My Blog is moving!

I’ve been thinking of this for quite a while.  When I first started blogging, I did not understand blogger.  WordPress was simple and I could get the blog to look the way I wanted to pretty easily.  Now that I’m 9 months into this, I’ve decided I really dislike wordpress.  I see features on other blogs that I would like to be able to use, but I can’t because wordpress is very limited in features.  I’ve wanted to move for a while, just didn’t know how to do it without losing all my content.  I did not want to start from square one.  I’ve worked hard at this!  I finally figured out how to move everything straight to blogger.  Now, a lot of my links within pages (like my list of books that link to their reviews) will point to wordpress for a while.  It will take me some time to go through and fix all those.  But, it’s all there!  So without further ado, my new website is

www.onebooktime.blogspot.com

So, please come take a look, start following, and if you already do please update your urls!  I thank you for sticking with me for the past 9 months and hope you will for more!

Teaser Tuesday!

teasertuesdays31 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!

My Teaser:
     And then, of course, Brigan appeared in the doorway to say hello to his mother and to bring Fire back to her horse, and immediately Fire felt herself revert to a child.  Some part of her brain went missing whenever this soldier came near.  It froze from his coldness.

My Teaser:
     “Many men,” said Mr. Tippen, taking a large pinch of snuff, which immediately brought on a bout of sneezing, “spend their lives living in the wrong corner of their souls, mainly out of fear of what they might find on the other side.”

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is now brought to you by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through A World of Books!

I’m amazed that I managed to get 3 books in last week.  Granted it didn’t hurt that my last book was a fast read and I couldn’t sleep last night.

I started the week with a book from Around the World Tours that I’ve been dieing to read!   It was Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves.   Let’s just say that this book was crazy.   I enjoyed it, but it’s not for everybody.

I decided to chug along with Voyager by Diana Gabaldon next.  I’m so glad that I did.  I’m debating if I may have liked it more than Outlander.  Probably not, but it’s a close second!

I started and finished The Mark by Jen Nadol yesterday.  It was a really fast read for me.  I really liked it.  Much better than my recent read that had the same sort of idea.

I’m not currently reading anything at the moment.  I will start something today.   I haven’t decided yet which order to read them, but my plan is to read The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner, Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke, and The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan this week.

Hope you have a great reading week!
