Book Blind Date is something that Danielle from Book Whore Blog and I decided to start after seeing a Facebook post on the Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you new about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in.
Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names and identifying phrases are removed just to make things fair. The only rule is: No Googling the synopsis, you have to pick a "date" based on what you read below.
So take part in the Book Blind Date and link up your blog! We'll be stopping by some of your blogs to check out your blind dates ;)
Blind Date #1
HE HAS RESISTED TEMPTATION FOR CENTURIES, A STONE-COLD WARRIOR WHOSE FROZEN HEART REFUSES TO THAW--UNTIL HER . . . .With a dagger in her hand and vengeance on her mind, beauty ***** prowls Boston's streets in search of retribution against the Rogue vampires who took from her everything she cherished. Using an extraordinary psychic gift, she tracks her prey, well aware that the power she possesses is destroying her. She must learn to harness this gift, and for that she can turn to only one man--the deadliest of the ***** warriors, *****.
No stranger to loss, ***** knows *****'s pain. He knows fury, but when he slays his enemies it is with ice in his veins. He is perfect in his self-control, until ***** seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged, a bond that will link them by blood and vow--and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart . . . .
Blind Date #2
*****’s parents were among Hollywood’s golden couples…until the night a monster came and took her mother away forever. A monster with the face of her father…
Sheltered from the truth, an older ***** only dimly recalls her night of terror—but her recurring nightmares make her realize she must piece together the real story. Assisted by *****, the son of the police detective who found her cowering in her closet so many years before, she may have her chance. ***** wants to reconstruct the night that has become an infamous part of Hollywood history. He also wants to help ***** and heal the longing in her lonely heart. But once the door to her past is opened, there’s no telling what’s waiting on the other side. For somewhere, not too far away, the monster walks again…
So who would YOU choose to cuddle up with?
