This is something that I really find interesting – when sights, sounds, smells and feelings connect and remind you about something.
I know that once I sprayed on this really yummy perfume, and about half and hour later I found out I had a stomach bug. Now I can’t even spray that delicious scent without wanting to hurl.
But anyways – today is about books. What senses have I connected to with certain books?
A major one I’ve realized recently is that whenever I hear “All Of Me” by John Legend, I think of Crash into you and These Broken Stars. This is because I was absolutely obsessed with the song while reading these books, and I think they are both oddly fitting to the theme of the song.
Now whenever I hear the Legend burst out in All of Me, I think of those characters and relive some of those initial feels. It’s the best. Especially since I also loved those stories. :3
Another, slightly weird one is Yoplait French cheesecake yoghurt and the Inkheart series. I was eating this yoghurt like I drink water while reading Inkheart. Now whenever I eat cheesecake flavoured yoghurt, I think of Maggie and her father, scary bald men, quirky old bookish ladies and handsome red head men with scars.
What sense have you connected to with books? Any quirky ones? I’d love to hear about them!
