Chameleon by Kelly Oram blog tour

Don't you just love it when you're reading a really good book while listening to music, and a song that perfectly matches the mood of the chapter you're on comes up? It's probably one of the most magical things in the word. We're having the author of Chameleon on the blog today and she's going to share her Chameleon soundtrack with us. 

Excuse me while I give the floor to Kelly Oram...

I’m one of those writers that needs silence in order to write. I can’t concentrate if there’s music playing. I have a musically oriented brain and if there’s a song playing—any song—I am singing and dancing along and getting nothing else done. I do however always have some sort of playlist that reminds me of whatever book I’m currently writing. I just have to listen to it during non-work hours.

Sometimes it’s lyrics that make me associate a song with a book, but with Chameleon it was more about the sound or the mood, so this soundtrack turned out to be pretty random.

This was supposed to be a top ten list, but my Chameleon soundtrack has 12 songs on it so you’re getting a top 12 list. And here they are, in my personal playlist order… The top 12 songs that remind me of Chameleon. 

1. Too Close by Alex Clare
2. E.T. by Katy Perry
3. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
4. All The Things She Said by Tatu
5. 24 by Jem
6. Grenade by Bruno Mars
7. Here With Me by Dido
8. Come Undone by Duran Duran
9. Burning In The Skies by Linkin Park
10. Say It Right by Nelly Furtado
11. Extreme Ways by Moby
12. Echo by Trapt

Sounds like an emotional whirlwind, right?! All of the songs on the list sound pretty dynamic and powerful, and I can't wait to listen to this playlist while I read Chameleon.

Chameleon (Supernaturals #1) by Kelly Oram
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Published June 25th 2013 by Bluefields
Goodreads / Amazon USA / Barnes & Noble

For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction.

As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help.

Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.
