 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is Top Ten Opening Lines. I like this topic! I totally picked these at random, though, if I'm honest. These aren't like my favorite first lines of all time or anything, although I DO like them! But it was fun picking them out...        

The Shark Club

"Tucking away a long strand of hair that floated in front of my scuba mask, I kicked through the blue- green waters of Bimini on the last day of my research term, keeping watch for Sylvia, a five-foot, four-year-old lemon shark I'd named for oceanographer Sylvia Earle."

The Blue

"The paintbrush slips from Lana's fingers, turning through the air as it falls." 

Eight Hundred Grapes

"My father has this great story about the day he met my mother, a story he never gets sick of telling."

Sanctuary Bay

""First time on the water," the captain said."

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)

"He drank his way across the narrow sea."

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide, #1)

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun."

Replica (Replica, #1)

"On very still nights sometimes we can hear them chanting, calling for us to die."

Obsidian and Stars (Ivory and Bone, #2)

"The day is so new, it's barely day at all. Yet we are already far out on the blue water, gliding under the blue sky. The first rays of the sun paint long stripes of light on the surface. I watch that light- watch it shimmer and ripple until the movement makes my head swim." 

Bad Girls with Perfect Faces

"We were holding hands, palm against palm. "

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)

"As she woke up in the pod, she remembered three things."

Song Lyrics #44


Turn Me Loose - quintessential 80's.  :) 

I was born to run
I was born to dream
The craziest boy you ever seen 
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all 

And I was here to please 
I'm even on my knees
Making love to whoever I please 
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all 
And then you came around
Tried to tie me down
I was such a clown
You had to have it your way
Or no way at all 

Well I've had all I can take
I can't take it no more
I'm gonna pack my bags and fly
Or no way at all 

So why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose 
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all 

Why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I want to fly

I'm here to please
I'm even on my knees 
Making love to whoever I please
I gotta do it my way
I gotta do it my way
And then you came around
Tried to tie me down
I was such a clown
You had to have it your way
Well I'm saying no way 

So why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose 
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all 

Why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I want to fly

So why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
Or no way at all

Why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I gotta do it my way

Why don't you turn me loose
Turn me loose
Turn me loose
I gotta do it my way
I want to fly

Turn me loose

Sunday Post #351

So I ventured onto Facebook this week and that didn't last long. Don't get me wrong, I have family and friends on there, but I stopped using it a few years ago for the most part, and re- engaging didn't really... change my mind? The political stuff, to be sure, but also the misinformation? I mean, sure, Twitter can be a mess too, and any social media really, but at least with Twitter I have the book community and bloggers, right? I realized I like my book blogger friends a lot more. There are still people on there that I care about, and love reconnecting with, but as a platform... I just can't do Facebook anymore.    

The news this week here in Michigan are the floods. Two dams breached and serious flooding happened near Midland, which is right around where I grew up. You can see some of it here.   



And the Bookish Games continue. This seems apt.

Here's another look at the flooding. The green structure is the rooftop of the Farmer's Market and at about 40 seconds in you can see the Tridge (local landmark- basically a tri- bridge) surrounded by flooding.
