Badly Explain Your Favorite Books

Let’s talk about anything bookish!

 

How do you explain your favorite books to someone who hasn’t read them yet? Do you go into great detail about the plot, the characters the conflict? Or you just tell them that the book is good and to read the blurb?

Well, someone on my online book club OSRBC (Old School Romance Book Club) asked everyone to badly explain their favorite books. I joined in and I had so much fun writing them. Which brings me to the topic of this blog post. I will be sharing 10 of my favorite books and will badly explain the plot! I will do my very best not to share spoilers (unlike what I did at the book club), but I will probably spoil some of them so be warned!

I will also be hiding the book titles with spoiler tags so you can guess what they are! I hope this will be a fun exercise for everyone!
