Some of the extras in the Divergent Paperback include Veronica Roth’s playlist for the book!
1.“Starts With One” by Shiny Toy Guns
This song gets me in touch with the good aspects of Beatrice’s chosen faction.
2. “Chasm” by Flyleaf
And this song gets me in touch with the bad aspects of Beatrice’s chosen faction.
3. “Come Alive” by Foo Fighters
This is the love interest’s song for Beatrice.
4. “Again” by Flyleaf
And this is Beatrice’s song for the love interest.
5. “Help I’m Alive” by Metric
Beatrice’s initiation song.
6. “We Die Young” by The Showdown
This might as well be the theme song for Beatrice’s chosen faction—it’s what they would choose for themselves.
7. “Canvas” by Imogen Heap
This is the “riding on trains” song.
8. “Running Up That Hill” by Placebo
The tone of this song matches the tone of much of the book, for me.
9. “Sweet Sacrifice” by Evanescence
I was listening to this song when the first scene I wrote (in chapter 6) popped into my head. That scene led me to the world of the book and its basic plot.
10. “Arise” by Flyleaf
A powerful song that’s perfect for chapters 38 and 39.
