Blog Tour: Crash


___________

- The Book -

Synopsis: Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.
Jude's everything she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart.

- My Playlist -

1) Mumford and Sons - Little Lion Man
(A Jude song)

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time. Didn't I, my dear?



2) Evanescence - Going Under
(Jude and Lucy song)

So I can't trust myself anymore I'm dying again,
I'm going under Drowning in you, I'm falling forever.


3) Red - Never Be The Same
(A Jude and Lucy song)
I'd put all these lyrics if I could... they're all perfect.

You're the only voice my heart can recognize

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories,
the promises are yesterdays and I belong to you.
I just can't walk away 'cause after loving you I can never be the same.


4) Underoath - Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape
(A Lucy and Jude song)

Oh sweet angel of mercy with your grace like the morning
Wrap your loving arms around me.

Hey unfaithful I will teach you To be stronger, to be stronger.


5) Kanye West - Welcome To Heartbreak
(A Jude song - the sound of it just sounds like him to me)

Look back on my life and my life gone
Where did I go wrong?
And my head keeps spinning
Can't stop having these visions I gotta get wit' it.


6) Jag Star - I Don't Wanna Be Here
(A Jude Song)

You can stop lookin' at me that way
I'm pretty happy alone anyway
I don't need you to justify my life
And why I'm livin'

Next time I scream in the mirror
At least I'll see things clearer
I can only blame one person
For the mess that's been made

I will stand tall and through it all
I won't be too afraid to fall
And I'll try to leave you a glimmer
Of the hope that I'm feelin'

'Cause I, I don't wanna be here.


7) Underoath - A Boy Brushed Red... Living In Black And White
(A Jude and Lucy song)

Can you feel your heartbeat racing?
Can you taste the fear in her sweat?
You've done this wrong
It's too far gone
These sheets tell of regret
I admit that I'm just a fool for you
I am just a fool for you

Here is where we both go wrong
Tonight's your last chance to
Do exactly what you want to
And this could be my night
This is what makes me feel alive
Makes you feel alive

Here is where we both go wrong
So sign me up
And toss this key
'Cause for now we're
Living in this moment
And we both ignore the truth
Its all over

I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes

Your lungs have failed and they both stopped breathing
My heart is dead and its way past beating
Something has gone terribly wrong
I'm scared, you're scared, we're scared of this
I never thought we'd make it out alive
I never told you but its all in your goodbyes


8) Skillet - Rebirthing
(A Jude song)
One of my favorite songs, ever.

Rebirthing now
I wanna live for love wanna live for you and me
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow
Rebirthing now
I Wanna live my life wanna give you everything
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow


9) My Favorite Highway - You're Making It All Come Alive
(A Lucy song)

You can't disguise a heart while it's breaking
You hide behind the smile you're faking
It's all about the the chance you're taking
Oh, and you know that you're making it all come alive


10) Brand New - No Seatbelt Song
(A Jude song)

So take me and break me and make me strong like you.
I'll be forever grateful to this and you.
It's only you, beautiful.
Or I don't want anyone.
If I can choose it's only you.



I'm sure I could find WAAAAYYYYYY more songs that fit this book. But, these were the first ten I heard that I thought fit. Enjoy :)

- My Review -

This book stole my soul. Honestly, I have no desire to even pick up another book at this moment because I want Crash to stay with me for as long as possible. This book is the emotional roller coaster we all live and breathe for. The book that breaks your heart and then glues it back together. The book that we all want to come alive and be our own personal fairy tale. I loved this book from the very opening line to the final words and I can't get enough of it.
