Teaser Tuesdays: You Only Love Twice by Lexi Blake

Teaser Tuesday's is hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read

- Open to a random page

- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser.

My teaser this week is from Nook page 145 of Lexi Blake's You Only Love Twice:

She hated mean girls. Loathed them. It was one of the great things about the McKay-Taggert women - they supported each other.

"In long-term cover these are the things that ruin an operative," Ian mused. "She's trying to hold on to one thing that makes her who she was before she took the assignment."

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon

The next installment of Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon is set to take place on Saturday, October 17, 2015. This is an incredible even that happens twice per year and revolves around reading, of course. I love this event for the books and the reading but I also adore the community aspect of all the readers around the world who take part. There are other things taking place like fun little games and challenges and cheerleading but it all relates back to books and a mutual love of the written word.

It seems to me that the spring edition of this event just occurred but it has been five months already. I adore doing this in the spring and fall but there is something cozy about doing this in October. It is thankfully a little cooler and nice to have a warm drink and read under a blanket. I really hope I'm not jinxing it with that little fantasy. I don't want it to be hot and miserable. I want it to be cool and cozy.

Anyway, my kids and I will participate. It has become a tradition in our house for my daughters and I to do the 24-Hour Read-a-Thon together. We enjoy going to the library and Barnes and Noble and making our book choices. They also like to help me select books to read on my Nook. We have fun deciding on our snacks and what we're going to cook in the Crock pot for dinner on Read-a-Thon nights, too. It's almost like a holiday that revolves around books, words and being together. I cherish this event and sharing books with my daughters.
