Summary for When the World Was Flat (and we were in love):

Looking back, I wonder if I had an inkling that my life was about to go from ordinary to extraordinary.

When sixteen-year-old Lillie Hart meets the gorgeous and mysterious Tom Windsor-Smith for the first time, it’s like fireworks — for her, anyway. Tom looks as if he would be more interested in watching paint dry; as if he is bored by her and by her small Nebraskan town in general.

But as Lillie begins to break down the walls of his seemingly impenetrable exterior, she starts to suspect that he holds the answers to her reoccurring nightmares and to the impossible memories which keep bubbling to the surface of her mind — memories of the two of them, together and in love.

When she at last learns the truth about their connection, Lillie discovers that Tom has been hiding an earth-shattering secret; a secret that is bigger — and much more terrifying and beautiful — than the both of them. She also discovers that once you finally understand that the world is round, there is no way to make it flat again.

An epic and deeply original sci-fi romance, taking inspiration from Albert Einstein’s theories and the world-bending wonder of true love itself.

When the World was Flat (and we were in love) Playlist ~ by Ingrid Jonach

These are songs that inspired me while I was writing When the World was Flat (and we were in love). If you have read the book you might want to have a listen. And, if you are currently reading it, I have included a note on when you should listen to each song.

Crossroads by Don McLean

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 15. Listen again after Chapter 21.

Can you remember who I was?
Can you still feel it?
Can you find my pain?
Can you heal it?

Then lay your hands upon me now
And cast this darkness from my soul
You alone can light my way
You alone can make me whole
Once again.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Crossroads' by Don McLean

The Scientist by Cold Play

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 21. Listen again after Chapter 29.

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart.

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'The Scientist' by Cold Play

A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 21.

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'A Thousand Years' by Christina Perri

Across the Universe by Rufus Wainwright
(originally by the Beatles)

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 22.

Sounds of laughter

Shades of earth

Are ringing through my opened mind

Inciting and inviting me.

Limitless undying love
Which shines around me like a million suns

And calls me on and on across the universe.

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Across the Universe' by Rufus Wainwright

Blue Jeans by Lana Del Rey
[Caution: Coarse Language]

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 22.

I will love you 'til the end of time

I would wait a million years

Promise you'll remember that you're mine

Baby, can you see through the tears?

Love you more

Than those b*tches before

Say you'll remember. Oh baby, say you'll remember

I will love you 'til the end of time.

~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Blue Jeans' by Lana Del Rey

Every You, Every Me by Placebo

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 23.

All alone in space and time
There's nothing here, but what here's mine
Something borrowed, something blue
Every me and every you
Every me and every you
Every me...
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Every You, Every Me' by Placebo

Not Gonna Get Us by Tatu

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 24.

Starting from here, let's make a promise
You and me, let's just be honest
We're gonna run, nothing can stop us
Even the night that falls all around us.

Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us
they're not gonna get us.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Not Gonna Get Us' by Tatu

Someone Like You by Adele

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 26.

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn't stay away
I couldn't fight it
Had hoped you'd see my face
And that you'd be reminded
That for me, it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Someone Like You' by Adele

In my Place by Coldplay

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 26.

I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn't have crossed
I was lost, oh yeah.

I was scared, I was scared
Tired and under-prepared.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'In my Place' by Coldplay

What I've Done by Linkin Park

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 26.

In this farewell
There's no blood
There's no alibi
'Cause I've drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousand lies.

I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'What I've Done' by Linkin Park

One Moment More by Mindy Smith

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 27.

Hold me
Even though I know you're leaving.

Tell me that someday you'll be returning
And maybe
Maybe I'll believe.

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'One Moment More' by Mindy Smith

Lonely Day by System of a Down

Recommendation: Listen after Chapter 29.

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life.

And if you go, I wanna go with you
And if you die, I wanna die with you.

Take your hand and walk away.
~ Lyrics excerpt from 'Lonely Day' by System of a Down
