My Birthday Riddle




It's the 28th of November again, which means that I'm getting older! Yep, I can no longer say that I'm 26 even though if you asked me yesterday I probably would have said so! But from this day on I'm facing the truth: I'm 27 and proud!

Gillian Flynn: The Grownup






When I saw that there was another book by Gillian Flynn, even if it was a short story, I just had to read it! So I ran to my favorite bookstore and bought a copy of The Grownup.

From the first paragraph, since I don't usually read the back cover synopsis, it was obvious that there's yet another troubled character. And I was hooked!

It starts like this: 
“I didn't stop giving hand jobs because I wasn't good at it. I stopped giving hand jobs because I was the best at it!”

Back in time




This is my 300th post and I keep looking at the number, stunned and wide-eyed.

Teaser Tuesday #8: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

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 to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Blue as Ink





It's November already and I feel blue. Like you took me by the hand and told me to dive in a pool of dark, blue ink and I trusted you and I jumped. So, I'm blue! 

Two reasons I can identify so far for that overwhelming feeling. Because this is the month I'm getting older and because it's actually November! 

Seriously?
