YA Author’s Official Playlists (Part 1)

I remember a couple of years ago I was super into book playlists that authors made. I think it’s a lovely touch for authors to create book and character-related playlists and share them with their fans. I have a Tumblr account, so I’ve stumbled over a bunch of these over the years, and I thought it would be nice to post a couple of YA compilations if anyone is interested.

Just to clarify: None of these book playlists were created by me – they were put together by their respective authors.

Also, a lot of these playlist links are to Spotify and Soundcloud, so this might not be very useful to people without an account, but you can make a free account if you wish!


1. Rainbow Rowell


Luckily for me, finding Rowell’s playlists was incredibly easy, as she has kindly posted all her playlists on Spotify.

A bit of a weird post, but I love these and I hope you do too! Of course, there are hundreds of fan-made playlists on Tumblr, Spotify, Soundcloud, and 8tracks which are equally as awesome. If you liked these book playlists then I’d definitely check these sites out!
