Bout of Books 5.0 Read-a-Thon - Tuesday, August 14th

Pages: 123 (total so far: 346)

Hours: 2 hours and a half (total so far: 6 hours)

Books: Losing Lila, Sarah Alderson (finished it)

Challenge: Limerick Challenge hosted by Ellie Warren @ Curiosity Killed the Bookworm
For today's challenge, I'd like you to write me a bookish or bloggish limerick.

Our novels get longa and longa

Their language gets stronga and stronga

There’s much to be said

For a life that is led

In illiterate places like Bonga

H. G. Wells

A limerick is basically a 5 line poem, where lines 1, 2 and 5 rhyme and lines 3 and 4 rhyme, along with other rules that you may wish to break. You can read much more helpful tips on writing your limerick here. The sillier the better!

I'm not sure whether to enter this one. I have a dread of writing poems, and the article about how to write a limerick totally scared me with that talk of meter and rhyming.

Challenge: Relocate hosted by Alissa @ The Grammarian's Reviews
What book are you reading, where does it take place, and where is it going to relocate?

I'm reading Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson, and it takes place mainly in Los Angeles (but also a bit in Mexico). I'm relocating to... Middle Earth! I'd like to watch Lila, Alex, Jack and the whole gang trying to kick some butt with swords. It would especially funny when it comes to Jack and Alex, who have a Marine background. I wonder how the "psy" would be welcomed into the Middle Earth, and I really wonder what Lila could do against Sauron and his evil minions, given what she is able to do in Losing Lila.

Challenge: Character Interaction hosted by Hannah @ Once Upon a Time
Hey guys! I’ve got a fun and creative challenge for you today. As such there will not be a winner as it’s going to be a bit of fun but maybe I’ll pick some honourary mentions if I get time. The Character Interaction challenge pretty much does what it says on the tin: take two characters from separate works of literature and show us how you’d imagine them interacting. Write it as a very short piece of fiction and don’t worry if you don’t think you’re much of a writer – it’s all in the name of fun! Just roll with it. Now think about these characters’ personalities. Are they strong willed or the quiet types? Would they fight? Kiss? Get drunk?

Unfortunately I didn't have the time to work on this, moving on.

  1. Eu ignorei completamente a métrica do limerick, só dei importância à rima. (Não há paciência para a métrica!)

    Lila vs. Sauron LOL!

    1. Lol, apoiadíssimo! Nunca percebi a piada da métrica... E hoje em dia a poesia ainda me consegue confundir com estas regras todas. xD

      Ehehehe, havias de ver a maneira como ela usa o poder dela no 2º livro! Seria um confronto hilariante. xD
