Bout of Books Read-a-thon Challenge for Friday

Thursday's challenge is Bookish Mad Libs, hosted by The Space Between. What a fabulous idea! I was good and came up with my book titles before I looked at the story. Scroll down to see how it all turned out. :)

The Challenge

If you have never played Mad Libs before I think you are in for a treat! Mad Libs is a word game where one player prompts another player for a list of words that they will then fit into a prepared story. The player supplying the words doesn't get to know what the story is beforehand, only what type of word is needed, so you can imagine how silly it can get!

I have made up a list of what words you need to supply, but they must all come from an actual book title, or be a character whose title or series you must list. You do not have to have these books in your possession, so go out and search the interwebs for the most fantastic books you can find, as long as I can verify they are real! You may even use a full or partial title instead of one word, if that title or phrase fits the category asked for, as I will show below.

Are you ready? Here we go!

Make Your Book List

Here is the list of words we need. Please don't scroll down to the story, it will be more fun if you don't know what you're looking for!

You can copy and paste this list into your entry, then replace each item with your book title and author:

A. Place name or type (from a book title) can be a proper name or noun like Italy or mountains
B. Fave Villain (from a book - list title/series)
C. Adjective (from a book title) (hot, cold, dark, etc.)
D. Number (from a book title)
E. Noun (from a book title)
F. Fave Hero/Heroine you wouldn't mind spending a LOT of time with (from a book - list title/series)
G. Dessert (from a book title)


A. Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
B. The Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
C. Quiet Meg by Sherry Lynn Ferguson
D. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
E. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
F. Harry Crewe from The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
G. Rocky Road
by Josi S. Kilpack

Fill in the Template

Copy this template into your entry and replace each letter with the corresponding word/phrase from your list:

Help! I'm being held captive (in/in the/at) A, by B!
It is very C here!
(He/She) is demanding D E(s) to set me free!
I have just discovered that F was captured too!
On second thought, please send G(s), and don't worry if you don't hear from us for awhile!

Much Love,

(Your name/ID)


Help! I'm being held captive at Blackmoore, by The Darkling!
It is very quiet here!
He is demanding four mazes to set me free!
I have just discovered that Harry Crewe was captured too!
On second thought, please send rocky road, and don't worry if you don't hear from us for awhile!

Much Love,
Tressa @ Tressa's Wishful Endings (#350)

I think my place goes quite well with my villain, at least in how they sound together and I love my four mazes and my dessert. What do you think? =D
