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 sun had barely come up and Willa Davis was already elbow deep in puppies and poo - a typical day for her."
"She kissed the dog right between the huge, pointy ears."
So dogs are obviously a general theme in this book! I am not yet up to the 56. But I love Jill Shalvis's writing and I already like Willa. Although we don't seem to have a lot in common when it comes to that opening sentence. Firstly, if I am up before the sun it's because I didn't go to sleep and secondly - much as I love puppies being elbow deep in them and poo would not be my idea of fun! This is the official start of my Christmas reading and I think it will be a great one to start with!
I like the beginning and 56. I haven't heard of this one before, but it sounds pretty interesting.ReplyDelete

My Friday 56 from Grudging
It was! A really fun read! :)Delete
That cover is super colorful and adorable! And those excerpts made me giggle just a little bit--I can imagine being up to my elbows in puppies, but POO?! No, thank you. Just the puppies, please!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for sharing! Here's my Friday 56, if you're interested in checking it out--no worries or pressure if you're not, though! Either way, happy book-ing to you in the near future...and happy Friday! <3
Yes - I want all the puppies, none of the poo!!Delete

I can't resist stories that feature puppies! Sounds like a book I'd enjoy.ReplyDelete
My Friday post features BEYOND THE ASHES.
Puppies are pretty irresistible - turned out cats played a bigger part overall! But I love both so its a win-win!Delete
Dogs are the general theme? I love it already. Sounds perfect for December. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
I know right? Who could turn down dogs!! Have a great week!Delete
LOL sounds fun! Happy weekend!ReplyDelete

It definitely was - if you ever want to give the genre a try Jill Shalvis would be a great place to start! :)Delete
