Have you ever been listening to music or watching t.v. and a book comes to mind? I do that all the time. So, let’s talk about a few. Keep in mind I’m going totally off of vibe not necessarily content. Essentially, I’m talking similar vibes across different formats.
House of Salt and Sorrows
House of Salt and Sorrows and Mariners Apartment Complex are both haunting and atmospheric. I can almost feel the salt in the air when I listen to the song, and I had that same feeling when I read House of Salt and Sorrows. This is the perfect combination for an eerie coastal vibe.
Mariner’s Apartment Complex
While I didn’t love Episode Thirteen it did give me the same vibes I have when watching Ghost Adventures. It’s a story about a paranormal t.v. crew that goes missing in the middle of filming. It does get a little funky toward the end of the book, but I did enjoy reading about the t.v. crew from behind the scenes. There were characters that reminded me of the people from Ghost Adventures, and it took me back to the feeling of discovery this show for the first time.
This one is pretty obvious. Slewfoot follows Abitha who draws suspicion from her village after her husband dies under mysterious circumstances. Abitha has to learn to provide for herself and W.I.T.C.H. by Devon Cole totally captures the vibe I felt while reading about her development. However, Slewfoot eventually takes a dark turn that the song doesn’t, considering it is a horror story. But the vibes are there.
Lastly, we have probably my weirdest comparison, but I even mentioned it in the review for Cackle. But Cackle has the same vibe as Gilmore Girls, just creepier. The town that Cackle is set in sounds exactly like Stars Hollow. There are farmers markets, coffee shops, and all sorts of festivals. Of course, there’s also the fact that one of the main characters might be a witch and possibly influences the town, but it still has cozy vibes despite it all.
So those are a few of my same vibe different format faves. Do you have a movie or song that makes you think of a book? Let me know in the comments.
