“Sweetwater, Texas, is best known for our energy-saving windmills along the I-20 corridor between Fort Worth and Odessa and for the Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup, which is an entire event dedicated to measuring, weighing, milking, decapitating, and skinning snakes.”

Well that first line definitely grabbed my attention! Right now I’m reading VAMPIRES NEVER GET OLD, an anthology about, you guessed it, vampires. I’ve just started Julie Murphy’s SENIOR YEAR SUCKS, and that is the first line, which uh.. really sets the mood!

  1. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading The Crushing Depths by Dani Pettrey. I’m on chapter 41, so I’ll share from there.
    “When Logan left to meet Bella Armstrong at a coffee shop and Emmy was engrossed in searching for answers on Rick Carson, Noah grabbed the folder Austin Kelly had given them and tucked it under his arm.”
    Hope you have a relaxing weekend! 🙂❤📚
