Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly book meme hosted by none other than Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.. It's a weekly blog hop in which fellow book bloggers can connect and get to know each other a little better :) 

This week's question asks:

You are a matchmaker ~ your goal: hook up two characters from your two favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?

Love this question! Took some thought and some help from my pen and notebook... Here's what I came up with:

I would have to choose Lena from Beautiful Creatures and Po from Graceling. Lena has two different colored eyes and is completely different in a world that expects normal. She's constantly at war with herself, always trying to discover if the evil within her will outweigh the good. Po also has two different colored eyes, so Lena wouldn't feel so alone. He's also different in a world that wants to use his power for its own gain. He keeps his secrets, as does Lena, to protect himself and those he loves. He's strong, sure of himself, and sees the good in other people. (Sorry Katsa, but Po already convinced you that your powers could be used for good...) Ethan is a good guy, but I think Po would be stronger at holding his own against the wrath that Lena can cause and convincing her that she doesn't have to give in to her darker side.

So, how do I think it would go? Well the two are from different times and different worlds, so I think it would be pretty funny at first. Lena would be more powerful than any Graceling in Po's realm, so I think he'd be taken by surprise. Most of the people we meet in Lena's world are either human or related to her, so I think she'd be relieved to meet someone with powers and strangely colored eyes outside her trusty little circle of family Casters. I think they'd notice each other, definitely. Whether or not they take it beyond friendship... hmmm... :)

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. I like it! I'm a big Po fan though, so I may be biased :)
    Here's my Match

  2. Good answer and reasoning. It'd be interesting to see what kind of eyes their children would have.

    My favorite friday. Hope you swing by!

  3. I loved both of those books - interesting pairing. But the way you put it, it makes sense.
