UPDATE AND CHALLENGE:
So, I haven't been quite as productive as I'd hoped. As it stands, I've finished both Mockingjay and Nightshade, so I'm somewhere in the vicinity of 850 pages read. I should be able to get through one more book before the event is over though. Now, for my challenge!
Pick your perfect couple
If you could choose two characters from any two novels, who would you pick as your ideal couple and why? Note: these should be couples that are not already together in their current stories, but rather characters from different novels that you think might be cute together if it were possible!
Here's a few of the couples I would choose:
1. Jace from The Mortal Instruments series and Bryn from Raised by Wolves. I of course enjoyed Jace with Clary, but I was really impressed with Bryn's strength and her ability to adapt to new situations. Clary could be a bit of a pushover at times, and I think Bryn's call-it-like-I-see-it attitude would be a good fit for Jace's alpha personality.
2. Adrian from the Vampire Academy series and Sophie from Hex Hall. This may stem in part from my unwavering loyalty to Dimitri who is my ultimate choice for Rose, but I also really like Adrian and want to see him happy. If possible, I think Sophie would be a good fit since they both are struggling with a magic they don't really understand while an outside threat forces them to jump into their powers head-first.
3. Spade from First Drop of Crimson and Callia from Entwined. I enjoy all of Jeaniene Frost's vampires, and Spade was no exception. I did not, however, love Denise as much as I had hoped. She could be a little whiny at times and often ran off to try to figure things out herself which ended up causing more problems than it solved. Callia is more level-headed and I think would be a fun romantic partner for Spade.
To enter the challenge, just leave a comment with your new pairing, but be sure and leave the name of the book as well so we all know exactly to whom you're referring. Please make sure to leave an email address as well if it's not in your profile so I can contact you. The challenge will run through the end of the Read-a-Thon which is Monday morning. One winner will be chosen and will receive a copy of Infinite Days, one of my favorite reads so far this year! Giveaway is open to US residents only.
From Barnes & Noble
"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one."
Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.
It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste.
Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.
I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn't Rhode.
But Justin was...daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.
I never expected to be sixteen again...then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me...I can't wait to see what couples all of you choose!
