Books and Shoes Challenge



This challenge is part of the Bout of Books Read-a-thon!

Quick read-a-thon update:

I've read Insurgent by Veronica Roth and Dead Time by Anne Cassidy.
I'm reading Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein -- I've read 115 pages so far!
Hoping to get a lot of reading done over the weekend!

When I saw that Jacinda of the Reading Housewives was doing a Books and Shoes challenge for read-a-thon participants, I was so excited.

Here's the book cover I chose:

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Here are three shoes that I would pair with this book cover...

I loved this challenge so much that I'm going to give a copy of Masque of the Red Death away!

To enter, just tell me in the Rafflecopter which shoes you think are the most fabulous -- A, B or C. 

Then be sure to go to Reading Housewives of Indiana and see what other book/shoe pairings other #BoutofBooks read-a-thoners chose!

Sorry, this is US/Canada only, but Freebie Friday is open internationally!

  6. The boots (B) are fierce! But I feel like if I kicked somebody with (A) the first ones I could seriously kill them! So I might go with A! I wouldn't last 10 minutes in those heels though. They're like 7 inches tall!

  7. Hmmmm, tough choice! Every girl needs a good pair of hooker boots, but those stilettos are next level!

    1. LOL. I guess I have hooker boots, now that I think about it. Not the over the knee Julia Roberts Pretty Woman kind, though....

  10. I haven't red the book but just based on the cover your shoes are a perfect match.
    They're gorgeous too! Wish I could walk in heels.

  11. You are doing great on the bout of books! All of those shoes are so fab!!! I love all of those! I'm thinking practicality, and I have things that I could wear C with. If it weren't for that I would rock those stiletto's!!

    1. I read SO much more yesterday. I'm now up to 6 books. I finally read some shorter ones LOL.

      Delete
    2. I actually read more than usual last week since the books I read were short. It makes such a big difference. I had been reading so many 400 and 500+ page books and wondering why I could only read 2 or 3 a week.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, during the read-a-thon I was definitely looking for short books. Of course, the shortest one I read was still 200 pages!

      Delete
  12. So fun. I actually really like the boots, but you do have to hand it to those stilettos. They could do some serious damage if need be. ;)

    1. I can't decide which is my favorite. Maybe C.

  13. What a fun idea! I think you could do some serious butt kicking in those boots! I'm not even sure I could walk in the first pair but they sure are pretty to look at!

  14. Great choices :D
    I'd die to own the boots. They are perfect!
