Challenge 8 is to create a fan mix for a character or characters from a book and is hosted by Preet at A written Rhapsody. In this challenge we must pick two activates from a list of song related tasks. I decided to go ahead and use my current read, The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen.
First, I choose to find a music video that would relate to my book. Er, well I found a couple…
I couldn’t resist the Archie video.
This is kind of from Joesy to Adam.
And because Josey is really just suffocating under her mother and her nothing life, I give you Orianthi’s version of Suffocated.
Then for a playlist for The Sugar Queen.
Would it be completely cheating if I wanted to use Sugar Queen for an artist name? Because I think that would be an awesome name for Josey if she started signing. She’d sing these sappy ballads that just make you sob, like some of Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson’s sadder songs.
Crap. I went out last night and woke up today hungover and completely forgot about Friday’s 4pm challenge until right now. Nuts. Looks like I missed one then. Double crap. Oh well. We’ll move on to Saturday’s 8am challenge.
Challenge 7 is match the quote to the book hosted by Benji at The Non Reluctant Reader. There are five quotes to match.
Quote One: “You love me. Real or not real?” I tell him, “Real.”
Quote Two: “Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
Quote Three: “I’m sure I’ll feel much more grateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn-on.”
Quote Four: “We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.”
Quote Five: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”
Our book choices for matches are:
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Game of Thrones by George Martin
I will, of course, wait until the game is over to post my answers. I’ve already filled out the form and done my readathon duty. Now to go read some more…
