Bout of Books Day 3 Progress and Day 4 Challenge

Bout of Books

As much as I wanted to get a ton of reading don yesterday, things just did not go according to plan. However, it’s really nice to see that I’m nearing the end of Texas Gothic; I am sad to see it go, though, since it’s been such a fun ride reading it. Unfortunately, I started the day off with a panic attack and given my track record for panic attacks, that means I only have more to come as the day goes on. Thankfully, I have FMLA leave at work for instances like this, so I can use reading as a way to come down after every attack. Mental health is no joke.

Day 4 Challenge

Villains are my favorite people in books. They just make books more interesting, don’t they?

Here are the rules for the challenge:

  • Pick villains from two different books that you would love to see fight each other. It can be from any genre and it doesn’t even have to be a physical fight. It could be a verbal one as well.
  • Give a short reason why you think these villains should fight each other.
  • You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge. You could tweet it or instagram it or even leave it in the comments. If you do tweet it, don’t forget to mention me (@bingeingonbooks) and use the hashtag #villainmashup.
  • You must be a Bout of Books participant AND you must do this challenge to be eligible for the giveaway.



The Darkling, Shadow & Bone


Voldemort, Harry Potter Series


At least, that’s how I imagine a rough idea bout poster would look like for a big brawl between these two antagonists. I’m sure if I had access to Photoshop like I did when I worked at OfficeMax or when I was in college, I could have drafted a better bout poster. But anyway, I digress.

It would be so ridiculously cool to see these two forces of darkness go head-to-head against each other in an all-out battle of wits and magic. These villains really have quite a bit in common in terms of their ultimate evil, genocidal goals and their natural charisma that unites their minions.  Furthermore, I’d definitely imagine a clash between The Darkling and Voldemort would be far more than just throwing spells at each other; they’re both sharp of tongue, so a verbal altercation would be bound to happen as well. I’d pay a couple of galleons to watch it happen, definitely.

Which two villains would you love to see in a fight? How did day 3 go for you?
