Loony Blurbs (3)

Thursday, 6 November 2014

Loony Blurbs is a meme running on every month created by Emily @ The Loony Teen Writer where bloggers create book blurbs only based on the titles! As you can guess, the possibilities are endless. So without further ado, here is what I have created for this week's books:

18782855Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

Macy is a daddy's girl and has all the money in the world. After her mother died, she became his little princess who pretty much always got what she wanted. However, Macy's past experiences and excess of wealth means that she isn't the nicest character in the world with her haughty and thorny attitude. When the new girl Felicity comes onto the scene at school, it appears that Macy has met her match in the sass department. Maybe, just maybe, a new character to contend with will change her personality for the better.

22840182The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

Allie's mother was regarded in the small seaside town of Hooksmere as...well...mad. She was the one who believed in evil spirits lurking around every corner and wearing garlic around your neck to ward off vampires. So, when she starts raving on about how she swears she saw a mermaid on the beach one afternoon, Allie can't help but be skeptical once again. It's only when Allie sees something that definitely looks mermaid-like that she starts to realise that maybe they are not just myths after all.

20708810Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire

Harry was the egg, and Susie was the spoon in their relationship in the race against time while fighting a life threatening illness. Harry was always delicate, physically and mentally, though this didn't draw Susie away when he asked her to be his girlfriend. She held him delicately in the palm of her hand and carried him through the bad days when his cancer was taking the most toll, and celebrated the goodness in him on the days when it almost seemed he would heal completely. The question is, how long will their relationship last when the shell begins to crack? Will their love alone be enough to defy the odds?

16096824A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J, Maas

The bunch of thorns is raised for the guilty, the bunch of roses for the innocent. Angeline didn't mean to get caught stealing the crown jewels from the Kingdom of Flora, but her family was starving and she had the best thieving skills in all the realm. Needless to say, King Rowan wasn't impressed, and so she was brought to the royal court on trial. Whether she lives a free woman or an enslaved one all depends on one simple gesture from the jury - will it be thorns or roses?


13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Emery always knew she was adopted, but every year she still received a birthday card from her real mother. On her fourteenth birthday however, the envelope doesn't come. As Emery struggles to find out what this must mean and whether her birth mother even cares about her any more, shocking new revelations are revealed regarding who she really was and where those thirteen little blue envelopes actually came from.

A Pocketful of Eyes by Lili Wilkinson

'You didn't do the spell right you idiot - it was meant to produce a pocketful of 'flies', not 'eyes'. Gosh Esmerelda - can't you do anything right!?'. This was usually how Esmerelda Alkery's day went at the London Secret With School for Girls. She wasn't the most academic of the bunch, but she could win awards for being the most accident-prone. As it turns out, ending up with glass eyes in her dress pocket would be the least of her problems...

19240489The Bubble Wrap Boy by Phil Earle

'Don't worry about that Danny, I'll get that for you',
'We wouldn't want you to get hurt Danny, here let me do it instead'
'Of course if it wasn't for your accident you could participate, but...'

These are the comments Danny Loshert had to endure every day since the accident that changed his life forever. Not being able to just be 'one of the guys' had taken enough of a toll on his life already and he was sick of everyone coddling him. This year would be different. It was time to take charge of his own life. It was time to stop being the bubble-wrap boy .

What do you think of my blurb creations?


  1. THESE ARE SO GOOD. I can't even with their awesomeness. I love the thorns or roses concept for the jury! We should try that out in a real court. And the egg and spoon metaphor - your English teacher would love it, I'm sure :)

    1. Thank you Emily! <3 I really enjoyed writing them up this week - you picked some great titles to base them on!
