Weekend Blog Hops - 20 July 2018

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

What's your proudest blogging milestone or achievement?
Probably when I first hit 1000 followers. That seemed like a landmark moment, and something to celebrate.
Opening sentence:
Most people find the forest frightening, believing the old tales of fairies who will freeze the time in your blood, or witches who can spill your years out over the snow with only a whisper.

From page 56:
Papa and I left our books behind when we were chased from Everless, and he hasn't bothered to hide his contempt for stories since then.

My Current Read 
Sara Holland

In the land of Sempera, the rich control everything - even time. Ever since the age of alchemy and sorcery, hours, days and years have been extracted from blood and bound to iron coins. The rich live for centuries; the poor bleed themselves dry.
Jules and her father are behind on their rent and low on hours. To stop him from draining himself to clear their debts, Jules takes a job at Everless, the grand estate of the cruel Gerling family.
There, Jules encounters danger and temptation in the guise of the Gerling heir, Roan, who is soon to be married. But the web of secrets at Everless stretches beyond her desire, and the truths Jules must uncover will change her life for ever ... and possibly the future of time itself.
