Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Terrific Tuesday

Do I have anything interesting to say? ~~pause~~

Guess not.

Hey, turns out I do have something to say ;-) I have completed 16 challenges so far and that completes #17, Reading Challenge Addict!

Hope everyone has a great day!

One Summer and Repairing Rainbows. . . .

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


After having spent more than a decade in war zones and other hot spots around the globe, Gabriel St. James was an expert at zeroing in on a shot.

Even when that target was in a bustling crowd of people, as this one was.

Unlike most people on the planet, Gabriel hated weddings....

(I just had to throw in that last sentence!)




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read Open to a random page
2. 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!
3. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Everything looked and felt real. Dreams can seem just like real life. But then you wake up and it's all over.

I was more than ready to wake up.

I like the intro, but don't think I could read this book:( Hope it's not too sad for you.

Book Dragon said...

@ Diane - the funny thing is that he isn't a sniper like I thought, he's the wedding photographer! Turned out to be a great book.

@ Kristin - thank you

@ Tribute Books Mama - it is a sad story but it turns out great and I loved it. My review goes live on the 25th.

I thought he was a sniper too! I am listening to a book with the same title, different author.

Book Dragon said...
