THE BOOK OF LIFE playlist  <warning: contains spoilers>

As many of you know, I write to music. It inspires me, gets my creativity flowing, and keeps my emotions on point when I have to return to a chapter after a long day at work.

Here is the entire TBOL playlist. I put the available songs up on Spotify.…/1…/playlist/0AcJFYUqdmy5ljwKukISqR

Some weren’t available, so I’ve listed them all out in case you want to find them for purchase–or if you are in a place where Spotify isn’t available to you.

Please note, the songs are in book order, so they essentially “follow the plot” of the story. As a result, there may be spoilers for those of you who haven’t read it yet. Song name is first, followed by artist.
