Read Your Own Books Read-a-Thon Mini Challenge

I hope everyone is having a wonderful read a thon. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, Monica from The Bibliophilic Book Blog is hosting this read a thon which starts at 9 AM Friday August 13th and ends at 9 AM Monday August 16th. And I am hosting a mini challenge for this read a thon.

Here is what you have to do:

Pick one book from the read a thon that you have read so far. And then choose three characters from the book (they can be major characters or characters that are rarely in the book-it's up to you). And then you have to find one actor or actress for each character that would be perfect if the book is going to be made into a movie. Overall you will have three actors or actresses picked out to represent your three chosen characters from the book.

And then in a post on your own blog or in a comment below this post, name the title and author of your book and then the names of the three characters you picked and which actress or actors you would pick to play them in the movie version of the book.

There are a few rules though:
1. If your book is already made into a movie-you can't just write down those actors or actresses-I won't count it then.
2. You have to live in the United States (sorry to the international bloggers, but I don't have a lot of money to ship international)
3. You have to be signed up for this read-a-thon (and if you haven't but want to, make sure you do so here). Make sure you don't lie because I will check if you linked your blog to the mr linkey on Monica's blog

Here is an example of what I want you to do, just in case my instructions weren't clear enough (you cannot use this example as your own-I will not count it if you do)

I chose the book Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty


1. Jessica Darling would be played by Evan Rachel Wood
2. Marcus Flutie would be played by Shane Kippel (Spinner from Degrassi)
3. Hope would be played by JoJo

And if you make your own blog post, you can also add pictures. And then leave a link in the comments. If you are also a follower of my blog, Smitten With Books, you get an extra two entries-so please write +2 follower if you are a follower of my blog. But you don't have to be a follower to enter this challenge.

You may be wondering what you will be winning. Well here it is:



An ARC of Firelight by Sophie Jordan. So start leaving comments. This challenge will run from 8 AM Friday August 13th until 8 AM Monday August 16th. So the giveaway will be closed at 8 AM on the 16th. Good luck to all of you and have a wonderful read a thon.

I just finished The Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman. I don't have much to go on because the character development was really poor but just based on age and a little bit of personality I would choose:

Honor Greenspoon - Abigail Breslin

Pamela Greenspoon - Natalie Portman

Will Greenspoon - Jason Bateman.

Oh man! I WANT this book!
Okay, for the Read a Thon I just finished GREEK: Double Date and it's based on the TV show. BUT I've NEVER watched it and the characters on the cover are not familiar so everyone I'll come up with will be different.
Casey- Reese Witherspoon, though she'd have to look her youngest, her personality fits though.
Cappie- A YOUNG Ryan Reynolds. Once again the personality just FITS.
Rusty- Chad Michael Murray but with darker hair.

Fun Challenge!

My favorite of the books I read so far was 9 Rules To Break When Romancing A Rake - which is surprising, because I don't read romance novels very much! Here are my choices:

Callie - Gemma Arterton
Gabriel - Henry Cavill
Juliana - Kaya Scodelario


Thanks for the contest!
