Weekend Blog Hops - 4 January 2019

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book-blogger hopping.
Any books you are looking forward to for 2019?
Well, I look forward to reading all the ones I got for Xmas! In terms of new releases, I haven't looked ahead too far yet, but I am excited for the final book in the Winternight trilogy by Katherine Arden.
Opening sentence:
--Something a little strange, that's what you notice, that she's not a woman like all the others.


From page 56:
--No peeking. Wait, I'll let you handle it, to see whether you can guess.

My Current Read
Kiss of the Spider Woman
Manuel Puig

Sometimes they talk all night long. In the still darkness of their cell, Molina re-weaves the glittering and fragile stories of the film he loves, and the cynical Valentin listens. Valentin believes in the just cause which makes all suffering bearable; Molina believes in the magic of love which makes all else endurable. Each has always been alone, and always - especially now - in danger of betrayal. But in cell 7 each surrenders to the other something of himself that he has never surrendered before.


  1. Sounds very interesting... I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!

  2. Now I am curious. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend. Here's mine: “THOSE OTHER WOMEN”

  3. Sounds interesting. I hope you are enjoying it. This week I am spotlighting The Paragon Hotel by Lyndsay Faye. Happy reading!

  4. Looks good and definitely like it'd keep you turning pages! I hope you're enjoying it!

  5. Is this the book they made the play from? I didn't realize it was a book. I'm highlighting BEARTOWN today

    1. Yes. There was a play (done by Puig himself), then a film (1985), then a musical by Kander and Ebb in the early 90s.

  6. What an interesting premise. I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  7. ENJOY your Christmas books, and thanks for coming by my Blog Hop Post.

  8. I love that cover! Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great weekend! :)
