I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Teaser & Top Ten Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"Every Christmas Eve from the time she was eight years old, Sarah Collier baked kismet cookies, slept with a handful under her pillow, and dreamed of her one true love.
.....On the Christmas morning when she was fifteen years old, Sarah woke with the sweet taste of fantasy in her mouth. Smiling, she ran the tip of her tongue over her lips."

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. If you can't come up with ten, don't worry about it---post as many as you can!

1. read review books - I'm seriously behind in this

2. review my review books - it looks like I'm cheating but I've read six of the review books and there is no review posted so I'm making it it's own resolution.

3. no new books - I don't know how long this will last but I have a huge backlog of TBR books in addition to review books

4. read my own books - this means no library or borrowed from a friend books, I've got plenty in the house already, thanks.

5. meaningful, fun and quirky blog posts - don't do memes everyday and off-topic posts are just fine. Find pictures that Scott has taken.

6. tour books - tragically failed in my duties as a blog tour stop. I have a pile of books that need to be forwarded. Find out where they are supposed to be.

7. contest winners - I don't know if I ever mailed them their books, how awful is that?

8. books in storage - I hate to do it but I have so many books, I've got to box some of them up and send them to storage. I'm entering them in Library Thing first with "file box #" as a tag so I can find them again.

9, 10 & 11. visit, comments, blog hop - there are several blogs I like to visit and I want to do it more. Meaningful comments should be made. I like to jump to blogs from their blog roll.

12. comment back - you've stopped by and taken the time to talk to me - I should talk to you too.

My resolutions are pretty laid-back this year. Yours are quite difficult, I think. Good luck!

You're very disciplined! I have so many books to read here in the house but I could not give up going to the library!

Oooh getting contest wins out is an important goal! And at least when you send them all out you're done with that goal unless you decide to hold another contest :)
