Fun with Filling in the Blanks

I apologize for being scarce on the blog lately - things have been a little crazy these past few weeks! But I do have some exciting things to share soon, including the cover reveal for Forget Me Not (my second novel, and the prequel to Bleeding Heart) on October 16th, the blog tour for Haunting Joy by Lena Goldfinch at the end of the month, the blog tour for Love's Refuge by Sandra Leesmith in November, and hopefully another blog tour or two in December before the blog tour for Forget Me Not in January. Phew! I'm definitely keeping busy with editing and publicity projects. It's a little stressful, to be honest, but I'm blessed to have the work and the experience!

I do hope to share some reviews soon, too. But for today, I was inspired by Kara over at Flowers of Quiet Happiness to participate in a fun sort of Mad Libs/fill-in-the-blanks meme. (Kara got the outline from Books and Movies.) I can't resist bookish challenges like this! ;)

So grab a cupcake (isn't this honey-lemon one from Disneyland's Hungry Bear Restaurant adorable?) and enjoy! (I should probably save this pic I took for a post it fits better in, but hey, it's the weekend, sweets are always welcome, and this post needed a pic, so here you go!)


I filled in the following blanks with titles of books I've read so far this year.

In school I was: Swimming Through Clouds

(Daydreaming, sleeping, in a daze from late nights and too much homework...)

People might be surprised I'm: The Tutor's Daughter

(Actually, my dad's an adjunct professor at the local community college, but close enough, right?)

I will never be: Under the Never Sky

My fantasy job is: Stealing the Preacher

(How about the one from Christy? But then there's Neil MacNeill...)

At the end of a long day, I need: Shades of Mercy

(Don't we all?)

I hate it when: Though My Heart is Torn

Wish I had: Five Days in Skye

My family reunions are: Into the Whirlwind

At a party you'd find me with: My Fair Godmother

I've never been to: Doon

A happy day includes: The Letters

(...of the alphabet, or ones from friends and family in the mail!)

Motto I live by: Roses Have Thorns

On my bucket list: Chasing Jupiter

(Why not?)

In my next life, I want to be: The Fairest Beauty

(Because I'm already dazzlingly clever and angelically good. *wink*  ← Reference to Anne of Green Gables)


Have you read any of these books? How would you fill in the blanks? Do feel free to share!

Aw, this was cute! I've never seen it done before, but yeah... too cute! Great humor and sense of creativity, Amber. :)

Amber Stokes said...


So glad you enjoyed/got that! ;) Oh, how I love that show! (Sad to say, I haven't read all the way through the book yet...)

And your comment made me realize I misspelled his last name - oops! I'll correct that now. ;)

Thank you so much! When I saw Kara's post, I went to work on my own responses right away - couldn't resist. :)
