6294Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Every full moon, Howl’s castle moves. Vanishes. Steals away into the night. Howl has a list of every movement of his castle for the next two years — this way, he can keep track of where his castle is going, and for how long. But what happens when his list mysteriously disappears? Enter Emma: kleptomaniac, too smart for her own good, she nabs Howl’s list before he even realizes it’s gone. Yet Howl’s castle has mysteries of its own, and if Emma and Howl don’t reunite before the next full moon, secrets unlocking both their pasts could be lost forever…

47281Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

One, two, three, four, five, six… Every day, Louise numbers the stars until they vanish from the skies completely. The world is plunged into darkness, and chaos erupts: governments crumble, war is rife, and the population is declining rapidly. Scientists around the world come to the terrifying conclusion: Earth is teetering on the edge of a black hole — and if they don’t do something now to stop it, everything and everyone they’ve ever known is going to vanish completely.


324277The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket

Welcome to the Carnivorous Carnival. If you dare.

Everyone knows that the Carnivorous Carnival is just a hoax. A show, put on for the people who want a bit of a thrill and a scare, and nobody knows this more than sixteen-year-old Lemon, whose father owns the carnival. Yet when people start dying mysteriously, linked back to murders that happened over eighty years ago, Lemon is forced to concede that something extraordinary — something paranormal — might be occurring there. And he only has twenty-four hours until he carnival is closed for another year.

18635086The Eighth Day by Dianne K. Salerni

Lilah has eight days to live. Not because she’s ill, or she’s old — in fact, she’s only eighteen years of age — but because she sold her soul to a light faerie when she was ten. She only has eight more days until she’s whisked away to fairyland fr good, never to be seen from or heard of again. But then, a mysterious young man named Jones tells her she has another option: side with the dark fae, and she’ll be able to keep her soul. Yet is working for the enemy worth it? Lilah better decide quickly — after all, she only has eight days to figure it out.

That’s all for this fortnight’s Loony Blurbs (Yes, I skipped some, I didn’t have the time!) — What did you think? :)

  1. I LOVE the one for The Eighth Day!! Light faeries and dark faeries?? That’s so cool. You should definitely write it for me :P And Number the Stars sounds awesome too, because…well, black holes.

    I completely forgot about Loony Blurbs (which is quite sad) but my post will be up tomorrow :D

  2. I agree with Emily–I love the one for The Eighth Day! This reminds me of how much I actually want to read that book. Howl’s Moving Castle, and Number the Stars both cracked me up as well. Great post!

  3. I loved this! Still giggling at Eleanor and Park…although I was thinking, “Oh what would I write” and all I could think of was Eleanor trying to learn to park…like a car or something. (This is probably because my sister is learning to drive and is an absolute horror.) That would also be hilarious. I LOVE THE LEMONY SNICKET ONE TOO.

  4. I love all of these Kara – especially for Eleanor and Park. It’d be really interesting to read your version of ‘Number the Stars’ and ‘The Carnivorous Carnival’ as well (plus I love how you used ‘Lemon’ for the name of a character in that one – it’s very fitting). Great post :)
