Kicking Off a New Season with XOXOXO

Hello all! It's been nearly a year since I updated this blog, so I've decided to try something new yet again. I've signed up to do a blog tour. I'm new at this, so forgive me if I screw things up a bit. The book is called XOXOXO by Bethany Lopez.

This playlist was chosen because it shows the arc of the story. The story starts with Melissa still feeling sad about Brian, and then goes into some emotional issues with her family. She has wonderful experiences with her friends, and starts to believe in the possibility of love again. It ends with happiness, hope, and possibility. All of the songs are relevant to the story and the feelings I had while writing it.
Fix You by Coldplay
Addicted to Love by Florence and the Machine
Set Fire To the Rain by Adele

Melissa has learned a lot since her freshman year began, but it isn’t over yet! Her world is about to change again with the birth of her new sibling, and she has to figure out how she will adjust to being the eldest of five kids. She, Jess, andJimmy are inseparable, and she is having a fantastic time although she can’t help but miss Brian as she tries to learn how to deal with his relationship with Layla. Everything seems to be happening at once and that is when she is introduced to Ben Campbell, a senior at Dearborn High, who becomes an interesting distraction as he helps her deal with the new developments in her life.
