Book Mad Libs: Bout of Books Mini-Challenge

Bout of Books

Today’s Mini-Challenge from the Bout of Books is Book Mad Libs hosted by The Space Between . I thought it’d be a fun break from cleaning the garage, school supply shopping and being my kids’ chauffeur. Plus, there’s a chance to win a $20 Amazon or Book Depository gift card. Wanna play along? Visit The Space Between to enter.

Instructions from the Space Between:

Help! I’m being held captive in the Beautiful Ruins, by Lord Voldemort!
It is very Loud here!
He is demanding 1,001 mockingbirds to set me free!
I have just discovered that Sherlock Holmes was captured too!
On second thought, please send pies, and don’t worry if you don’t hear from us for awhile!

Much Love,


Did you enjoy my story? 1,001 mockingbirds might give me a headache! Did you play mad libs as a kid? We like to play it in the car on long road trips.
