I created the Friday Book Share Game to help search for that ideal novel/author.
Anyone can have a go – all you need to do is answer the following questions based on a book you enjoyed reading and use the hashtag #FridayBookShare – Simples!
First line of the book.
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
Introduce the main character using only three words.
Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).
Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
Your favourite line/scene.
This is the first book in R J Anderson’s Faery Rebels series, and it hooked me in straight away – who believes that the faeries at the bottom of your garden are real?
First line – ‘I only want to go out for a little, little while,’ the faery child pleaded. ‘Just below the window, on that branch. I won’t fly away and I won’t tell anyone, I promise.’
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb –
“Knife woke in a cold sweat, the torn edge of her wing sizzling with pain. How long had she lain unconscious? Her worst fears had come to pass: she was trapped, flightless, a prisoner. The humans had put her in a box, and now they had come to torment her…”
Don’t read this book if you’re expecting fairy dust – the last thing Knife is likely to wield is a magic wand…
Introduce the main character – Bryony is brave, loyal, and adventurous.
Delightful Design –
Audience appeal – Perfect for YA fantasy/urban fantasy fans.
Your favourite line/scene –
Bryony’s confidence wavered, and she began to wriggle backwards, very cautiously, towards the Oak. She could hear the monster’s laboured breathing as it resumed the climb, and her own breath quickened as she realised how close it was now, close enough to seize her in that grubby hand, to tear off her wings, to cram her into that red, half-open mouth…
Then the child looked up, and its gaze met hers.
