Wow you guys! I was blown away by the response to this little challenge of mine! I have to tell you, I was super nervous that people would be like, "what kind of weird thing is that you want us to do?" but instead you all embraced it and did fantastic entries! I am so gratified by all the wonderful comments you made regarding it as well, I have all kinds of warm fuzzies!
I want to thank our lovely hostesses Amanda and Kelly for giving me the chance to step out of my comfort zone and be so visible during Bout of Books 8.0, and also for keeping me out of trouble when I don't know enough to myself! *blush* I had mentioned in my write up that the winner would be the Mad Lib that I enjoyed the most, which turns out to be a no-no for this kind of thing, which is actually good, because it took the pressure off me to choose! LOL! So, instead I used an online randomizer to choose my actual winner, and then I'll share some fun stats from all the entries. Yes, I really did go read them all, I love how they turned out, what you had to say about them, and what you commented to each other about them! FEEL THE LOVE! ;)
Without further ado, the Bookish Mad Libs Challenge Winner for Bout of Books 8.0 is *drum roll*:
Danielle from The Book Barn!
Here is Danielle's Mad Lib:
Help! I'm being held captive in Azkaban by Lord Voldemort!
It is very white here!
He is demanding five dragons to set me free!
I have just discovered that Katniss was captured too!
On second thought, please send cookies, and don't worry if you don't hear from us for awhile!
So we had places from Salamandastron to parallel universes and everywhere in between!
Your main villains were President Snow (The Hunger Games) and The Darkling (The Grisha Trilogy? Haven't read these yet, but I want to!), although several of you were afraid of The White Witch (Narnia) and Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter)
Jericho Barrons (The Fever series) only slightly beat out Mr. Darcy (Pride and Predjudice), and a few of you chose to hang with your best girlfriends Hermione (Harry Potter) and Katniss (The Hunger Games) which is totally cool too!
By a landslide Chocolate was the top dessert, but you were pretty excited about cupcakes and lemon cake too! I approve!
I think 1,000 terracotta dogs was probably my favorite of the weird things our villains wanted to set you all free! Apparently someone was wanting to set up their own version of Qin Shi Huang's terracotta army.
I truly enjoyed hosting this challenge, thank you all for making Friday an awesome day as I watched the entries roll in! 80+! Wow! Just Wow!
