Love Unbound

Mia C Yalsa Valentines001


Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit may have caught a love spell cast by Mistress Weatherwax of A Hat Full of Sky.

Frankie Landau-Banks and Marcus Yallow from Little Brother could mastermind a world take over if they teamed up … or maybe they’d just spend a lot of time chatting online?

Huck Finn and Jackie Faber could have a lot of adventures together, on the Mississippi or the high seas.

Gabe from Beautiful Music for Ugly Children and A from Every Day are figuring out their identities and places in the world — I think they could be good for each other.

Will Henry, budding Monstrumologist, could be really into figuring out Micah’s origin, story, and truth.

Neville Longbottom and Eskarina Smith — two magical underdogs who fate swapped into extraordinary places.

I had so much fun imagining the matches that could be made out of characters from different YA books. Special thanks to  fellow blogger Annie Schutte for matching up Frankie and Marcus, co-worker Trevor Ingerson for suggesting A and Gabe, librarian friend Brandy Danner for realizing Will Henry could be a perfect match for Micah, and YA best buddy Shruti Kulkarni for putting Neville and Eskarina together. I’d love to hear more suggestions from all you lovers of YA Lit out there!
