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 & 1st Paragraph

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!

I treasured this time alone on Margo's estate every year--at least, I had before. Maybe they were right, maybe it wasn't safe anymore.

Every Tuesday, she'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of her current read. Why don't you join us?

It’s not every day a girl gets attacked by an ogre. They really aren’t as vicious and bloody-thirsty as people think. They just look grumpy all the time, because it’s part of their demeanor. I’m convinced that inside they’re really just big, smelly softies who love hugs and melt at the sight of puppies.

That’s why I was so surprised when one strangled me.
