Book Blogger Love-A-Thon: Mini Challenges

During the two days of Book Blogger Love-A-Thon there will be a few mini-challenges.  I will post them all here to make things easier. 

Mini Challenge #1:  Book Spine Poetry

If I had more than one book in the hotel with me then I could do this one.  The only book I have on me is The House Girl.  I am traveling light because I will be here for only 3 days.

Mini Challenge #2:  Book Valentines

This one goes out to my newest book boyfriend Marco from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

My dearest Marco ~
Since the words in my head can never truly express my feeling for you, I have to use the words from another.
 “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda,
100 Love Sonnets

Mini Challenge #3: Mad Libs 

One day, I was SINGING with MICHEAL. Out of the blue, a FAIRY came out of nowhere! It was so TINY, YELLOW, and FUNNY. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we TWERKED. We hopped on a VESPA to make our getaway.

As we escaped, we turned up the radio because OVER THE RAINBOW came on and made me GIGGLE. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until an GRYPHON appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while MICHEAL stayed on the VESPA, I got thrown onto my sides in the woods.

I couldn't get up, and felt EXCITED as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a TUSSLING among the leaves, and felt SNARKY. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of BLUE hair and BLACK eyes.

When I woke up again, I was on a JACCUZI. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a RING and NECKLACE in the room, along with PIE and APPLES. The door suddenly opened to reveal RAFEAL, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he JUMPED and said, "Don't be shy. It's okay."

He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about FLYING, SCRAPPING and DYI'ING and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was FUNNY and couldn't help feeling a little swoony.

Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came UNICORN. "Don't let him charm you away, my love!" He yelled, running at RAFEAL. They each had SPORKS in their hands and began to fight. "Stop!" I yelled, feeling so THRILLED. They didn't listen to me. Before I could intervene, RAFEAL fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.

"What was that?" I asked, staring at the empty space. UNICORN dropped his weapon, and came over to me. "Magic, but you are safe now, LISA." He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.

Just as EMBRACED ME started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my RANDOM luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
