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 (Two of a KInd and Dragon's Bait)

1st Paragraph and Teaser

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?

Rational thought and a working knowledge of hand-to-hand combat were useless when faced with the villianous power of the American house spider.

Felicia Swift stood immobilized in the corner of the warehouse, aware of the web, of the arachnid watching her, no doubt plotting her downfall. Where there was one female American house spider, there were others, and she knew they were all after her.

Two of a Kind
Susan Mallery

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!

The moon was no longer directly overhead. It wasn't exactly sinking below the horizon, but what if the dragon didn't come? What if she remained her for days, starving, fevered from the chill she was surely already catching? And what of the wolves?

I have read some of Susan Mallery so I would probably continue with Two of a Kind. I am not sure about Dragon's Bait, I normally do not read stories about dragons. But then again, I loved Cinder and Scarlet and they were not in my normal genre either. So maybe I'll wait for your review on that one.

I think they both sound a little creepy :) Enjoy your books. Kelley at the road goes ever ever on

I've been meaning to read Susan Mallery, so I would continue. Hope you're enjoying the book!

I'm not sure about this one. I'm not too fond of creepy stories. But, I hope it's what you enjoy.
