Update Hour 5-9 - Book, Score, Soundtrack Challenge.

It’s hour five and I am taking a break to take part in a challenge… I have finished Cameron Dane – Finding Home and am now Halfway through Joely Skye – Feral…

One of Hour five challenge is

So here is your challenge:
1. Choose a song (sung or instrumental) that represents a chapter that you are currently reading or have read during the read-a-thon thus far. If the book was turned into a movie, and this chapter was shown, what music would you want in the background to convey the emotion or environment.
2. List the book/author/chapter that you choose along with the song(s) you choose.
3. Give a quick synopsis about the chapter (No SPOILERS please!) or the circumstances that take place and why you chose the song to represent it.

 

Sum Up…

1. The Song that came to mind while I was reading this book was When the music’s is forgotten – Deadman. I thought that song summed up the entire book..

 

 

He could actually hear the sound of police sirens
approaching, and that was a relief. Help would be there
soon, people equipped to help him without putting
themselves at great risk. His eyes closed briefly, and when he
opened them, he saw Cyrus coming toward him, only to be
stopped by Stacy, who put a hand on his arm.
“He needs help!” Cyrus pulled away from her, starting to
come closer, but Jaxon shook his head, pressing himself
back against the wall.
“Cyrus, stay away….” His voice sounded weak. He knew
it, and he knew he had to look pale given the amount of
blood that was pooling around him.
“Jaxon—”
“Stay the hell away from me.”
“You need help—”
“I’m HIV positive,” Jaxon snarled. At least he thought he
snarled. He only knew he had said the dreaded words out
loud, and he could clearly see the shock on Cyrus’s face in
the second before several uniformed police officers and
medics burst into the room.

Description:

Jaxon Hawke is content with his solitary life, successfully staying sober and coping with being HIV positive. He operates his own business with his best friend, Donna, and spends his free time volunteering at a local homeless shelter. But his carefully crafted routine is shaken when he meets Cyrus Carson, and Jaxon isn’t sure he can adjust. Life is about risk—Jaxon knows better than most—but if he doesn’t overcome his fears, he’ll lose the man he has come to love

 

3.

“Cyrus—”
“Play the fuckin’ martyr if you want, but I think you’ll
find it’s damn lonely.”
“You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Really? Well, I think I do. I think you tell yourself you’re
protecting others, but you’re just trying to protect yourself.”
“From what?”
“From taking a chance. Taking a risk. Living. Loving. All
the above.”
“You can believe what you—”
“It’s not what I believe, Jaxon. It’s what I know, and
maybe one day you’ll get your head out of your ass and see
the truth.”
“And what truth is that?”
“Everything about life is a risk, and I….” He blew out a
breath, shoulders slumping, as if he suddenly felt defeated.
“I love you, Jaxon, but the fact is, I can’t make you love me
back, and I’m sorry you can’t let yourself see just how
remarkable you are and how much you have to offer the
people around you.”
