Follow Friday

Happy Friday and thanks for dropping by Slush Sleuth!

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read, where we all get together and say "Hi!" This week's question...

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

MWUAHAHAHA. The evil in me loves this question. I couldn't think of any adorable couples to pair, but who cares about adorable? I just want to pair together some unlikelies and see if anything explodes.

The Alpha Couple
who would either kick universal ass or spend all their time kicking one another's asses
Vampire Academy's Rose Hathaway and The Mortal Instrument's Jace Wayland.

That Boring Couple
who, the second they begin to talk, give your brain an excuse to hit the snooze button
Twilight's Bella Swan and Nightshade's Shay Doran.

This World Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Our Douchebaggeriness
that way, they'd both be in the same place for us to round up and take out
Wildfire's Ashline Wilde and The Selection's Aspen.

All the Awkward Third Wheels
let's just round up all those losers from love triangles, start a club, and give them a big hug
Unless they suck, in which case they can go join a club with Gale Hawthorne.

What do you think, would any of these pairings work? Comment below so I can stop by and see your choices!


  1. I love your Alpha Couple! It's funny cause I also picked people from Vampire Academy and the Mortal Instrument series as well! Rose and Jace would be bad ass!

  3. Hopping through. I'd get such a kick out of Rose and Jace. They would probably kill each other.

  12. This made me LOL! And YES, Aspen is a total douchebag!
    Thanks for stopping by and new follower!

  13. Ha! Nice to see I'm not the only one out there who can't stand Aspen or Gale. Your answers made me laugh a lot.

    Old follower! Thanks for stopping by my FF.

  14. I love your pairings and how you put them into different catagories. Aspen doesn't deserve anyone. Actually just the thought of Bella Swan puts me to sleep!

  21. I like the way you think twin! Rose and Jace would be one hott couple. Love your blog, its ridiculously cute!!

    Kristan @ Lost Amongst the Shelves

  22. LOL you are sooooooo good at this!!!!!!!! I agree about both the first two categories!!! Still need to read The Selection!!!!! Awesome post!!! This is such a great question!!! :-) Beautiful blog!!!!!!!


  23. Heehee it is quite alright for you to get so serious about this matchmaking thing. Really caring people want to see certain book characters happy, and now we get to make them happy =)

    As I have only read half of each of your pairings, I cannot fully bask in this wonderness. But I do feel like the ones I do know you put EXACTLY where they need to be.

    Thanks for stoppin' by! Following back!
