Book Beginnings (4.1.2013)

Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader.

What to do?
Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name!!

My Book Beginning:
“Jem: January 19 to 23
Even sitting in the back corner of the room, in the farthest desk from student traffic and the teacher’s line of sight, it is possible to be the center of attention. The really curious thing about it is that I can be invisible at the same time.
No one likes to look at seriously ill people. It’s awkward. It might be catching. It might happen to you some day, and that ruins the happy reality of your otherwise happy moment.”
- Wake by Abria Ma...

Feature&Follow (4.1.2013)

Q: What New Years blogging or writing resolutions have you placed on yourself?
I have done one post about this and it can be found here.
Mostly I want to increase the volume of my followers so I can start hosting book tours. I also want to post regularly. Of course I also participate the Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge and my goal is to read at least 50 books this year. And there’s going to be new awasome design soon (I hope!)..

Teaser Tuesdays (1.1.2013)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- 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!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

” ‘So why’d you come here?’ Willa folds the paper carefully, taking her time.”

-Wake by Abria Mattina

This is the first meme I participated in and I would like to find more interesting and fun memes. I’m taking suggestions!
