Welder by Day, Dancer by Night + {Tune In Tuesday}

For today's Tune In post, I've decided to merge it with my Meg-a-Readers story for today.
Because it's not like I haven't been doing the same throughout the summer, by which I really mean twice.

This actually doesn't have much to do with Meg Cabot, it's more a story about me. But of course the story of me usually does involve her books.

Last year during our Meg-a-Readers event I mentioned that I've never seen the movie Flashdance but because of Meg Cabot I thought it would be pretty cool to be a welder by day and dancer by night. (Unfortunately I think I said that on Twitter and it has since disappeared.)
But I also said that it could have very much happened.

Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It's probably not even fair for me to do this list because with the number of Meg Cabot books I own every other book is like at zero. If I had shelves Meg would probably have two.

My Favorite Opening Lines In Meg Cabot Books

Meg Cabot making me ask questions since 2003, although technically I didn't start "questioning" until 2005 late 2004. Her openings might not be intense heart stoppers but they still get your attention by making you want to know what's going on.
I witnessed the kidnapping of Betty Ann Mulvaney.
(Teen Idol).
Who is Betty Ann Mulvaney? And why would you let her get kidnapped?

It was a miracle.
(Insatiable)
What was a miracle? Knowing that Insatiable is about a character that sees when someone is going to die you have to tie that in.

Of course, like I mentioned, since they rarely ever start that climatic the fact that I still think it's gonna go somewhere beyond Meena Harper making her train says a lot also.

Meg-a-Readers Week!


It's year 3 of the Meg-a-Readers!

And leave it to me to look at my phone the other night and start freaking out that tomorrow is the 28th and I had nothing for an opening post!
Then I looked at the time and realized it was midnight and I still had a whole day.
