Welcome to the Feature & Follow Hop, hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read!
If you’re new to my blog, I’d love if you would follow via one of the subscription options in the sidebar (LinkyFollowers, Networked Blogs, RSS or Email). Be sure to let me know in the comments how you’re following so I can return the favor!
This week’s question (which was MY SUGGESTION, by the way) is:
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?
Okay, I know I suggested it, but this is actually hard. So many characters in books are already paired off! I don’t want to pull someone out of a “perfect” pairing, which leaves relatively slim pickings. BUT, I can do it. So.
I’m starting with the guy: Kent McFuller from Before I Fall. Poor Kent. He’s so sweet and kind and loyal, and he really gets the short straw in that book.
I mean…other than Sam, who has to die every night for a week. That’s probably a slightly worse hand than what Kent is dealt. But still. I love Kent, and he’s the one I walked away thinking about when the book was finished.
Anyway. Now to pick a lovely lady for him.
I pick Marlee from The Selection.
She’s sweet, she’s gentle, she’s kind, she’s beautiful, she appears to be universally loved, and she’s admitted she’s not that into Prince Maxon. And you know why? Because she should be with Kent. I imagine it would go something like this:
I haven’t read either of these books but they’re on my TBR 😀

The Enchanted Picture made me giggle. I love that movie! Nice guys often finish last so they need a girl like her!
I’m pretty sure I’ve been here before!

That is definitely a tough question! I see what you mean about not wanting to use main characters that already have matches. Unfortunately, I haven’t read either of the books that you referenced yet so I don’t know the characters you picked, but they sound perfect for eachother from what you said. Her kindness to his sad past. <3 (Love Enchanted, by the way)
New follower (Linky and NB), nice to meet you!
I loved both books, but for completely different reasons. And I ADORE Enchanted, so I was giddy I could squeeze it into this post 🙂 Nice to meet you too!
Haha now you’re making me want to go watch it! And I’ve added both books to my TBR list. 😉
Haha sounds like an interesting couple!

You know, I’d never have thought of that, but that is a good pairing. I liked Marlee- and I expect a lot of her in the next book of Selection- and Kent is definitely one of the best real YA guys I’ve read about. Poor Kent, sigh. Thanks for making him happy.

Yes, I’m expecting a big focus on Marlee and her big mystery in book 2! Although if it turns out she has a guy, I’m going to go have to the drawing board for Kent…
Hopping through. I haven’t thought about Kent for awhile. I loved him. Before I Fall was such an incredible book.

Here is my FF post
I haven’t read Before I Fall, so I can’t comment on the matchup, but I adore that final picture!

Love your site (stated once again!) I haven’t read either book, but have them on my monster pile! Thanks for the follow! Returning with a FB follow! …and I love the Enchanted pic – like many others, I want to see that again now! Happy weekend!

I haven’t read any so I couldn’t tell, but it sounds like an interesting choice.

O. My WORD. WHYYYY can’t Kent be real???? He’s undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite book boys of all time! In fact, he was the male character I chose for this week too! here’s my hop

I know! I love Kent. I know the book was about Sam and all, but as far as I was concerned, Kent was the real hero.
Sounds like a good choice.

I can’t wait to read The Selection
I’m following you now from Follow Friday, and to follow me back, check out My Follow Friday post
What an interesting pick! Kent didn’t occur to me, but I guess *technically* he is single. Huhhh. Marlee would probably be a little weirded out by him at first, but they are so sweet I think they would get along great (unless her “secret” gets in the way… I want to know what it is!)
Old Follower! Happy FF!
Kelsey @ Slush Sleuth recently posted..Follow Friday
I have a feeling the “secret” has something to do with a clandestine love interest…hence not being into Maxon…but until that’s proven one way or the other, I’m sticking to my Marlee-Kent pairing 🙂
I’m not familiar with either of these book characters but they seem very well matched!
Thanks for stopping by my FF earlier today. Old Follower hopping on through..
I haven’t read Before I fall yet (although I really want to), but finding a guy for Marlee is such a cute idea! She really deserves to hae someone!

I haven’t read before I fall even though it’s been sitting on my bookshelf for months now.
