Random Magic Tour: Pirates
You can read my review of Random Magic by Sasha Soren RIGHT HERE.
This tour for Random Magic is related to pirates - aaarrrrgh! Pirates appear in the book (to learn more, read the novel) and to honour them, I compiled a list of top 10 fictional pirates. I provided you with links, so that you may learn more about these - for such is the truth - badass and fun pirates, m'mateys.
The pirates I chose arrrrghhh:
1. Captain Jack Sparrow (The Pirates of the Carribean movies)
2. Morgan Adams (Cutthroat Island, movie)
3. Captain Hector Barbossa (The Pirates of the Carribean movies)
4. Dread Pirate Roberts (The Princess Bride by William Goldman; movie from 1987)
5. Long John Silver (Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson)
6. Captain Hook (Peter Pan by J.M Barrie; several movie adaptations)
7. Captain Nemo (20,000 Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne)
8. Red Sonja (Marvel Comics)
9. Davy Jones (The Pirates of the Carribean movies)
10. The Master of Ballantrae (The Master of Ballantrae: A Winter's Tale by Robert Louis Stevenson)
How do you find these pirates?

True, it’s more of a sing-a-long than strictly karaoke and there’s no bouncing ball, either, but you’re a pirate -- improvise!
Mi-mi-mi-mi-mi and away we go…
This pirate sing-a-long has been brought to you -- or inflicted upon you, or your unsuspecting flat mates or neighbors, depending on the context -- by the merry crew sailing along on Random Magic Tour:
