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!

  1. 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!).

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

Play: "Carolina"

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

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.

  1. 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?

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
