Yesterday's Bout of Books challenge was to write a poem using book spines. Today's challenge is to come up with alternate book titles based on a book's cover or story.
Alternate Title: The Dangerous Hot Guy is Watching You... Always
Since I review recentish books, I haven't been able to talk about my favorite trilogy ever: The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith. The great thing about the alternate title for this series is that it is accurate for both the covers and the books!
"When Jenny buys a game for her boyfriend, Tom, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the guy behind the counter. There is something mysteriously alluring about Julian's pale eyes and bleached-blond hair. And when he places the Game into her hands, she knows their connection is comething deeper.
But as Jenny and her six friends begin to play the Game at Tom's birthday celebration, a night of friends and fun quickly turns into a night of terror and obsessive love. Because the Game isn't just a game - it's the seven friends' new reality, where Julian reigns as the Prince of the Shadows.
One by one the friends must confront their phobias to win the Game. To lose the Game is to lose their lives. And that is only the beginning..."
Yes, hot, stalker, bad boys are absolutely the perfect male characters in fiction. Notice, I did say fiction. Guess who is getting added to the Book Boyfriends list?
