452306The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares

Twelve-year-old Abigail owns a pair of pants, passed down from her great-great-great-great grandmother, that can take her anywhere. Put them on — then Bam! You can go wherever your heart desires. Yet when she ends up in a foreign land full of trees as tall as skyscrapers, flowers that talk back to her, and the sky the colour of lavenders, she wants to go back. The problem? Her magic pants have been stolen. Soon she discovers the Sisterhood, who are willing to help her… for a price. They will send her back to her home on one condition: Abigail must defeat the Evil Queen and bring back her crown as proof.

256683City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Sixteen-year-old Claire works in a Halloween store called City of Bones, and one night, as she is closing up, she thinks she sees a ghost. Usually, that wouldn’t bother her — ghosts, in Claire’s world, are a common occurrence — but there is a striking similarity between her and the ghost, leading her to the inevitable: She is going to die. And soon. Known for her freakishly strange family history, Claire is forced to delve deeper into the strange curses that cloud her family before she becomes yet another victim.

It’s the year 4022, and seventeen-year-old Icarus wants to touch the sun. So when he wins a competition for the first flight to the sun in mankind, he jumps upon the chance eagerly. But things aren’t all what they seem.

  1. I love your loony Blurbs! You are so creative! Who thinks of a trampoline as an alternate universe? You do! I can’t wait to read one of your own books one day because you have such a great imagination that they must be amazing! P.S you should totally write some of these!

  2. I love all of these Kara :) Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks look like ones I’d particular like to read with your unique twists!

  3. This is such a fun meme, I like reading these made up blurbs and how the title really can give you the wrong impression sometimes. lol, that blurb for Daughter of Smoke and Bone is so totally different from what the book is really about. I haven’t read any of the other books, but it was fun to read your blurbs!

  4. I love your blurbs for The Sisterhood of the traveling pants and I’ll give you the sun! The former is so hilarious and the other one is just so clever, I never thought of that! And they’re both retellings (right?) !!

  5. I found I’ll Give You The Sun’s blurb to be one of the best ones! They’re all pretty hilarious…especially if you’ve read the books!
