I made the executive decision that doing Loony Blurbs every two weeks is a bit difficult. So instead, it’s now going to be a monthly feature – at the start of the month, I’ll do my post, and then you can do your own ANY time within that month. This is the first of those.
Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay
And the Princess of Thorns. But unlike the others, this princess has roses. She curses the Princess of Thistles with the power of the rose – unless the Princess of Thistles can find someone to love her before the last petal falls, she will die.
But there are two more princesses, and they are coming for the Princess of Thorns, roses or not.
The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
But Sarah knows the truth, because she’s seen a mermaid. And she wants to see them again.
And then she does. She’s dragged into the world of Hukkatta and she wishes she had never seen the mermaid. They don’t just drown sailors – they drown anyone.
But there’s one mermaid who’s different. Saali takes pity on Sarah. And maybe the world of Hukkatta could be beautiful after all.
Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire
The Milky Way against the Cartwheel Galaxy.
People are dying.
But Greg things up a compromise: an egg and spoon race. And whoever wins gains control of the other galaxy.
This is going to be the most intense egg and spoon race the universe has ever seen.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
They call her Aurora, for they found her at dawn.
Who will be in charge of her, this Aurora? Lawyers, judges. They all try to make the decision.
But when Mallory comes across the strange girl, Aurora wakes up, and says just one sentence: “Take me away from here.”
That’s how Mallory discovers the Thornrose world. And she’s not sure she’ll ever get out.
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
She tries to ignore them. That’s what you do with stalkers, right? And besides, she can’t tell anyone. She has a feeling that whoever is sending her messages isn’t quite human.
They don’t say anything. Just a number. But when 12 arrives, there’s more: “13 will be the last one. And then you will be mine.”
If Maureen doesn’t figure out what this person wants, things are going to get very scary.
A Pocketful of Eyes by Lili Wilkinson
Being a witch’s assistant in modern-day Sydney has its perks – Lili can ace all her tests without arising any suspicion. But when her friend Lulu finds her with a pocketful of frog spawn and rat eyes, it’s suddenly difficult to think of a reasonable explanation.
The solution? To enlist Lulu, of course.
Except it turns out that Lulu isn’t really a girl Lili’s age, but a rival witch.
Lili’s mistress is not going to be happy.
The Bubble Wrap Boy by Phil Earle
He’s in his last year of high school.
Something has got to change.
Then Phil meets a new friend – a boy called Newt, who doesn’t do what anyone tells him.
This is going to be one hell of a final year.
Link up below! Remember it’s open through all of November.
