Read-a-thon Hour 9

Hour 9 Challenge: Soundtrack Song.
Book title: The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling
Soundtrack Song: “Piece of my heart” by Janis Joplin
Why I chose this song: There are six different tales in the book and "The Warlock's Hairy Heart" definitely stood out to me.  It's about a young talented warlock who feels that weakness and foolishness come to his friends who love, so he secretly uses the Dark Arts prevent it from happening to him.  I don't want to give away the end of the story, but I will say song's intensity and lyrics are as impassioned at the story's ending.  Read it yourself and you'll see!

  2. In a Story Book

    At night when sunshine goes away,
    And it's too dark for me to play,
    I like to come inside, and look
    For new friends in a story book.
