Friday Reads 20th January 2017

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading! 

The House on Sunset Lake
Book Beginning:
"No one forgets a summer spent at Casa D'Or. You remember them so clearly you don't even need to close your eyes to recall the heavy warm breeze, the smell of azaleas, and the air that sticks to your sun-kissed skin."
Friday 56:
"Recovered, he wanted to tell her, searching around for the lines he'd rehearsed all those years ago, the words he would say to her if they ever met again, the things he'd written in the letters that never got sent." 
I am actually only 16 pages in to this so far so haven't reached the 56 yet. I am enjoying the writing style. The opening is really descriptive and emotive and I am sure this will be a book where the setting is very important! This is my first Tasmina Perry book and I am excited to continue it today! 

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading
