One-Liner Challenge

I saw a post recently by Epic Reads of a whole bunch of TL;DR summaries for YA books. I thought it would be a fun idea to make a challenge to do a whole bunch of one-liner summaries. Except for this post, I wanted to do something a little bit different. Not only do I have to summarize the book in one sentence, I also have to poke fun at it. Think of it as a one-liner roast.

For this challenge, I decided to do YA fantasy books because it’s my favorite genre.

(Disclaimer: I love all of these books and don’t mean any harm towards the stories, the authors, and their fans. This is just for fits and giggles.)

The Rules:

1. Accept and thank your challenger(s) by linking back to their post.
2. Make a post of one-sentence summaries and/or roasts of at least five books.
3. No spoilers!
4. Link back to The Awkward Book Blogger so she can see your post.
5. Challenge as many or as little people as you want!
6. Have fun!
