Spring's Serentity Starting Line and First Mini Challenge


Well - seeing as it is after 10pm and I am just now getting to the starting post for the readathon this week, I am off to a slow start!  I am already a book behind as I wanted to try to read one book a day!  Oh well, maybe tomorrow will be better. . .

As to what I am going to try to read this week - these are on the list, but they are in no particular order.  It is going to depend on how the mood strikes me.

1. Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend by Linda Wisdom
2. The Silenced: A Novel by Brett Battles
3. Cold Wind (A Joe Pickett Novel) by C.J. Box
4. Reading Lips: A Memoir of Kisses by Claudia Sternback
5. Alice in Zombieland by Lewis Carroll and Nickolas Cook
6. The Baby Planner by Josie Brown
7. Mothers and Daughters: A Novel by Rae Meadows

I also have some books on my Nook that I am hoping to get to read at least one of:

1. Katrina, The Beginning (Royal Blood Chronicles) by Elizabeth Loraine (This is the first in a series of 4 - so depending on how it grabs me I might continue on in the series.)
2. Sudden Moves: A Young Adult Mystery by Kelli Sue Landon


For the mini challenge we are to take at least 3 of the books on our list and combine the first sentence of each into a paragraph, so I am going to go hunt down my books and pull the first 4 that I find.   Ok, I'm back - here goes -

It's the middle of the night.   Petra glanced at her watch. "Oh yeah, just another Saturday night hitting the clubs, watching the dancers, feeling blood stream out of my ears." He set out breakfast on what would be his last day on earth.


Well - that was kind of interesting.  Here are where the sentences are from:

It's the middle of the night.  (Reading Lips)
Petra glanced at her watch. (The Silenced)
"Oh yeah, just another Saturday night hitting the clubs, watching the dancers, feeling blood stream out of my ears." (Demon's are a Girl's Best Friend)
He set out breakfast on what would be his last day on earth. (Cold Wind)
