THERE’S A BANNER AND EVERYTHING!
Because you know, I’m just so professional like that.
Also, I have a proposition for you, blogglings. And it might be a dumb idea, but let me know in the comments. So this is going to be a fortnightly feature, and I’d like you guys to join in!! So if I posted a list of titles for each fortnight, and you could join in with making blurbs for as many as you want out of those…WOULD YOU DO IT? I mean, it’s lots of fun so I’m going to do it regardless, but I’d love to know if it’s something you guys would like to participate in as well 😀
So let’s go. Third time round.
The Apple Tart of Hope by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald
If Pepper is going to defeat the legendary Pumpkin Colonel, she’s going to need all the help she can get. She’s going to need her friends, Almond and Basil. But most of all she’s going to need the Tasty Trifecta: the Apple Tart of Hope, the Roast Beef of Power and the Blueberry Muffin of Fortitude.
But the Pumpkin Colonel has his own weapons. He has the Strawberry Shortcake of Omnipotence.
Pepper must hurry if she wants to find the Apple Tart and save Nutritionalia. Time is running out.
100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith
Crab, class clown of his grade, can’t resist a dare. When his friends challenge him to gallop sideways for 100 miles, he starts immediately – as a joke. But then he finds himself in a whole new world – the world of Sideways. His friends’ joke has unwittingly gained him entry.
What he also didn’t know is that the dare he accepted back on Earth? Well, that’s a binding oath in Sideways. So Crab has to complete the dare and travel 100 miles through Sideways.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
James is a runner. But despite pleas for him to join the school cross country team, he’s not interested. James only runs in mazes. They’re a bit hard to find where he lives, which is why it’s helpful that the fist maze leads to another – they’re all linked to the fairy underworld, where James has been visiting since he was a kid.
James is juggling two lives – the life of his errands within the Maze world, and the burden of having to return home in time for dinner, lest his parents suspect something was up.
Imagine his displeasure when his annoying older sister discovers his most prized secret – the world of the maze.
The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Keil
She’s the Santa of cinnamon – bringing the bittersweet spice wherever she goes, to whoever needs it the most. When she teams up with Sugar Girl, they’re unstoppable.
Or maybe not quite. The Flour Fiend is refusing to share his powdery goodness with the Isle of Doughnuts, which means…no more doughnuts. And without doughnuts, the magic of the land will disappear.
These are the incredible adventures of Cinnamon Girl.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
But Colby and Mulligan aren’t the same. Every other Raven Boy kills their mother, because women are witches and deserve death. Colby and Mulligan were brought up in the human world, and they love their mum. She makes pancakes in the shape of love hearts. How can you murder someone like that?
If they’re away from Neverland long enough, though, they cease to become half-boy and half-raven. They become all raven. But Colby and Mulligan love the human world…is there a way to stay in it and age with everyone else?
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
It’s a treasure hunt of the most intricate nature. A game of hide and seek. You’re the one hiding, and I’m the one seeking. Ready or not, here I come. Some might think it weird that a girl with perfectly lovely guardians wants to find her both mother. But I’m not just looking for you because I want to see if our faces match up, if we laugh the same way.
I need answers.
I need to know what happened to tear our family apart. I need to know what these memories are; that terrible screaming that still gives me nightmares.
You’re my last hope. Everything leads to you.
The Manifesto on How to Be Interesting by Holly Bourne
Harley is not interesting. He would, however, like to be interesting. This manifesto is his documentation on experiences that have been undertaken in the name of becoming more eclectic. Seizing the day.
These experiences include, but are not limited to: wok racing, Swedish bunny-jumping, extreme ironing and worm charming.
But Harley’s life gets even more interesting when he finds a friend who is willing to do this crazy stuff with him. And she may even be willing to do some not-so-crazy stuff.
Like sharing knock-knock jokes for instance – now that’s Harley’s kind of interesting.
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
Azura doesn’t believe them. She’s curious.
In this subversion of The Little Mermaid, Azura cuts a deal with the infamous Queen of the Overworld, who takes her voice in exchange for a trip to the human world.
What Azura discovers during her most blissful time on Earth is that even here, the sky is everywhere.
I hope you liked these blurbs!!
The only book I’ve read out of these is The Sky is Everywhere, so for most of these I don’t even know the real story. Oh, except for Cinnamon Girl, because I SERIOUSLY NEED TO READ IT.
Anyway, yeah, let my know if you’d be willing to join in if I made this a link-up feature 🙂
