I am really enjoying Katana by Cole Gibson. Though a disconnect from reality is needed to make this work, it is a fun blend of action, romance, and suspense. Perfect for fans of popcorn movies.
I saw one of my eyes-large, blue, and serene-reflected in the blade as it came toward my face. I wondered if everyone felt so at peace right before they died. I closed my eyes and waited for…I wasn’t sure exactly. I hoped it wouldn’t hurt.
I put a hold on Shatter Me by Tehereh Mafi at the library, and amazingly, a copy came in just a few days after. This is a short loan book, so I have to read it quickly. The pressure! I have heard that this is a book that you either love or you hate, so I am curious to see which camp I will fall into. Here are the first sentences.
I’ve been locked up for 264 days.
I have nothing but a small notebook and a broken pen and the numbers in my head to keep my company. 1 window. 4 walls. 144 square feet of space. 26 letters in an alphabet I haven’t spoken in 264 days of isolation.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
