The #WWReadathon is back! But what is it about, you ask? The Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of February 7-14 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun! In the meantime, Bex and April will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon!
To read atleast 3 books (since I’m super busy organizing my sister’s engagement and a national conference both of which happen to be next week.)

The Dating game mini-challenge
The idea is to choose two different book characters to go on a date. Although each character must be from two totally different books or series. Example: Edward Cullen (Twilight series) and Kaylee Cavanaugh (Soul Screamers series). Once you know who you are going to choose then your next step is to tell me where they will being going on the date. You are welcome to post a image of a certain place as well. Next, I need to know what they will be doing on their date and why you think both characters would make a great couple.
I’m thinking of sending Cooper from Tidal by Emily Snow and Echo from Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry on a surfing vacation in Hawaii. They would make a great couple because Cooper is just awesome and someone who can take Echo’s mind off her worries and will take her away from her dad and stepmom when she goes to Hawaii to take surfing lessons from Cooper.

My challenge for you today should you choose to bandy words with me: Compile some Lines of Love to woo us, Or perhaps fill us with sadness, make our hearts bleed perhaps? Or nay give us a laugh that only comedic love can.
The challenge requirements, oh evil things that they are:
♥ In the current book you are reading flip to a random page
♥ Roll four dice, add each die’s number together, the total is your line number(aka line=sentence) [convenient website for dice rolling here]
♥ Make the line romantic in some way. (you don’t have to use the whole line, but at least half of it and whatever you add of your own can’t be more than half the total quote)
Dice rolled – 1 + 1 + 4 + 3 = 9
Sentence: “He takes Esther’s hand in his.”
My take: “He” calls out her name. “Taking Esther’s hand in his”, he kisses it, barely there, a feather touch.
