T HESE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE smells: toasting bagel, freshly cut figs, the bergamot in good Earl Grey tea, a jar of whole soybeans slowly turning beneath a tropical sun.

Happy New Year! Today, I’m taking part in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, in which bloggers share the first paragraph of a book they’re reading or thinking of reading soon.

The Night BirdHardcover – February 1, 2017

 

Worth Getting in Bed For? This was a pretty good read although it became convoluted towards the end. The idea of blocking or erasing memories was an interesting plot line and raised the ethical dilemmas faced by mental health practitioners. I really liked the main character, Frost, and would read another book in a series.

Friday Fun: Time for Some More Home Libraries

Library Lust! A favorite blog–enjoy!

findingtimetowrite

‘Tis the season to hide away from reality and snuggle up in some beautiful home libraries, with a woollen blanket, a fireplace, a cup of tea or mulled wine, a cat purring and, mais bien sur! a book or two or three.
