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
Thursday: First Chapter First Paragraphs Thursday Intros
Friday: Friday’s Page 69
Saturday: Cover Lover Saturday
Sunday: Weekly Quote & 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.

Leah sists cross-legged on my bed, snacking on a bag of honey butter chaips. I guess there’s one Kim sister who shares Korea’s obsession with turning salty snacks into sweet ones.

She and her friends rush closer to the glass wall to bow and wave to me frantically. My heart swells… and breaks a little.
“Isn’t that cute?” says Manager Kong, cracking a smile. “They think you’re someone important.”

I watch drops of water fall from the ends of my hair. They streak down my towel, puddle on the sofa cushion. My heart pounds so hard I can feel it in my ears.
“Sweetheart. Listen.”
Mom says Ingrid’s name and I start to hum, not the melody of a song, just a one drawn-out note. I know it makes me seem crazy, I know it won’t make anything change, but it’s better than crying, it’s better than screaming, it’s better than listening to what they’re telling me.

I had Random.org select a page and it decided on page 118!

“Bodkin! Get in!” yelled Wish, climbing into the cart at the front of the caravan of carts, and Bodkin climbed into the one at the back beside Xar. Wish pushed up her eyepatch, twitched her fingers… and the linked carts rose in the air, over Encanzo’s head, towards where Looter was dangling.
