Music Mondays (#3): The Program + Rascal Flatts

music mondays

Music Monday is a weekly meme started by Athena @Total Book Geek. For the meme, you find a book/scene in a book and match it with a song; and trying to avoid spoilers.

Hey guys! I’m really liking this meme! I’m definitely going to try my best to continue this weekly! I hope you guys are liking my posts also! The instructions are very simple in how you do this meme.. Just choose a book or a scene from a book and match it with a song and explain why you chose the 2!

This week I’m featuring:


the programThe Program by Suzanne Young
Series: The Program #1
Publishing on: April 30th 2013
Genre: Dystopia, Science Fiction, Romance, Young Adult
Pages: 403

In Sloane’s world, true feelings are forbidden, teen suicide is an epidemic, and the only solution is The Program.

Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.



This week I’m matching this book with Rewind by Rascal Flatts:


If you guys haven’t noticed, the book and picture with song at the very top come from Instagram.. I’ve participated a few times in memes dealing with this kind of meme… So I’m kind of cheating, but I wanted to add it to my blog as well and I know some of you guys aren’t following me there.. Plus this is a really fun meme and I’m really liking it so far!

Anywho, again yet another perfect match! Basically in this world, everyone commits suicide. If your close to the person who committed suicide your basically going to do the same as well. To avoid doing so, the Program comes and collects you and your given pills which basically erase your memory. You don’t remember anything. You basically start your life over again. Well, our 2 main characters, Sloane and James have to fight the Program because someone close to them has committed suicide. Sloane wants so badly to remember her best times with James but she knows she will loose her memories at some point.. Here’s a snip of the lyrics:

Wish I could reach up and reset that sun
Reverse these wheels go back and re-pick you up
Went by so fast oh so sweet
Make me wanna remake a memory
Wish I had me a time machine

It seems like a perfect fit! What do you guys think? What are some songs that remind you of this book? Let’s talk about it!

See you guys next week! :)
