Read the title. Pick a book (it can be your own) and boil the plot down to one sentence. Do not give a play-by-play of events. You can only say the bare minimum. And absolutely no flaming somebody if they take a book you don't like.

I'll start:

Swan Kingdom: Girl must save world from an evil witch that wants to suck the life out of the kingdom.
Formerly Rosey Unicorn

A writer is a world trapped in a person— Victor Hugo

Ink is blood. Paper is bandages. The wounded press books to their heart to know they're not alone.

"I love you," she whispered in his ear, before taking his mouth with her own.

When you look at your life, in a strange new room, maybe drowning soon, is this the start of it all?
