Bout of Books 12 Challenge: The Synopsis Challenge

Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
This challenge is hosted by: LuLo Fangirl
This challenge is to write a synopsis based on any book you’ve read..let’s get into this this should be fun!
Sometimes it only takes a couple of sentences to determine whether a person will read a book. But nowadays, some of the synopses on the back of books are too long.
Your mission — should you choose to accept it — is to:

Create your own synopsis. In 3-5 sentences.

For any of the books you have read or plan to read during the read-a-thon!

You can be as creative as you’d like!

My synopsis of…

Shadow and Bone

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.

Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy.

Now comes my synopsis:

You’re powers will never show until you really need them…

Alina was just a normal girl who was an orphan growing up…or as she thought

One day she enters the Shadow fold…

….and the next day, she is a Grisha

Hope you guys liked it! I wasn’t really sure whether it was good or not but hey? why not just post it?


And now for my update.

So last night I finished Don’t Even Think About It and it was so good! I really enjoyed and I got another book off my TBR shelf! So now i’m reading..

The Winner’s Curse

The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)

Author: Marie Rutkoski

Pages: 355

Publisher: Farrar Straus Giroux

Published on: March 4th 2014

Winning what you want may cost you everything you love

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
