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!)

Spotlight: Immigration and Adaptation

I've heard say that America is a melting pot. Well, I'd prefer we were more like a stew. We'll simmer until our flavors blend together while we remain true to ourselves at our core. Does that make sense to you?

Come to the front door, bring the best of your old home to your new home. Share your old home "flavor" will us but blend in with your new home.

I was excited when I received the invitation for this blog tour, it sounds like the author agrees with me. I was disappointed when the time was didn't work. At least I can spotlight the book and advertise the tour.

Blog Tour Schedule, there are lots of giveaways too!
