Welcome Renegades and Anarchists!
With the release of Supernova only a week away, I thought it would be fitting to revise and add to my Renegades bookish playlist in preparation for the finale.
First, a quick recap for those who are new or returning after a long break (no spoilers, I promise):
- The Renegades are a group of superheroes who have brought peace after years of chaos.
- Nova hates them for what they did (or didn’t do) and wants vengeance.
- The Anarchists used to rule and brought prodigies (those with super abilities) out of the shadows. Now, they are ex-villians who are shunned by society.
- They are not as dormant in activity as people think.
- Adrian is a Renegade who believes in justice, but he is no longer sure if the Renegades are completely effective anymore.
When creating bookish playlists, I try to include songs that remind me of the book’s plot, characters, and setting. Some songs come to mind easily (*ahem* Renegades by X Ambassadors), but others are only added after I take a deeper dive into the lyrics.
There were two main things that directed me while making my Renegades-inspired playlist: superheroes and Nova & Adrian’s growth. Both focuses kind of go hand-in-hand since the two main characters try to figure out their own views on society and the superheroes that govern it. Nova and Adrain’s romance also played a big part in choosing songs for the playlist because their alter egos are enemies (talk about complicated, right?).
My playlists are always growing and changing with time. If you have any suggestions on what songs I should add, let me know!
Until next time! ♡
