Melody

First of all, I want to thank everyone who commented on my posts lately (especially the BBAW week). I just want to let you know that I read every of your comments, but just did not have the time in replying to every one of them (however I'm trying my best to visit and comment on your blog whenever I can). Work has been extra busy recently, especially with the news that we will be moving office in another few months or so. I can foresee that there will be much changes in regards to the work on top of the new environment, but then I am sure I will get used to everything given some time. After all, isn't there a saying that nothing is permanent?

I am currently reading Gone by Kathleen Johnson. Don't you think the cover makes you think of a romance novel? Well let me tell you it is much more than that; this is a story about a teacher-student affair. I will let you know what I think of the book in my forthcoming review.

Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

He remembered his first day in class last January, when her eyes had flickered over him the way a teacher's eyes will. But then hers had come back to rest. Before flitting away again.

    I understand how busy you can be when the office is getting ready to move to another. I hope in due time when everything is settle down, after the office move, that you'll be able to catch up again. Interesting teaser for the current book you're reading. Looking forward to see your review on them :)

    Wow, I haven't heard of this book, but knowing what it's about from your description ups the ick factor (and I'm wondering about the age difference between the student and teacher - not that it makes it any better). I'll be interested to see your review.

    Don't you worry, take your time. I hope the move to your new office premises is smooth!

    Wow this book has got me interested now.

    Moving offices can be tedious no?

    The book intrigues me but I don't really like the cover.


  5. What a teaser! Sounds like a good novel.

    Oh what a teaser! You'll have to tell us about this book.

    Hope all goes well with the office stuff. I'm swamped at work this week and as I feel like I didn't have a weekend I'm definitely ready for the next one :)

    Good luck with the office move, Melody! I have also been crazy busy with work and finally have some minutes to spare to visit my favorite blogs. Still a long way to go from completing my rounds but I'll get there eventually...
