A little late today, but the day is not over yet! It was my second day at my new job and then I had night classes. Busy busy…
“They edged towards the shaking box that had just been delivered.” Should they open it?? You decide what happens next.
Lyla glanced over at Jimmy, communicating silently with a lifted eyebrow. Jimmy shrugged and reached out to lift the lid off of the still shaking box. When he opened it, three black blurs erupted from the darkness and flew shrieking into the night. Jimmy screamed while Lyla stepped back to get a better look at the small, furry creatures as they quickly disappeared from view. “Ryan did good this year.”
“Bats. Why bats? I hate bats,” Jimmy mumbled to himself as he tossed the lid of the box on the floor.
“That’s exactly why,” Lyla explained simply.
Jimmy huffed in irritation before glaring across the street, eyes narrowing further when he heard the distant sound of laughter.
It’s Halloween time, so why not bats?! xD I dunno. That’s all I got, folks.
How do you think you would be described if you were in a book??
Ughhh, I strongly dislike describing myself. But here it goes. On the shorter side. Long, wavy brown hair with red and blonde mixed in. Dark brown eyes. Glasses. Freckles. Curvy, not skinny. Multiple earrings on each ear and a hand-sized tattoo on lower leg. Smiles a lot.
Can you leave a series unfinished or do you have to own all the books and try them all??
It’s pretty rare for me to not finish a series, unless I really didn’t care for the first book (which is also rare). Sometimes I’ll put a slight pause on a series, but I generally get back to it eventually. And I don’t necessarily have to own the whole series either. As I’ve mentioned many times, I prefer using the library. However, I have quite a few series I’ve bought used (that weren’t available through the library) that I need to get around to reading. They’ve been sitting on my shelf FOREVER. One day, one day. But more recently I’ve been thinking in the future I might just buy the first book and see if I like it or not, then decide if I want to buy the rest.
Have you ever bought a book because the cover was so nice??
I can’t say that I have. I’ve picked up a few books just because of their covers, but if I read the synopsis and it doesn’t interest me then I set it back down. I won’t buy a book based solely on it’s appearance. What’s the point of a pretty book if I know I’m not going to like what’s on the inside? When I go book shopping I mostly go to find something specific anyway, otherwise I mainly use the library. Unless I have a gift card, then I might just buy something I see at the store. However, it still has to interest me.
The first book that comes to mind, tell us about it. Rant.
Ummm, Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo, the third and final book in the Grisha trilogy. I still haven’t read it! I really need to. I had the physical copy from the library for WEEKS but never picked it up. Then I decided to put the ebook copy on hold but it turned out to show that there are ZERO copies available! As in there weren’t any to even put on hold. Why am I able to put a hold on it if it’s not available??? I’ve seen it once or twice before. I’m thinking they may have had copies but they were removed for some reason? I dunno. But it’s dumb. Either way, I still need to read it. I enjoyed the first two books, but I’m going to be honest, I’m mostly looking forward to reading Six of Crows. Is that bad? xD
Yes this one should have been done yesterday…whoops. I was doing so well too. But it was my first Saturday off work in a LONG time and I happened to be out all day (the past few weekends I had to schedule posts beforehand). But no regrets!
Name a book that you own starting with (pick a letter). Have you read it?? Did you like it?? If you haven’t read it, are you looking forward to it?
I pick the letter…M.
And…I don’t have many that start with that letter. I’ll go with Master of None by Sonya Bateman. No, I haven’t read this one yet. I’ve been meaning to get around to it because there’s only two books in the series, but just haven’t picked it up. It sounds like something I would enjoy, so yes! I am looking forward to it.
Free space (Ask any question you want)
Hmm, what shall I ask…myself? xD How about:
Do you read any comics??
Why yes, yes I do. Right now I am currently reading The Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers, Champions, Mighty Thor, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), and Spider-Man & Deadpool. One of my good friends got me into comics a few years ago and I love them. It’s not the cheapest hobby, but they’re soooo good! They’ve been piling up recently so I’m trying to get my butt in gear and catch up!
