The first two weeks of 2017 have come and gone, and I am extremely pleased with my reading progress. Last week, I finished The Hobbit by J. R. R Tolkien. I had a mass market paperback copy laying around that I bought … Continue reading
I was inspired to create this list by Book Riot. Each season, Kelly Jensen puts together a list of bookish things, and I thoroughly enjoy each and every one of them. (Here’s the winter one, for example.) This list will not repeat … Continue reading
In this first week of the year, I managed to complete a fair amount of reading. I am currently about 3/4’s of the way through The Hobbit by J. R. R Tolkien, and read the majority of that amount over the … Continue reading
The 7th annual End-of-Year Book Survey is hosted by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner. (I love that blog name!) The questions made me curious, so I figured I would share my results with all of you. 2016 Reading Stats Number of … Continue reading
I was inspired to create this challenge by Max over at WellDoneBooks on Youtube. In a recent video, he mentioned that one of his goals for 2017 was to read more short stories. What I like about this goal … Continue reading
It somehow occurred to me that a) I had not posted to this blog in over a year *gulp* and that b) 2016 is over in the next two days. At first, I thought 2016 was a fairly disturbing year. … Continue reading
So today’s B.O.B challenge is so much fun. I encourage you all to leave your answers in the comments below after mine, because I’m sure you will all have an opinion on this.
Cynthia from http://www.bookbinges.blogspot.com/ asked us to:
- Pick villains from two different books that you would love to see fight each other. It can be from any genre and it doesn’t even have to be a physical fight. It could be a verbal one as well.
- Give a short reason why you think these villains should fight each other
Ok, so I’m hoping comics can count here but how about Loki vs. Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles?
The reason? Well, they both have powers of illusion and deception. (Also, I’d secretly want Loki to win because, ahem, well, all I can picture is
gorgeous Tom Hiddleston and tell me you don’t want to see him take down that annoying and ruthless Levana…)
Now, if we were speaking about protagonists and not antagonists, here are my picks:
Celaena Sardothien vs. Hermione Granger
Yeah, that’s a weird combination, I know. But hey, the classic strength vs. brains match-up is quite interesting, and both characters are bad-ass in their own ways.
So who are YOUR picks? Would you bring popcorn to watch either of my match-ups? Let me know in the comments below!
