“You‘re saying I‘m not smart,” she says, “Is that what you‘re incinerating?”
He says, “I‘m not incinerating anything.”
( @MrBook I thought you‘d like this!)

Also, great first line:
“Tonight a man found Dad‘s pants in a tree lit with Christmas lights.”

The Moon is Down | John Steinbeck
post image

This book has #moon and is one of my all-time favorites! It's a very short little book about the invasion of a small town and how everyone handles the aftermath--written with a somewhat absurdist tone. It's very good. #uncannyoctober #greatfirstlines

BookwormM I love Steinbeck 7y
Ms_T I‘ve developed a love for Steinbeck whilst reading East of Eden ❤️ 7y
Liz_M @Ms_T East of Eden is amazing! 7y

This is one of my all time favorite books. Every time I get a new chance to introduce it to kids, I jump on it. A new classic that should be a classic forever. #booktober #day16 #greatfirstlines

'Lady Rowena gasped in horror at the sight of Lord Raoul's majestic purple helmeted warrior of love...'

(These are the opening lines of the book but are an extract from the rather terrible romance that the main character is writing, which she reads to random people that she bumps into, as a way to assess quality)

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Bibliogirl, 😂🙈 I wasn't brave enough to use that emoticon. 8y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @EloisaJames, it's my favourite of all her books :) 8y
Seekingtardis I stumbled across her by getting an ebook deal on the Asling books. I devoured them then promptly spent $80 to buy everything else she has written! 😂😂😍 @Bibliogirl I'm dying!! 🙀😹😹 8y
Theresa Ok, this is definitely going on my TBR!! 8y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Seekingtardis, I only own two of her books... which really needs to change ☺️ 8y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Theresa, top of the stack! 8y
Dragon Sounds funny 😂 8y
ValerieAndBooks I just looked at my library catalog and the only books by an author of that name seem to be about dragons or vampires. Same person? 8y
[DELETED] 1409720085 Oh my! 😳😂 8y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @ValerieAndBooks, yep! Same person! All her books are hilarious - I think her peak publishing period was about 10 years ago - during the time when vampires and paranormal where all the rage ☺️ 8y
rabbitprincess *snorts tea out nose* 😆 8y
ValerieAndBooks @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ok! You've convinced me to try her. I'll check out at least one of those library books first! 8y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @rabbitprincess, I kind of want to reread this now 😂 it's not a safe book to drink anything with... 8y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @ValerieAndBooks, oh yay! Hope you enjoy :) 8y
