Friday Reads 19th May 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 Lost Girl of Astor Street
Book Beginning:
"If he doesn't know it already, Jeremiah Crane is about to learn that I'm not the type of girl to be pushed around."
Friday 56:
"Why's he razzing me so hard? It's not like I went out of my way to talk to him. He called out to me." 
I'm actually heading straight into a reading slump at the moment and I'm hoping this book will pull me out (no pressure)! I love a good mystery and I love books set in the 1920s so this should be a definite win? I'm only one chapter in but I like what I've read so far!  


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

I love the "Razzing" me line. Fits so well.

Hope you enjoy this and it pulls yourself out of your reading slump. Don't beat yourself up about it, honestly, take a couple of days off and you'll probably feel better. Hugs x
