Summer Biannual Bibliothon Day 3: The Villain’s Synopsis

Welcome to day 3 of the 2017 Summer Biannual Bibliothon, friends!

For today’s blog challenge, we’re going to write a synopsis! You’ll find the regular synopsis on the back of the book, the inside jacket flap, or on Goodreads. Now, that’s all fine and dandy, but we always get the story from the protagonist’s perspective.

Books My Age

Today’s post is a simple list post in honor of #AYearathon kicking off. This month’s theme is “translations,” but I read somewhere that one could also choose “books published the year you were born.”

#Readathon Mini Challenge: The Meet-Up

Edit: Winner!

Congrats to ErikaB who wrote:

CR: The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon, LR: Panic by Lauren Oliver
Natasha was far too busy for this. What with her family being deported in T-minus 8 hours. What was up with this model esque blonde chick anyway? She’s actually flipping her hair around. As though that would make the fact that she practically ran her over acceptable.
“I’m so sorry! I was trying to catch my sister before she ran off. Are you okay? You look okay. Please say you’re okay.”
Now she was just babbling. Natasha adjusted her headphones and nodded curtly. She did not have time for this.

I love, love, love, love that Erika placed Panic‘s MC into the actual story of The Sun is Also a Star! This scene takes place at the very beginning of the book, and Erika’s version is absolutely perfect for this challenge!


Friends, I am the biggest dork on the freaking planet! I must delay the winning announcement until tomorrow (Tuesday) instead of the promised Monday. On any other week, I could finish reading entries today, since I work on bookish things on Mondays.


Today if my seven year wedding anniversary and I completely forgot!!! The dude man requested the entire day off of work to hang out with me, so I should probably not work on the blog and ignore him.

Check back tomorrow!
