Final DREAMLESS ARC Giveaway!

Is this mike on?  *tap tap*

Hidy-ho, StarHearts!  I know I’ve been MIA, but I have such a good excuse.  I’ve been out meeting some of you!  I took my show on the road there for a bit.  Most recently I was in Ontario, California for a way-more-fun-than-is-healthy-for-stay-at-home-writers panel with Jay Asher, Alexandra Monir, and Anna Carey.  (For like 5 minutes Tahereh Mafi was there as well but she had to judge a spelling bee so she couldn’t stay.  It was great to meet her, though, even if she couldn’t hang for long.)

And the fun doesn’t stop there.  I’ll be in Nantucket June 15-17.  I’ll be there for the Nantucket Book Festival, pimping some hardbacks.  (Oooh that sounds way dirtier than I thought it would!)  There are more appearances being worked out and will post them on my website as soon as I get all the details.

Anyway!  The whole point of this rambling, half-incoherent post is that I’ve been wicked busy.  But that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about you.

I’m giving away the last of my ARC’s before the book comes out.  3 of them!  We’re going to have ourselves a regular bonanza!  And of course, I have a doozy of a question for you.

Q: If you had to pick a theme song for the STARCROSSED series, which one would it be?

Be sure and leave me your answer as a comment.

The 3 winners will receive a signed ARC of DREAMLESS

… along with signed DREAMLESS bookplates.

In order to enter the giveaway simply do the following:

The deadline to enter is Friday, May 25th.  The winner will be announced on Saturday, May 27th.

Thank you and good luck to all!! :)




  1. Claudia Garcia says:

    Jason Mraz – I won’t give up

  2. Esmeralda says:

    Hmmm…probably ‘Too lost in you’ by Sugababes, or ‘I hate everything about you’ (for beginnning od Starcrossed), by three days grace.

  3. Alyssa Susanna says:

    I think “Up Where We Belong” by Joe Crocker and Jennifer Warnes is a nice song :D
    Thanks for one more!!!!
    Alyssa Susanna

  4. Emily Lawson says:

    Rihanna- We found love, I think the lyrics match the series:)

  5. Christin says:

    “Come what may” by Ewan McGregor & Nicole Kidman :D

    • Katherina Barney says:

      I freakin’ LOVE that movie!!!!!!! That’s the movie that made me fall in love with Ewan McGregor!!

  6. Becky Louise Williams says:

    DemiGoddess – Where do I belong.
    It was thanks to you I discovered this song, it is perfect for the book series because the end of starcrossed when there’s where she has that sheer hate for Lucas, then how they grow close and how she doesn’t know her origin’s… The song is just perfect for starcrossed! x

  7. I think your theme song could be “Take My breadth away” by BERLIN

  8. Hmm…something by Something Corporate, I think. “Hurricane”, maybe? It’s got a great angsty sound, and the weather-related lyrics make me think of the Scions and their powers.

  9. Desiree Hernandez says:

    If you had to pick a theme song for the Starcrossed series which one would it be? The new Jason Mraz son “I won’t give up.” Perfect to describe the love between Lucas and Helen! It is now my new favorite song.

    • Desiree Hernandez says:

      Here are the lyrics (all rights reserved, all credits to the writers, etc):
      When I look into your eyes
      It’s like watching the night sky
      Or a beautiful sunrise
      There’s so much they hold
      And just like them old stars
      I see that you’ve come so far
      To be right where you are
      How old is your soul?

      I won’t give up on us
      Even if the skies get rough
      I’m giving you all my love
      I’m still looking up

      And when you’re needing your space
      To do some navigating
      I’ll be here patiently waiting
      To see what you find

      ‘Cause even the stars they burn
      Some even fall to the earth
      We’ve got a lot to learn
      God knows we’re worth it
      No, I won’t give up

      I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
      I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
      Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
      The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
      And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
      For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
      We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
      I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not
      And who I am

      I won’t give up on us
      Even if the skies get rough
      I’m giving you all my love
      I’m still looking up
      Still looking up.

      I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
      God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
      We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
      God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

      I won’t give up on us
      Even if the skies get rough
      I’m giving you all my love
      I’m still looking up

  10. Alessandra Garau says:

    I don’t kwon maybe Starcrossed by Ash, but it seem too obvoius.
    All about us- TaTu. and obviously Where do i Belog of DemiGoddess

  11. Katrina says:

    battlefield jordin sparks :)

  12. Alessandra Garau says:

    Josie, can you speak Italian?

  13. I like the Rihanna “We Found Love” answer that someone wrote below. :)

  14. Well, since I haven’t read the entire series yet…I think right now I would choose Kiss with a Fist by Florence and the Machine. It really embodies the hate that Helen and Lucas feel at the beginning of the book!

  15. Maddison Nicole Page says:

    Plan B – end credits
    its not an obvious choice but its a really good song and as much as I love a soppy romantic song but its a really good track and I think it would be a good song choice.

  16. I’d go for Rhianna – We Found Love but the cover version by Sam Tsui because I like that version better (: it’s softer and more heartfelt, that’s it. Just personal preference really (:

    • Cassandra Armstrong says:

      I love this version better than Rhianna’s version. Thanks for sharing even though i’m addicted now

  17. While I was reading Starcrossed, Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum kept coming on. And I thought it was perfect! Here’s a link if you’d like a listen –

  18. idk maybe Joe Cocker – Up where we belong?

  19. grazie per il GA

  20. Stephanie T says:

    Q: If you had to pick a theme song for the STARCROSSED series, which one would it be?

    I would have to choose “Warmness on the Soul” by Avenged Sevenfold :)

  21. Nightwish Nemo I love this song

  22. Roxanne Kade says:

    I have such an obsession with The Civil Wars, I think their song Poison & Wine is so beautiful, so I’d choose it for the Starcrossed theme song :)

    Thank you for another chance to win an ARC!

  23. Dani Nguyen says:

    I think Starcrossed by Ash is an obvious choice, right? Decent song too. Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. Guaranteed “As Long As You’re There” by the Glee Cast. It’s one of their original songs, actually sung by Charice, the amazing singer from the Philippines. It’s just the perfect song.

  25. Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum

  26. Natalie Anna says:

    Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol.

    *please let me win, please let me win* :D

  27. I like Joe Cocker – Up where we belong

  28. Hmmm this is a hard one, very hard gosh. I think I will go with Stay with me from Danity Kane, its a love song about staying with your loved one cause you’ve build or started building your world around him/her.
    its amazing and my fav. danity kane song ever.

  29. Natalie Cleary says:

    Id pick Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn – Starcrossed Lovers, thanks for the chance.

  30. OH jeez.. I literally sat here and tried to come up with one and I couldn’t. Hmph.
    I am really excited that you’ll be in Nantucket next month.. I’m going to try and go but it’s a pain and the butt to get there.. plus I don’t like boats so the ferry may be a problem.. but we shall see. Thanks for the giveaway!

  31. Damien Rice Delicate… wonderful song… <3 him

  32. Forgiven not forgotten by The Corrs. It’s such a sweet sad song. Like Helen and Lucas, sad because of the ending but sweet because of the time they spent together.

  33. I don’t know about the whole series, but “Fire and Ice” by Within Temptation really reminds me of Starcrossed.

  34. Julie McAninch says:

    The theme song for Starcrossed would be… “”The Space Between” by Dave Matthews Band”

  35. Michelle says:

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway! Your books definitely inspire me :)

  36. This question is easy! I’m absolutely rubbish at choosing theme songs! So, simply… I haven’t the slightest idea lol
    Does it count as an answer? ;)

  37. Nikki Oz says:

    My Heart Still Beats for You, Anna Ternheim. She is an amazing Swede singer and this song is about strong, true and tested love. I think it is so fitting for this book series! Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. Michelle says:

    & I would be the Fates! They really are fascinating :)

  39. katie morgan says:

    Fallen by Sarah McLachlan

  43. “Enchanted” by Taylor Swift

  44. kimberly kosydor says:

    “I won’t give up”- Jason Mraz<3

    Thank you so muxh for the giveaway! :D

  49. Jennifer says:

    ‘Follow Your Down’ by The Twilight Singers

  50. I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz
    I’m heavily obsessing over this song and its lyrics are like written for Starcrossed

  51. Annabelle Law says:

    Definately Lover to Lover or All this and Heaven too by Florence and the Machine

  52. Laura F says:

    Hmmm this is a really hard question. I trawled through my music collection & I’ll probably go for this from the UK :-) :
    Don’t Be Afraid by Wretch 32 (Ft Delilah)

  53. Kaitlin E says:

    “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz

  54. hiba008 says:

    Only Hope- Switchfoot :)

  55. We found love- Rhianna

  56. I should pick Kiss me Slowly by Parachute. I’m so obsessed with this band and if you see, the lyrics is so romantic… Definitely, this song is the best one.

  57. Would have to be Always Know Where You Are by John Rzenik

  58. Josephine says:

    first i want to say; hey we have the same name!
    but my song choice has to be either
    ‘nobody does it better’ by carly simon
    or ‘a thousand years’ by christina perri
    although they don’t show how they feel at the beginning of the book but more the end, i love these songs

  59. susan harris says:

    my song choice would be paramore breathe ( until tomorrow)….. it kinda sums up the feeling of wanting to be with someone but it seems impossible…. thanx for the giveaway!!

  60. devinne p says:

    I think the song Fractions by Emery would be perfect it talks about in the beginning how they disagree and then they just love each other. listen to it if you get a chance. :)

  61. Hi
    I would Chose the Song
    Someone like you
    Cause it is like Lucas saying it to Helen

  62. Mallory Oswald says:

    Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy <3

  63. Love is a Battlefield by Pat Benetar :)

  64. “We found Love” by Rihanna <3

  65. PauliinaOksanen says:

    Rihanna- We found love :)

  66. At first I didn’t know what song to pick, but after some thoughts I chose “Now that I found you” by Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald. I really love that song and I think it suits the Starcrossed series wonderful.

  67. Danielle says:

    Theme Song For Starcrossed:
    Dreamlife by Sleeping at Last

  68. Oh wow, honestly I have three maybe four songs that fit nicely, or that I listened to while reading the first book! And I think based on what I have read of the second book (the excerpt) should fit with the second book as well!

    Okay well I have two since I couldn’t choose!
    How much more – stars
    Coming apart – friends of Emmett

    Can’t wait for the second book!!

  69. Rhiannon says:

    So Close by Jon McLaughlin. The lyrics are the story of Helen and Lucas, star crossed lovers who are “so close” to finding happiness but Fate will not allow.

    You’re in my arms
    And all the world is calm
    The music playing on for only two
    So close together
    And when I’m with you
    So close to feeling alive

    A life goes by
    Romantic dreams will stop
    So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
    So close was waiting, waiting here with you
    And now forever I know
    All that I wanted to hold you
    So close

    So close to reaching that famous happy end
    Almost believing this was not pretend
    And now you’re beside me and look how far we’ve come
    So far we are so close

    How could I face the faceless days
    If I should lose you now?
    We’re so close
    To reaching that famous happy end
    And almost believing this was not pretend
    Let’s go on dreaming for we know we are
    So close
    So close
    And still so far

  70. Alannah Campbell says:

    “Enchanted” by Taylor Swift, “Beautiful eyes” Also by Taylor Swift (promise I don’t have an obsession with TS I just think they both go with the book. Especially the whole “make me fly…” lyric in “beautiful eyes”)
    “No light, No light” by Florence and the machine or “Over and Over” by Three Days Grace. I think the whole “Over and over, I fall for you” lyrics remind me about the whole Helen and Paris/Lucas cycle and in No light, no light the “No light, no light in your bright blue eyes” remind me of Lucas.
    *crosses fingers
    *Please let me win, please let me win!*

  71. Long Live by Taylor Swift

  72. I can’t remember who sings it, but it’s that song that has the stanza “We found love in a hopeless place”…and I think the song is even called “We found love”. :-)

  73. Sarah's Rolli says:

    So first, a german Song: Philipp Poisel – Ich und Du

    and know one in english: Lost in You – FM Static

    Thanks for the Giveaway

    StarLove ღ ♿

  74. “What a wonderful world” by Louis Armstrong

  75. I would go with Fallen by Sarah McLachlan.

  76. Calendar girl by stars fits really well too!! :)

  77. linda foster says:

    awesome giveawy!

  78. Amanda Tse says:

    Hmm I think “Come Home” by One Republic ft. Sara Bareilles would be a good choice.

  79. Jason Mraz – I Won’t Give Up

    YAY FOR ARCS! :)

  80. I like “Starry Eyed” by Ellie Goulding, and no, not because I, myself, am starry-eyed. :D Or maybe “The Lightning Strike” by Snow Patrol.

  81. Oh I have the perfect song : “If You’re Not The One” by Daniel Beddingfield. It totally explains Helen’s confusion and it is a gorgeous song, you have to go listen to it. The full lyrics:

    Just a sample:

    If you’re not the one, then why does my soul feel glad today?
    If you’re not the one, then why does my hand fit yours this way?
    If you are not mine, then why does your heart return my call?
    If you are not mine, would I have the strength to stand at all?

    . . .

    I don’t wanna run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
    If I’m not made for you, then why does my heart tell me that I am?
    Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

    Seriously the song is perfect. Please go itunes it or something. It’s always been a favorite of mine.

  82. A ton of people have already said this, but definitely I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz.

  83. I follow rivers-Lykke Li

  84. Tough question … but I’d probably go with “Never Let Me Go” by Florence & the Machine (or “My Heart is Broken” by Evanescence)


  85. I’m horrible with songs but I’ll go with Forever by Fireflight or Lift Me Up by The Benjamin Gate.

  86. I agree with most of the comments above – ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Miraz, is perfect.
    I also quite like ‘Need A Little Love’ by Miley Cyrus & Sheryl Crow.

    Here’s the lyrics:
    When the darkness leaves you lonely,
    Or the world tried to push you away
    When your sky is looking troubled
    You can count on me ’cause I’m gonna stay
    Put your worries in my pocket
    I’ve got a key so we can lock it
    I swear that, I won’t let them escape
    Love, it’s always worth it, love
    Everyone deserves it
    Its the friend that holds your hand
    When nobody understands
    Love, it wants to heal you, love
    And see the real you
    But you have to open up
    When you need a little love

    If there’s something you’re in need of (you’re in need of)
    You only have to let me know
    I’ve got a shoulder you can lean on
    & I’m always (always) right up the road
    Put your fears in my pocket
    I’ve got a key so we can lock it
    And no one (no one), won’t let them escape
    Love, it’s always worth it love,
    everyone deserves it
    Its the friend that holds your hand
    When nobody understands
    Love, it wants to heal you, love
    And see the real you
    But you have to open up
    When you need a little love

    Every night when your heart is praying for peace
    From a noise in your head, yeah
    There’s a light that is yours too keep
    And brighter than all the rest
    Love, it’s always worth it love
    Everyone deserves it
    Its the friend that holds your hand
    When nobody understands

    Love, it wants to heal you, love
    It sees the real you
    But you have to open up
    When you need a little love

    Fingers crossed I get picked. Desperate to have this book!

  87. Karen Butterfield says:

    I know that it was written for a film (Stardust) but I think Take That and Rule the World would be a great song for the series x

  88. I know it’s a way overused song but
    “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston
    is my idea of the ultimate starcrossed song.

  89. Lille Moss says:

    As I was listening to Got 2 Luv you by Sean Paul all the time while reading the book…well I’d pick this song. :)

  90. I haven’t read the series yet so I can’t pick a song for that… BUT it looks amazing, so I’ll pick one it reminds me of:

    I’m so excited, an I just can’t hide it!

    Don’t laugh… LoL

    Love your blog, and thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    Mandee @ compelledbywords.blogspot <3

  91. Can’t Let go by Landon Pigg

  92. I think it would be “Thinking about you by Frank Ocean or Heartbreak by Childish Gambino.

  93. Kira Moss says:

    Oh, I’m rubbish at choosing theme songs…but I’m gonna go with Starships by Nicki Minaj cuz I’m listening to it at the moment all day long…I know it doesn’t affect the story that much, but flying…

  94. Bridget Zacharias says:

    Love Story by Taylor Swift :)

  95. Laura Rennie says:

    My choice for a theme song would have to be Run by Leona Lewis .

  96. I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz! :)

  97. Stephanie Carrico says:

    IT WILL RAIN Bruno Mars
    How Lucas may feel without Helen
    may just apply to DREAMLESS but
    not the whole series…

  98. Danielle says:

    hmm i think enchanted, breathe & last kiss by taylor swift. i really like those songs and they remind me of starcrossed. but maybe have last kiss and breathe for the end of the book.

  99. I feel like Parachute by Ingrid Michaelson would be a great song for the series :D

  100. Samantha Foote says:

    The song I would put to “Starcrossed” is “Breathe” by Faith Hill. The music video holds so much of the dry desert that is how I pictured the Underworld in your book. Faith Hill tells a story of a girl in love with this guy and how she can’t be anything without him. It’s a perfect depiction of how Helen loves Lucas, and vice versa. When Helen and Lucas together there is so much magic and the end of the song and book leave a glimmer or hope for a bright future. That’s why I would put Faith Hill’s “Breathe” to your book “Starcrossed”.

    • Samantha Foote says:


      I can feel the magic floating in the air
      Being with you gets me that way
      I watch the sunlight dance across your face and I’ve
      Never been this swept away

      All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
      When I’m lying wrapped up in your arms
      The whole world just fades away
      The only thing I hear
      Is the beating of your heart

      ‘Cause I can feel you breathe
      It’s washing over me
      Suddenly I’m melting into you
      There’s nothing left to prove
      Baby all we need is just to be
      Caught up in the touch
      The slow and steady rush
      Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be
      I can feel you breathe
      Just breathe

      In a way I know my heart is waking up
      As all the walls come tumbling down
      I’m closer than I’ve ever felt before
      And I know
      And you know
      There’s no need for words right now

      ‘Cause I can feel you breathe
      It’s washing over me
      Suddenly I’m melting into you
      There’s nothing left to prove
      Baby all we need is just to be
      Caught up in the touch
      The slow and steady rush
      Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be
      I can feel you breathe
      Just breathe

      Caught up in the touch
      The slow and steady rush
      Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be
      I can feel you breathe
      Just breathe

      I can feel the magic floating in the air
      Being with you gets me that way

  101. Danielle Warhurst says:

    He Is We – Pardon Me

    Why, you ask?
    Because, it’s an awesome song.
    And, Starcrossed is an awesome book.
    Plus I think the song goes well with it, obviously. :)

  102. Thinking out Loud by Lesley Roy

  103. I took my time & FINALLY I GOT ONE that goes PERFECTLY with the story…
    Its…”I’LL HOLD MY BREATH” by ELLIE GOULDING! Her voice is so unique & YOU HAVE to HEAR the lyrics…they portray the story very well! Even if I don’t win, PLEASE, PLEASE LISTEN to it!!!

  104. Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol! :)

  105. Charlotte Roberts says:

    hello josie, hope your doing well

    i would say christina perri- distance its a lovely song, have a listen :-)xxx

  106. i forgot to write the song!” blood, tears and gold” by hurts

  107. I wish I had an answer!! Haven’t read the book but reading the summary how about “No Myth” by Michael Penn.

  108. I think that the theme song for Starcrossed should be “Requiem for a Dream” by Clint Mansell. The harsh violin and its beauty reminds me of the tragic love in the book. I think it would be appropriate.


  109. Aquarius by Within Temptation!

  110. I have no idea.. Anything super tragic and epic in a way! Thanks so much for the giveaway! :)

  111. The Patient by Tool

  112. I believe the best song for this series, especially the connection between Helen & Lucas, would be “Worth the Wait” by Jordin Sparks.

    I feel what I’ve been feeling for you
    Means I am falling for you
    Something’s opened up inside of me
    And I dream
    In shades that only can be
    The colors of you and me
    I think we both know what that means
    I stand inside this promise I made to myself
    That I was meant for you

    If I fall
    If I break
    If I lose myself in someone
    If I give all I am it’ll be with you
    When I’m ready to take
    All that you want me to give
    It will be worth the wait
    Worth the wait
    It will be worth the wait


    Worth all the long nights dreaming of forever
    Someday we will be together
    I know it will have been so worth the wait
    Please wait for me

    But, if I were to choose one, perhaps for end credits (to say, perhaps a TV series… *hint hint* LOL), that encompasses all the characters… I’d say “We Belong Together” by Gavin DeGraw.

    We belong together
    Like the open seas and shores
    Wedded by the planet force
    We’ve both been spoken for

    The hammer may strike, be dead on the ground
    A nail to my hand, a cross on his crown
    We’re done if we’re undone
    Finished if we are incomplete
    As one we are everything
    We are everything we need…

    Here’s to hoping… *crosses her fingers*…

    By the way, it was BEYOND AMAZING to FINALLY be able to meet you!!!! :) I wish I could have come earlier, but I’m glad I finally got the chance either way! :D

  113. I really like Rhianna’s We found love. I think that is a great one. I love Sara’s comment above for Chasing Cars too. That song is beautiful and I think it fits too.

  114. Makayla says:

    “Honey and the Moon” by Joseph Arthur.
    Key lines: “I know that your love is true and deep as the sea but right now everything you want is wrong.”
    “the sun is trying to kill the moon,” (I think of Apollo and Artemis here).
    “We’re made out of blood and rust” (The dry lands).
    “all your dreams are waking up.”

  115. Anna Theresia Millby says:

    For me the perfect song would be Mumford and Sons and their song Lovers Eyes
    A beautiful song that suits Lucas and Helen’s situation=)

  116. Shayenne says:

    Oh!! I think “I Don’t Love You” by My Chemical Romance would be perfect! Plus, it’s a pretty edgy song :D

  117. either based on the ending of book one : happy ending by mika
    for in general 8although I don’t quite like the melody the wording is just perfect):
    love conquers all by deep purple
    I looked everywhere, but the message of the book cannot not be expressed better than in these lyrics…
    It Feels like the end
    When you’re closer to losing your dreams
    Than losing a friend
    Flying blind
    I’m shooting into the dark
    Who will I find
    Oh girl
    And if it takes me a lifetime
    I swear I’ll tear down every wall
    Love conquers all

    On my way
    Tomorrow I rise with the sun
    Soon I’ll be gone
    Words can’t say
    How the memories of feelings of love
    They linger on
    Oh girl
    And if it takes me forever
    I know it’s worth every teardrop that falls
    Love conquers all

    Somewhere there’s a place in your heart
    Where the wounds never heal
    Well you’re not alone
    That’s just how I feel

    Love conquers all
    This one will last a lifetime
    And if love conquers all
    This one will last forever

  118. Kayleigh says:

    My Starcrossed theme song choice would have to be Free Fallin’ by John Mayer. Definetely!

  119. Answer this question: If you had to pick a theme song for the Starcrossed series which one would it be?

    It would be UNDER THE WATER by The Pretty Reckless

    Here’s the link for the music!

  120. “Superhuman Touch” by Athlete is so perfect for Helen and Lucas that it seems like they wrote it for them.
    the chorus:
    Your fingertips are like superhuman touch
    Can’t get enough of this electric love
    Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand
    The sparks flying out in every direction
    There’s more of this to come, I think it must be heaven
    Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand

  121. Tanya M. says:

    Coldplay- Paradise. I just love that song and it came to mind when the question was asked.

  122. Adle Love song I love this song

  123. I think that Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars would be a nice theme song :)

  124. Rebecca says:

    I’ve thought a lot about this, and I couldn’t decide between two songs. The first song is Find a Way by SafetySuit. This fits perfectly into the books theme of Lucas’ and Helen’s need to find some way for them to stay together. The second song is All or Nothing by Theory of a Deadman. For me, this song is perfect for how Helen and Lucas feel about each other.

  125. I have a few Starcrossed, hopeless love & love loss songs that I love:

    Listen to…

    ♥ Usher “Climax”! (They don’t want to break up, but they have no where else to go in the relationship)

    “Going nowhere fast. We’ve reached the climax.
    Were together now we’re undone.
    Won’t commit so we choose to run away.
    Do we separate?
    Don’t wanna give in so we both gave up.
    Can’t take it back. It’s too late.
    We’ve reached the climax, climax.” (From Usher, “Climax”)

    ♥ Mariah Carey – We Belong Together

    ♥ Mary J. Blige – Be Without You
    “Chemistry was crazy from the get-go
    Neither one of us knew why
    We didn’t build nothing overnight
    Cuz a love like this takes some time
    People swore it off as a phase
    Said we can’t see that
    Now from top to bottom
    They see that we did that (yes)
    It’s so true that (yes)
    We’ve been through it (yes)
    We got real sh** (yes)
    See baby we been…

    Too strong for too long (and I can’t be without you baby)” (From Mary J. Blige, “Be Without You”)

  126. A whole new world? The song in Aladdin?

  127. I love the song, “Un Vento di Passione.” I think it would fit. Even my boyfriend likes it, and he doesn’t even speak Italian.

  128. Katelyn Long says:

    Parachute Something to believe in

  129. I would say “The Winner Takes It All” by ABBA.

  130. Victoria Hicks says:

    I had a really hard time deciding on a song.
    I really loved some of the other answers and didn’t want to repeat/copy them.
    I spent hours going through my music collection and searching online for the right track.
    Having made a not so short ‘short list’ i managed to narrow it down to 2 songs. Out of the 2 of them one of them fit Lucas & Helen’s relationship in Starcrossed perfectly and that is the one i am going for.
    My theme song for Starcrossed is: Taking Chances by Celine Dion.
    Can’t wait for dreamless!
    Good luck to everyone!

  131. Rose P. says:

    I just heard this song and I think it fits perfectly with Starcrossed!
    I love it!

    Where Do I Belong – DemiGoddess

  132. Love lifts us up where we belong – Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes – Classic ;-D

  133. Veronica W. says:

    Hmmm… I would pick one of the background songs from the movie “Troy” ;)

  134. Maddyson says:

    “Warning Sign” – by Coldplay!
    or maybe
    “Whatever It Takes” by Lifehouse


    star crossed lovers by scary kids scarying kid (copyright to owners and all that)

    Star crossed lovers
    They say we’re not meant to be
    ‘Cause the stars in the sky, and the fashion that they are aligned.
    I say if the futures been drawn out there’s no point in living.
    I wont give up my love so that fate can have its way.

    If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
    Are you telling me that you would listen?
    If the words make their way from your mouth,
    Don’t ask my permission,
    All is forgiven.

    Star crossed lovers, we do what we want to.
    Some learn the hard way,
    We all learn through consequence.
    I say if the futures been drawn out then nobody’s living.
    I won’t give you up love, so fate can have its way.
    Its way.
    If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
    Are you telling me that you would listen?
    If the words make their way from your mouth,
    Don’t ask my permission,
    All is forgiven.

    Is it over?
    (The stars keep this fire from burning on)
    Is it over?
    (Are you saying that you’d really listen?)
    Is it over?
    (The stars keep this fire)
    Is it over?
    (The stars keep this fire)

    If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
    Are you telling me that you would listen?
    If the words make their way from your mouth,
    Don’t ask my permission,
    All is forgiven.

    If the stars say that you can not love.
    (The stars keep this fire from burning on)
    If the stars say that you can not love me

    [ Lyrics from: ]

  136. Rikki Acuna says:

    this totally explains helen’s and lucas’s relationship on how thier fate won’t let them be together but they don’t want to give up. I love this song as much as i love Starcrossed. this as a theme song just seems like a good match. Please listen to it. the song is soooo romantic and edgy

  137. Courtney Pierce says:

    If I had to choose a song as the theme then it would have to be Love Isn’t Always Fair by Black Veil Brides! It reminds me of how Helen and Lucas are completely in love with each other, but obstacles always get in the way of that, so in a way for them, love truly isn’t always fair. :)

    Thanks for this giveaway, I always love your giveaways, but more important I love your books!! You are a fantastic author and my inspiration. You inspired me to start my writing career and go for my dreams and I have always wanted to meet you, but you never have book tours in Lubbock, Texas. :( Anyways, aside from my prattling, I’m crossing my fingers to win your fabulous book, Dreamless, so I hope I win!! *<3

  138. Jordyn Sullivan says:

    It would have to be Where do I belong by the demigoddesses haha obvi but other wise any of these Miley Cyrus songs: every Rose has it’s thorn, I hope you find it, stay, take me along or two more lonely people, also Before the storm a duet with her and the Jonas Brothers (idky but her songs just seemed to fit & I <3 her!!)

  139. I’m not even joking, when I heard these songs I thought of Starcrossed:

    I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz
    Bleed by Hot Chelle Rae

  140. Brandy H says:

    I like Where Do I Belong by Safe Haven. I also liked someone else’s suggestion of Poison & Wne by The Civil Wars.

    Thanks for the contest!

  141. Strarcrossed by Ash

  142. Rahel Kutzner says:

    I should choose only one song? For that big crush of themes? Seems impossibly :D
    So I have decided for 5 Songs…
    even if I guess my luke is making vacations, I can’t miss this chance without trying..

    Ash Koley- Don’t let your feet touch ground
    [I'ts my personal favourite]
    Athlete- Superhuman Touch
    The Fray- She is
    Natasha Bedingfield- Weightless
    Status Quo- Living on an Island

  143. Moirae the fates says:

    Rolling in the deep Adle.

  144. I would choose: “Breathe Me” by Sia

  145. I don’t know about “theme song” because it’s pretty mellow, but Hearing Voices by OneRepublic applies. :)

  146. Ileana A. says:

    Hazy by Rosi Golan!

  147. I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz :) Thank you so much for the chance to review and promote your book! edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOtcom

  148. I think “My Heart Is Broken” by Evanescence. It has beautiful lyrics and a great feel to it!

  149. Samantha Fox says:

    “Breakaway” ~Kelly Clarkson

    Really fits the whole essence of the book in my mind. Small town, not fitting in, flying, breaking away from every thing…That’s basically Starcrossed sum up into a song! :)

    And for some reason I can’t explain, “Written in the Stars” ~Tinie Tempah. I think it may have to do with the fact that my sister sings that every time she looks at the back of Starcrossed and reads ‘A Love written in the stars…’ lol

  150. I think that Kings of Leon’s Closer perfectly captures the darker side of the series, especially what I read from those first chapters you released from Dreamless on the YA Scavenger Hunt. I think it captures the angst of forbidden love and the darkness and violence of the eternal war going on between the Scions as well as the creepiness of the Underworld. Here are the lyrics:

    Stranded in this spooky town
    Stoplights are swaying and the phone lines are down
    This floor is crackling cold
    She took my heart, I think she took my soul
    With the moon I run
    Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

    Driven by the strangled vein
    Showing no mercy I do it again
    Open up your eye
    You keep on crying, baby
    I’ll bleed you dry
    The skies are blinking at me
    I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

    And it’s coming closer
    And it’s coming closer

    You, shimmy shook my bone
    Leaving me stranded all in love on my own
    What do you think of me
    Where am I now? Baby where do I sleep
    Feel so good but I’m old,
    2000 years of chasing taking its toll

    And it’s coming closer

  151. “Can’t Help Falling in Love”
    But Ingrid Michaelson’s version:

  152. Megan Schmidt says:

    Defo A Thousand Years by Christina Perry. I love that song so much and I thinks it’s so pretty! Perfect for Starcrossed.

  153. Rhianna – We Found Love

  154. Ashlee Frame says:

    Oh, this is difficult! There are so many good songs that could be a theme song to Starcrossed…I think that Florence and the Machine’s song “Cosmic Love” would be a good one, but there are many others1!
    Thank you for having all these giveaways! I think it’s awesome :D

  155. Anna Maria says:

    I personally like Human by the Killers. Not the average love song for the story is centered around love but the issues range much further then that. the Demigods have so much on their plates that they forget to be human almost. the song repeats many times, “Are we human, or are we dancers,” last time i checked dancers were humans but that is the point the scions are still part human, they still have to attend school, get jobs, drive cars, and fit in.
    At one point the song says, “And so long to devotion. You taught me everything I know. Wave goodbye, wish me well. You’ve gotta let me go.” When Helen found out she was a scion, Luke and his family taught her everything, and she and Luke fell deeper in love, then they find out they could start a war, putting an end to the happiness. worst of all the seem to be cousins, hence the “You’ve gotta let me go…”

  156. Krystal Tanami says:

    I agree I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz

  157. Chihiro Mochi says:

    “sparks fly” -taylor swift

  158. Rachel Chan says:

    Maybe Someday, Someday by Thirsty Merc?

  159. Mary Preston says:

    WE FOUND LOVE – Rhianna.

  160. Aleyda Castro says:

    When the question was asked i started searching for songs that would fit Lucas and Helens love; however, everyone was focusing on that angle so then i started focusing more on Helen herself because after all the story focuses more on her than on Lucas and I think this song is perfect for her because it describes her situation and how she i going to have to take the road less traveled which is the Underworld to rid the Scions from the Furies. In the song Helens powers are also talked about.
    The Song is Who Am I Living For- Katy Perry

    Yeah eh yeah yeah,
    I can feel a phoenix inside of me
    as i march alone to a different beat
    slowly swallowing down my fear, yeah yeah
    I am ready for the road less traveled
    suiting up for my crowning battle
    this test is my own cross to bear
    but i will get there

    Its never easy to be chosen,
    never easy to be called
    standing on the frontline when the box starts to fall
    I can see the heavens but i still hear the flames
    calling out my name
    I can see the writing on the wall
    I can’t ignore this war
    at the end of it all
    Who am i living for?

    I can feel this lightness inside of me
    growing fast into a bolt of lightning
    I know one spark will shock the world, yeah yeah
    so i pray for a favor like Esther
    I need your strength to handle the pressure
    I know there will be sacrifice
    But thats the price


    Heavy is the head that wears the crown
    don’t let the greatness get you down, oh, oh yeah


    • Cassandra Armstrong says:

      After reading your comment and hearing the songs, I think this song fits.. Good Job
      Cassie Armstrong

  161. Khalia Guidera says:

    A Drop In The Ocean – Ron Pope :)

  162. I like Drumming Song by Florence and the Machine :-)

  163. Diane Watters says:

    i dont thin one song would do…. right now im listening to heaven coming down by the tea party… its a little fitting

  164. I’m gonna go with the majority and say We Found Love by Rihanna :)

  165. I think the song ‘Kiss Me Slowly’ by Parachute (w/Lady Antebellum) is just meant for the two starcrossed lovers! I listened to this song at the time I read Starcrossed! It’s perfect for Helen and Lucas! ♥♥
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! ♥♥
    Hope you do too!
    -StarLove! ♥
    Can’t wait for Dreamless!

  166. Also A lot of songs by Lady Antebellum are good!
    ‘As you turn away’ = Because of their current relationship status! :”(
    ‘Need you now’ = Because it’s perfect for their protection and love for each other! :’)
    ‘Somewhere love remains’ = also about their relationship.
    ‘When you were mine’ = This song is just beautiful, and It makes me cry. (not that I do…) It goes according to the situation their in. Especially in Dreamless.
    ‘Just a kiss’ = Because they haven’t exactly done so much after kisses … which I think is sweet and adorable! but we’re hoping for more.. ;) and this song is just mesmerizingly beautiful! (and that’s not even a word)

    Hope you like’em Josie! ♥
    -StarLove! ♥♥

  167. Jessica says:

    Sorrow by Flyleaf…something about the tone of the song feels right for Starcrossed.

  168. Beth Richards says:

    I would suggest Sara Bareilles song ‘The Light’. It’s a gorgeous melody, backed by Sara’s brilliant voice. She just makes the whole story come alive, and it reminds me of Helen and Lucas.

    In the morning it comes, heaven sent a hurricane
    Not a trace of the sun but I don’t even run from rain
    Beating out of my chest, my heart is holding on to you
    From the moment I knew
    From the moment I knew

    You are the air in my breath filling up my love soaked lungs
    Such a beautiful mess intertwined and overrun
    Nothing better than this, oh, and then the storm can come
    You feel just like the sun
    Just like the sun

    And if you say we’ll be alright
    I’m gonna trust you, babe
    I’m gonna look in your eyes
    And if you say we’ll be alright
    I’ll follow you into the light

  169. Agnes Ledbetter says:

    It would have to be Rocketeer by Far East Movement & Ryan Tedder

  170. Thea Ryan says:

    Somewhere Only We Know by Keane

  171. Julianne M says:

    I was definitely thinking I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz. Glad to see so many other people thought so as well. Ahh can’t wait to read Dreamless!!

  172. If I were to choose a theme song for this Starcrossed story, it would either be “Beautiful Girl” by Christian Baustista because there’s a part on the song about ‘destiny’s game’ or “Endless Love” by Lionel Riche and Diana Ross because I just find this song so romantic!

  173. Johanna says:

    I’m thinking of Classical Music!
    (Sorry, I don’t know if you call it that in the US, I mean Beethoven and Mozart)
    If I knew some Greek ancient Music, I think I would chose that.
    But it needs to be something old!

  174. I dont know if it has been mentioned already, but how about: “Over and Over” by Three Days Grace :)

  175. Fatima B. says:

    I think ‘Cosmic Love’ by Florence + the Machine :)

  176. Setting Sail by Port Blue.

  177. I knew I loved you before I met you by savage garden.

    \n Maybe it’s intuition
    But some things you just don’t question
    Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
    And there it goes,
    I think I found my best friend
    I know that it might sound
    More than a little crazy
    But I believe

    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I think I dreamed you into life
    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I have been waiting all my life

    There’s just no rhyme or reason
    Only the sense of completion
    And in your eyes, I see
    The missing pieces I’m searching for
    I think I’ve found my way home
    I know that it might sound
    More than a little crazy
    But I believe

    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I think I dreamed you into life
    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I have been waiting all my life

    A thousand angels dance around you
    I am complete now that I’ve found you

    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I think I dreamed you into life
    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I have been waiting all my life

    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I think I dreamed you into life
    I knew I loved you before I met you
    I have been waiting all my life

  178. reading mind says:

    I would probably choose “The right kind of wrong” ny Lee Ann rimes

  179. I think any flourence and the machine song would work or possibly a sad Adele song, for some of the sad parts. You can’t go wrong with a lot of the songs others posted; it is all about the feelings of the characters to find the right song. :)

  180. Louise Johansson says:

    My heart will go on, by Celine Dion

  181. Kasia Rogers says:

    I think it’s got to be, I won’t let you go by James Morrison

  182. The first thing that pops into my head is Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls!
    Also, So Close by Jon McLaughlin (LOVE THAT SONG) would totally work! :)

  183. I would say We Found Love by Rihanna. It just covers the whole “I love you but seems like being together is impossible and somehow a very unhealthy thing to do” situation they have.

    Thanks for the giveaway, I’m crossing all my fingers xD

  184. Leah Dewet says:

    Need you now by Lady Antebellum

  185. Dipali Dhiru says:

    It will Rain – Bruno Mars. Thanks for this opportunity. Really appreciate it.

  186. Dipali Dhiru says:

    Hurt by Christina Aguilera
    I LOVE starcrossed, and hope i win this time. Nevertheless Thanks for this opportunity.
    Can’t wait for Dreamless.

  187. Dipali Dhiru says:

    David Guetta – Without You.

  188. Lauren J says:

    I *hope* it is “I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz!

  189. Cristina says:

    Never Let Me Go by Florence and the Machine. “I’m not giving up, I’m just giving in” Such angst and desire but, apprehension like the two main character’s of Dreamless:)

  190. It’s really tough because I love Starcrossed so much and it’s really difficult choosing a song that suits the whole story but if I had to pick one it would be Vessel by Zola Jesus. I love her voice and the whole beat and I could really see scenes from the book before me when I listen to it :)

  191. I think ’100 Suns’ by 30 Seconds To Mars or ‘Hurricane’ for more of a fast paced one :)

  192. who am i living for- katy perry

  193. Mary Shoemaker says:

    I don’t want to miss a thing by Aerosmith

  194. Flavia Cerreto says:

    MK Ultra by Muse. Yes, Josie, we both know Muse are awsome

  195. Vera Rein says:

    Got 2 Luv You by Sean Paul.

  196. Lynn Suer says:

    Oh, I love all songs by DemiGoddess. I think they do a great job!

  197. safe and sound-taylor swift

  198. Nina F. says:

    Alex Clare – Too close to love you

  199. Angela Gaudet says:

    Im stuck between 2 songs .. either I can’t help falling in love with you- the version by ingrid michelson
    or .. young blood- the version by Birdy
    Both beautiful love songs that relate to Lucas & Helen!!

  200. You Raise Me Up by Celtic Woman
    It’s my absolute FAVORITE song! I goes perfectly with any love story. :D
    I also like No Light, No Light and Drumming Song by Florence + The Machine. :)

  201. Isabel G-G says:

    That’s tough. I think something by Florence and the Machine or Lana del Rey would be good. It really depends on what aspect of the book you’re focusing on. “Without You” by Lana del Rey, maybe.

  202. After reading throught some of the comments and seeing the Jason Mraz lyrics, I agree they match up perfectly.

  203. Marie O. says:

    I don’t know why, but I always think of “Edge of Seventeen” by Stevie Nicks when I was reading Starcrossed.

  204. Alex :) says:

    I would choose We Found Love by Rihanna and Calvin Harris :) i think that the lyrics describe the series :) <3

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  205. Beautil Girl

  206. Markell Beazer says:

    Try by Asher Book

  207. Vanessa Carlton- A Thousand Miles <3 I love this song so much! I think the song is about loving someone so much you would make any kind of sacrifice just to see them. Its such a cute song!! and it makes me think of Helen and Lucas .

    I love starcrossed <3 i cant wait for Dreamless! thanks for the awesome give away :)

  208. Allyson says:

    I think “I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz is clear favourite and I can see why…it goes perfectly! I would have to say that or “yellow” by coldplay. Thank you for this oppertunity, I love your work and only hope I’m lucky enough! Good luck everyone! :)

  209. I think that Star Crossed by Scary Kids Scaring Kids would be perfect in every way as a theme song for the Starcrossed Series.

    Here are some of the lyrics:
    “Star crossed lovers
    They say we’re not meant to be
    ‘Cause the stars in the sky, and the fashion that they are aligned
    I say if the futures been drawn out, there’s no point in living.
    I wont give up my love so that fate can have its way..
    If the stars say that you couldn’t love me
    Are you telling me that you would listen?”

    Perfect, Right? -xoxo Skye

  210. Id say Running up that hill by kate bush!! But the MPHO cover… I think it suits SO well!!!

  211. Michelle says:

    Hm… I’d say the Glee cover of Human Nature by Micheal Jackson.

  212. I think that I told you this already, a while back, but i think:

    What am I to you -Norah Jones

  213. Josie, my choice of theme songs probably dates me *grin* but Imma go with:

    “Almost Paradise” sung by Ann Wilson & Mike Reno from the ORIGINAL “Footloose”

    Because I am betting on a happy ending for Lucas & Helen!

  214. This is hard, but I think “Learning to Fly” by Tom Petty, the lyrics, at least, are very reminiscent of the series

  215. Amanda G. says:

    I am thinking…Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum :)

  216. Annabelle Ng says:

    An obvious angsty choice but Whisper by Evanescence – especially the line – ‘Don’t turn off the lights’..

  217. fall for you again by secondhand serenade.

    It’s an old song but if fits perfectly
    hope you like it ;)

  218. Annabelle Law says:

    Florence and the Machine-Between two lungs. I love her, she is truly a fantastic!

  219. Hmmm, I think i’d go with Somebody I used to know by Goyte:) Thanks for doing this giveaway Josie! Can’t until Dreamless comes out:)

    Also, i was just wondering if you were going to do a signing in the UK??? Thanks:)

  220. Beloved One by Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals (live from Mars)

    Firstly I just adore this song!
    Although the context of the song is different, the lyrics just shout Helen and Lucas to me for example:

    “We have BOTH BEEN HERE BEFORE, Knocking upon loves door, begging for some one to let us in. Knowing this we can agree, to keep each other company,NEVER TO GO DOWN THAT ROAD AGAIN”

    ” Your eyes shine through me, you are so DIVINE to me, your heart has a home in mine. We won’t have to says word, with a touch all will be heard, when I search my heart it’s you I find”

    “You were MEANT FOR ME. I believe you were SENT FOR ME. from A DREAM straight in to my arms”


  221. Maddy W. says:

    Time after Time
    - Cyndi Lauper
    That would be my choiceHope it helps!

  222. I think maybe without you – the cover by lea michele

  223. These kinds of things are really hard for me haha but while I was getting ready this morning… Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars came on and I thought that it would be an awesome theme song for Lucas and Helen. :)

  224. Katherina Barney says:

    WOW!!! There is a lot of really good suggestions. I have to say that there are several songs I think can become the theme song to this wonderful series (and I reserve the right to add/take away more during the contest window).
    Which to Bury Us or the Hatchet by Relient K
    Like Vines by The Hush Sound
    The Only One by Evanescence
    and Broken (feat. Amy Lee) by Seether

  225. I know that this is TECHINCALLY a different myth, but the song is amazing: “Hero and Leander” by Adam Guettel

  226. So many of the songs I’ve thought of have already been mentioned…they’re all great and just perfect! Another song is maybe Leona Lewis’s Bleeding Love? I think it suits how Lucas and Helen obviously feel about each other and the obstacles that try to keep them apart. Or how about Do What You Have To Do by Sarah McLachlan? Maybe Gavin Mikhail’s Catch Your Fall?

    I’m gonna stop now, haha! With all of the suggestions we could totally make a Starcrossed soundtrack!! :P

    Thanks! As always, my fingers are crossed! :D

  227. I would choose Rebel Love Song, by Black Veil Brides. It describes them so well! Them wanting to be together but things getting the way. :) It’s a great song if no one has heard it!


  228. I’ve been on a bit of an Ed Sheeran kick lately, so I’m gonna say “Kiss Me”. It’s sweet and warm, and perfectly encapsulates those initial feelings of falling hard for someone. Well suited for Helen and Lucas, I think :)

    Kiss me like you wanna be loved
    You wanna be loved
    You wanna be loved
    This feels like falling in love
    Falling in love
    We’re falling in love

    Settle down with me
    And I’ll be your safety
    You’ll be my lady

    I was made to keep your body warm
    But I’m cold as the wind blows so hold me in your arms

    Oh no
    My heart’s against your chest, your lips pressed in my neck
    I’m falling for your eyes, but they don’t know me yet
    And with this feeling I’ll forget, I’m in love now

  229. Samantha D says:

    We can stop the world by the glitch mob!

  230. Gabriela Navarro says:

    “Forever Yours” by Xandria

  231. I thought it through and the only song that stuck to me when I think of the book was Beautiful Nightmare by Beyonce. I don’t know why though.

  232. Liz McNamee says:

    Straight jacket feeling by all American rejects… It captures the angst of lucas and helen’s relationship without being too whiny ;)

  233. You’re the One That I Want by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John

  234. I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz or Just A Kiss by Lady Antebellum

  235. Alex Wye says:

    I would have to say ‘Infinity’ by The XX. Its a beautiful song and talks about how they don’t want to give up on each other, theres even this kinda of argument between staying together and separting in the middle of the song! I just think it would be perfect! x

  236. I find it really hard to pick a song when so far I’ve only read one book but I really love Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars.
    Thanks for all the giveaways, Josie! You are, to quote another song, totally awesome. ;)

  237. I’m gonna pick starships by Nicki minaj. I’m rubbish at choosing theme songs too, so I’m just picking this song cuz I can’t get this song out of my head at the moment:D

  238. I think I would pick any Florence and the Machine song. Maybe I’m being biased (I love Flo’s music!) but then it is quite awesome! Probably Cosmic Love, because that song is all mysterious and cool like Starcrossed… Heh.

  239. Cupid’s Got a Shotgun by Carrie Underwood. It totally applies to Helen.

  240. Stelina Papagianneli says:

    I think I would pick enchanted by taylor swift :’) or just a kiss by lady antebellum

  241. Cassie Fillmore says:

    Cupid’s Got A Shotgun by Carrie Underwood…when I first heard it I thought about this series!!

  242. I think a song that would be soooo amazing for this would be an absaloute billiant song for starcrossed!! And it really describes what Lucas felt like!!!!! Its called ‘I should Go’ and its by Levi Kreis!!

    Or my second choice!! (i have to many songs for this book) would be Adam lambert-better than I know myself!!! ALSO AMAAAZINGG!! :D

    OMG I LOVE YOU JOSIE!!! Keep writing and know that your fans will follow you forever!!! xxx :D xxxx

  243. MaryAngelica Rivodo says:

    I honestly think the perfect song is “I won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz. whenever i hear it i always think about starcrossed. <3

  244. Without A Word – Birdy

    She sings so beautiful <3 And the song describes the relationship between Lucas and Helen!!

  245. Bekkiie Crowe says:

    The Call by Regina Spektor, it’s such a beautiful song and so many of the lyrics have parallels to Starcrossed;

    “Just because everything’s changing doesn’t mean it’s never been this way before” ~Talking about The Fates and the cycles.

    “It started out as a feeling which then grew into a hope” ~ When Helen and Lucas find out they’re free of the Furies and can be together (well not completely, but you get the idea).

    “It’s just a feeling and no one knows yet but just because they can’t feel it too doesn’t mean that you have to forget” ~When Helen and Lucas find out they’re related and they try to forget their feelings.

    “All you can do is try to know who your friends are as you head off to the war” ~ Everyone not really trusting Daphne but helping her with the Outcasts regardless.


  246. Kristyne Baran says:

    I would say Lightning by The Wanted

  247. Anastasia Cyr says:

    Because of the intensity, fast pace, and extremely allluring charm of Starcrossed, I would choose “It’s About Time” by Barcelona. I also happen to envision another one of their songs called “Falling Out of Trees”. They are a great band and any number of ther songs give me a vision of Helen and Lucas. Other song might include, “Say” by One Republic, or “Practice Makes Perfect” by Cute Is What We Aim For. When I try to picture Lucas teaching Helen to fly, I think of “practice makes perfect”, but when I think of Helen and Lucas avoidng eachother, I think of “Say”.
    Overall I think “It’s About Time”
    and “Falling Out of Trees”
    would be my most obvious choices.
    I think that each section of the book has it’s own pace, emotion, and level of music. Some parts I imagine it to be stark quiet against the dialogue, but other parts are just full of heartwrenching burst of music so loud, that your heart’s beats begin to thump in rhythm, I sync with the song. The music consumes you in some scenes, and protects you from reaity at other moments. I believe that both songs I chose are just two different facets of how I invision this book, and that there are a million more thanks to the books vividness.

  248. Jodi Manweiler says:

    Rebel Love Song! I love this song

  249. Elizabeth says:

    Cosmic Love, by Florence and the Machine!
    “A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
    I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it’s left me blind

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
    I tried to find the sound
    But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
    So darkness I became

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
    And knew that somehow I could find my way back
    Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
    So I stayed in the darkness with you

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart”

  250. Either “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic, or “Hero/Heroine” by Boys Like Girls.

  251. Felicia says:

    Stolen by Dashboard Confessional

  252. Sabrina Hayter says:

    i think SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW by gotye would be a theme song for this book when Helen and Lucas are avoiding each other.

  253. I wa sthinking about The Story by Brandi Carlile, I´ve always think is a lovely song :)

  254. Beautiful Love – The Afters

  255. Kiki Ferreira says:

    This song is perfect for the theme song it’s called “Run” by Snow Patrol, it is Leona Lewis and Katharine Mcphee did a cover. It is a beautiful song that I think you should really consider since the meaning of the song truley embodies Lucas and Helens torn relationship (even in the exerpts I read from dreamless). Here is the link to the music video:
    And here are the lyrics:

    I’ll sing it one last time for you
    Then we really have to go
    You’ve been the only thing that’s right
    In all I’ve done

    And I can barely look at you
    But every single time I do
    I know we’ll make it anywhere
    Away from here

    Light up, light up
    As if you have a choice
    Even if you cannot hear my voice
    I’ll be right beside you dear

    Louder louder
    And we’ll run for our lives
    I can hardly speak I understand
    Why you can’t raise your voice to say

    To think I might not see those eyes
    Makes it so hard not to cry
    And as we say our long goodbye
    I nearly do

    Light up, light up
    As if you have a choice
    Even if you cannot hear my voice
    I’ll be right beside you dear

    Louder louder
    And we’ll run for our lives
    I can hardly speak I understand
    Why you can’t raise your voice to say

    Slower slower
    We don’t have time for that
    All I want’s to find an easy way
    To get out of our little heads

    Have heart, my dear
    We’re bound to be afraid
    Even if it’s just for a few days
    Making up for all this mess

    Light up, light up
    As if you have a choice
    Even if you cannot hear my voice
    I’ll be right beside you dear

  256. I think “Breathing” by Lifehouse – absolutely love that song :)

  257. Stephanie says:

    I Won’t Give Up – Jason Mraz or maybe A Drop In the Ocean – Ron Pope

  258. I would have to say either ‘The One That Got Away’ by Katy Perry or ‘Glad you came’ by The Wanted.
    Thanks for the giveaways Josie!!!!

  259. Mhm .. maybe “Faster – Within Temptation” or “October&April” – The Rasmus ft. Anette Olzon” :)

  260. Jessica Gallen says:

    my contest
    I was thinking (taylor swift- the way i loved you)
    I find that some of the lyrics match the story line, and that it fits in with what is happening between lucas and helen. It’s the theme song to starcrossed in my eyes. I hope that you like my choice of song.
    I chose this song becasue it makes me feel all the emotions that i find in the book between helen and lucas, and i just think that the lyrics sum up what the emotions are about in this book and here are the lyrics.
    He is sensible and so incredible
    And all my single friends are jealous
    He says everything I need to hear and it’s like
    I couldn’t ask for anything better
    He opens up my door and I get into his car
    And he says you look beautiful tonight
    And I feel perfectly fine

    But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
    And it’s 2am and I’m cursing your name
    You’re so in love that you act insane
    And that’s the way I loved you
    Breakin’ down and coming undone
    It’s a roller coaster kinda rush
    And I never knew I could feel that much
    And that’s the way I loved you

    He respects my space
    And never makes me wait
    And he calls exactly when he says he will
    He’s close to my mother
    Talks business with my father
    He’s charming and endearing
    And I’m comfortable

    But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
    And it’s 2am and I’m cursing your name
    You’re so in love that you act insane
    And that’s the way I loved you
    Breakin’ down and coming undone
    It’s a roller coaster kinda rush
    And I never knew I could feel that much
    And that’s the way I loved you

    He can’t see the smile I’m faking
    And my heart’s not breaking
    Cause I’m not feeling anything at all
    And you were wild and crazy
    Just so frustrating intoxicating
    Complicated, got away by some mistake and now

    I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
    It’s 2am and I’m cursing your name
    I’m so in love that I acted insane
    And that’s the way I loved you
    Breaking down and coming undone
    It’s a roller coaster kinda rush
    And I never knew I could feel that much
    And that’s the way I loved you oh, oh

    And that’s the way I loved you oh, oh
    Never knew I could feel that much
    And that’s the way I loved you
    Hope you like the lyrics.
    Jessica Gallen xxx
    P.S i love you books they are great even if i dont win or anything i will still be thank full that you gave me this oppurtunity to enter, you are get
    all my love Jessica

  261. So excited to finally get to read Dreamless!!

  262. Maybe:

    Everything by Michael Bublé

    I wont give up by Jason Mraz

    Just a kiss by Lady Antebellum

    Tell me that you love me by Victoria Justice

    Song 2 You by Leon Thomas III ft. Victoria Justice

    Telling the world by Taio Cruz

  263. WOW, I so want to win this after entering every contest there is for this book! This is quite a difficult question and I love a lot of the suggestions made so far!

    I *LOVE* Surrender by Digital Daggers (the acoustic version or the other version) and think that is a gorgeous song that fits with Starcrossed.

    As always, thank you for the opportunity to win :)

  264. The song that immediately jumped into my head was ‘Open Heaven’ by BarlowGirl, which actually gets more and more perfect the more I think about it! I can imagine Helen humming it as she whizzes along on her bike, never quite realising how ironic the lyrics will soon be…

  265. I think the DemiGoddess do a great job!

  266. I would choose Baby Blue Eyes by A Rocket To The Moon. Also, Dakota by the same band as well. Maybe Enchanted by Taylor Swift. i Promise You by Selena Gomez is also a good one too.

  267. Two is Better Than One, By Boys Like Girls w/ Taylor Swift

  268. Meeny Rammohun says:

    I Wont Give Up By Jason Mraz

  269. A lot of people already said this but i agree. I won’t give up by Jason Mraz

  270. i was thinking about two:
    1st: Phil Collins – You’ll be in my heart
    2nd a german one: Rapsoul – Erste Liebe
    enjoy ;)

  271. I love you like a love song
    I won’t give up

  272. Meaghan says:

    I think the best song for the series would be Taylor Swift’s “Love Song” because the series is about forbidden love, but in the end they MUST end up together.. right? :P so it’s perfect

  273. Lillian P. says:

    I know this was written for a different book/movie franchise, but I truly love Anya Marina’s “Satellite Heart.” However, I also second (third or fourth) Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” I am counting down the days until I can get my hands on Dreamless. Josie, please come to Memphis!

  274. I think that “Half Life” by Imogen Heap is the song that goes with the series! I think the song really approaches the connection that Helen and Lucas share. I think that it’s a bittersweet song, which kind of describes Helen’s and Lucas’s relationship. I know this probably isn’t the first song someone would think of when they think of Starcrossed, because they think that the book needs a better song, but I really think this song is great for the book. I can’t wait for Dreamless to come out!!! I’m marking the days on my calendar and counting down on my phone!!!!!!!!!

  275. Mikayla Hogan says:

    Never let me go- Florence and the Machine :) Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  276. Just saw the trailer for Snow White and the huntsman, and the song that Florence & the Machine does is perfect for this book too!

    “breath of life” by Florence & the Machine!


    “I was looking for a breath of life
    A little touch of heavenly light
    But all the choirs in my head say, no”

  277. Caroline says:

    Right now, I’m kind of obsessed with “Heaven’s Gonna Wait” by Hedley, so I’m going to pick that song.

  278. DemiGoddess for sure.

  279. Coral Taylor says:

    “Kiss Me Slowly” by Parachute for sure!! <3
    Makes my toes go all tingly! :)

  280. Lynn Suer says:

    The DemiGoddess – where do I belong ♥

  281. Anam Khan says:

    I’d also go with Rihanna’s We Found Love

  282. Wow, there are a lot of great choices here. I would probably go with Jason Mraz “I won’t give up”

  283. R. Joie Young says:

    “Doomsday” by Murray Gold (Doctor Who Soundtrack), most definitely. There are NO lyrics which just highlights the desperation and longing and tragedy in the song. But, best of all, there’s that driving force underneath, like a throbbing heart, that says, “No matter how bad this is, I’m going to keep going because there is NO OTHER option.”

    Here’s a link if you’ve never heard it:


  284. Amber Hall says:

    I would have to say I’ll Follow You by Shinedown.

  285. …or maybe: I will never let you go by James Morrison

  286. Chelsea says:

    Cosmic love By Florence and the machine

  287. Combesy says:

    STARLIGHT BY MUSE <3 <3 <3 perfect <3 <3 <3

  288. Ashley Correa says:

    I’d prob go with Florence & the Machine’s “Never Let Me Go”

  289. Jennifer says:

    we found love-Rihanna

  290. Samantha says:

    I have been digging Fun. recently so I have to pick either Why Am I The One or Stars by them.

    Thanks for the chance- looking forward to reading :)

  291. ..or maybe:

    Not over you by Gavin DeGraw

    Soldier by Gavin DeGraw

    The woman I love by Jason Mraz

  292. Rescue Me – Kerrie Roberts

  293. the quest – bryan christopher

  294. Jason Mraz – I won’t give up

  295. Markie B says:

    You can’t go wrong with Taylor Swift, The Way I Loved You, Jump Then Fall, and Forever and Always.
    But if you want something fresh and new try He Is We and their songs; Kiss It All Better, Happily Ever After, Fall, Everything You Do, All About Us, and Forever and Ever.
    I also suggest Young by The Summer Set.

    Forever and Always would be perfect considering the relationship from Starcrossed, that turns into a confusing mess (on Helen’s part) in Dreamless (at least that is what I have learned from an excerpt).

    Jump Then Fall, is too cute to pass up. I mean they can fly!

    All About Us, it is honestly all about Lucas and Helen. They decide the fate of the other demigods and the human lives that will be drawn into the war!

    You’ll like the other ones too! I just like the ones I suggested a bit more :)

  296. i wont give up by jason mraz
    a thousand years by christina perri (or the cover done by megan and liz and paradise fears)
    not over you by gavin degraw

    cant wait to read the book!

  297. Erin Edwards says:

    I think the perfect song for the series is “I Need to Be Next To You” By Sixpence None The Richer. I think it has been redone by Sara Evans, Michelle Branch and Jordan Sparks but I like the original the best. I think it’s perfect for Helen and Lucus!!!

  298. Amber Hutchison says:

    Enchanted by Taylor swift

  299. Amber Hutchison says:

    Enchanted by Taylor Swift because it’s like two people in love meeting

  300. Falling in love by Falling up
    Very nice song I believe it fits to story so very well!

  301. The song for the series would be “How You’re Beautiful” by One Direction. This really fits because they lob each other and the situation keeps them apart, just like the singer is kept apart from his love because of his shyness.

    Love you all!!!

  302. Your Body is a Machine by The Good Natured

  303. wild horses by natasha bedingfeild it matches perfectly

  304. Within Temptation – What Have You Done. The first verse begins with, “Would you mind if I hurt you? / Understand that I need to” and the second begins with “Would you mind if I killed you? / Would you mind if I tried to?” And this is the chorus:

    “I, I’ve been waiting for someone like you
    But now you are slipping away, oh
    Why? Why does fate make us suffer?
    There’s a curse between us,
    Between me and you”

    And then, this interlude:

    “I will not fall, won’t let it go
    We will be free when it ends”

    The lyrics are pretty much perfect for Helen and Lucas’s situation. :D

  305. I won’t give up. I think it would be a perfect starcrossed theme song x3 No but really, i love this song and i think it would be perfect <3

  306. Crystal Esparza says:

    Cant stand it by nevershoutnever <3<3<3 i feel like lucas would sing is to helen cuz uknow… yeahXDD <3<3<3

  307. Brooke Gillespie says:

    I would pick “1000 Years” by Christina Perri as the theme song for the series

  308. Where do I Belong by DemiGoddess

  309. If I had to choose a theme song it would be Hero/Heroine by Boys Like Girls :)

  310. Cathryne Hamsher says:

    I cannot decide something that important! (Not to mention there are so many choices)

  311. Demi Lovato – Give Your Heart a Break

  312. sei parte di me by zero assoluto

  313. I hate “mixing” series, but I think of Helen and Lucas when I hear 1000 years by Christina Perri (even though its connected with Twilight)

  314. Rebekah says:

    Crystallize – Lindsey Stirling would be a pretty good theme song. It’s got this almost unearthly, fast-paced but romantic tone to it. Definitely Star-Crossed material :) xoxo.

  315. Beautiful world by Westlife

  316. Jess Kemmish says:

    iris-Goo Goo Dolls cause it was what I was listening to when I first started reading starcrossed :)

  317. Hate that I love you by Rihanna featuring Ne-Yo

  318. How can i not love you by joy enriquez

  319. I think impossible love by katelyn benton is perfect for starcrossed

  320. If the gods may know your name – Black Milk
    it’s a little bit dark but I think it fits considering the past ;)
    for lighter parts rihanna – we found love could work as well

  321. Someone already said it but I think Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum would be amazing.

  322. Cassandra Armstrong says:

    THE STORY OF US: BY TAYLOR SWIFT: I think this fits Starcrossed perfectly.

  323. Colleen Carroll says:

    Jason Mraz- I Won’t Give Up

  324. Lora Cole says:

    I think the perfect song for Starcrossed should be “goodbye my lover” by James Blunt! It has a great story line in the song that to me matches the book really well

  325. Georgina says:

    My choice of song doesn’t have anything to do with the ‘love’ part of the story, but i quite like 30 Seconds To Mars – This is war. I Don’t know why, but I picture it if Helen does break the curse, and all four houses stop hating on each other:D

  326. Alyssa Adamsen says:

    I think a good theme song for Starcrossed would be Paradise by Coldplay

  327. Donya P says:

    I like the story of us by Taylor Swift also… Love the song and love the book… hope I win…

  328. For me a good song for the book could be “7 Things” by Miley Cyrus for the beginn of Starcrossed.
    I think than only you could say what song is best because you write this wonderful trilogy and only you live the character and the story in the first person. We can just find a song than for us is as close as possible what you wanna transmit to us .

  329. Kelly Rousey says:

    I would pick total eclipse of the heart by Bonnie Tyler. :) :)

  330. Alyssa C. says:

    Cosmic Love by Florence + the Machine

  331. I think the song “Crashing into love” by my favourite singers Martin & James fits perfectly. Here are the lyrics:

  332. Maggie F says:

    Gotye’s Somebody that I Used to Know – something that I hope doesn’t happen to Lucas and Helen!

  333. Kristen says:

    Haunted by Taylor Swift because it shows how everything changed between Helen and Lucas after they found out they were first cousins.

  334. Maybe a Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton? For the ending of Starcrossed?
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  335. Emily R says:

    I would probably say Never Let Me Go by Florence and the Machine or else Don’t Let Me Go by The Summer Set. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  336. Cassandra G says:

    I think “What have you done?” by Within Temptation is a good song for the kind of relationship that Lucas and Helen have <3

  337. I have two songs in mind when I think of Helen and Lucas.

    The first is Skinny Love by Birdy

    Come on skinny love, just last the year
    Pour a little salt, we were never here
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

    I tell my love to wreck it all
    Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Right at the moment this order’s tall

    And I told you to be patient
    And I told you to be fine
    And I told you to be balanced
    And I told you to be kind

    And in the morning, I’ll be with you
    But it will be a different kind
    ‘Cause I’ll be holding all the tickets
    And you’ll be owning all the fines

    [. From: .]
    Come on skinny love, what happened here?
    Suckle on the hope in light brassiere
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

    And I told you to be patient
    And I told you to be fine
    And I told you to be balanced
    And I told you to be kind

    And now all your love is wasted
    Then who the hell was I?
    ‘Cause now I’m breaking at the britches
    And at the end of all your lines

    Who will love you?
    Who will fight?
    Who will fall far behind?

    Come on skinny love
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my

    Be Still by The Fray
    Be still and know
    That I’m with you
    Be still and know
    That I am here
    Be still and know
    That I’m with you
    Be still, be still
    And know

    When darkness comes upon you
    And covers you with fear and shame
    Be still and know
    That I’m with you
    And I will say your name
    If terror falls upon your bed
    And sleep no longer comes
    Remember all the words I’ve said
    [ From : ]
    Be still, be still
    And know

    And when you go through the valley
    And shadow comes down from the hill
    If morning never comes to be
    Be still, be still, be still
    If you forget the way to go
    And lose where you came from
    If no-one’s standin beside you
    Be still, and know I am

    Be still and know
    That I’m with you
    Be still and know
    I am

  338. I would pick from Lucas to Helen, Satellite by Dave Matthews Band. An epic love needs an epic love song <3

    Come What May

  340. Angkarina says:

    Thank you for this awesome giveaway! I’ve read Starcrossed so many times already and I love it!
    Can’t wait to read this one =)
    I think “World collapsing” by Danny Cocke would fit this perfectly. It’s a instrumental song, but I think it fits the story because elements that can be found in the book are desperation, tension, tragedy & forbidden love. All of these fit in the song perfectly! =D I can just imagine the scenes unfolding in this song.

  341. Adriana Jovel says:

    Blown Away by Carrie Underwood!!

  342. paige warren says:

    So my sort of theme song for the Starcrossed series would be I’ll Make A Man Out of You from Mulan.
    Because MULAN.
    And also Helen must fight and things like but she is unsuited for the rage of war, how could Lucas make a man out of her?
    But she is as swift as a coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon. She has literally got the strength of a raging fire and I’d say she’s pretty mysterious.
    Thus, I’ll Make A Man Out of You is perfect.

  343. “Keep Us” by Peter Bradley Adams
    The lyrics of this song I feel completely embodies Helen and Lucas’ relationship and it’s such a beautiful, melancholy song.

    “So keep us, and keep us, keep us from the storm”

  344. Raychelle says:

    DemiGoddess- “Where do I belong” is a great theme song. I also think that the Cranberries- “Dreams” Would be a good theme song. Thanks for the giveaway and I can wait until the release!

  345. Probably, Uncharted by Sara Bareilles

  346. Natalie says:

    Enough to Let Go–Switchfoot
    This is Home–Switchfoot
    We Found Love–Rihhanna
    Let Me Love You–(Glee did it, but I don’t know the original artist.)

  347. Veray Carter says:

    Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum

  348. I already commented earlier, but I though of another song that would fit the beginning of Starcrossed. I love listening to musicals-don’t laugh!-and there is a song from the musical Wicked called “What is this Feeling?” that is perfect for the beginning of the book. Here are some of the lyrics (words are not mine, of course!)

    “What is this feeling,
    So sudden and new?

    I felt the moment
    I laid eyes on you;

    My pulse is rushing;

    My head is reeling;

    My face is flushing;

    What is this feeling?
    Fervid as a flame,
    Does it have a name?
    Yes! Loathing
    Unadulterated loathing

    For your face;

    Your voice;

    Your clothing;

    Let’s just say – I loathe it all
    Ev’ry little trait, however small
    Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
    With simple utter loathing
    There’s a strange exhilaration
    In such total detestation
    It’s so pure, so strong!
    Though I do admit it came on fast
    Still I do believe that it can last
    And I will be loathing
    Loathing you
    My whole life long!”

  349. I would choose “Set The Fire To The Third Bar” by snow patrol ft.Martha Wainwright. Its such a good song and would go nicely with this book!!

  350. Mm its Between two songs. MakeDamnSure by Taking Back Sunday because they hated each other so much in the beginning and then for when they fell in live I would go for I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz

  351. Actually MakeDamnSure by Taking Back Sunday is the perfect song for the whole series.

  352. WOW AN ARC GIVEAWAY!! Your a wicked cool author for doing this Josie.

    I think the “Art of Love” by Jordan Sparks and Gy Sebastian and “Lost and Found” by Leona Lewis and One Republic.

    Good luck to everyone,
    oxox Nas D.

  353. When It’s All in Pieces by Rachel Diggs

    its really an amazing song and its got one of those beautiful/haunting melodies that sticks with you. just like the series! it just seems to fit, especially with how Helen was feeling at the end of Starcrossed.

    Good Luck everyone!

  354. Miranda Lopez says:

    At first glance at my iTunes library, is “Written in the Stars” by Tinie Tempah, since Helen and Lucas have a destiny that started long before them.

    For their chemistry that they have to deny since they are ‘cousins’ “Hummingbird heartbeat” by Katy Parry.

    “Just A Dream” by Nelly, because they can’t be together because of Helen’s mother’s HUGE lie.

    “Tangled Up In You” by Staind, when they were getting close before the mom drama started.

  355. I think a couple of songs could fit great, depending on where they’re relationship is. <3

    1. Love Story- Taylor Swift
    2. Not over you- Gavin Degraw
    3. Your body is a wonderland- John Mayer
    4. Teenage Dream- Katy Perry
    5. Umbrella- Rihanna

  356. I have the perfect song! It’s: Our Day Will Come by Amy Winehouse! But I prefer Katharine McPhee’s version. :) The lyrics match Starcrossed so WELL! :)

  357. Norah Jones – I’ve Got to See You Again

    Lyrics are made for this book!:)

    Thanks for giveaway!

  358. The Wanted – Heart Vacancy
    This song completely describes Helen and Lucas story! The fact they are in love, but there is something that separates them. But in the end they meet each other halfway! That is totally what their love is about for me :)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  359. Michelle says:

    Your Guardian Angel by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus :)

    The chorus really reminds me of Helen, what she has already done for Lucas and possibly will do if it is necessary for Lucas in the future books.

    “I will never let you fall,
    I’ll stand up with you forever.
    I’ll be there for you through it all,
    Even if saving you sends me to heaven.”

  360. Definitely “Almost Lover” by A Fine Frenzy

    I think it expresses Helen’s feelings after she and Lucas “break up”. Helen really had great hopes for her and Lucas, and since she’d never had feelings like that for any other guy, it’s like all her dreams have been shattered which is greatly expressed in this song.


  361. I agree with a lot of the songs listed above, but I also like “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith. I just love the lyrics:
    “I don’t wanna close my eyes, I don’t wanna fall asleep
    ‘Cause I’d miss you baby and I don’t wanna miss a thing”

    Also, “Without You” by David Guetta & Usher: lyrics like “But I can’t accept that we’re estranged” and “I can’t quit now, this can’t be right I can’t take one more sleepless night Without you” are so perfect!
    Copied from

    Thanks so much for the opportunity Josie!

  362. I would choose “Arms” by Christina Perri I think it would fit to the beginning where they meet each other and “Distance” by Christina Perri would fit perfectly to the ending :)
    I can’t wait to read Dreamless!!

  363. India B. says:

    I would have to agree with the many ppl who suggested “We Found Love” by Rihanna. It’s a really good song, and I believe it matches Starcrossed well.
    Looking forward to Dreamless in less than a week!! :)

  364. I would probalky choose selena gomezs a year without rain or the song houdini by foster the people. If you watch the houdini music video, the band doesnt have control over what they do just like the furies controlling the demigods

  365. My song for The Starcrossed series is Fall For You by Secondhand Serenade.
    One of the lines of the chorus “Tonight will be the night that I will fall for you over again” reminds me of this series so much because of Helen and Lucas’ connection to the original Helen and Paris.

  366. I think the most perfectest song ever would be “Next 2 You” by Justin Bieber and Chris Brown.

  367. Christella S. says:

    Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson or Sparks Fly by Taylor Swift

  368. Aleksandra says:

    Never Let Me Go by Florence + the Machine. (:

  369. suveda perikala says:

    Starlight by Muse
    this is, without a doubt, the ultimate fantastically perfect song for Starcrossed Lucas and Helen
    The lyrics are as follows:

    Far away
    This ship is taking me far away
    Far away from the memories
    Of the people who care if I live or die

    I will be chasing the starlight
    Until the end of my life
    I don’t know if it’s worth it anymore

    Hold you in my arms
    I just wanted to hold
    You in my arms

    My life
    You electrify my life
    Let’s conspire to ignite
    All the souls that would die just to feel alive

    But I’ll never let you go
    If you promised not to fade away
    Never fade away

    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations
    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations

    Hold you in my arms
    I just wanted to hold
    You in my arms

    Far away
    This ship is taking me far away
    Far away from the memories
    Of the people who care if I live or die

    And I’ll never let you go
    If you promise not to fade away
    Never fade away

    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations
    Our hopes and expectations
    Black holes and revelations

    Hold you in my arms
    I just wanted to hold
    You in my arms
    I just wanted to hold

  370. ‘Cosmic Love’ by Florence + the Machine love this song!! Thanks for the chance to win a signed arc of Dreamless! Can’t wait to read it!!! :)

  371. Avery Vann says:

    The most perfect song i can think of is Can’t Keep On Loving You (From A Distance) by Elliott Yamin ^_^ It kind of describes the relationship between Lucas and Helen through the Starcrossed. Especially considering the information learned at the end of the book. ^_^

  372. Emily Gilot says:

    A good song to represent Starcrossed would be “Sparks Fly” by Taylor Swift or ” Just a Kiss” by Lady Antebellum. :P

  373. WOW, there are so many song to chose from, and so many that have already been picked. If I had to chose a song it’d be “Breathing” by Jason Derulo or “we found love” by Rihanna.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  374. My theme song would be ‘cosmic love’ by Florence and the machine!

  375. It has to be Florence and the Machines- Never let me go.It’s perfect for Helen and Lucas!

  376. Leann Rhimes – I need you :)

  377. Kiss Me Slowly – Parachute

  378. Kaitlyn says:

    Both “Love Story” and “Long Live” by Taylor Swift remind me of Starcrossed. Also, whenever I listen to Carrie Underwood’s new song “Cupid’s Got a Shotgun” it totally makes me think of Helen. :)

  379. Less than three more days! Just counting it down. (Such an exciting life i have)

  380. Elizabetha says:

    The greatest by cat power ….

    This song is beautiful and haunting … Reflects on one’s powers and humility


  381. Sadly, I haven’t read the first book yet, so I don’t what song to think of. I hope i can still enter, I’m going to start Starcrossed next month and would love to have this book! Thanks for the giveaway!

  382. Maps by Yeah Yeah Yeahs!

  383. one of them for me is Incomplete by Backstreet Boys, it was used recently in something I watched and I just could feel it going with your book/s at least the first one.

  384. Heartbeats – Jose Gonzalez

  385. Merisha Abbott says:

    IDK. maybe Melt by Rascal Flatts :)

  386. For the entire series I think “Drive” by Incubus would be perfect<3

  387. Courtney says:

    This is a tough one with only having read the first book in the trilogy. I guess I would have to say a good one would be “Already Home” by Thousand Foot Krutch. I feel like at this point Lucas is probably feeling similar.

  388. Seize The Day
    By: Avenged Sevenfold

  389. there is so many but i reserve the right to wait until i read the new book ;-)

  390. I think as a theme song I’d either choose: Lasso – Band Perry, for the appropriate lyrics in relation to Helen and Lucas’ romance; or Change – Taylor Swift, for the way they stand up against the hundred regardless of being outnumbered. :)

  391. Crystal A. says:

    I won’t give up – Jason Mraz

  392. I won’t give up by Jason Mraz.

  393. Srinidhi says:

    My love is like a star by Demi Lovato
    Hope you like it

  394. Wait for you by Theo Tams

  395. Kristen S says:

    Definitely Jason Mraz’s “Don’t give up”! I love this song and think it fits the series well!!!:D
