Quench Your Pop Culture Thirst!
“State of Grace” —
For All Time by Shanna Miles
“State of Grace” is about the beginning of a relationship. Taylor sings of the possibility of new love and being excited about the prospect. That’s why I had to go with For All Time by Shanna Miles. It’s a beautiful story where the characters embody that message perfectly.

“Red” —
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
While “State of Grace” was about new love, “Red” is about the passionate and all-consuming feelings that come with toxic relationships. And if that doesn’t describe the love-hate relationship between Lucy and Joshua in The Hating Game, I don’t know what does.

“I Knew You Were Trouble” —
After by Anna Todd
I don’t think there’s a better book series that embodies “I Knew You Were Trouble” than this Harry Styles-fanfiction-turned-best-seller. The After series follows Tessa and Hardin’s toxic relationship through its highest highs and lowest lows.

“All Too Well” —
It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard this song multiple times, whether by our own volition or not. You know what it’s about. “All Too Well” goes through the lifespan of a relationship that still affects Taylor long after it’s over. It Ends with Us is the perfect fit for “All Too Well.”

“The Lucky One” —
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
The book highlights the highs and lows of Evelyn’s life and how they affected those around her. I think it’s an interesting read and meshes well with the story told in “The Lucky One.” Honestly, this Swift song feels like it was written specifically for Evelyn.
