Category: Weekly Posts

These are my weekly blog memes. Each day has one (Sunday has two).

Monday: Monday’s First Sentence
Tuesday: Teaser Tuesday
Wednesday: Waiting on Wednesday or WWW Wednesdays
Thursday: First Chapter First Paragraphs Thursday Intros
Friday: Friday’s Page 69
Saturday: Cover Lover Saturday
Sunday: Weekly Quote or Six for Sunday & Sunday’s TBR Updates

NOTE: Around 2019 I switched around Thursday’s and Tuesday’s posts as the Monday and Tuesday posts were too close alike. So instead of Teaser Thursday it became Teaser Tuesday, and First Chapter First Paragraphs Tuesday Intros became First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros.

Flipped through the book and landed on page 98 which really made me want to step into the book!
Morton’s library is what I dreamed libraries should look like when I was a little kid: nothing like the shabby bookshelves at my underfunded primary school. All three facing walls are decorated with floor-to-ceiling windows. Each has a “reading nook” built in and they are punctuated throughout with bookshelves that soar up to the high celling. The ceiling is a work of art itself, all original beams and plaster ceiling roses. They even have those massive ladders on wheels so you can get to the books right at the top – I swear I will have my Beauty and the Beast moment before I leave.

It was clear from her expression that Frances had guessed – correctly – that Georgiana had no prior engagements. A moment of understanding passed between them, and Georgiana realised that, although her new friend didn’t know the particulars of her former life, Frances was no fool; she knew precisely what she brought to this partnership, and all the ways in which Georgiana was lacking. If she cut her tomorrow, Georgiana would have to spend the rest of the summer – perhaps the rest of her life – embroidering pastel coloured nightmares in Mrs Burton’s parlour, reminiscing about the few glorious days she had spent in the company of the esteemed Miss Campbell.

The news that a woman had died three days before our arrival was quite worrying for Mummy. We had come to Wellspring Hotel & Spa for healing and serenity, not to learn that a previous visitor has departed for the Great Unknown. Hector and I did our best to empathize with Mummy’s fears, but, truthfully, we were very much intrigued.

I flipped through the book and ended up on page 96!
Do you ever feel small? Like so small you could fit in your own pocket? Like as small as, I don’t know, a baby, back when you had someone to cut your food and fee it to you? I wish I had someone to do that right now. Or bring me ginger ale and crackers the way Sloane’s mom does when she has cramps or the flu, the way Mom never did, not even before Darren.
I feel so small, I wonder if I’m invisible. I feel as small as a flea.
