T10T: I’m With The (Book) Band

T10T is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Click on the band titles to get it from your local indie!



Echo After Echo

A mystery murder on stage… I imagine this band to be big on performance and long notes. They might experiment a little with clothing styles and shadow acting.

Hidden Figures

The female mathematicians behind NASA… I imagine their songs to be about staying strong and taking no BS. Some nerdy lyrics and traditionally professional outfits.

Killing November

We are training to become assassins… This band would be super secretive and likely be a front for a mission.

Saving Hamlet

Time traveling to save two productions of Hamlet… I imagine Shakespeare clothes, songs that tell stories of madness, and constructing papier-mâché skulls on stage.


Heart Of Darkness

This mixed opinion classic follows a sailor that sells ivory to some mad dude… The musicians are broody goths with that one dude that always wears white. They use the sea as a metaphor for women and for their psyche. 

Bread And Roses, Too

This is the one book from this list I’ve actually read. It’s an MG book following a young girl and boy during the strikes in the Industrial Revolution. This would be a children’s choir whose first hits would be directed by the parents but move to independence as the adults strike, collecting donations.

The Glass Castle

This is a memoir of a nomadic-turned struggling family when the children realise they have to live on their own. This would be a family band singing about making it work, and loving your fam even when it’s difficult. 

The Merciful Crow

A fugitive prince ask the chieftain to protect him after faking his death… This would be a weird band that everyone believes to be high all the time, and some followers form a cult of Prince Jas. They sing about magic with a straight face in a literal tone.



Hummingbird Dagger

A carriage ride results in an amnesiac Beth… The songs would appear innocent to the passing listener, but the meanings leave you haunted. 

Have you read any of these books? What other book titles would make cool band names?
