What are we talking about today?

Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.
Monday: Running.
Tuesday: Books.
Friday: Green living.

Teaser Tuesday

Fireflies in December, by Jennifer Erin Valent. This is Ms. Valent's debut novel.

First line: "The summer I turned thirteen, I thought I'd killed a man."

"Being only nineteen himself, Luke didn't have the sense to quit the conversation."

This wasn't a book that kept me glued to it, having to know more, but it was enjoyable enough. It's a coming-of-age book, set during the Depression in the South.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm not sure I'd call it fun... but it was certainly thought-provoking.
