Time for something a little different: a competition! The premise is to choose a song that matches a character's personality or story. And in the run up to YALC, we're going to make things interesting with a UKYA theme!
Now, there are three categories: a character, a couple, or a book. You can enter one or all three, and you have all week to enter. It will finish next Saturday night and I will announce the winner Sunday 13th. And the prize? A book of your choosing (as long as it's under £10 on The Book Depository). Unfortunately, I can't afford to have a winner in each category, but if you wow me, there might be some runner-up prizes! *nudge, nudge*
And if you're struggling to get some idea's, I've got some examples:
- Jeane from Adorkable by Sarra Manning - Salute by Little Mix
- Carter/Allie/Sylvain from Night School by CJ Daugherty - Would I Lie To You by White Snake
- Undead by Kirsty McKay - Monster by Skillet
If you can think of anything better for the one's I've used, or come up with something different, you can enter in the comments. Extra points if you explain yourselves, maybe there's just a line that resonates or a particular scene you think a song suits.
A summary: you have a week to tell me in the comments what song you think perfectly sums up a character, a couple or a book in the UKYA genre, to win a book of your choosing from TBD. And don't forget to add your email address so I contact you if you win!
Edit: it seems it's taking longer than I thought for people to think of an entry, so you can have another week! Competition now closes midnight Saturday 19th, and I'll announce Sunday 20th.
