Veronica Roth Is Writing Detergent! But What Music Is She Listening To?

If you follow Veronica Roth on tumblr you might have seen her  “Detergent” writing song that was posted yesterday. The song she linked to was “What the Water Gave Me” by Florence and the Machine.

Here it is:


We always love listening to Veronica’s writing songs and trying to figure out the mood or type of scene she might be writing.

What about you? Does this song bring a type of scene to mind for you? What characters might be involved in the scene? Do you have a song you think would be perfect for “Detergent“?

Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Well the song is about suicide (Virginia Wolf reference) among other things so hopefully no one is going to hurt themselves. Its very gut wrenching song who knows what could be happening in the 3rd book :l I love this song btw

  2. OMG, that’s a GREAT song. I only wish / hope the movie writers use this song as part of the Official INSURGENT Movie SoundTrack.

    That would be utterly HOT!!

  3. Detergent? For real? Or am I the last one in on the joke?

    • 🙂 Veronica Roth started joking around about calling it Detergent almost a year ago and we couldn’t resist making our own book cover and going with it. It obviously won’t be the real title, but it will be fun while it lasts!

  4. I think for the hole trilogy: I will be, from Avril Lavinge and Leona Lewis.
    it’s a great song and each time I listen to it I think about this books.
