Friday Memes 9/5

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
How many bookcases do you have, and are they all in one room or different rooms? 

My Answer:
I have 5 1/2 (one I share with my sis) and five of them are in my bedroom with the sixth shared one right outside our bedroom door!

Kylie Wilde's right hand tightened on the hammer as she stared at her roof. A shingle flapped in the endless summer wind. A storm was brewing over in the Rocky Mountains, blast it. She was going to have to go up there and nail that board down or sleep under a downpour
Tried & True by Mary Connealy

My Thoughts
Great beginning! Not quite as quick into the action as some of her other books but it does give you a good look at the kind of woman the heroine is!

I unfortunately only have two bookcases at the moment here at university, but I have more books at home! I can't wait for the day I can fill a room with my bookcases and have them be there for longer than a year! The beginning is interesting, but I'd have to read more before I knew whether I enjoyed it or not. Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend.

All those bookcases sound lovely. I have some space issues at the moment but I'm looking forward to adding some more bookcases! Love the beginning! I'm curious to know more about Kylie.

That is a lot of bookcases! :)

I like the opening to Tried & True. Kylie sounds like a strong, self-sufficient character, and I'd like to get to know her better.

I don't envy the character to have to fix a roof. :)

5 1/2 bookcases is good number. I have two big ones and three small ones. I think. :)

Thanks for sharing.

My book beginnings link is below, but please stop by the blogger hop post too if you like.

I agree with your approach on the heroine. I love female characters who are risk-takers, do not hold back and step into roles that not many female characters would; hope you enjoy your read! :)

Juli-That would be hard not having all of your books in one place! I love just staring at the titles on my shelves!

Katherine-I just added a new bookcase since I was running out of room too!

Billy-Yeah but since I have a lot of books I need them!

Sandra-She is a fantastic character and I hope you meet her soon!

Elizabeth-It's nice to be able to have all of my books fit!

Claudia-Me too!
