Hello lovelies <3,
We were tagged by the wonderful Ashley to do the #bookcoverguessingchallenge. This might as well be our first post that isn’t a review or an award on our blog. It might come off silly, but this challenge basically asks you to pick pretty well-known novels that you have none to little knowledge about and try to guess what the story is about. Afterwards, you are to compare your description with the blurb of the novel on Goodreads. Fairly interesting challenge if you ask me. After all, aren’t we all a little guilty for judging some books by their covers? As long as a pretty book cover isn’t your only criteria for a must-read. :O So how about it? Let’s give this a go !
H is for Hawk by Helen McDonald
Trang: She thinks that the book might have something to do with a history teacher that’s insanely in love with animal predators, creatures of war. And one of those creatures is the one on the cover. This teacher, insane as he is, wants to become a hawk and so he studies and learns every strategy and technique these hawks use and use them for himself. That way, he can apply them to humans and dominate others. After all, hawks of like the meanest beasts out there when it comes to survival and attack.
Lashaan: I believe this book is about Falcone the Eagle. Falcone wants to become a hawk cause being the best eagle out there isn’t enough for him. He wants to see what hunting creatures through the eyes of a hawk is like. He then meets with Maroni the Hawk. The biggest, meanest, cruelest and oldest hawk out there. This hawk doesn’t age. This hawk is forever young, wild and free. It travels the world and doesn’t give two cents about other birds opinion. Falcone, seeing that Maroni isn’t the lifestyle for him, learns to avoid hawks and tries to find ways to make Maroni his prey. Only to get rid of such a lifestyle from his life.
