Battle of the Sexes: Boys (#1)

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. 

So for our first poll we thought we'd start with the guys. And we thought we'd make it a biggy! So bloggers please cast your votes for either Bones of the Night Huntress Series OR Jericho Barrons of the Fever Series. Ha! Told you it was a biggy! Below you will see the poll, just cast your vote and leave a comment if you wish. Bloggers love comments. The poll will run for 5 days and the winner of that week will be announced on the Friday before the new poll is listed.

Haha Jennifer. We completely understand your feelings! Donna isn't finding it hard because she hasn't read Fever. I have read both, and I can't decide so I didn't vote lol. I find myself leaning towards Barrrons though...

What an awesome poll contest! I went with Bones. His quotes were gggrreat. I've actually have the first book of each series on my shelf to read eventually, but haven't yet. I've heard wonderful things about both series and its characters before. I need to get started reading them soon, but with such great reads out, I can't devour them all. Ugh!

Lesley said...
