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!)

Thoughts on...Pieces of a Rainbow

Not sure of my thoughts on this one.

Each story feels like a diary. You don't get the whole picture, just pieces. I can tell you that Mystic Purple and Forever Blue were my favorites but that may be because I didn't have to think deeply. They were more lighthearted than the others, still thought provoking, just more lighthearted.
Love is like the ocean.

The ocean is so wide and deep, no one really knows its limits. That’s just like love. If you jump in, you don’t know if you’re going to fall in too deep, or if you’ll ever come out alive.
then later....
They never saw each other again, although Jeremy often thought of her when he thought of the sea.

Most of them are sad even if there is a sort of happy ending. Except Seeing Red. That one was a tearjerker. I think this one will be with me a while.
