Battle of the Sexes: Girls (#3) Rose vs Mac

Battle of the sexes is a new weekly meme created by us at Book Passion for Life. Every Friday we'll post a poll with 2 characters from 2 different books. We will alternate each week between boys and girls. We'll be running the polls for 12 weeks, at which point YOU thats right YOU bloggers will vote for your favourite character (boy or girl) depending on which week it is. At the end of the 12 weeks, we will place all previous winners into one poll where you will all vote for your ULTIMATE CHARACTER. That character will be crowned King or Queen in the Battle of the sexes final. 

Bloggers that wish to take part in this meme are welcome to do so. When you post the meme please link back to us. You are welcome to alternate each week, so if you would prefer to do girls first then you are welcome to. When posting this meme please include the following info on your characters:
  • Their stats like full name, date of birth, eye colour, hair colour, books they've featured in etc...
  • Three quote's for each character
  • The book cover from where these characters originate OR a photo that best reflects the character
Other than that, there isn't anything else to add to the meme. There are no rules, so pretty much anything goes.

Rose's quotes:

"I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass." 

"It's not about you, okay? This time, it's about me. Not you. All my life, Lissa... all my life, it's been the same. They come first. I've lived my life for you. I've trained to be your shadow, but you know what? I want to come first. I need to take care of myself for once. I'm tired of looking out for everyone else and having to put aside what I want. Dimitri and I did that, and look what happened. He's gone. I will never hold him again. Now I owe it to him to do this. I'm sorry if it hurts you, but it's my choice!" 

"I set off, off to kill the man I love." 

"Hey Mason, wipe the drool off your face. If you're going to think about me naked, do it on your own time." "This is my time, Hathaway. I'm leading today's session."
"Oh yeah?" I retorted. "Huh. Well, I guess this is a good time to think about me naked, then."
"It's always a good a time to think about you naked," added someone nearby, breaking the tension further." 

Mac's quotes:

"I didn’t ask. Some things are better left unsaid.
He looked at me and I shivered. I never get enough of him.
Never will.
He lives.
I breathe.
I want. Him. Always.
Fire to my ice. Ice to my fever.
Later we would go to bed, and when he rose over me, dark and vast and eternal, I’d know joy." 

"I was about to look away when he reached across the seat, touched my jaw with his long, strong, beautiful fingers, and caressed my face.
Being touched by Jericho Barrons with kindness makes you feel like you must be the most special person in the world. It’s like walking up to the biggest, most savage lion in the jungle, lying down, placing your head it its mouth and, rather than taking your life, it licks you and purrs."

"I couldn‘t tell the difference between the two of you anymore!" he roared.

I smashed my fist into his face. Lies roll off us. It‘s the truths we work hardest to silence.

"Then you weren‘t looking hard enough! I‘m the one with boobs!"

"I know you‘re the one with boobs!They‘re in my f**king face every f**king time I turn around!" 

Okay everyone! There's all the details on our girls this week. Two strong females to decide over. Here's the voting time to cast your votes! Winner will be announced once the 5 days of voting is up! Have fun :)

I like both but I think Rose is more kick ass. They both have hot guys (JZB is the HOTTEST!)

My keeper shelf said...

Emily said...

Haven't read either of these series, but just by the descriptions and quotes, I gotta go with Mac.

Marjie Pride said...

Mac is a "soft" girl that turns "hard" by necessity ... I gotta respect that!
