Weekend Blog Hops - 25 May 2018

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book blogger hopping...

Do you remember the first book you read by yourself?

Honestly, no. It's too long ago. I remember some series I read as a child--Puddle Lane, the Mr. Men books, The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Babysister's Club.... Of those, Puddle Lane and Mr. Men are probably the ones I read earliest, but I couldn't give you a definite title or year.

Opening sentence:
Cary Westfield wasn't a terribly catchy name for a magician, so the playbill read The Incredible Mr. Mars.





From page 56:
Sharing a bed with a guy who had mugged him only a few hours ago would certainly be a fitting way to cap this bizarre day, wouldn't it?




My Current Read 
A Touch of Magic (Fae-Touched #1)
Isabelle Adler

After returning to the straight and narrow, Cary Westfield hopes to rebuild his life as a stage magician. Only thing is, the success of his new show is entirely dependent on a strange medallion inherited from his late grandfather—an amulet that holds a rare and inexplicable power to captivate the wearer’s audience.

Ty prides himself on his ability to obtain any item of magical significance—for the right price. When a mysterious client hires him to steal a magical amulet from a neophyte illusionist, he’s sure it will be a quick and easy job, earning him a nice chunk of cash.

As it turns out, nothing is sure when greed and powerful magic are at play. When a mob boss with far-reaching aspirations beats Ty to the snatch, Cary and Ty form an unlikely partnership to get the amulet back. The unexpected spark of attraction between them is a welcome perk, but each man has his own plan for the prize.

All bets are off, however, when it is revealed the magical amulet holds a darker secret than either of them had bargained for.
