Bonnie at ~Redlady’s Reading Room~ tagged me for the Bookworm Award! I have been seeing this award on other book blogs and when I saw who was tagged, I was pretty sure it would come around to me. So THANK YOU BONNIE!

It’s a meme too so here goes. Here’s how it works: Open the book closest to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following there.

Echoes From the Dead by Johan Theorin

Once again he hadn’t given Julia a straight answer. She was beginning to grow tired of it, and really just wanted to leave, but she was here now – and she’d brought cakes.

I’ll stay, Jens, she thought. For a few days. For your sake.


Now, I have to tag five blogging friends. Since this is a new blog for me and I really don’t know that many book blogger, although I follow many blogs, I also don’t know who has been tagged and who hasn’t, I just thought I would leave it open to 5 bloggers from my list so, please, if you haven’t been tagged, take a turn at this lovely meme!

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
