Any books that are YA and involves music?
« on: January 29, 2012, 07:20 PM »
I want to read those kind of books. Or or example, the guy is an actor, then she met a girl whose just ordinary or something like that? Or anything that involves music in it like Boy bands or stuff. Thanks.

Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens is an excellent novel about a "rock god" and the main character is a student and waitress......Excellent book

Why don't you try:

Five Flavors of Dumb
Harmonic Feedback
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
If I Stay and Where She Went
(I loved all of these so these are the only ones that come to mind at the moment)

Also, why don't you check out these:

When I look for books on a specific topic, I find that there's almost always a list for it on Goodreads.
I hope this helped :)
It really helped! Thank you so much. I'll put them on my TO-READ list. :D
Good Day!

Hi,
I loved Rock and a hard place by Angie Stanton.
One day while watching the Interstate exit for her dad’s long awaited return, Libby’s life is rocked when Peter Jamieson steps off his tour bus and into her life. After a couple chance meetings with Peter, Libby breaks away from her rule abiding behavior and her life changes course. Peter longs for normalcy away from the screaming fans who know nothing about the real him. He is amazed to discover Libby has never heard of him or his band. Soon their friendship turns to love. While Peter battles his family's growing interference so he can spend time with Libby, she struggles with her eccentric aunt who turns more bizarre each day. Their lives are torn apart when Peter's family intrudes and Libby disappears. Peter’s desperate search for her comes up empty. Can they find their way back to each other while the world plots against them?

Virtuosity - Jessica Martinez

Now is not the time for Carmen to fall in love. And Jeremy is hands-down the wrong guy for her to fall for. He is infuriating, arrogant, and the only person who can stand in the way of Carmen getting the one thing she wants most: to win the prestigious Guarneri competition. Carmen's whole life is violin, and until she met Jeremy, her whole focus was winning. But what if Jeremy isn't just hot...what if Jeremy is better?
Carmen knows that kissing Jeremy can't end well, but she just can't stay away. Nobody else understands her--and riles her up--like he does. Still, she can't trust him with her biggest secret: She is so desperate to win she takes anti-anxiety drugs to perform, and what started as an easy fix has become a hungry addiction. Carmen is sick of not feeling anything on stage and even more sick of always doing what she’s told, doing what's expected.
Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice… but because you are nice

Struts & Frets by Jon Skovron is a great read.
Lemonade Mouth by Peter mark Hughes is also good!
I'm going starting Amplified by Tara Kelly after the current book I'm reading so I can't say it's good but it is a YA book to do with music!  :D

I just remembered one! It's 'The Girl Who Got to Number One' By Annalena McAfee, about a girl who got sucked into the life of a popstar and all the things that happened to her afterwards. I think it's Middle Grade but a very good read nonetheless.

It was a favourite of me and my friends in school.

Edit: I checked and it is YA. Just goes to show how different the classification thing works nowadays :P

Wake by Abria Mattina contains loads of music recs. It's a common factor between the hero who has cancer(in remission actually) and the heroine who's sister dies from cancer. It's an amazing book btw. There is a HEA too.
