Bookish Playlist: Nice Try, Jane Sinner

Hey Bookworms!

I know I’ve been really absent lately and I’d like to apologize. Last week was a busy week with school that I forgot to write posts. On top of that, on Friday there was a storm that resulted in a power outage. When the power came back on, I guess my neighbors called their cable company to fix their connection, but they ended up messing around with the power lines and somehow our Internet, cable, and phone pretty much shut down. I haven’t had Internet access all weekend and hopefully a technician will come today. As of now, I am writing as many posts as I can before class starts.

I won’t keep you any longer – Let’s go on with the music!

*Disclaimer: I will try my best to avoid spoilers – at most there will be minor details given away, you have been warned. Songs/Artists mentioned within the book will be marked with (AM) for artists and (SM) for songs.


  1. Achy Breaky Heart – Billy Rae Cyrus (SM)
  2. Stand Back – Stevie Nicks (AM)
    • Jane mentioned Robbie liking Stevie Nicks and I felt like this song matched their complicated relationship.
  3. Black Sheep – Metric (AM)
    • This is probably the only song I know from Metric (Thank you Scott Pilgrim).
  4. Brain Damage – Pink Floyd
    • Kind of reminded me of when Jane had a revelation and opened up about her past.
  5. Does He Really Care? – Together Pangea
    • Reminded me of Robbie
  6. Born to Be Wild – Steppenwolf
    • For the new, colder Jane.
  7. Cherry Bomb – The Runaways
    • Jane’s theme song – She’s rebelling against her parents and is finally doing something she wants to do without anyone’s permission. She’s branching out on her own after the Event.
  8. Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now – The Smiths
    • This one’s more of a dark joke – Jane’s parents are very Christian and in my sick, twisted mind I found this amusing.
  9. Karma Police – Radiohead (AM)
  10. She’s leaving Home – The Beatles (AM)
    • Jane mentioned liking the Beatles and I couldn’t find another song more fitting for her situation of leaving the nest and being on her own for community college.

That’s all for now folks! I am truly sorry for being absent. I will use my break to catch up on posts. Let me know: have you read Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke? What did you think? If you have, are you just as confused as I am with the ending (with R)? (Please no further spoilers).

Until next time!
