#insixwords | Bout of Books 12 Challenge


I hope everyone has been reading lots! Today is the last day in Bout of Books and time to wrap up and finish all the books! To give you a break between all the reading here is a challenge for you to complete about the books you read this week ( or any books in general) This challenge can be one that you create a post for or even just participate on twitter so others can follow the hashtag! Now onto the challenge!

This challenge is called #insixwords ! The point of this challenge is to choose 2-3 books whether you read them this week, they are a few of your favorites or they were just the easiest ones to come up with something for. For these books you choose to use for this challenge, you must summarize/share your thoughts or feelings about the book in just six words! They can be funny or serious, positive or negative, it is all up to you! For me I struggle with making sense and understandable sentences with 140 characters so this proved to be quite difficult for me and I tried many different books before I was able to come up with some subpar #insixwords. I hope you have better luck and enjoy the challenge of conveying a book into only six words! (If you put them on twitter make sure to use the hashtag #insixwords, #boutofbooks, include the book you are using and if you would like tag me @downthebookhole! )


172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad #insixwords ” Slow building terror with shocking ending” 

Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman #insixwords ” A reminder of childhood and innocence”

How We Fall by Kate Brauning #insixwords “Taboo love story with mystery elements!”

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout #insixwords ” Roth, hot crown prince of hell!” (so this one doesn’t give much into the book, but I do love me some Roth and was going to just repeat his name six times!)

Love and Other Unknown Variables by Shannon Lee Alexander #insixwords “Quirky, heartbreaking and humorously beautiful book”

Tithe by Holly Black #insixwords ” A dark and edgy faerie tale”

Frozen by Melissa De La Cruz #insixwords ” Great concept but poorly executed book”

Half A King by Joe Abercrombie #insixwords “Unique, Gripping and Action Packed Fantasy!”

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater #insixwords “Swoon worthy boys with paranormal secrets”

(I think that is enough! I am really not good at this, but hope some of you come up with some amazingly awesome ones!)
