Synopsis Rewrite

For this challenge, all you have to do is rewrite the synopsis of a book from another character's point of view. Make it their story instead. If you post on social media, be sure to use #synopsisrewritebob20 to share.

Thank you to Gräfin Schlotterstein for providing today's challenge idea.


The way these updates work is that you post your progress for the previous day (today's link should be to your progress for the first day of the read-a-thon). Please include a DIRECT LINK to your update post.

If you have questions, please tweet us @boutofbooks or email us (boutofbooks at gmail dot com).


  1. Simon vs the HomoSapien's Agenda:

    For four months now, Martin has had a crush on the new girl. So far he hasn't gotten her to notice him and he's too awkward to approach her. Until, today. Today he found some dirt on her best friend, Simon Speir. Maybe he could keep Simon's secret in exchange for a wingman. Time for blackmail.

  2. My challenge post! :)


  3. That is a really great challenge idea.

    Are the challenges just for fun or are they part of the giveaway or part of something else? Should they be posted here as comments or...? I tried to re-read posts to learn more and I'm probably really overthinking it, haha, but I'm just curious about the challenges.

    1. Hi J,

      The challenges are for fun! We have separate rules for the Grand Prize, which you can read here: http://boutofbooks.blogspot.com/p/grand-prize.html

      You can simply post your answers here, or on Twitter, or wherever you feel most comfortable. Just remember to use the hashtag (#boutofbooks) so others can see your response! :)

  4. This is the coolest challenge ever! Here's my link of my progress. Basically, I fell asleep listening to the eAudio Book so have to start over tonight. That's cool because the performer has a great English accent. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10209682364871758&id=1108855616
