Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’: Guess the book by the 90s song title

Let’s play a game!  Inspired by Book Riot‘s “We Didn’t Start the Pale Fire: Books Summarized By 80s Song Titles,” I thought I’d make my own list of book-summing song titles — drawn from the 90s, since that’s the decade that represents my childhood.  And the books will be those previously reviewed here at Postcards, specifically the ones on the Favorites page.*

Ready?  Go!  (you can click on each song title for the answer)

*  As of this post, anyway.  I’m counting The Hunger Games series as one book, as well as The Last Unicorn book + graphic novel, respectively.  And excluding Castle Waiting Vol. 2, since I didn’t actually talk much about that one.
