Friday Reads 10th February 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!

Sweet Lake: A Novel (Sweet Lake, #1)
Book Beginning:
"Coconuts bouncing down a bowling lane."

Friday 56: 
"Finishing her morning coffee, Linnie walked to the veranda's railing and breathed in the fragrance of honeysuckle."

I haven't actually started this yet (I still have a couple of pages of Wires and Nerve left) but I am very intrigued by that opening sentence! I have no idea what's going on but it's an interesting image! The second quote in contrast is pretty idyllic and lovely, so I think this will be a really nice and possibly funny read! I am really looking forward to it! I was sent this for review!

If anyone's interested my review of last week's Friday Reads - Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones - went up yesterday and you can check it out here.

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

  2. When I read the opening, I thought of thunderstorms in South Florida! I'd keep reading to find out what the author is describing. I like the description in your 56 too.
    My Friday post features An Innocent Client.

    1. It rains pretty much constantly in England but we rarely get storms like that! So I couldn't think of anything to compare it too!

  4. I loved this book! Especially because, from the first page, I felt as though I was right there with them in the gorgeous setting, and feeling what they were feeling. Enjoy!

    Here's mine: “BEHIND HER EYES”
