Match the Urban Fantasy Hero(ine) to their Faithful Sidekick Challenge (#BoutofBooks)

Bout of Books 2

Button designed by TaraSG


Welcome Bout of Books read-a-thoners!  Ali and I are happy that you could join us for a little Bout of Books 2.0 challenge and giveaway action.  I hope you guys are doing waaaaay better than I am.  So far I have totally sucked at trying to achieve my goal.  Work was brutal this week BUT, I’ve finally got some down time and I’m hoping to get some reading done over the next couple of days.  Better late than never right?  Right!  We’d love to drop by and see how you guys are doing.  So leave a link to  your updates in the comment section so we can swing by and cheer you on!


Anywho, on to the good stuff.  Thanks to the awesomesauce Missie (who let me borrow her idea) I’ve come up with a challenge for those of you who consider yourselves to be Urban Fantasy aficionados.  The challenge is simple.  Type in your ‘how to find me if I win’ info and then match 10 Urban Fantasy heroes/ heroines to their bad ass sidekicks.  Easy peasy!  Now for some rules.

  • You must be listed in the Bout of Books 2.0 Master List
  • Contest is open INTERNATIONALLY (aka anywhere Book Depository ships to)
  • One (1) winner will receive their choice of book(s) valued at up to $15 USD
  • Challenge/giveaway ends on Sunday, October 30, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. EST
  • Winner will be chosen using only from all entries with all the correct answers.  (Sorry y’all.  Wouldn’t be much of a challenge if you could still win even though you answered wrong, right?)


Ready?  Of course you’re ready!  Go make me proud!

    I'm not doing that well on the read-a-thon also, I just started book #2 yesterday. *sigh* But I'm having fun nonetheless!

  3. @Celine - Glad you enjoyed it! Can't go wrong with UF right? ;)

    @Carla - Having fun is the most important part of the read-a-thon. Besides, you at least on book two. I haven't even hit chapter two of my first book.

    Thanks for participating ladies. =)

  4. Fun challenge! This is the first challenge I've done for Bout of Books. Good luck with your reading.

  5. @Colleen - Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for participating. LOL! And thanks for the luck. I think I'm definitely going to need it.

  6. Jen I am totally bombing this read a thon. I think I have crashed and burned. There needs to be a prize for that..hummm I have an idea for the next read a thon. :)

  7. Thank you Google! :) I thought this was going to be harder than it really was...which makes me happy! I assumed hard because I don't read much UF!

  8. @Jen - Bomb away my friend. Bomb away! ;) No crash and burning allowed though. Can't wait to hear what you're plotting and scheming. =)

    @Jacinda - LMAO! When in doubt go to Google has become one of my mottos.

  9. I FINALLY completed this challenge. What a great idea. Too bad I haven't read any of these books. aaahh!

    Thanks for hosting this challenge. This read-a-thon has been a lot of fun. I haven't read any books today, at least not yet. Ooops!
