Describe a Book In a Sentence

* Hello loves! Wow has May been crazy! I was already late with my April Wrap Up and my May TBR  and here I am behind again. Ugh. Anyway today I wanted to give you a post that I think is fun and challenging. I asked my husband to pull ten books off my shelves so that I could describe them in a sentence. The reason I didn't choose the books is that I knew I would go for ones that were easy to describe. Guys, some of these books I haven't read in years. This is going to get interesting. 



I had my husband pick 10 books that I've read off my shelves. I'm doing this without a bunch of forethought. I'm trying to describe these books as they come and say whatever comes out of my head first. Lol. Well, let's get started!


1. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor


Well....I remember liking this book but I don't really remember what happens......Let's see if I can try to describe this book in a sentence. I'm going to go with 

"Big secrets are revealed and trust is broken."

2. The Return of the King by JRR Tolkien


So it's been years since I've read this one. But here goes: 

"Triumph at last but it isn't always happily ever after."

3. A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemerer


"Badass girl saves the prince and the kingdom." 

Well, that wasn't so bad. I actually loved this book!

4. Crown of Feathers by Niki Pau Preto


"Girl of unknown origins finds out she's a descendent of legends." 

This one was tough for me. This book was so dull and predictable for me. I found the main character to be annoying as heck. That said I'm pretty excited for the sequel!

5. Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies


"Chosen one prophecy but with deer." 

This is a much-loved book of mine. I read it so long ago and it was so good! I've been dying for a reread of it.

6. Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor


Oh, look! Another Queen Laini book. This one is easy. 

"Crazy revenge story!"

7. Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi


"This is what I believe.....oh wait, just kidding, I changed my mind.....again and again and again."

This book was seriously so frustrating! The two main characters drove me CRAZY. I literally couldn't wait for the book to be done.

8. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand


Yay!  A non-fantasy book for the list. 

"A heartbreaking story about courage and what it takes to stand up for what is right."

9. The 49th Mystic by Ted DekKer


"Interdimensional travel and a crazy bad guy with a book." 

This book was one of my favorites a couple years ago. Leave it to Ted to write yet another great thriller book. 

10. The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson


"They catch the girl in this one." 

I absolutely loved The Wren Hunt. It wasn't a 5 star but definitely up there on the awesome books list.


Well, that wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.


 I know none of these make much sense but that's the point, isn't it? The purpose is to create just enough intrigue to get you to pick up the book. Any other reader would describe these in a much different way. 

I hope you got a laugh or two or even a confused look on your face while you read these sentences. This was done purely for the entertainment aspect. 

Happy Reading,
