Hi pals and gals, happy Friday! I hope you’ve been having a great week so far.
I love talking about my favourite books, obviously. And I’ve talked about them a ton, so I feel like it’s pretty obvious what my favourite books are.
So, I thought today, I’d try a bit of a different but hopefully fun blog post. In today’s post, I will be describing some of my favourite books without talking about the title or author. I’ll also be making these descriptions as vague as possible. And then, I want y’all to guess in the comments what book they are!
So here are 20 brief and vague descriptions of some books I love.
Book 1: two twins are separated at birth, but reconnect as kids and again as teenagers. One twin is really good at math and the other is really good at language. They may or may not be somehow involved in necromancy.
Book 2: a city loses its name, and the young boy obsessed with said city becomes a librarian. As an adult, he gets the chance to visit the city and learn what happened.
Book 3: a white woman is depressed.
Book 4: may or may not be the Hunger Games x Game of Thrones in space.
Book 5: cards tell a taxi driver how to help random people. He has a dog that drinks coffee.
Book 6: a boy accidentally steals a priceless painting and then panics in different places about what to do about it. He has a dog that does not drink coffee.
Book 7: children attend boarding school and are ultimately farmed for their organs.
Book 8: a boy sits in a plum tree. This angers and confuses his classmates, who decide that a pile of important things will convince him to leave the plum tree.
Book 9: a white boy obsessed with people’s last words attends boarding school and falls in love with a girl.
Book 10: a family’s daughter is dead, but they don’t know that yet.
Book 11: a non-fiction about depression, among other things.
Book 12: a girl who has undergone a trauma decides to run across the US instead of dealing with her issues.
Book 13: not about birds, sadly, but is instead about the magic of friendship and dead welsh kings.
Book 14: sapphics at boarding school fall in love in the time of Corona.
Book 15: a fantasy with everything you could ever want: a competition, magic, being forced onto a quest with someone you don’t like but might be in love with, birds, and fashion.
Book 16: a poor gal parties with her rich best friend, who has major jealousy and control issues.
Book 17: a bisexual actress really isn’t helping the stereotypes by getting married a lot and having a lesbian lover throughout most of those marriages.
Book 18: follows two actors, one living in our world pre-covid and one living in our world post-covid if the US continues to reopen.
Book 19: a pregnant girl marries a gay guy so they can both avoid confronting these issues publicly.
Book 20: a confused queer gal has a relationship with a confused, married man. This further confuses both of them.
So, there are some books I love! Please, please, please let me know below what books you think these are! Whoever gets the most will get a shout-out in my next post or on Twitter or something. I’ll also post the answers in a couple days!
Thanks for reading xx
