Weekend Blog Hops - 23 November 2018

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book-blogger hopping.
You meet an interesting person at a club. Suddenly, they start acting as if they're a character in a novel you've read, and they are firmly convinced that they ARE that character. First, which character is it, and second, how do you react?
Loki from my own The Ragnarök Chronicles. Naturally, I am stunned for a moment, but then I pull myself together and stick with him, to ensure I'm the one leaving on his arm at the end of the night. *wink* sentence:
Face down on the hotel linen, the body.


From page 56:
I try to sit up, but I can't move my arm or my leg, even my head is pinned.

My Current Read
Yelena Moskovich

For the first ten years of her life, Jana was a simple Czech girl, a watercolour. Her days were a clock run by the Czechoslovakian State Security, snapping hidden photos in their plainclothes. Much fervent artwork was created: Man Subverting Republic (Black and White), Woman Distributing (Tryptic). Man and Woman Organizing (Reprint).

Jana was a watercolour, until the raven-haired girl Zorka came. 

Jana, now an interpreter in Paris, hasn't seen Zorka in a decade.
Aimée is in Paris too, happily married and trying to get into her hotel room. On the other side of the door is her wife Dominique, face down on the hotel linen, one hand drooping off the side of the bed, fingers curled in, wedding ring white gold like an eye frozen mid-wink.

A body now, no longer a person.

As Aimée and Jana's stories slowly circle through time and place, they lead inexorably together...

Written with the dramatic tension of a Euripides tragedy, the dreamlike quality of a David Lynch film and the imagination of a unique talent, Yelena Moskovich's
Virtuoso is an audacious, mesmerising novel of love, desire, identity and belonging.


  1. Loki is quite a character. :-)
    Your book is creeptastic!! I added you to the Linky. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Wow, this sounds like an intense story. Enjoy your current read, and have a great weekend!

  3. Oh I love both of these sentences! Sounds like an entertaining read. I'd love this I'm sure.

    Here is my Friday post. Have a lovely weekend. May your books be with you!

  4. How interesting! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “NIGHT OF MIRACLES”

  5. This does sounds interesting. I'm not sure I care for the dream-like style though. This week I am featuring Serpentine by Laurell K. Hamilton - the latest in a long-running urban fantasy series. Happy reading!

  6. That is quite the opening sentence! Hope you have a great weekend. - Katie

  7. How intriguing! Hope you enjoy it! Happy reading! :)

  8. I've looked up "The Ragnarök Chronicles" on Goodreads, and LOVE the concept! I ADORE mythology retellings!! So I've added this book to my GF shelves. :)

    Loki sounds VERY appealing, from what I read on Goodreads. I wouldn't mind running into him at a club! Of course, if the guy thought he was REALLY Loki, then I would definitely run for the hills!! Lol.

    Thanks for sharing! Thanks as well for commenting on my own BBH post!! <3 :)

    1. Thanks Maria. If you end up reading it, I do hope you'll enjoy it.

  9. I LOVE your blog hop answers. I've never read the books but it sounds like Loki is hot stuff! Have a great rest of your weekend. Here's my Hop.
