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

Summer Nights and Beautiful Sacrifice

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?

Shane Stryker was determined enough to never walk away from a fight and smart enough to know when he'd been beat. The beautiful redhead dancing on the bar might be everything he wanted, but pursuing her would be the worst decision he could make.
Her eyes were closed, her long, wavy hair swayed in rhythm with her body. The sensual beat of the music hit Shane square in the gut. He shook his head. Okay, it hit him lower than that, but he ignored it and the draw he felt. Women who dance on bars were trouble. Exciting, tempting, but not for him. Not anymore.

ah, but all is not as it first appears, I loved this one!

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 one is a little longer than usual...

"But the alter hadn't been there long enough for the blood running down those table legs to reach the floor."

"Maybe they wore the old one out." Jase shrugged. "Kill in the name of cartel profits. Kill in the name of an unknown god. Same results. Dead."

Hunter clenched his teeth and wished that Lina's job was curating Teddy Bears Through the Ages. But it wasn't. No matter how much he hated it, Lina was on the trail of death.

Ah, nice snippets. They definitely hint at trouble ahead.

Interestingly dark and humourous at the same time. My TT this week is HERE.

BTW -- you are a "no comment blogger", so I can never respond to your emails. You may want to look at your settings. I found out I was as well from another blogger and have since changed my setting.
