Soundtrack Saturday – Swoon At Your Own Risk by Sydney Salter

February 26, 2011

Soundtrack Saturdays an opportunity to share a song I think would fit on the soundtrack for the book I’m currently reading.

Feel free to join in! Either leave your soundtrack pick or the link to your soundtrack post in the comments.

From the author’s website:
You’d think Polly Martin would have all the answers when it comes to love—after all, her grandmother is the famous syndicated advice columnist Miss Swoon. But after a junior year full of dating disasters, Polly has sworn off boys. Now she’s just trying to survive her summer job at Wild Waves western-themed water park (under the supervision of ex #3 Sawyer Holmes) and focus on herself for once. So Polly is happy when she finds out Grandma is moving in for the summer –think of all the great advice she’ll get.
But Miss Swoon turns out to be a man-crazy sexagenarian! How can Polly stop herself from falling for Xander Cooper, the suddenly-hot skateboarder who keeps showing up at Wild Waves, when Grandma is picking up guys at the bookstore and flirting with the dishwasher repairman? And why, despite her best intentions, does Polly keep letting boys get in the way of her relationship with her best friend Jane?

Soundtrack Song: “Smooth” by Santana (feat. Rob Thomas)
We’ve been hit with an end-of-season cold snap, so along with reading Swoon At Your Own Risk I’ve been listening to my summertime playlist to turn my mind to warmer times. If there’s one song that always makes me think of sweltering summer days, it’s “Smooth”.  Plus the line “I could change my life to better suit your mood” definitely goes with Polly’s need to change her interests to match those of whatever guy she’s into at that particular moment.

If you’re in cold winter land, I hope this song warms you up a bit!

What song would you add to the soundtrack for this book or the one you’re currently reading?

    i just listened to another book with a character named xander (matched by allie condie) but am not sure how i feel about the name. as for swoon at your own risk, it sounds like fun–perfect for my beach bag in a few months. sadly, i have to say that i’m not a fan of the song ‘smooth’. don’t stone me, okay? i get so nervous from the santana/rob thomas mash-up. i’m a freak, what can i say? lol.
