Hello and Welcome to my first stop on the Because of Low Blog Tour! I am so happy to have a guest post from author extraordinaire, Abbi Glines. Her post features one of my favorite post topics, music. Namely, the favorite music of the main characters from the book. Be sure and read the entire post to find out how to enter the giveaway. Now I'm going to hush and let Miss Abbi do her thing. Enjoy!

Because of Low - Character’s Favorite Songs

Cage (Marcus’s roommate and Willow’s best friend) - “When I’m Gone” - Three Doors Down
Asking someone to love you no matter what screw ups you have is selfish but it’s intense. You want them but you want it all. Even when you aren’t there you want to know they will be waiting on you to return. Loving you when you’re gone.

Preston (Marcus’s best friend) - “Wall to Wall” - Chris Brown
Because it’s bad ass. The girls love me. I feel his pain in this one.

Willow (Female main character) - “All I Wanted” Paramore
It’s real. Everyone has wanted that one person out of their reach. You felt like it was simple. You were only asking for one thing. That one person. But it was unattainable and there was never a way to change that. No matter how badly you wanted it to be different.

Marcus (Male main character) - “I’d Come For You” Nickelback
The guy made a mistake. We all make them. It sucks. The song says he’ll come for her if she ask him to. But he is waiting on her to decide because he has royally screwed up. It is eye opening and every guy who has ever been in love has been there.

Amanda (Marcus’s little sister) - “Fix You” - Coldplay
Dealing with pain,betrayal, and anger. This song talks about how someone needs fixing when things come along to knock you on your ass. When everything seems perfect and then life can jerks the rug out from under you, this song gives you hope that someone someday can fix what you’ve become.

Tawny (Willow’s older sister) - “Follow Me” - Uncle Kracker
It’s fun and let’s face it, this happens. Sometimes relationships fall apart and there is someone else who can make you smile again. Someone who makes life fun again.

And there you have it. What a great list. And having read Because of Low, I can say those are great choices.

  1. Ahaha Preston: Because it's bad ass!! I lie that! I have ears a dew of these songs so I think it's a great choice for each character! Can't wait to read Because of Low!

  2. Oops it's meant to say "I love that" instead of lie lol!! And also that "ears a dew" is meant to be I have heard a few! I'm on my iPod so it's being very annoying! I also tweeted:

  7. Great giveaway! I've read great reviews for Because of Low and would love it. Great playlist too!


  8. This is seriously the first time I remember hearing of Because of Low. How lame of me, apparently I've been under a rock or something (which would explain why people are always telling me to crawl back under my rock, I suppose).

  9. Oh Lordy,now this makes me even more excited to read Because Of Low!I know most of the songs,ain't heard of Uncle Kracker,but really like Follow Me.Thanks for the tour n the give away! xoxo

    Based on their answers, Low and Marcus have to fall in love and stay together forever!! Marcus is so mature, of course we all make mistakes but forgiveness is also important!

    I hope Willow's not talking about not being able to get Marcus!!
