One-Liner Challenge: Book and Manga Edition

A challenge to summarize the book in one sentence, and also to poke fun at it. Think of it as a one-liner roast.
— The Awkward Book Blogger


The Rules:

  • Make a post of one-sentence summaries and/or roasts of at least five books.
    At least, it says here. So there’s a minimum but no maximum? If I’m not in love with this tag already, this solidifies it.
  • No spoilers! Got it! I’ll… try. Very hard.
  • Link back to The Awkward Book Blogger so she can see your post.
    Hi! You’re awesome for making this tag by the way. Thank you very much!
  • Challenge as many or as little people as you want!
    Okay..? But I’m not sure if I should tag people or just let this be a free tag. I mean I basically tagged my self for this. Just ask J.W. Martin.
  • Have fun! Thanks! I endeavor to.

Six of Crows


Where the bad guys are still bad guys but you love them anyway.



Everyone’s life quote: Must stick to the status quo!



The world is so colorful and so is her hair.

Twilight Saga


Not all things that sparkles are diamonds. Sometimes it’s your seatmate.

Lorien Legacies Series


Where you learn to count and develop feelings for the numbers and their impending doom.

The Mortal Instruments Series


Being a shadowhunter is the coolest profession there is.

The Infernal Devices


Being a shadowhunter is second only to being a bookworm.


Gakuen Alice

Gakuen Alice

These kids are more powerful than you, so just deal with it.

Barajou no Kiss / Kiss of the Rose Princess

Barajou no Kiss

Roses are all I can remember (figures – it’s in the title), and that we must be wary of chokers.

Special A

Special A

Choose your rival wisely, they could be for life.

Kaichou wa Maid Sama

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

It’s not stalking when it’s a hot guy on your heels.

Death Note

Death Note

You will learn that sweets are a genius’ best friend, and apples may keep doctors away but not a Shinigami. (Who cares about a note anyway– not when there’s food!)

It’s harder than I thought but it’s definitely for the lazy me. Why write a long review when you can write just a few lines, right? No. Of course not. There are quotes we must hoard and characters we must admire! But I had fun doing this. Thank you again to the awesome J.W. Martin for letting me tag myself. I couldn’t have done this without you!

To anyone reading this and interested in this awesome tag, learn from me and tag yourselves already! Link to this post so I can check them out.

As always, happy reading everyone!
