Four Fun Friday Bookish Memes

Fridays are about sharing the first sentence(s) of a current book I'm reading and a snippet from page 56 or 56% on e-reader from the same book. Fun, right? And I'm joining the BBH (Blogger Hop) to answer this week's prompt. As always, everyone is welcome - hope to see you there and sharing first sentences.......

Today's Book is:

Currently Reading:

All of Our Demise #2 by Amanda Foody & Christine Lynn Herman

Genre: Fantasy

Published 8/22; 474 pages

First Sentence(s): "Yesterday's events at the Champions Pillar have shown the citizens of Ilvernath that this year's tournament will not be fought safely beyond the Blood Veil. The battle has come to us."

Page 56: "Briony nodded, holding the stone carefully. She'd never interacted with high magick like this before. The spellstone radiated power in her hand, giving her a heady, fizzy feeling; she couldn't sense the enchantment inside, like she normally would. She tugged off her other spellrings, lest she accidentally break them ......"

Today's Question: What time of day do you prefer to read: morning, afternoon, night?

I read throughout the day, every day, wherever I find a few minutes. But, a preference? Hmmmm - maybe mornings. I have more energy and am not likely to fall asleep, so I can read more. The house is quiet because I'm always up before my husband. So, yes, mornings.

Book Blogger Hop (BBH) asks a question of general interest or discussion hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer

Hope you'll join in one or all of these fun memes and take a minute to visit the other participants. I'm surprised how many times a first sentence can send me looking for a book.

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.


For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with me, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
