First Line Friday #186

First Line Friday is a weekly feature and simple to do - grab the book nearest you and post the first line. Carrie hosts this over on her blog Reading is my Superpower.

Around five-fifteen on a sunny spring evening, Aurora Marti dragged her green plastic lawn chair onto her neighbor Altagracia Tejeda's stone porch for a chat.

Happy Reading!

Would You Rather... | #39

I began posting this back in 2018 and thought I would bring it back, given that my motivation to blog has returned with force. You might recognize some from prior use, but I am changing up which ones are paired together to give a variety of choices.

There's no real criteria or guidelines. Choose the nook you would love most if given a choice, justify it however you'd like.

Nook A

Nook B

Which one do you love most?

ARCs Update #3

So a couple days ago I did this thing, trying to get as many of my ARCs done while Eleanor has to be away with her father for a week.

I get to pick up my baby in a few minutes, YAY! This week has been so long and boring without her. But I read a lot to pass the time and it sort of worked.

Here's how it went:



Not Started

Some of the ones that are in-progress have been for a WHILE. It's kind of absurd.

All in all, not too shabby! I will get more done this coming weekend when Eleanor has to be gone again because our regular schedule resumes.

Happy Reading!

Monday Meme #45

I am reviving this little feature after eight years. You might see a couple recycled from when I did this in 2016, but they were funny then and they are still funny now. Occasionally they will be more introspective or comforting. No matter what, they will be about reading and books.

Are you also a black belt?

Happy Reading!
