Play That Soundtrack
description

There is nothing like music to set a certain mood, remind you of an event or enhance that perfect scene in a movie. This challenge is all about music of some of the best fantasy/sci-fi movie soundtracks.

How to Play
For this challenge you get the opportunity to make up your own tasks if you want to! That’s right – for all those times when you thought I have the perfect task for this challenge – now is your time. Don’t worry there is an example task if you don’t want to make up your own. Make sure you post your task so everyone can see what you came up with (and maybe copy it)
Simple create a task that fits the song in some way – it can be obvious or personal but if it isn’t obvious tell us why you created this task for the song. Then read a book that fits.

Rules
Complete at least 5 tasks to get the Vampire Heart
Rereads are allowed
No minimum page count
One book per task
All genres welcome
