The Book Game: Part 2

Once again my relatives were over and we played the Book Game (see previous post). We didn’t have a lot of time, so we only played three rounds. I’m happy to say that I won the game with two correct guesses, and three extra points for each time someone chose one of my sentences. This time I saved all the sentences, so if you’d like to play along, try to guess the real first sentence for each book below. The answers are at the end. Click on a book to read about it on Amazon (or even buy it if you want).

She’s flying into the unknown with a rough-looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn’t be more foreign to her privileged existence.

Sentences:

  2. Lucy couldn’t breathe.
  3. Today was Lucy’s wedding day, and it was the happiest day of her life.
  4. Her eyes blinked open to start her perfect day.
  5. Lucy’s heart was racing, almost as fast as the motorcycle she’d escaped on, leaving behind her doting family, irresistible fiancé, and perfect life.

Netflix Confuses “Etymologist” with “Entomologist”

After making a comic on the subject , I noticed Netflix got it wrong in their description of Mimic:

I’m not sure how an etymologist will help stop giant cockroaches, so I guess I’ll have to watch the movie to find out!

Michael Has Left

Christine sent me this photo:

What some of you may not know is that “Soon” is actually a small town in Wyoming; Michael is there hanging out with Elvis and Tupac. You heard it here first.

Thanks, Christine!
