A Playlist for Clean by Juno Dawson

When I was reading Clean by Juno Dawson I was desperate for a soundtrack. There's something about the story, especially the scenes when Lexi is in London, that just begs for a beat behind it. I've been listening to music more as I read, so I teamed up with Aoife at Pretty Purple Polka Dots to create a playlist.

In the past we've teamed up to do a fan cast of Candy by Kevin Brooks and we'd planned to do a fan cast of Clean, but the rights were snapped up before it was even published so we're crossing our fingers and leaving the casting to the professionals.

The struggle to not just have it all CHVRCHES and Halsey for my contributions was unreal.

The Tracklist


I Miss You
Clean Bandit

Never Ending Circle

Pedestrian at Best
Courtney Barnett


Johnny Cash

The A Team

Follow Me
Uncle Cracker

Have you read Clean?

Clean by Juno DawsonAdd to Goodreads
A razor-sharp, adrenaline rush of a novel from award-winning author Juno Dawson, Clean is Gossip Girl meets Girl, Interrupted.

'I can feel it swimming through my veins like glitter ... it's liquid gold.'

When socialite Lexi Volkov almost overdoses, she thinks she's hit rock bottom.

She's wrong. Rock bottom is when she's forced into an exclusive rehab facility.

From there, the only way is up for Lexi and her fellow inmates, including the mysterious Brady.

As she faces her demons, Lexi realises love is the most powerful drug of all ... 

It's a dirty business getting clean ...

Addiction and redemption, love and despair. Clean will have you hooked from the first page.


  1. This book sounds really, really intriguing, I've seen the cover around but never stopped to read the synopsis until now. I think I'll have to read it at some point and your playlist really makes me want to, I love Halsey and Birdy's The A Team! :)

  2. Sounds like you’re having a great time while you read 🎶 📚 I think this is a rocking playlist, I love CHVRCHES, Birdy & Clean Bandit so I’d def be listening to this list! This book sounds quite interesting too, I’d give it a read if I found a digital copy.

  7. I love that you created a playlist to match the book! I’m listening to it now and really like Never Ending Circles and Clean Bandit is always so catchy. The book sounds really intriguing too, plus the soundtrack has given me a feel for the story already. Thanks for sharing! Great post Cora <3 xx

  8. I find this intriguing because, as a writer, I create playlists for my WIPS, but I've not heard of a reader making one before! The novel sounds really interesting, so I'll grab a sample and see if it's my cup of tea. :D

  9. I read this book with Let me Live by Anne-Marie on repeat and it really felt like the perfect song for Lexi in so many ways.
