Thursday Throwdown

Thursday Throwdown is hosted by me [Amber] of BOOks In ChAIns. It's a new weekly meme where we have 2 contestants in 4 different categories BAttlE It OUt to be the champion of their category

The goal is to give more exposure and promote discussion and love for each contestant [and blog awareness] :D. The winner really doesn't matter. I'll post a monthly Throwdown results and a final one at the end of 2010 to see how far we've gone.

 The categories!!:
  • Characters: Which is your favorite, can kick more a$$, has the man/woman you want most, etc. Whichever one you LOVE based on YOUR criteria! [post your reasons why on your blog--or comments :D]
  • Covers: Pick the one that speaks most to you. They won't always be in the same genre or sub-genre though.
  • Authors: We're not basing decisions on looks! Sorry, we review, not comment appearance [unless it's of their book cover!!]. To avoid, think of who have you read most of, enjoy reading, always buy their book when you see it at the bookstore, have met, etc.
  • Books: This one [along with characters] will be a little more difficult because not everyone reads all the books. If you have read it, which one did you enjoy more, or left you with stronger emotions? If you haven't, what one are you more likely to read?
You can post the above on your own blog and your choice in who should win in each category [if you don't have a blog, leave your answers in the comments section]! PLEASE LEAVE A LINK TO YOUR POST IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I can only count the votes that are attached to my post. [Or I'd go cRaZY! trying to get everyone].

Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris
[B&N Synopsis: Spiked with a "frothy fusion of romance, mystery, and fantasy" (Publishers Weekly), this "deliciously fiendish...increasingly riotous series" (Dallas Morning News) sends the supernaturally gifted cocktail waitress to New Orleans, where she has to deal with the legacy of one of her own family and a host of potentially dangerous characters.]
On Mystic Lake by Kristin Hannah

There, she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower who is unable to cope with his silent, emotionally scarred young daughter. Together, the three of them begin to heal. But just when Annie believes she’s been given a second chance at happiness, her world is turned upside down again, and she is forced to make a choice that no woman in love should ever have to make.]


Contest closes 12:00am [PST] Friday 4/25/10. Feel free to keep posting with links to your discussions after the closing time, but the votes won't count [sorry] :D. At this moment, there isn't a giveaway, but if you have an idea email me at booksinchainsblog@gmail.com.  Thank yo!

[I got the idea for the "Thursday Throwdown" from a local Seattle radio station--99.9 KISW The Rock. Jolene does a 9 o'clock Cockfight with bands--local/professional. I "googled" the idea and waited 1 week to see if any of my blogs I follow did the same sort of thing and came up with nothing. Please, please, PLEASE tell me if you see anything similar. Thank you!]
