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!)

Night School by Lee Child
Jack Reacher, book 21

It’s 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he’s off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind.

Two other men are in the classroom—an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there.

Then they find out: A Jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor—a Saudi courier, seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown. A CIA asset, undercover inside the cell, has overheard the courier whisper a chilling message: “The American wants a hundred million dollars.”

For what? And who from? Reacher and his two new friends are told to find the American. Reacher recruits the best soldier he has ever worked with: Sergeant Frances Neagley. Their mission heats up in more ways than one, while always keeping their eyes on the prize: If they don’t get their man, the world will suffer an epic act of terrorism.

My Princess Boy by Cheryl Kilodavis (twitter)
picture book

Dyson loves pink, sparkly things. Sometimes he wears dresses. Sometimes he wears jeans. He likes to wear his princess tiara, even when climbing trees. He's a Princess Boy.

Inspired by the author's son, and by her own initial struggles to understand, this is a heart-warming book about unconditional love and one remarkable family. It is also a call for tolerance and an end to bullying and judgments. The world is a brighter place when we accept everyone for who they are.

What do you think you'll read next?
Something Christmas-y for the Christmas Spirit Read-a-Thon/Reading Challenge
These are just the newest but I forgot about "A Holiday Yarn" by Sally Goldenbaum. I searched "Christmas" in my order history at amazon and came up with 218 titles! Granted, I've read a lot of them but who doesn't like to re-read Christmas books? Plus there's one series that is so funny, I re-read it any time!

Twelve of Santa's Elves grow up and hate Christmas. They come to earth, find each other, live together, start businesses, help people, find their mates, and in the process deal with witches, wolves and other paranormals plus one of the fathers comes calling. Great series, just a heads up . . .  it's gay erotica.
