PRE-DRiNKS
a prequel/novella you’ve read

The Assassin’s Blade is technically a set of novellas. The Throne of Glass series ranks as one my favorites, and it wouldn’t be complete without the novellas. If anything, it’s worth reading for Sam.

THE TAXI TO ToWN
a book about travel

McKenna is the main character and she heads to Ireland from Massachusetts after finding out some information about her past. I enjoyed the lush descriptions of the places she visits while trying to track down someone to tell her more about herself. Yes, I’d like to visit Ireland one day.

TRYING TO FiND A TABLE
a book you didn’t like to start with, but then ended up loving

I was skeptical when I first read The Ninth House. I would not have read it had I not been reading it for a book club. The beginning was a bit slow, so I had to try a few times before I finally got through the beginning and then I couldn’t stop. I ended up loving it! (The friend who invited me to the book club discussion DNF’d it though.)

FIRST ROUND OF DRiNKS
a first book in a series

Midori sours are my weakness…This is my go-to drink but maybe the first round should be something new, so here’s a book in a series that I’d like to read. The Ninth House convinced me I should give Shadow and Bone a try. I have it on my reading app and forgot about it until recently so I hope to start this soon. If it’s as good as the reviews and as the book club says, I will likely be going through the Grishaverse in its entirety. If you’ve read it, I would love your take on it! Or, if you reviewed it, drop a link so I can check it out.

THE DANCe FLOOR
a book that makes you want to jump up and down with excitement

This is the last book that made me jump up and down. I was so excited when it arrived but had to restrain myself from reading it–I would have jumped to the end had I not done so. I finished it not too long ago though. Is it as good as I hoped? Yes. I couldn’t help sighing after I completed it.

THE TOiLETS
a book you wouldn’t touch with a barge pole

I don’t have a specific book that fits into this category…how about a genre?. I am terrified of horror–you won’t catch me with a copy of The Shining or anything remotely close to it. **shivers**

THE FiRST TO BAIL
the last book you DNF’d

I’m technically still working on it but it’s taking me longer to finish it than most books. It’s interesting. The beginning started off really good but I’m having a hard time with how the heroine is written and her interaction with the hero. I’m hoping to be able to pick it back up after some time away…um, a lot of time away.

THE JOURNeY HOME
a book you can’t really remember the plot of anymore

This is an older book but I suddenly started thinking about it after reading Adrienne Young’s Fable and Namesake. I haven’t read this since I was a kid but I think I might want to reread this because I do not remember who the murderer is.

THE MORNiNG AFTER
a comfort read

Rereading books make the best comfort reads. I just recently finished reading Meet Cute again and it was as good as I remember it. I still think the leads are great together. I still love that ending.

This was a lot of fun! If you need a night out, then I tag YOU!!
Please get me a midori sour while you’re out. Heh…
