Rewrite the Synopsis Challenge

Part of Bout of Books Read-a-thon

Bout of Books

The Challenge – Created by Daydreamer’s Thoughts
Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to take any of the books that you have read for this read-a-thon (or plan to read over the last three days), and re-write the synopsis just from the books cover. The aim is to make it sounding completely different from the original synopsis!

Katie Green sits and confesses to a young nun about the situation she finds herself in.  Hundreds of miles from home, three dollars in her pocket and a duffle bag full of blood stained clothing, along with a butcher knife.  Katie begins by explaining why she had to kill the father of the her unborn child… the child she is unsure she will be able to continue to carry within her.  Katie’s explanation and reasoning behind the murder… shocks the nun but what troubles her the most… is Katie telling the truth or is she truly losing her mind?

Bout of Books Read-a-thon Update

 

Bout of Books

Read-a-Thon

Update DAY FOUR

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

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 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

 

MY GOALS:

  • Finish reading:  Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy (currently on page 86 of 458 pages).
  • Read:  Watch Mommy Die by Michael Benson.
  • Read Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins.
  • Listen to one audio book (start to finish).
  • Write a Review of at least ONE of the books and post the review on my blog.
  • Participate in at least ONE challenge/giveaway.
  • Comment on at least THREE Bout of Books participants blogs during the challenge.
  • Start following at least ONE new blog that is a Bout of Books participant.

UPDATE:

Thursday

What I’ve read today:  American Psycho (which is NOT on my goal list)

Goals I have completed:  I have started following a blog that is a participant in this challenge AND I have commented on a participants blog (goal is 3… so 1 of 3 completed).

Other Related Activities:  Participated in Book Spine Poetry challenge, hosted by Escape Through The Pages.  First time I have ever written a Book Spine Poem – lots of fun! 

Total goals completed:  2 of 8

Comments:  Falling further behind.  Reading books that aren’t on my goal list, likely isn’t helping me!
