Stephanie Meyer had an incredible influence on my music taste. No, hear me out. Her website (which, incredibly, has the same layout it had in 2008) has playlists for each Twilight novel (yes, even the fifth-never-finished book).
She introduced me to Coldplay, Muse, and Linkin Park properly when I was in sixth grade. It’s freaking weird.
And our tastes are still compatible. I haven’t looked at her website in six years and lo and behold she has OK Go and Placebo songs on her playlists. OK Go and Placebo are some of my favorite bands.
She also likes Arcade Fire. It doesn’t make the Twilight series any better but I have more respect for her now lmao.
