Bout of Books: The Page 48 Challenge

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

  • Turn to page 48 of your current book, or 48% if you're using an e-reader.
  • Take the first complete sentence on that page and copy it.
  • Now you're going to continue the story! Ignoring the real plot or anything else you know about that book, add four new sentences of your very own. You can morph the plot completely, kill everybody off or go off on a huge tangent - anything goes!

This is going to be fun!

Here is my sentence

 page 48
"We are days away from the official start of summer and all Darcy can talk about is the Hampton's."

My Story

We are days away from the official start of summer and all Darcy can talk about is the Hampton's. Hampton's this! Hampton's that! I am seriously tired of this Hampton's talk. I take my rifle, walk into the living room where Darcy is scolding the help. I quickly position my gun between her eyes and pull the trigger. The help gasped then run off into the kitchen. I kneel next to her dead body and say "damn it Darce!" and took a deep breath as I take the pixie dust bag in my pocket and begin the healing spell.

Well, that was fun! xD
I love this challenge!


  1. Haha love your extension of the story! Betting that's very different from the actual book xD

  2. Lol! That's hilarious! I've not read the book, although I've seen the movie so imagining this scene is pretty easy.

    My Page 48 challenge is here if you'd like a look :)

  3. Okay, I really want to read the alternate version now - sounds like it'd be right up my alley! Good job! :D


Thank you for taking your time to comment and letting me know that you exist! It is always so great to hear from one of my lovely readers!
