Book Playlist: Addicted to You (Addicted #1) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie

We’re attracted to music with great beats, rhythm and beautiful (often poetic) lyrics. Some of the songs below we listened to as we were writing the book, but others remind us of Addicted to You when it shuffles through our iPods. We’ve included our favorite lyrics for the first five songs. Here’s the list!

1.    “Pasadena” by Modern Skirts (This band is near and dear to our hearts. They originate from Athens, GA and just played their last concert ever at Athfest. This song will tug your heartstrings, no lie.) Best Lines: I've been taking so much care of her, and I'm sick  / Now who takes care of me, oh / I've been thinking maybe I should jump in the sink / And swim right down the drain whole

2.    “Trembling Hands” by The Temper Trap. Best Lines: So throw me a line / Somebody out there help me / I'm on my own / I'm on my own / Throw me a line / Afraid that I have come here / To win you again / With trembling hands

3.    “Wildest Moments” by Jessie Ware. Best Lines: You and I, blurred lines / We come together every time / Too wrongs, no rights / We lose ourselves at night

4.    “On the Rocks” by Grieves. Best Lines: All of this will hold you  / Down onto the ground until you’re crawlin’ on the gravel  / Like a regular guy / Oh all of this will hold you, down onto the ground  / Until you’re drowning in your sorrows with a bottle of rye

5.    “Gloria” by Laura Branigan. Best Lines: Gloria, you're always on the run now / Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow / I think you've got to slow down before you start to blow it  / I think you're headed for a breakdown, so be careful not to show it

6.    “Lose Your Soul” by Dead Man’s Bones (Ryan Gosling’s band)

7.     “Animal” by Miike Snow

8.    “Let It Go” by Fossil Collective

9.    “Two Fingers” by Jake Bugg

10.    “Lost in My Mind” by The Head and the Heart

Addicted to You (Addicted #1)
Release Date: 07/01/13

Summary from Goodreads:
No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But when they go on a family boat trip, surrounded by open seas and limited male bodies in sight, Lily’s confronted with a big fear. Only one guy onboard can fill her addiction, and she’s sworn off going there with Loren Hale ever again.

Now the only person who can truly help her can barely help himself.

**This is a New Adult book recommended for readers 18 and up**
