Number of pages I've read: 213/213
Books read: The 100 by Kass Morgan
Total number of books read: 1
Today #insixwords: I FINISHED MY FIRST BOOK, HAPPY!
-- Challenge 1: One True Pairing --
The first challenge is from Infinite Ink.
I love it that their relationship evolved from hate (from Juliette's perspective) and amusement (from Warner's perspective). It was definitely not insta-love, and I'm incredibly glad for that. The reason I ship them so MUCH is that they have this strange, otherworldly chemistry. When they are together in a room, they ignite it. It was such a pleasure reading their scenes together. I felt like their love was real and nothing could destroy it. And I felt like they were real people, with flaws and insecurities but they completed each other. And that's the reason why they are my absolute favorite couple.
-- Challenge 2: Book Spine Poetry --
This was really fun. You have to write a poem out of the titles of books, as much as you want. I tried and tried and finally this is what I could do:
Make Your Own Luck
The Girl Who Played With Fire
A Ruthless Need
