Friday Bookish Post (February 5)

(liked to GoodReads)

I had a hard time choosing a Friday 56 because there were so many great sentences in that area of the book!

Talia pushed Death's shoulder, signaling him to lean forward on the couch, and pulled up his T-shirt so she could position her stethoscope against his bare back.
Wren was torn.  On the one hand, she was relieved that an actual medical professional was taking an interest in Death's health.  On the other hand, the pretty, blonde paramedic was climbing all over her boyfriend.  "Wren, could I get you to help me bring another round of beer and junk food?"
With a reluctant glance at Death, now with his shirt completely off, Wren followed Annie Tanner into her bright, airy kitchen.

Here's the first paragraph of the book for Book Beginnings on Fridays:

Death and the fire captain came in through the front door.  Wren Morgan came out of the kitchen with a coffee pot and three cups on a tray.  The lean black man in the St. Louis Fire Department dress uniform was a stranger to her, but she'd been watching through the blinds as the two men talked on the sidewalk and she knew who he was now.  She'd seen pictures of him in happier times, posing with Death's younger brother. Randy.

The question for this weeks Book Blogger Hop comes from Elizabeth at "Silver's Reviews":

Does your significant other share your reading passion? 

DH can flat out tear up some science fiction, but I would hazard a guess that if he is a reading fan, I am a reading zealot. ;)


So the question is:

Does "Death and the Brewmaster's Widow" sound like a book that would interest you?  Be sure to check out my review on Monday!



  1. That was a really great post! I look forward to your review of Death and the Brewmaster's Widow, it sounds really interesting!

    1. Thanks, Katie! (Even knowing it's pronounced "Deeth", it's hard not to chuckle at times while reading the book!)

  2. Great descriptions for your reading habits. :)

    Mine does not read.

    Happy Weekend, and Happy Hopping!!

  3. You have already read 84 books? Wow!!

    I am behind in my Goodreads Challenge, but I know I will catch up and reach my goal. :)

  4. I just finished this last night and really enjoyed it! I absolutely can't wait till the 3rd book! I hope you enjoy it as well. Great choice on the 56!

  5. I haven't heard of this book before, but it sounds okay.

  6. I haven't heard of this book, but I'm going to check it out further on Goodreads. I've always been fascinated by novels and movies that turn Death into a human being, especially when there's romance involved!

    It's GREAT that your romantic partner enjoys reading science fiction! My hubby only reads short articles on the Internet, mostly having to do with tech topics.

    Happy Friday!!

    Here's my own BBH post:

  7. Death's younger brother Randy, now THAT made me laugh.
    Happy weekend!

  8. Not my usual genre, but it sounds very interesting. Here's mine: Fridays

  10. Hi,
    Sounds like an intriguing book. Thanks for
    stopping by my place. Have a great day!

  11. Ooo! That does sound good! I hope you enjoy the book. I've been in the mood for a cozy for awhile now.

    My husband is a reader, although not to the degree I am. I have him to thank for my interest in science fiction. :-)
