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.

-BUT WHAT IF-

the back of the book was written from the villain’s point of view?

#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!

EDIT: IMPORTANT UPDATE

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.

BUT

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!

Welcome to Hour Four!

Go make yourself another cup of coffee or tea. While it brews, complete this challenge! It should take you no more than 5 to 10 minutes, so you can get back to reading.

The Challenge:

Write a short story/paragraph describing a meet-up between your current read’s main character and your last read’s main character. It’s gonna be either chaos or awesomeness, right?

Pride and Prejudice

Ew. “Poetry is the food of love”

*insert massive eye roll*

Wait, wait… That’s not why we’re here? Oh, okay. Fine. I guess I’ll refrain from laughing at the language and romancing of the early 1800s.


Pride and Prejudice is my first Jane Austen novel. My friends have been hounding me for years to read the thing (since I refuse to watch the thing when I haven’t read the thing) and I finally obliged.

#DAReadAThon TBR

It’s time to join Aentee again for another great readathon adventure! All graphics used in this post were created by Aentee for the #DAReadAThon.

So before we get into the TBR, let’s talk about the readathon itself. Dumbledore’s Army ReadAThon takes place January 1-15, 2017, and focuses on diverse reads, especially those that are #OwnVoices. There are seven reading challenges based on spells in the wizarding world, and we earn House Points for our reading accomplishments! Here’s my house card:

Holiday Booktubeathon 2016

I need to finish four books in three days in order to have read 80 books in 2016. At first, this seems impossible. BUT the books I’m reading are all children’s books (A Series of Unfortunate Events)  AND I’ll be participating in the Holiday Booktubeathon!

The Booktubers will be hosting sprints on their twitter account and I am definitely going to participate. Alright, with four books to read, let me rephrase that: I NEED to join their reading sprints.

And also, I feel obligated to share that they have a discount on Book Depository because I’ve used it myself and I need to share the love!
