Challenge: Bookish Battle Royal – My Life in Books
- Choose three or more fictional characters as combatants – they can be haphazardly picked or themed (for example, I went with badass classic literature protagonists)
- List three strengths and weakness for each contender (feel free to skip this step if you’re using social media to participate in Bout of Books i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads…)
- Determine who would come out victorious and give a little explanation why you think they would win – get creative with the outcomes!
- Link in the comments and if you tweet about this challenge make sure to use the hashtag #bookbattleroyal in addition to #boutofbooks because I want to see all your dueling characters!
This challenge sounds amazing and creative yet evil! How can I put characters battling against each other when I adore them? Even the villains?
Okay, here we go:
Alex from Delirium | Ethan from Beautiful Creatures | Jace from City of Bones
This doesn’t sound like a fair battle, does it? Still, I immediately liked these three characters.
Oh God! Why? Why did I chose these three amazing characters? Because I’m a masochist, that’s why. So, for me the winner of this battle is…
… *drum roll*…
Yah, I know he already had the advantage of being a kick-ass warrior since he was a toddler! But, let’s face it, he’s the hardcore coolest of the baddest bad-ass 😉
Challenge: Books You’re Looking Forward To – River City Reading
And after a bloodbath between Alex, Jace and Ethan, nothing better than to relax and share with you a few of the books I’m looking for to read. However, I chose a theme and decided to pick up five (5) coming out this year or already out 😛
