Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon: The Dating Game Mini-Challenge

Hello everyone! How is everyone doing with the Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon so far?
Are you all ready for a super fun book challenge? Yes? Well today I will be hosting a bookish mini-challenge for you all. For those of you who are not signed up for the read-a-thon here is still time. If you visit the link below you can sign up and read with us as well as enter to win some great books. 

This challenge is called The Dating Game. The idea is to choose two different book characters to go on a date. Although each character must be from two totally different books or series. Example: Edward Cullen (Twilight series) and Kaylee Cavanaugh (Soul Screamers series). Once you know who you are going to choose then your next step is to tell me where they will being going on the date. Your welcome to post a image of a certain place as well. Example: 

Next, I need to know what they will be doing on their date and why you think both characters would make a great couple.  You are welcome to use pictures if you'd like. 
Once you are completely finished you may either leave a comment below or make a blog post. Whichever works for you but be sure to leave a link to where I can find your entry.


The winner will get a choice of 1 of the books below: 
All of the books seen here are brand new and never have been read. They are doubles of ones I currently own. I will also add some great swag items with the book. :)

  1. So, I'm sending Karou, from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and Christian, from the Unearthly series, on a date.

    Where...? To do what...? They are going to a bowling alley. You know, this is Christian we're talking about, this date can only suck.

    Why? Well, I think they make a great couple because she only needs to raise her hands to inflict him pain.

    Yes, this is my serious answer.

    Thanks for the challenge & the giveaway ^^

  4. I am going to send Atticus from To Kill A Mockingbird on a date with Marilla Cuthbert of Anne of Green Gables. i think these two need a little love in their life and I am going to send them to the city for dinner and a show.

  5. Followed via GFC/Linky.

    Let's see... I would send Anna from Patricia Briggs' books and Ven from "God Save the Queen" by Kate Locke on a date. They're both werewolves, but from different worlds.

    I would send them here, because everyone needs a beach getaway. Maybe they could watch dolphins or just watch the waves and relax.

    I think they would get along because Ven is a very caring guy, and Anna could have used someone like him when her character was introduced to readers. Her mate, Charles IS a great guy, but he was hard for her to get used to at first, and I think Ven is much friendlier.

  6. Great challenge! My answer is here :)

  7. You know what? I have my The Farseer Trilogy's books (by Robin Hobb) right in front of me, and if there is someone who needs a break is Fitz, the main character. Poor guy, everything bad happens to him and he is sometimes in a depressing mood as a result. I'm sending him on a date with Izzy Lockwood from the Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare, because Izzy is not prone to feeling sorry for herself and she would snap Fitz out of it.

    I would send them to a nice restaurant, because I think Izzy would appreciate the value of good food and good conversation, but the date would soon get off the track when they started discussing the mortal and devious uses cutlery could have. Next thing I know, they end the night playing paintball, of all things. I think it could let them blow off some steam from their very stressful lives.

    Thanks for hosting!

  9. Cole from Everneath with Charlene from Entangled. They are both good "villains" - they would go...hmm...I feel like they would go to a concert of HIS. He's kind of full of himself and Charlene would totally love dating someone who is "famous"

    Awesome challenge - I'm in the US

  10. Echo from Pushing the Limits and Kayden from The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. They're both scarred from their pasts and need someone to help them. They'd go hiking. :P Kayden would get a kick out of that one.

    Thanks for the giveaway (:
