Have you ever wondered if it was possible to get the same kind of feeling you get from TWICE‘s music another way?
If you have, don’t worry. We go you covered.
Here’s are list of five young adult books that we consider to be perfect fits in evoking the same feeling as when you are listening to TWICE’s Music Videos.
1) “Like OOH-AHH”/Warm Bodies by Issac Marion*
The Book: R is a zombie who feels something missing in his undead life when he meets Julie, a living human, and realizes he wants to live and love again. He and his zombie friends join forces with the humans to defeat the Skeletons who rule their destroyed world.
I’m waiting for someone who can make me feel.
Something like never before. (That’s who I’m waiting for).
I’ll wait no matter how long it takes.
I just wanna fall in love.
What to do, make me speechless.
Make me like ooh-ahh ooh-ahh.
Bla la la la, stop talking, start doing.
Make me feel huh (Like ooh-ahh).
* chosen in part due to sharing the zombie-post apocalypse theme with the song.
2) “Cheer Up”/Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi
The Book: When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.
Sorry I couldn’t respond.
I was meeting my friends, shy shy shy.
I can’t really meet you right now, sorry.
I’ll call you a little later.
Cheer up a little more.
A girl can’t give her heart too easily.
That’s how you’ll get to like me even more.
I’ll act calm, as if it’s nothing.
So you won’t know that I like you.
just get it together.
and then baby, cheer up.
3) “TT” /The Twilight Saga: New Moon by Stephanie Meyer
The Book: Bella Swan is on the cusp of her 18th birthday and blissfully happy with her undead beau Edward Cullen. While celebrating her birthday with Edward’s family of “vegetarian” vampires, a frightening incident convinces Edward that he’s simply too dangerous to be around the love of his undead life. So he and his family decide to leave the town of Forks in order to ensure her safety – not knowing that his decision has left her angry, sad, and depressed.
I’m like TT, just like TT.
You don’t know how I feel. So mean. So mean.
I’m like TT, just like TT.
Tell me that you’d be my baby.
Do you realize what’s going on inside me?
Don’t disappear from my view like this.
This time for sure, I’ll be the first to talk talk.
But it’s only in my head, always only in my head.
4) “Signal”/Roswell High (series) by Melinda Metz
The Book: He’s not like other guys. Liz has seen him around. It’s hard to miss Max — the tall, blond, blue-eyed senior stands out in her high-school crowd. So why is he such a loner? Max is in love with Liz. He loves the way her eyes light up when she laughs. And the way her long, black hair moves when she turns her head. Most of all, he loves to imagine what it would be like to kiss her. But Max knows he can’t get too close. He can’t let her discover the truth about who he is. Or really, what he is….
Sending you a sign, sending a signal,
But it won’t go through.
Giving you a look, trying to make you notice.
But you don’t get it.
I’m so frustrated, going crazy.
I don’t know why this is happening.
I’ll gather up my strength once more and
Send you a sign, send a signal.
Didn’t realize it at first, but
At some point I started to like you.
How could you be so unaware?
When will you stop being so obtuse?
Treating me only as a friend.
That is not what I want.
5) “Likey”/ To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han
The Book: Lara Jean is someone who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.
I’m just looking at you
But I couldn’t say anything
Come a little closer
Please know my heart
I don’t wanna hide it anymore
Oh wait, wait
I’m finally getting something from you
All day, my mood goes back and forth
Up and down, now I’m dancing.
My heart’s fluttering, me likey.
