First Book - Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor
I finally picked out Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor. This is the first book in her new series The Chronicles of St. Mary's. I received an advanced copy from Edelweiss Above the Treeline in exchange for an honest review (which I will post later.) So far it seems interesting.
Some of my favorite quotes from the first chapter:
"Studying history opened doors to other worlds and other times and this became my escape and my passion." - I liked this because it's the same way I feel about reading books.
"Silence holds no fears for me. I never feel the urge to fill it as so many other people do." - I thought this was an interesting way to think of filling those awkward silences in conversation - a fear of silence.
"Although the phrase 'time-travel' is so sci-fi. We don't do that. Here at St. Mary's we investigate major historical events in contemporary time." - Such a sophisticated way to describe time travel.
"But as Lisa Simpson once said, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." - Everyone's all-time favorite quote.
I'm really looking forward to finishing this book and the rest of the series to follow!
