Blood and Salt Blog Tour: Playlist + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Blood and Salt! Today I have Ash's playlist to share with you - and don't forget to enter the awesome giveaway! To follow the rest of the tour, check out the schedule at the bottom of the post.

Blood and Salt (Blood and Salt #1)
Author: Kim Liggett
Genre: YA Paranormal/Horror
Release Date: September 22, 2015
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR


Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn in this one-of-a-kind romantic horror.

“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in—blood and salt.”

These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time.

Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own.

As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself—and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in—blood and salt.


Ash is an enigma. I love how complicated she is. She's not perfect, which is why I adore her. She's feminine, but she has a really hard edge.

This is her playlist:

1. I Cut Like A Buffalo-- The Dead Weather
"I look like a woman, but I cut like a buffalo." This song fits Ash to a T.

2. July Flame-- Laura Viers
This song is dreamy and lyrical-- just like Ash.

3. Rebel In You-- Supergrass
This song has always reminded me of Ash.

4. I Never-- Rilo Kiley
I can see Ash singing this in the shower. It's got that old-school feel that I know she'd love.

5. Bad Blood-- Beck
This is just one of those songs Ash would listen to on repeat and drive her brother crazy with.

6. Some Sweet Day-- Sparklehorse
Ash would be completely into Sparklehorse. The lyrics alone are breathtaking.

7. Gasoline and Matches --Buddy Miller and Julie Miller
I can picture Ash singing this in the car with all the windows rolled down.

8. What You Do To Me-- Blakroc
Another song with that old-school feel, but with a modern edge.

9. Use Me-- Holly Golightly
This song really captures how Ash feels about her brother's warning about Dane.

10. And It Spread-- The Avett Brothers
I think Ash would dig this band.

11. Lust For Life-- Iggy Pop
I can see Ash belting this at the top of her lungs. Who doesn't love Iggy Pop?

12. Push That Knot Away-- KT Tunstall
This song has a pent-up quality, that I know Ash would be able to relate to. She's spent her whole life trying to push away the feelings inside of her.

13. Boys Wanna Be Her-- Peaches
A great song to close out this list. Ash is a badass. I want to be her. Yes, I do. 
At sixteen, Kim Liggett left her rural midwestern town for New York City to pursue a career in both music and acting. While attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Kim sang backup for some of the biggest rock bands in the 80′s.
After settling down to have a family, she became an entrepreneur, creating a children’s art education program and a travel company specializing in tours for musicians.
She’s married to jazz musician Ken Peplowski, has two beautiful teens, and a very neurotic dog that drags her through Riverside Park everyday on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. (Author info and pic taken from Goodreads.)

  1. I saw this book at my local bookstore. I came so close to picking it up, but I changed my mind last minute and went with a different novel. I'll definitely have to check this out though. It sounds like a great book.
