123 Tag

Well I have been tagged by Abby to do the Pages 123 tag.

Choose 3 novels, go to page 123 in each, skip the first 5 sentences, then write out the next five sentences. When you're done tag 3 other bloggers.

The first book is Wake by Lisa Mcmann. It's a book that I tell all my friends to read. When I first started reading this book I had sworn that I'd read it before, I'm still not sure if I had...

She thinks about how he was willing to quit the job, wreck the months of progress the detectives had made, just to get things right with her.

Captain was right. He was a good guy.

Janie studies past midnight, partly hoping Cabe will come by. By one a.m., she's nodding over her work.

The next book is called Blue Moon by Alyson Noel. It's part of the Immortals series, Maly made me read the first one and I got hooked :)

"Ever-" she starts, her voice warm and gentle, her eyes kind.

"It's not what you think," I tell her. "It's not that at all. Damen and I didn't break up, we weren't having problems, it was nothing like that. It's like, one day everything was great-and the next-not."


The third novel is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, an oldie but a goodie. This is my nan's favourite book and she challenged me to read. It took me about 2 months of stopping and starting to actually finish it, because the language is so old. Well after all it was first published in the 1847.

"What a beautiful room!" I exclaimed, as I looked around; for I had never seen any half so imposing.

"Yes; this is the dining-room. I have just opened the window, to let in a little air and sunshine; for everything gets so damp in apartments that are seldom inhabited: the drawing-room yonder feels lika a vault."

She pointed to a wide arch corrosponding to the window, and hung like it with a Tyrian-dyed curtain, now looped up.

I am tagging Selina, Evie and Camelgirl.

Oopsies I already tagged Seli when I tagged you, but I guess when she posts it she can just say she's been tagged by both of us.

thank you so much!
this is my first ever tag, and it's a pretty cool one cause it has something to do with books!
i just finished reading Wake and Bluemoon, and they're great.
when i saw Wake on the library self i thought, "oooh finally, a book that doesn't contain romance."
Boy, was i wrong.
i'll do the tag as soon as i can! =)
