Blog Tour ~ Everything Under The Sun by Jessica Redmerski ~ Playlist + Giveaway

Greetings,

A warm welcome to the Blog Tour for Everything Under the Sun, the brand-new book by Jessica Redmerski. A book about a world gone under by a virus, survival, and romance (oh my).

For today I got information on the book/author, but I also got a playlist, and finally a giveaway!

Let’s get started on this tour!

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

Time for some tunes! Ready for the playlist?

EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN is a long and intense journey through a post-apocalyptic society, where
two people who meet under terrible circumstances learn not only to work together and save one
another, but to fall in live with each other as well. It’s no doubt that music played an integral role in the
crafting of many scenes throughout the novel.
Here is the playlist for EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN, along with a few notes about which scenes were
inspired by the music, and vice-versa.
PIERS FICCANI – A STORM IS COMING
JAMIE COMMONS – THE PREACHER
HOZIER – WORK SONG – A piece of the chorus: “Lay me gently in the cold dark earth” inspired one of
Atticus’ quotes: “When you die,” I whispered, “you won’t need the soil to hold you, Thais, because I’ll be
right there next to you holding you myself.”
MADONNA – LIKE A PRAYER – One of the sings they dance to in the cabin
THE SOUND OF SILENCE – JOY WILLIAMS FEAT. HUDSON TAYLOR
BOB SEGER – NIGHT MOVES – One of the songs they dance to in the cabin
KATE VOEGELE – HALLELUJAH – The main song I listened to while writing the book; also the song Thais
is always signing to herself
IMAGINE DRAGONS – BATTLE CRY – The arena scene
MUMFORD & SONS – I WILL WAIT – I imagined this song when they were with the gypsies, dancing
around the fire
GIPSY KINGS – TRISTA PENA
LED ZEPPELIN – GOING TO CALIFORNIA – Atticus hears this song in the cabin, while he’s thinking about
Thais.
TREVOR MORRIS – VIKINGS 18 FLOKI APPEARS TO KILL ATHELSTAN – I thought of this song a lot during
the most dramatic and intense scenes.
