Bookish Musings: Mating Bonds Requiring Sex & Other Exclusionary Nonsense

Bookish Musings: Mating Bonds Requiring Sex & Other Exclusionary Nonsense

Look at me, doing a real discussion post! But this is one of those things I was just driven to talk about.

Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (5)

I like doing these opening lines posts. I never remember what the opening lines of books are, so it's always interesting to go back and see them. Also interesting to see the variety they have.
