There’s no question that Taylor Swift is the queen of both country and pop music, and we’re obsessed with the Fearless (Taylor’s Version) album! Her re-recordings of her older songs are on point, and we love the new additions, too.
An epic album update like this deserves its own book list. So here it is—a T. Swizzle–inspired reading list that captures all the feels from the album. Read up, Swifties!
19 Love Songs by David Levithan
Fearless is a no skip album—you can listen to the entire playlist without skipping a song. This collection of heartfelt short love stories from the author of Every Day is the book version of that. If you’re in the mood for short and sweet stories that will make you swoon, pick up a copy of this collection!
Alma Presses Play by Tina Cane
Fearless is about growing up and figuring out life, love, and friendships. Just like the album, this moving novel follows Alma as she learns where she fits in during the ’80s in New York City. Written in verse with a strong music vibe, this book is perfect for T. Swift fans.
American Royals by Katharine McGee
If America had royals, T. Swift would be one of them. After all, she did date a Kennedy. And because this album is about the ups and downs of young love, fame, and friendship, this novel is the perfect book to read with it.
Coming Up for Air by Nicole Tyndall
One of the main themes in Fearless is self-discovery—figuring out who you are and who you want to become on your own terms. This novel tackles the same themes. It’s about a girl who falls in love for the first time and almost loses herself in the process.
Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye
We love Taylor’s honesty in her music. It’s one of the things that made her so famous. Her songs about unrequited young love make us think of other stories about teens falling for the wrong person. So, if you adore Taylor’s lyrics about pining after the boy who doesn’t know you exist, this will be your next favorite book!
Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon
There’s no question that Taylor has had highs and lows when it comes to dating. And the newest novel from the author of Everything, Everything and The Sun Is Also a Star captures those same feelings. If you’ve been playing Fearless on repeat, add this book to your TBR!
Like a Love Song by Gabriela Martins
A teenage pop star, a terrible breakup, and a reputation on the rocks—sound familiar? If you’ve followed Taylor Swift’s dating life, you’ll know that she’s had her fair share of messy breakups. Plus, she sings about them all the time. If you can’t get enough of Fearless (Taylor’s Version), you’ll love this paperback original rom-com!
My Epic Spring Break (Up) by Kristin Rockaway
Nobody writes a breakup song like Taylor Swift. Whether it’s a traumatic breakup or an amicable one, Taylor has it covered in her album. She also has ah-mazing songs about new love on the album, too. If you’re in the mood for a book that covers all the bases, you should read My Epic Spring Break (Up) next!
Sunkissed by Kasie West
Just like Fearless (Taylor’s Version) gives her lifelong fans a throwback to her earlier days in the music industry, Sunkissed offers readers a chance to relive their Dirty Dancing obsession. Forbidden love at a secluded family camp by a lake? Yes, please!
When You Were Everything by Ashley Woodfolk
We all know how vital Taylor’s friends are to her, so it only makes sense that they would appear in some of her music. But just like romantic relationships, friendships can end. This book tackles the emotional and practical challenges that come with a best friend breakup.
