Weekend Blog Hops - 11 January 2019

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

What is your first book of the year?
Well, I am already about eight books in... but the first one I finished in January was Kander and Ebb by James Leve.

Opening sentence:
I flicked my fingers in and out of the Bunsen burner's flame, flirting with the flickering orange and purple and grinning with amusement.

 





From page 56:
Falcon went flying downward, and I didn't stick around to see if he hit the ground or recovered from the blow.

My Current Read
Masks
Amara Lynn

Avari has always been a social outcast, which is just fine by him; he has superhuman abilities and hates people. But his lab partner Chayton keeps being so friendly, and Avari can't stop staring at his alluring smile.
When he loses control of his abilities, Avari is faced with a startling revelation about himself—one that's both thrilling and dangerous. As Avari seeks to understand Chayton, he finds himself coming out of his shell, and his connection with Chayton grows deeper.
Meanwhile, a mysterious adversary appears who may hold answers to who Avari really is. Fueled by his curiosity, Avari continues his path of destruction—but he can't help wonder if his secrets will tear apart his shaky new bond with Chayton.

  5. I've never heard of Kander and Eb, probably, because I'm not into Broadway.

    1. You may know some of their shows, though: Cabaret, Chicago...
      They also wrote the New York, New York song!
