One of my favorite pasttimes when writing a novel is to, well, procrastinate on writing by putting together a book playlist. This is helpful procrastination, though, because I can almost never write without listening to music. (At least that's what I've convinced myself.)


Here is a selection of songs I listened to while writing the Extraction series. Playlist #1 is composed exclusively of songs from film scores, while Playlist #2 is only songs with vocals. #1 is the one I listened to the most while writing, and the tracks roughly follow the order of the series, in case you'd like to listen along with the playlist while you read!
