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!)

Terrific Tuesday

Stay at Home Dead and A Graceful Death

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

The dead man in the backseat of my minivan wore a T-shirt that read "It's not a beer belly. It's a fuel tank for a sex machine."
"Daddy, who's the man in my car?" Carly asked, leaning over in the shopping cart to get a better look through the window.

Stay at Home Dead
Jeffrey Allen

I didn't want to type out the description of the fat man or the wound but loved the 4th paragraph. :D

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!

“This will be our home for a while,” she said to Daisy. “You’ll love having your own garden.”

Along the pathway spring flowers bloomed. They waved in the wind beckoning Giovanna. She pictured her Aunt opening the door and welcoming her with slender arms. Those arms that hugged her, protected her, loved her. But Aunt Grace was dead.

As she removed the key from her pocket and inserted it into the door, a loud crash came from inside the house. She froze.
