Express Yourself is back!

After a month's hiatus in April during the A-Z Blogging Challenge, those lovely ladies at the Express Yourself headquarters are back once again with some new topics for the month.

To be honest I was quite glad they'd taken the break. I've enjoyed posting for their topics but the Challenge alone sent my head into a spin at times, so it was nice to have fewer things to focus on.

For those new to Express Yourself, it's hosted by Jacqui at Bouquet of Books and her partner in crime Dani at Entertaining Interests.

Each month they list topics to get the blogosphere talking so we can learn a little bit more about each other, with a week for posting each one. The topics for May are:


So, this weeks topic: Choose one of your favourite books, and turn to page 89. What are the eight and ninth sentences?

Rather than my favourite book I'm going to use the book I'm currently reading. This is mostly because we're getting all packed up for moving and the books were the first things to be put away!

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2) 

I'm reading George R R Martins, A Clash of Kings at the moment and about a third of the way through. 

On page 89, the eight and ninth sentences are:

"They smell of summer," Jon said as Ser Endrew bullrushed his foe and knocked him sprawling. "Where did Conwy find them?" 

Are you up for Expressing Yourselves with the blog hop? What can you quote from your favourite books?


  1. I hope you're enjoying the book. I love that series! Have a great week. :)

  2. Ahhhh Jon . . . on page 89 . . . sigh. Happy reading! :D

  3. I can't think of any at the top of my head, but one of my favorite books is "And Then We Came to the End" (I've read it twice!) as well as Player One by Douglas Coupland. So many quotable things. :)
