Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

Hello Tuesday my old friend. I hope everyone is having a good week thus far and that your weekend wasn’t to tough. Still working on turning lemons into lemonade for my part, but things are a little better then they have been. A bonus is this week Avengers Endgame comes out, something my little fan girl heart has been eagerly waiting for, even though I know emotionally it is going to make me a train wreck. LOL.

Anyways on to the teaser.

“Becoming a POW and getting to the United States was his last hope to tell the world about the Death camps. He’d used his position as an SS inspection officer to travel and mail letters-while in each new city-to European Clergy and Danish and Swiss political resistance groups, notifying them about the hidden truths of the “work camps”. ” ― When We Were Brave by Karla M. Jay

Tuesday is here again. I hope everyone is having a good week so far and had a good week last week. I know it doesn’t always seem like it, because life is giving me lots of lemons to make lemonade with right now and I don’t have the time I wish I did for blogging like I used too. BUT, I really do love this blog and community. I look forward to making this post every week, I truly do. I read every reply and check out everyone’s teasers, even if I don’t manage to reply to everyone because of time. I just wanted to let you guys know that I do look and I do enjoy being able to host this weekly post.

I won’t bore you with to many details of the lemons right now, because it’s time to get a great teaser shared! This week I have opted to share a teaser from a book that I am not currently reading, but have in the past and it is from one of my favorite series. I chose to do this because my heart breaks for what happened yesterday when Notre Dame burned. The Pink Carnation series goes back and forth in its stories from England to France so I thought it would be a small fitting tribute. I love the series and while I am very behind on reading books from it, I plan to do just that once life settles down a bit more and gives me some more reading time.

Happy Tuesday book friends. I hope you had a good week last week and that so far this week you are having an alright time. Last week ended up being a bit of a train wreck for me, but that’s okay, it happens. New week new chance to work on some more goals. Like getting back to my reviews here. I have so many to catch up on! Ack! Anyways I am still playing juggle with several of my reads, lol. To relax a little bit this week I have visited an old friend while waiting on the new novel to come out.

“I don’t want to live in a world where the strong rule and the weak cower. I’d rather make a place where things are a little quieter. Where trolls stay the hell under their bridges and where elves don’t come swooping out to snatch children from their cradles. Where vampires respect the limits, and where the faeries mind their p’s and q’s. My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. When things get strange, when what goes bump in the night flicks on the lights, when no one else can help you, give me a call. I’m in the book.”

Welcome back my fellow book friends. It is already April. Wow. Is it just me or is that a little bit insane and the year is just flying on by? Last month was a rough one, with the passing of my friends Gran who was like another Gran to me. The loss really hit me harder then I thought it would. I am finding my way out of the woods with that one though. Still crocheting like a mad person though. Phoenix comic con is now less then 2 months away and I feel like I will never have enough stock for my vendor table. Ack! I am looking forward to the event though. I wish I could get into audio books more, or I wish I would stop forgetting to set my kindle to read to me while I try not to laugh at the robotic voice. Alas, I will just have to slightly bore you with another teaser from one of my 4 current reads. *insert facepalm emojoi here* I won’t bore you with the story how it got to me so many since I usually try to read just one book at a time, lol.

“Frankly, I think it’s a damned slur against the tarts to consign them to the social rubbish heap just for earning a living while praising the politicos as selfless public servants. At least bints aren’t hypocritical: you’ll never hear one of them blathering on sanctimoniously that they do what they do for the benefit of the British public.”

“Could she really do it? Could she really go all that way by herself? Yes, she whispered, of course you can do it: you’re thirty-eight years old and you’re not going to the moon, just to Baghdad. The word sounded the way a shiver felt. At the dinner party in London it had been a shiver of excitement, but now it held a frisson of dread.”

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

This week’s random question: Do you read to cope with grief or stress when it comes into your life?

Alright everyone, fair warning this weeks Musing Monday reply is going to be a bit personal. It is okay if you want to skip it, I understand. Especially since Musing Monday has been gone a little while, though I did have that little sputter start a few weeks back. I really am trying to bring it back and find questions that will spark interest for everyone. Feel free to submit some questions if you like. I am always happy to have someone reach out and have that lovely contact me page going on to make it easy. Now with that warning applied, time to dig into the question this week.

Some may wonder why I asked this question. Well Late Thursday March 7th my adopted Gran, my friend’s Gran passed away suddenly. While it wasn’t an unknown thing that could happen, it was a shock. 8 years ago she had been told she had 3 months to live, so to say she out did what the Doctor’s said would be an under statement of the century. Everyday was treated as the gift it was. In recent months mentally she had gone down hill drastically, but health wise things weren’t to terrible. The last few weeks, concerns were coming up but still manageable. Thursday it was decided that she should go to the ER and have a bed sore checked out. It was getting a little concerning and everyone agreed it should be looked at by a medical professional before it got worse. An ounce of prevention and all of that. A few hours later I was told that she passed. I thought maybe it was a joke, a bad joke but one none the less. She had been well enough and it was just a trip to get ahead of a sore. It of course was not a joke. After being triaged with a weak and thread pulse she was put into the waiting room. They took her for some x-rays and then back to the waiting room. She passed in the waiting room while her Granddaughter (my friend) read Harry Potter to her. It was fast. A team did come out and took her back to a room when things happened, but he had a DNR so as her heart had already stopped there was nothing to be done. She lived a good life. Is missed. However, we are also happy that she is no longer in pain. She is no longer confined to a bed and she is with her husband whom she loved and missed dearly.

I noticed yesterday while I read a book and kept falling asleep with my face on it, (I have been sick too…different story.) that I tend to bury myself into the world and lives of others when I am working through and processing grief of my own. I did the same when my Great Gran passed away in 2006 on St Patricks day. I miss her and I still find myself mourning on the day, while also making sure to enjoy the day because she would want me to. Reading for me helps that. When I am stressing I tend to try and read as well, although sometimes my brain just won’t focus on the words when I am overly stressed. Sometimes it makes me mad because I want to read but I guess we don’t always get what we want right? Ah well.

So there is my long reply for you. I look forward to hearing everyone elses answers.

What happens when you toss tradition out the window and really start living for yourself?

Venus Johnston has a great job, a beautiful home, and a loving live-in boyfriend named Clint, who happens to be a drop-dead gorgeous doctor. She also has a weekly beauty-parlor date with Tina, who keeps Venus’s long, processed hair slick and straight. But when Clint–who’s been reluctant to commit over the past four years–brings home a puppy instead of an engagement ring, Venus decides to give it all up. She trades in her long hair for a dramatically short, natural cut and sends Clint packing.

It’s a bold declaration of independence–one that has effects she never could have imagined. Reactions from friends and coworkers range from concern to contempt to outright condemnation. And when Clint moves on and starts dating a voluptuous, long-haired beauty, Venus is forced to question what she really wants out of life. With wit, resilience, and a lot of determination, she finally learns what true happiness is–on her own terms. Told with style, savvy, and humor, Nappily Ever After is a novel that marks the debut of a fresh new voice in fiction.
