: Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott

Stella and Will are two different people who share the same illness. In this moving story about friendship and possibilities, they fall in love… But with just one minor complication—they can’t get within five feet of each other without risking their lives.

Taylor was inspired to write the song Ronan after reading a blog called Rockstar Ronan written by Ronan’s mother. It’s a ballad about the three-year-old boy who sadly passed away in May 2011 after a battle with neuroblastoma, a type of cancer. Both Five Feet Apart and Ronan remind us that even in the most painful moments, we can find peace and hope.

Red: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

In The Hating Game, ebut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.

Similarly to Taylor’s Red, this book is about some things that are hard to forget–intense emotions and memories that will inevitably stay with you.

Calm Down: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life.  From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love.

Just like The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Taylor’s song Calm Down is poppy and infectious: a song about taking a stand, criticizing haters and homophobes alike. 

Everything Has Changed: Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi

Debut author Mary H.K. Choi writes a compulsively readable novel that shows young love in all its awkward glory in Emergency Contact. The book is a love story conducted primarily by text message, with Penny, a Korean-American freshman at the University of Texas at Austin, giving Sam her number after she happens to be passing by as Sam has his first panic attack.

If you are into this meet-cute story then there is no reason for you not to blast off Everything Has Changed on your earphones–a song about exploring love, maybe for the first time.

This Is Me Trying: Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six is a gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up. 

While Daisy Jones & The Six is a remarkable story about love, loss, and the struggles of addiction, Taylor’s This Is Me Trying is centered on admitting one’s flaws and mistakes and the act of reconciliation. A Taylor Jenkins Reid book and a Taylor Swift song? It’s definitely the perfect combination.
