Happy Reading!


  1. Some 'light' reading from me, too.....

    "The fighter jets are breaking the dark sky into giant geometric pieces as if the air were a solid object. It's 15 July 2016; the night of the attempted coup in Turkey." How to Lose a Country - The Seven Steps from Democracy to Dictatorship by Ece Temelkuran

    1. Ha, right?! Why are we so serious when it comes to our reading selectons? lol

  2. Wow, sounds intense! I hope you enjoy it!

    1. It was a great read, but totally baflling and heartbreaking how it all happened. I am not even sure how to review it!

  3. Happy Friday!
    I'm just beginning Harvest Moon by Denise Hunter.
    "It was not the sort of day when bad things happened. Eighty degrees. September breeze. Sky expanding, wide and blue, above a canopy of trees. Air thick with the fresh smell of pine and the loamy scent of earth. It was a perfect Saturday."
    That does sound like a perfect day! I hope you have an excellent weekend.

  4. My first line is from Deception by Patricia Bradley:
    Today was not a good day to die.

  5. I'm currently reading A Refuge of Convenience by Kathy Geary Anderson and the first line is: Jonas was dead.
    Hope you've had a great weekend!

  6. Well, that first line grabbed my attention for sure!
