First Line Friday 56 – SquirrelTerror

This is the last of the First Line Friday 56 posts that I am going to be doing. I will still be posting quotes from page 56 and the first line, but it will no longer be officially part of either meme. Instead, as I mentioned last week, they will be more like regular reviews that… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – SquirrelTerror

First Line Friday 56 – Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds

This is a fun book! I didn't know when I initially decided to read it that it was a collection of three novellas about the same main character. But I'm really glad I picked it up. It's a much more enjoyable Sanderson book for me than the first one of his I read. (Steelheart. You… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds

In honor of seasonal reads, let's take a look into Ray Bradbury's The Halloween Tree today!

First Line Friday 56 – Ashes of Honor

First Line Friday 56 – Velveteen vs. The Seasons

Seanan McGuire's Velveteen vs. series is one of my new favorites. Velveteen vs. The Seasons is the only one I have in written form (the other two are audiobooks) so it's really the only one I've been able to include in this MEME. “First Line Fridays” is hosted over at Hoarding Books and is all about the… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – Velveteen vs. The Seasons
