Four-Word Summary Challenge

I was watching the Try Guys the other week and their video of celebrating their four-year anniversary by playing a game where they pick a slip of paper with titles of videos they made and try to explain it to their partners in four words in four seconds. I thought that would be fun to apply to books, so here we are.

Because I don’t make videos or write books, I’m using a list of books that I’ve read. I wrote down a whole bunch of (hopefully) well-known YA books and selected 15 of them to try and make a summary in four words (or less).

The two rules I have are:

  1. I’m not allowed to use any words in the book title
  2. I’m not allowed to use any character names.

If you want to play along, you can try and guess what book I’m talking about after reading my short summary and then click the drop down to reveal the title. For the most part, if a book is part of a series, I used the first book just so there would be less spoilers.

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!
