Day 2 Mini Challenge @ The Bookish Type

Challenge: Pick any book from your read-a-thon pile and write a fake synopsis based solely on the cover. The synopsis does not have to be related to the actual book at all, just the pretty, pretty cover.

Answer: I chose to do this one for Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey! :) Be warned I kind of suck at this!

Synopsis by Mimi: Sixteen-year-old Hana has always loved water. And everyone in her town knows that the beautiful yet strange recluse would much rather swim in her backyard pond than hang out with anyone that tries to befriend her. 

One day, Hana comes across a strange frog floating on a lily pad in her pond. Strange because it's purple... and dead. But the moving, talking, and breathing amphibian — whom Hana names Violet, and claims to be a zombie knows a secret, and she won't leave until Hana can guess what it is. Will Violet be able to teach Hana that having company is better than living alone? Or will Hana only be driven to crave for solitude even more, after the traumatizing death of her mother?
Ta-da! With zombie frogs and a really mysterious plot, it sounds like something you'd want to read, right? ;)

  1. I usually do not create a comment, but I browsed a few of the remarks here "Once Upon a Read-a-Thon: Day 2".

    I do have some questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be only me or do some of the remarks come across like they are
    left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing
    at other social sites, I'd like to follow you. Could you make a list of all of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
