Challenge: Match the Quote! hosted by Benji @ The Non Reluctant Reader
I guessed which quote matched which book, but I haven't entered this challenge yet, it doesn't seem to be working.

It seems fixed. I just entered. It's funny, because when I first read the Game of Thrones quote, without even knowing the book was on the list, I thought the quote was familiar, and a few seconds after, it clicked.

Challenge: Party Up With Literature hosted by Preet @ A Written Rhapsody
In a comment or post(leave a link), pick a character(s) from your current read and do at least two of the following:
  • Create a catchy band name for your group of characters or solo artist.
  • Tell me what genre they would sing.
  • Find a song and/or lyric that would fit the book and tell me who it’s by and why it fits.
  • Find a music video that would relate to the book and leave the link.
  • Create a playlist of three to five songs that would go with your book.

Since I'm reading The Other Countess by Eve Edwards, which happens in Elizabethan times, I'm calling my band Shakespeare Sings, and all the main characters are in the band - Ellie, Will, Jane, Henry, Robert, Charles. It would be fun to see all these clashing personalities to create a band and spend time together.

There's a song I love and that might be a good fit for the book - Fly Away by Emma Townshend. I watched countless times the movie where this song plays (The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns), and since the movie is inspired by a Shakespearean play (Romeo and Juliet), I chose a video of the movie's ending, when this song plays, to add to this challenge. I'm a huge fan of the ending, since after all the drama and trouble everything ends on such a happy note.
