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!
"Carrie Slayton's feet were killing her."
"This was an unwelcome predicament, and Finn wasn't the least bit happy."
Short but sweet quotes this week! That opening makes me instantly relate to Carrie - my shoes aren't always the most practical! I am curious about the second quote - would love to know what made Finn not the least bit happy. This is the eighth of my Christmas reads (thirteen more to go) and I am really enjoying my festive reading so far!
I apologise in advance if I don't stop by your blog today or reply to any comments - I am heading up to Wales to stay with a friend for a few days and I am not likely to have access to the blog whilst I am there! I am sure Ann will take great care of it whilst I am gone and when I get back I will have everyone's posts to look forward to!!
Wow, you are on a roll with your Christmas reads. Starry Night sounds like a cute holiday read.ReplyDelete
So many Christmas reads! There's no way I'll get to them all but it's fun to try!Delete
Beautiful cover. Can't go wrong with Macomber for Xmas.ReplyDelete

I've never tried her before but it was very Christmassy!Delete
Enjoy your visit with your friend! I love Debbie Macomber's Christmas books and this one looks like a fun read though I wonder about what's up with Finn as well.ReplyDelete
Finn was basically just super anti-social at that time in the book! I had a good time with my friend thank you!Delete
I really must read one of Macomber's holiday books! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “WHITE TRASH”ReplyDelete
I've heard such great things about her books so I thought now would be a great time to try one!Delete
Such a lovely and inviting cover and title. I can relate to the sore feet!ReplyDelete
My Friday 56 from In The Blue Hour
It looks so cosy doesn't it?Delete
This sounds good. I can identify with the beginning too. I have a mystery this week - Ill Met by Murder by Elizabeth J. Duncan. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
It's a very relatable beginning I think!!Delete
This book sounds good! Here is my 56: http://shoshireads.weebly.com/home/friday-56-and-book-beginningsReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting!Delete
Those snippets were not what I was expecting at all. :-) Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
I like when books surprise me - generally! Hope you had a great weekend too!Delete
I don't think Macomber has ever gone wrong with Christmas. I'll definitely be picking this one up!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy it! :)Delete
Somehow I've never ever read Macomber, but I have been told she's very good. :)ReplyDelete
Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings) + 50/50 Friday and my current giveaway.
Same! I read a lot of romance so it's weird I've never read one of her books before!Delete
