Book Blogger Love-A-Thon Day Two is finally here! YAY! Day one was SO much fun, even though I was a little late to the game. Oopsies. Forgive me? Anyways, I'm super excited to start Day Two's Mini-Challenges. I will be updating this post throughout the day that way I don't blow up everyone's feeds with separate posts so be sure to check back! Thanks again to Alexa and Katelyn for hosting! You ladies rock my socks and I love you both! <3
Mini-Challenge #4: Mash-Up!
For this challenge, we ask you to mash-up your bookish life with a non-bookish hobby/passion/talent that you have in real life.
I sort of already do a weekly feature that is Mash-Up on my blog, which is Cover Puppies. I mashed up my love for my dogs and YA book covers and recreate the covers using my dogs! So if you haven't seen them yet, there is a tab at the top of the page that has all of my Cover Puppies posts linked in one convenient location. BUT I still wanted to participate in this challenge, so I came up with another Mash-Up for my love of skating! Below I'll list the top five fictional characters I'd want to go roller skating with AND the top five authors I'd want to go roller skating with!
Top Five Fictional Characters
1. Trevor from Pivot Point.
Because *le sigh*
Isn't that reason enough?
2. Dee from the Lux Series.
Because Dee is such a fun character!!
I love her enthusiastic personality and she would make anything fun to do!
3. Adrian from the VA novels.
Because watching Adrian try to master roller skating with his sarcastic remarks over constantly falling would be hi-lar-i-ous.
4. Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games.
Because what in the world would she wear? Talk about entertainment.
5. Warner from the Shatter Me series.
Because I can't even finish this thought without fanning myself..
Top Five Authors
1. Kasie West
Because I'm Kasie West's biggest fan, I tell you. But I'm not sure much skating would happen, because I'd be too busy fangirl-ing and begging for another Pivot Point novel and another The Distance Between Us novel and just more books in general from The Writing MASTER!
2. Sarah J. Maas
Because Sarah needs to get out of her writing cave, and breathe some fresh air, and maybe I could convince her to act like she was Chaol while we skated. ;)
3. Wendy Higgins
Because Wendy has a brilliant personality!
(Does anybody get that reference, or did I just show my age?)
4. Rainbow Rowell
Because HELLO, it's Rainbow Rowell and she's adorable.
5. Tahereh Mafi
Because we would keep it weird.
We would keep it awkward,
And we would totes make it walk-ward.
(Or Sk-awkward, because we would be skating.)
Mini-Challenge #5: Letter to Yourself!
Dear Future Becca,
As you know, I suck at these things, but I just want to make sure you are still blogging for the love of reading, and also make sure you're keeping it sk-awkward! Hopefully Cover Puppies is still something you do weekly, because I'll be honest, those posts are the bomb diggity, if I say so myself.
That's all I can think of. Like I said, I suck at these things.
