Pick a Word and Pass It On | BOOK TAG

1. You can either take the word the person who tagged you used, or you can pick your own.

2. You must list all the books on your read list which include that word in either the title or the author.

3. Tag some friends and pass it on! Continue reading

First Lines Fridays #15

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

“Miracles do not belong to religions. Miracles belong to the desperate, which is why every religion, every philosophy, and most importantly, every fairy tale always has a moment of salvation, a eureka, an enlightenment.
