Happy Friday people of book land! I hope everyone had a GREAT week. I’m super happy right now, I’ve been working with a startup and we had a major breakthrough. Yay! Some bad news… my daughter has Covid. She’s going to be fine, on the mend now, but is in college and it was quite scary for her and us. Stay safe and healthy out there everyone!
#1 I learned a new word and will endeavor to use it weekly.
#2 Plot twist
#3 I wonder what products she uses?
#4 Ah yes…the old marriage pact trope
#5 Abolish the patriarchy. I looked this one up, not wanting to fall for “fake news”. It’s true. All true.
And a question, what’s your favorite first line in a book?
I’m still listening to The War of Two Queens (it’s maybe 25 hours long!) and reading the final book in the Royals of Forsyth University trilogy. It’s wild and very spicy. Almost too spicy? I rarely think that’s possible, but here I am.
The Martian by Andy Weir certainly has an attention capturing first sentence:
LOG ENTRY: SOL 6
I’m pretty much fucked.
