I’m linking up with Emily @ Loony Literate for Loony Blurbs, which is basically where you make up a blurb for a book yourself, based on ONLY the title.
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
Marie’s messed up, and she knows it. Suddenly all of the birds in Lystra are raining from the sky, their feathers weighing a thousand tonnes. There’s only so much a spell can go wrong. And if she doesn’t fix it, the world as we know will fall apart. And certainly be bird-less by the end of it.
And how can she fix it? By picking up one of those feathers. And the only way she’ll be able to pick one up? To fall in love. Or to hire a crane because there’s no way she can handle the weight of those feathers on her own.
Her options don’t look too good.
And if she doesn’t fix it in 31 days, well, the Welfare for Fowls department will have someone to take their wrath out on.
A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria E. Scwab
Victoria has syntheasia.
Her brain has been assigning colours to different things all her life; words, letters, people.
What she isn’t prepared for?
Finding out she’s a witch.
One year in at magic training, and everything changes. Because suddenly magic takes on much darker shades. And she’s not sure if there’s a link between her disorder and magic, or something deeper.
But will anyone be willing to listen to her?
Pieces of Sky by Trinity Doyle
Trinity likes to eat. Camel hump soup. Sushi. Fried whale fins. Fairy wings. And most importantly, cake. Anything. Everything.
The king of the Kingdom of Sky is fed up of her. And putting up with Trinity’s abligurition is becoming tiresome.
So he gives her an option: find a way to eat a piece of the sky, or forget eating eternity.
The stakes are high, the sky even higher. Is Trinity cut out for eating the sky, and if so, will the ozone layer still remain intact?
Read this thrilling debut to find out.
