Here are the rules.
1. Pick your top five favorite books
2. Between Jun 20 and 22, write one line of what each book is about and then write one line of why you liked it. Think of it like a twitter pitch for other people’s work. Semi-colons are cheating, but you can use them anyway.
3. Go to other blogs and discuss the books.4. If you do not keep a blog, put your challenge in the comments on the day of the event.
Warning: I am not very good at writing pitches. But here it goes anyway. It was hard to chose just five. I've been blessed and have enjoyed most of the books I've read. I chose these because I read them more than once.
This book was read to me in fifth grade by my teacher. I might not remember the pitch exactly, but here goes...
A story about a bunch of lab rats as they help Mrs. Frisby move her ill son somewhere. (Horrible I know.)
Artemis Entreri, a bad-guy to die for, finds himself in trouble with Jarlaxle, a drow warrior who keeps leading them to places they have to fight out of.
This is the second book of a trilogy. Artemis Entreri is a bad guy whose story intrigues me, and I keep wondering when Jarlaxle will finally get him killed.
After surviving murders in their hometown as children, the children, now adults, come together to challenge the beast when people begin turning up dead.
It scared me into the world of horror and I've never looked back.
After her father dies, Hastings is forced into a union with Severin only to lose her name and her heart. (Cheesy, yes I know.)
I liked it because Hastings is a strong woman and challenges Severin repeatedly before finally losing her heart.
This is my favorite of the series because HP finally learns the truth.
And there you have it...The good, the bad, and the badly worded.
