Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Update/Wrap Up and Mini Challeges

Hey this is my first update for the the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon hosted by the sweet Lori Pure Imagination, Candance at Candace's Book Blog and Angela at Reading Angel. This is the last day for the read-a-thon.

Books read:

Solstice by Simon Holt- This book is awesome I should have my review up soon!

Hunger by Jakie Morse Kessler- I also read a few pages of this book I am trying to get in thi sI should this soon to it only 174 so that should be a easy read.

Mini Challeges:

Violet at The Eager Readers wants us to do the following.
We are giving away two books featuring couples we love, and all you have to do to be eligible for both prizes is to post about your favorite fictional couple and a crossover couple that you would like to see. A crossover couple is a pairing that brings together two characters from unrelated books. You can post your responses on your blog, facebook, or twitter & then share the links to your responses in the Mr. Linky boxes below so that we can all stop by to read about your choices. You are welcome to post about several of your favorite fictional couples and/or crossover couples, but each participant may only submit one link per mini challenge contest. If you answer both questions in a single blog post, please share that link in both of the Mr. Linky boxes below so that you will be entered in each half of this mini challenge. Thanks! One winner will be selected at random from each Mr. Linky list once the read-a-thon is over on July 14th, 2010 at 11:59 PM. (Note: This contest is international as long as the The Book Depository ships to your location. You can check that here.)

My Favorite Fictional Couple / Crossover Couple
I love Clary and Jace from the Mortal Instrument series there chemistry is undeniable and when they find out that they might be sister and bother I was so heartbroken because I knew that could never love each other like a bother and sister could. If I could have a cross I would choose Kelley from the wounderous Strange series and Kinnen from the Wicked lovely series I wonder how long that realsionship would last.

Kate at I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read wants us to do the following.
1. Choose a song (sung or instrumental) that represents a chapter that you are currently reading or have read during the read-a-thon thus far. If the book was turned into a movie, and this chapter was shown, what music would you want in the background to convey the emotion or environment.

2. List the book/author/chapter that you choose along with the song(s) you choose.
3. Give a quick synopsis about the chapter (No SPOILERS please!) or the circumstances that take place and why you chose the song to represent it.

I am curently reading Low Read Moon by Ivy Devlvin I am on chapter 1 and Avery is dealing with a great loss and she's having a little flashback of the day . I think All around me by Flyleaf is good for this chapter because of the emotions she's feeling.

Cynthia at A Blog About Nothing wants us to the following.
In the comments tell me the name of a book or series that you would love to see get made into a movie or a TV show and your cast choices for the main characters.

Jenn at Book Crazy want us to do the following

We all have a favorite book, right?
We all have a favorite character, right?

What I want you to do, since I am a lover of all things music and photo related is to pick one - or both - and put them together!!

Does that make sense? HMM, lets see if I can explain better, basically pick your favorite book and/or character and pair it with a song and/or photo that reminds you of the person or setting in the book!

The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collions - here's two people I would love to be in The Hunger Games movies.

My favorite book right now is The Soulstice by Simon Holt( my real favorite book is The Hunger Games but i could think of any song for it.)
I choose The Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi I know that is a strange pick put i like kinda what his say expect for the first part of the song were his taking about being on drugs but the rest is good because Reggie is trying to protect her family and friend put she has to deal with the fear and the vours so she is trying to pursue peace and happiness by faceing the vours and her fears and even though Kid Cudi is dealing with his fears in a whole nother and Illegal way he still is tying to get to the happiness it wants. I also like the dream/space like feel!
