Book Diving: The First Adventure


In the VERY first edition of Adventures in Book Diving, I have five books. (Show of hands to see how many think I will always have five books?!) Here they are:

A) Thirsty by M.T. Anderson (1997) (Paperback Reprint 2008) (Completed April 28thish)
B) The Opposite of Music by Janet Ruth Young (2007) (Completed April 29thish)
C) To Catch A Mermaid by Suzanne Selfors (2007)
D) Reincarnation by Suzanne Weyn (2008) (Abandoned April 27thish)
E) The Book of Time by Guillaume Prevost (2007) (Completed May 9thish)

A) In the spring, there are vampires in the wind.
B) Resting one hand on the corner mailbox, I balance different ways on my bike.
C) Boom Broom awoke to find his little sister, Mertyle, looking for spots.
D) The flickering campfire played across the full belly, wide hips, and torso of the faceless figure chiseled into the cave wall.
E) Samuel Faulkner's trouble with time started at 9:48 Saturday morning.

I love the idea of this new feature! I look forward to reviews and future installments.

Looks like a great first dive, Becky! I'm really interested to see what you think of The Book of Time. I've almost bought that in the past. And I don't think I've every heard anyone say a word about it. And though I have to admit I'm not really a vampire gal myself, I do like that first sentence of Thirsty. Have fun, Becky--hope they're all winners!

Thirsty's my pick. That first line is a killer.

I have Thirsty in my pile. It would be helpful to me if you could add publication dates as well. Just an idea!

The cover and first line of Thirsty definitely got my attention, but I'm totally curious about The Book of Time. And To Catch a Mermaid is a great title!

Great Becky! I've been wanting to read Thirsty!! That one looks fantastic!

Of those "The Book of Time" is the one I'm most curious about; I liked the first sentence too - who doesn't have trouble with time (too little of it, usually), although I doubt his trouble is of that ordinary kind.:) L.

The Book of Time is my choice too!

Looks like you've got your work cut out for you again! Winchester is willing to come back and help, if he can watch "Dancing With the Stars" and "What Not to Wear."

The first line of Thirsty is a killer, but I am more interested in what you think about The Book of Time. By the way, do drop by my blog, Advance Booking, I have a little gift for you.

I'm not a fan of M.T. Anderson but "The Book of Time" sure looks interesting!

To Catch a Mermaid. It was quite cute, in an odd sort of way. :)
