Tuesday Memes





It's Tuesday Where Are You is a weekly meme hosted by an adventure in reading, where participants tell their location as regards their reading.

Well, I am in Barcelona right now in pursuit of a mysterious author, involved in a search that is becoming increasingly sinister.



Tuesday Intros is a meme that I've recently discovered. Hosted by bibliophile by the sea, participants are required to share the opening of their current read. Here's mine:


I still remember the day my father took me to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books for the first time. It was the early summer of 1945, and we walked through the streets of a Barcelona trapped beneath Ashen skies as dawn poured over Rambla de Santa Monica in a wreath of liquid copper.







Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. Participants share a couple of sentences from their current read.

Well, here's mine:

"Let me introduce you to Julian Carax."


"The Shadow of the Wind, " Bea read, stroking the faded letters on the cover. (Pg. 185)

    1. Thanks Diane for hosting the meme. The book, unfortunately, turned out to be a bit of a disappointment.

  4. So funny that we were both reading Ruiz Zafon this week. Also funny that both books start with grey skies -- my times in Barcelona have been mostly sunny!

    1. Barcelona is a character by itself, isn't it? Thanks for visiting.
