A playlist for your ears

So here's the playlist I made for my first novel. It's a bit of an odd one, 'cos I made it when I was very near the end of writing the book - just to spur me on to reach the end. It also helped me through the pain of editing. A lot of the songs are ones I listened to again and again when I was writing the novel, and some of them are just songs that fit the mood of the story. It's a long list, but that's because I get bored very easily.

Yes, I know Avril Lavigne is on there. Please don't laugh.
