Three of a Kind is a series that lists books, shows, movies, podcasts and even music that pair well together. Each post highlights a particular theme and lists fictional worlds (and music) that revolve around the theme. I don’t drive but if I did, these would certainly be the reason I’d have countless speeding tickets.
This post is in honor of the Formula One championships. I’m an avid fan and whee, I can’t wait for the second round tomorrow! (9 April)
READ: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Ronan + cars + racing said cars
Highlights: A hundred white Mitsubishis.
The second book in the series The Raven Cycle, The Dream Thieves is thrilling AF. Yes, the abundance of cars as well as the chapters with Ronan’s BMW are perfect for this theme but more so, this book has a rush of dark energy that stays with you long after your read.
WATCH: Mad Max: Fury Road
Violence while driving + racing through the desert + big bulky monster automobiles
Highlights: So. Many. Stunts.
I love the characters and how gritty the entire movie is. It’s a chase across the apocalypse ridden land. The monster-like automobiles are so cool and the violence that ensues between the chase is excellent.
LISTEN: Songs by Halsey
Drive + Gasoline + Hurricane
Highlights: “All we do is drive”
While her newer songs are so not my style, her album Badlands is perfect for this set. There’s a lot of adrenaline in the songs and with titles like Drive and Gasoline, the mood is set.
What would you add to these clutch burning numbers?
