“When Henry VIII had broken from Rome, and the monasteries were sacked, Batchcombe turned it’s face away, and not a pitchfork was raised in protest. The monks’ place of worship and home for centuries was raped, plundered, and defiled, left a craggy heap of stone.”

Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is a meme hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was productive and I hardly yelled at my kids. 🙂

For today’s Musing Mondays, I am going to tackle a few of the topics. First, I am currently reading:

The Dead House

Two decades have passed since an inferno swept through Elmbridge High, claiming the lives of three teenagers and causing one student, Carly Johnson, to disappear. The main suspect: Kaitlyn, “the girl of nowhere.”
Kaitlyn’s diary, discovered in the ruins of Elmbridge High, reveals the thoughts of a disturbed mind. Its charred pages tell a sinister version of events that took place that tragic night, and the girl of nowhere is caught in the center of it all. But many claim Kaitlyn doesn’t exist, and in a way, she doesn’t – because she is the alter ego of Carly Johnson.

Carly gets the day. Kaitlyn has the night. It’s during the night that a mystery surrounding the Dead House unravels and a dark, twisted magic ruins the lives of each student that dares touch it.


I bought the following books in the past week…

I went a little crazy. Especially since Christmas is coming and I am hoping to get a lot of books. One exception is The Widow.  I received this an Advance Reader Copy so that makes it better….right?

And finally, This Week’s Random Question…if you were forced to choose the best season for reading (in your own opinion), what would it be? Why?

Immediately I wanted to say Winter but then I thought about how many books I actually read this summer and I guess it is Summer! I enjoy reading in Winter a lot though. Sitting by the fire, snuggling under a blanket, cup of tea….Can I just choose both? I choose both!

Have a great week!

“What size do you want to be?” it asked. “Oh, I’m not particular to any size,” Alice hastily replied; “only one doesn’t like changing so often, you know.”

“A shallow pit had been dug a few hundred yards into the woods behind the compound. The pit was for burning bodies.”

Memes

I really like the idea of doing bookish memes.  I think, as a new blogger, it will help me to get used to posting almost daily.  Also, I think they give me the opportunity to get to know other bloggers.

My problem is this…I cannot find a lot of active memes!  Maybe I am not looking in the right place. Maybe Wednesdays and Thursday are not big meme days.  I have found some – but none that have jumped out at me and screamed do me! do me!  Or worse, I find one I really think would be cool and it is no longer active.

So I am asking you, bloggers of the world, what memes do you do that you really love?
