BLOG TOUR: Atlantis Rising by Gloria Craw
Welcome to the Official Blog tour for Atlantis Rising by Gloria Craw!
Young Adult Paranormal Romance
January 6, 2015
Summary from Goodreads:
I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.
Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…
If I were to design a playlist for Atlantis Rising…
I would definitely include Safest Place by Echosmith. It would be Alison’s theme song. It’s about hiding a truth which is what she’s been trying so hard to do. The strong base and rhythm of the song remind me of her grit and her determination to do what it takes to keep the ones she loves safe.
I would totally choose Up Town Funk by Bruno Mars as Ian’s theme. It’s catchy and funny but still a serious piece of work. Ian is all of those things. And if you were to ask him if he’s hot, he’d probably say…yep. So the lyrics, gotta kiss myself- so pretty, seem to fit.
Pumping Blood by NONO reminds me of Brandy. It’s bright and upbeat like her.
I’d choose Fire Breather by Laurel for Nikki’s theme song. It’s smooth and dark, one of those songs you can’t get out of your head after hearing it.
The mood of In My Veins by Andrew Belle reflects how I felt writing the first third of the book. It’s a subjective choice, but for me, it fits.
Demons by Imagine Dragons suits the feel of the second third of the book.
Walk, Come with Me Now by Kongos would be my choice for the last third of the book.
I’d play Please Don’t Say You Love Me by Gabrielle Aplin as Alison struggles with her growing feeling for Ian.
Ariel, by Anathema… would be on the list somewhere.
And finally, I’d suggest Dark Doo Wop by MS MR. Start listening to it around page 268 and...burn, burn, burn along with the story.
