RTW: Book Blurbs

Reading Song of the Day: "I Like It" by Enrique Iglesias

In a world where two cuzzes collide...they participate each week in a rawk hard blogging carnival: Road Trip Wednesday. RTW is brought to us by the talented girls at YA Highway and they always have something clever up their sleeves. This week, they want blurbs. Blurbs of either our favorite books or our own work. This one was a lil' hard, and we couldn't get cheesy movie announcer voices out of our head while doing this, so...don't take us too seriously.



Blurbs for some of our fave books:


The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

"A chilltastic tale of a love square that can rival the crazy antics on the Bachelor, yo. Oh yeah, and zombies are in there, too. People, we got ourselves a situation."
MIKE "THE SITUATION" SORRENTINO-the Lothario of the Jersey Shore Boardwalk


Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

"With mean girls, b-b-b-bowler hats, and The Country's Best Yogurt, Lauren Oliver will have you falling with Sam Kingston over, and over, and over, and over...Oh, sorry."

*KING GEORGE VI OF BRITAIN-from the history books...but you probably just know him from The King's Speech




The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

"Katniss turns from ugly duckling to a beautiful swan in this thrilling novel that responds to my touch. Attack it! Attack it!"
THOMAS LEROY, AKA- the crazed, perverted choreographer of Black Swan



*Note: We are not making fun of speech impediments--just the movie itself. 'Cause we don't get it.

So can you think of any blurbs for these books above. Which celeb/character would you want pimpin' out your book?

BTW- We are participating in the 99th Page Blogfest on Friday, January 28th. Won't you join us??

LOL....fun post! Okay, explain to me what a blog fest is...I know I sound lame since I've been blogging for over a year now, but I can't figure it out!

LOVED this! What an awesome take on this week's topic! And 'lothario' is one of the best words I've heard this week.

Tracey Neithercott said...

Ha ha ha. I loved The Situation's blurb. That was awesome.

Rebecca B said...

"Attack it! Attack it!" The Leroy blurb is priceless.

Angelica R. Jackson said...

It looks like you had fun with these! If only I'd seen any of those 3 things you refer to--want to see King's Speech and Black Swan, but I'm waiting for DVD. I will, however, continue to assiduously avoid Jersey Shore.

KO: The Insect Collector said...

Ladies- these are amazing!

Every time I saw Joseph Gordon Levitt or they mentioned Inception on the Golden Globes I thought of you guys. Is that sign I'm reading blogs too much?

Aleeza said...

HAHA! I love this! <3

Amie Kaufman said...

Dying. Laughing.

If I ever make it, I'm hiring you guys to write the copy for the back of my book ;)

Lora said...
