This is not a book review...

So this week I had a freak-out. The job I have for the fall when I come back to school I have to maintain a GPA of 3.4. I started to worry about my B's and thought I could only afford to get one B and two of my other classes had to be A's. So I studied like crazy, since I had an astronomy test and finals are this coming week. I had no time for pleasure reading (which is sad considering all of the books I have that are waiting for me to get to them). All of my blog posts were ones I had saved up before, so all I was doing was working, going to school, and studying.

Luckily, I talked to my friend about it on Thursday and we went and did a GPA calculator thing and figured I could get straight D's and I'd still keep my job. Now my two B's didn't seem all that threatening. So I'm in the middle of Possession by Elana Johnson right now, but I don't have a review for you.

Instead of just hearing how stupid I've been this past week, I thought I'd share my contest entry for an ARC of Kiersten White's Supernaturally. The contest is to look at the book cover and make a fake synopsis for it. Here's the cover:
And here's my entry:
Chloris moves into a small town. There she meets the handsome, mysterious Cornelius and finds herself in love with him. When she discovers what Cornelius really is, the last of the unicorn breeders, Chloris is pulled into his supernatural world. There, Zephyrus the west wind falls in love with her and wants to take her to prom, but she refuses because she and Cornelius already color coordinated. Angered at being in a love triangle, Zephyrus causes the unicorn world's sky to turn brown and the bright yellow flowers to darken. The unicorns begin dying from lack of rainbows and colorful flowers to eat. Now Zephyrus has raised the price to save the unicorns—Chloris must marry him and change her name to Flora because he had a fling with Chloris Leachman a couple decades ago that ended badly. Now, Chloris must either give up her love and her name, or else the unicorns will all die out, and time is running short…

(Note: the fact that I used the name Flora, and that Kiersten White did too in her example synopsis, is kind of coincidence. Flora's just the name in the myth I used as inspiration for it).

Well, with all of the other clever and witty entries I'm hoping to win based off of the random drawing. But it was fun to come up with anyway.
And remember today is the last day to enter my giveaway of a SIGNED copy of The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I'll announce the winner tomorrow.
