ICYMI, Harry Styles' self-titled debut album is already out (it's on Spotify, too!) and we can't stop listening to it! And if, just like us, you know you need another way to help you cope with these feelings you have for Hazza's ~*BEAUTIFUL*~ new music, we suggest you read these books while listening to his album. Enjoy!
- Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park
Play: "Ever Since New York" and "Two Ghosts"
When the words music and reading come together, how can we ever forget to mention this best-selling title? In Eleanor & Park, two teens who feel like they're misfits and outsiders bond over comics and their love for Joy Division (listen to "Love Will Tear Us Apart" now!).
- Rob Sheffield's Love Is a Mixtape
Play: "Sweet Creature" and "Only Angel"
Just like Har's album, Love Is a Mixtape will transport you to a time when love and mixtapes intersected. Rolling Stone contributing editor Rob Sheffield brings readers to those years when he met the love of his life until the time of his death using his favorite mixtapes.
- Sarah Dessen's Just Listen
Play: "From the Dining Table"
Just Listen will remind you of something we might have forgotten already in the age of social media: to listen. It's what exactly Owen does for Annabel in this book, as he ends up telling her the truth at all times. Of course, music plays a huge part in the story, too, because it's one of the things that holds these two characters together.
- Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist
There's a reason why a lot of teens love this novel. It combines two of our favorite things: heartbreak (breakups) and good music which Nick and Norah share in a span of one night as they look for the next great band in New York City.
- Anna Todd's After
Play: The entire album (!!!)
Of course, what's a list of must-read books while listening to Harry's new album without the Harry Styles fan fiction by Anna Todd. Need we say more?
