August 13: Book Characters I’d Love to Be Besties With (submitted by Michelle @ Pink Polka Dot Blog) I did this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic last week by mistake so I’m swapping topics.
I would love to be part of the friend group in this series.
If I was Rosie’s friend, I would want to tell her that everything will be okay in the end.
Alex Cross is the main character in this series and being friends with him means I’ll get a chance to figure out his way of thinking.
I think, I want to be Aidan best friend just to solve the murder.
Piper Harland seems to be a cool chick to be friends with.
I want to be friends with Max because she’s bad-ass and strong.
Charile and Nick so sweet and be great friends.
Eliza Mirk is so creative I think we would be good friends.
I saw a lot of Josie in me when I read this book this month so of course I want to be your friend.
I feel like London needs someone to listen to her and I want to be that friend.
Water is a macro nutrient, which means that we need it in large amounts to live. However, water is the only macro nutrient that isn’t an energy food source. We should be drinking about 2 liters a day more than that in warmer climates due to the fact with the heat your body sweats, and you will need to replace it.

Ways To Increase Your Water Intake:
OK, that’s all I have for you today and don’t forget to keep drinking water.
From the first word
I knew I wanted to be a part of your world
Because people like you so kind
Are hard to find
And I hope that time
You will be mine
I thought we had all our lives
Till you started
With the lies
No more light-hearted
Times your eyes
Like cutting knives
Like your smile
Feels like it ran more than a mile
Our love did die
And I think that’s time
To say goodbye
First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?
It was an ugly Monday just after noon. There had been no sign of sun so far, just a thick fog that had put the blocks to traffic around the Golden Gate. I was behind the wheel of the squad car, and Inspector Rich Conklin, my partner of many years, was in the seat beside me when Claire called my cell phone.
Claire Washburn is my closest friend, and also San Francisco’s Chief Medical Examiner. This call was strictly business.
“Lindsay,” Claire shouted over the braying of car horns. “I’ve got two DBs in a single-car smash-up and I don’t know what the hell I’m looking at. If you and Richie are in the neighborhood, I could use another opinion.”
She gave me her location, and I told her we’d be there as soon as weather and traffic permitted. I repeated to Rich what Claire had said and turned the car around.
My partner is smart, steady, a glass-full type of guy, and on this particular day, he was pretty happy with himself.
He said, “Claire wants us to look at a traffic fatality?”
I don’t know who created this tag, but I use Goodreads a lot, so I thought it would fun to do.
