Liv, Forever
Title: Liv, Forever
Author: Amy Talkington
Publisher: Soho Teen
Date of Publication: March 11, 2014

When Liv Bloom lands an art scholarship at Wickham Hall, it’s her ticket out of the foster system. Liv isn't sure what to make of the school’s weird traditions and rituals, but she couldn't be happier. For the first time ever, she has her own studio, her own supply of paints. Everything she could want.

Then she meets Malcolm Astor, a legacy student, a fellow artist, and the one person who’s ever been able to melt her defenses. Liv's only friend at Wickham, fellow scholarship kid Gabe Nichols, warns her not to get involved, but life is finally going Liv's way, and all she wants to do is enjoy the ride.

But Liv's bliss is doomed. Weeks after arriving, she is viciously murdered and, in death, she discovers that she’s the latest victim of a dark conspiracy that has claimed many lives. Cursed with the ability to see the many ghosts on Wickham’s campus, Gabe is now Liv’s only link to the world of the living. To Malcolm.

Together, Liv, Gabe, and Malcolm fight to expose the terrible truth that haunts the halls of Wickham. But Liv must fight alone to come to grips with the ultimate star-crossed love.

Instead of making a playlist for the book, this is a bit different. I'm posting the playlist featured in the book, the playlist Malcolm made for Liv which he called Liv, Forever. Yes, that's where the title of the book came from. I still have so many feelings left over from reading LIV, FOREVER and I couldn't let go yet so here I am. Here goes!

What a great playlist, right? Clearly shows Amy's great taste in music (She wrote about music for magazines before!) Hope you enjoyed (and made you interested/buy/mark as to-read LIV, FOREVER) the songs!

About Amy Talkington

Amy Talkington is an award-winning screenwriter and director living in Los Angeles. Before all that she wrote about music for magazines like Spin, Ray Gun, Interview, and Seventeen (mostly just as a way to get to hang out with rock stars). As a teenager in Dallas, Texas, Amy painted lots of angsty self-portraits, listened to The Velvet Underground and was difficult enough that her parents finally let her go to boarding school on the East Coast. Liv, Forever is her first novel.


  1. Oh this is a brilliant idea! I don't know of any of those songs, so, heh, education time for moi. ;) I've kind of wanted to research all the songs mentioned in books before, like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but frankly I'm too lazy and It's been a looong time since I last read that.

    1. That's good! Maybe I should start doing that for the books I read with playlists. Thanks for dropping by, Cait!
