Mini Challenge 1: Music PairingThe mini-challenge is hosted by My Not So Real Life and the point is to match up your current read (or any other book) with a song that you think matches the book.
The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Dig by Incubus
I've paired these two together because I think the song perfectly describes the relationship budding between the two main characters Ananna and Naji. Through a series of trials, they are learning to rely on each other, whether they want to or not, and that is doing good for both of them. We've already seen Ananna "dig" Naji out of his gloominess a little and Naji is beginning to "dig" Ananna out of feeling like she is uneducated. I think this song really works for the bond of friendship that is growing!
Mini Challenge 2: Virtual Travels
This mini challenge is hosted by Ex Libris and the challenge is to pick a book and post pictures of what you think the setting looks like.
Again, I'm going with my current read which is The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clark.
Here's what I think Lisirra, the grand desert city, might looks like:
The desert they walk through surround Lisirra:
The cannon with the river cutting into it:
The Ayel's Revenge, the pirate boat, Ananna and Naji get on:
Though The Isle of the Sky haven't been described, here's what I'm picturing:
Mini Challenge: Page 99This challenge is hosted by My Seryniti and the point is to look at your next TBR book and take a peek at page 99. Then all you have to do is talk about your impressions.
My pick is Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
