Once Upon A Read-A-Thon!!!

Mini Challenge Part 1:  Post about your favorite fictional couple and enter to win a copy of Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder!

My favorite fictional couple are Kate and Curran.  I enjoy their rocky, challenging relationship and I love the way he tricked her into being his mate.  Not that I am into tricks, but I like it in a story.  We all look for that truly fascinating and fulfilling love.

Mini Challenge Part 2:  Post about a crossover couple you would love to see and enter to win a copy of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Crossover couple...Val Shapiro from Bite Me and Try Me and Tunstell from Gail Carriger's Soulless.
Val is so tough and Tunstell is so sweet, but tough enough to be with someone like her.

Jenn at Book Crazy asked us to:
What I want you to do, since I am a lover of all things music and photo related is to pick one - or both - and put them together!!

Does that make sense? HMM, lets see if I can explain better, basically pick your favorite book and/or character and pair it with a song and/or photo that reminds you of the person or setting in the book!

I have so many books that I love - but if I have to choose one, and apparently I do, I will choose one that hasn't been made into a movie and therefore the people are still in my own head.  I am choosing: Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher by Bruce Coville.

What book are Kate and Curran in?

Beverly said...

Alison - Kate and Curran are in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. The first book is called Magic Bites. They are fantastic! You should for sure check them out.

I like Romeo and Juliet. :)

I started Magic Bites but I had too many review books and set it down (I was too stressed with my books I HAD to read to enjoy it). But I did kind of get to meet them!

Hey, Beverly! Saw your post and dropped by. Nice looking blog!

Beverly said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by!

Magic Bites is on my wishlist. I've checked it out from the library a couple of times now, but my hold requests always seem to come in when I am in the middle of several other books & I've had to return it before reading it both times. I probably just need to purchase Magic Bites instead of relying on the library because I am excited to read about Kate & Curran. :) Thank you for participating in our favorite couples mini challenge!
