It’s here! IT’S HERE! I’m so excited for this it’s actually crazy. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can find out about the feature through the “Loony Blurbs” tag at the top of the blog, or at this post I wrote.
And without further ado, let’s begin!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Laini’s true name is Cleaning Up My Parents’ Messes, and it definitely fits. With her running around to save the day, nobody ever knows what’s wrong.
Until the Son of Fire and Stitches comes along, that is. And he knows about her parents’ incompetence. The townspeople are enamoured with Fire and Stitches, and the Son – a little twerp called Inial – is lording it over Laini.
This should be interesting.
Walking on Trampolines by Frances Whiting
Well. That’s up to interpretation, of course, because after she dies, there is an after. And when the Gatekeeper persuades her that the way to Heaven is to travel across the Celestial Trampolines, she figures she doesn’t have much of a choice.
Until, that is, a girl tells her that she should bounce as high as she can. So she does that too, landing in…somewhere above Heaven. It’s called Htrae, and it’s Earth’s parallel. What’s more, there’s another Francis there.
This Francis – her name is Sicnarf – is a future Olympic trampolinist. Who’d have thought? The only way to get out of Htrae is through the mystical magic of the trampolines. But Francis isn’t sure she wants to go back.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
The first: Leo “The Lion” and Clive “The Witch” come out of the wardrobe, which is the Australian equivalent of declaring that they are completely and entirely gay.
The second: in the land of Wardrobe, the Lion and the Witch are in a deadly battle for possession of the Great Trench Coat.
When their two worlds collide, naturally everyone’s confused.
The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares
The Pants are involved in the rituals of the Sisters, passed around the globe to aid their magic. If they are not wearing the Pants, their magic cannot be invoked. Pants are their way of life.
There is, however, some confusion with the English Sisters. For them, pants are underwear, and when the Brotherhood cult sends them lacy knickers as a joke…well, you can just imagine the charges of public indecency.
So now it’s English Sisters vs. The World. But there is a pair of Pants to rule the others, fabled in Sisterhood legend…
Who will find them first? We will never know.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
So it’s the City of Bones, and marketing is considering renaming everyone the “Bone Fairies.” Strangely enough, Assistant Tooth Fairy Cassandra doesn’t think the humans will be enamoured with the idea.
Cassandra leads the Tooth Fairy Revolution, confiding her fears to nine-year-old Trixie, perhaps the last child whose teeth she will collect.
The Tooth Fairies vs. the Bone Fairies. The City of Bones has never been more fractured.
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
Only none of them can stay the whole night. And none of them can say why.
Frankie lives there on her own, it seems. Some say she’s a witch. A murderer. A goblin.
Lachlan is the only one brave enough to follow her home one day. What he discovers is that she is an Abstract Thief. She steals smiles, laughs, memories.
And nobody can stop her.
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
But then Trevor meets another girl, who shines more brightly than he has ever seen. She is the sun, and she is human.
And Earth is in a pretty dire situation. In seconds, the moon disappears, and in eight and a half minutes, the sun is no longer shining. The people of Earth have days before…well, before everyone dies.
And Trevor has to give the sun back.
Problem is, she doesn’t want to go back.
Wow, some of these were pretty difficult.
