Friday Reads 30th June 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!

Summer at Hope Meadows
Book Beginning:
"Home. As the car swooped over the narrow bridge beside the woods, Mandy Hope had the feeling she was back where she belonged."
Friday 56:
"As Mandy flicked through the glossy pictures, she couldn't help feeling a bit overwhelmed." 
Summer at Hope Meadows is the first book in a series that follows on from the Animal Ark series. As a child I loved those books. No, really, I was obsessed. So I'm pretty excited to see where Mandy is now. So far I'm just loving being back with the characters. Even if you never read Animal Ark you'd probably still enjoy this if you like cosy, country reads.

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


  1. I didn't have the pleasure of reading the Animal Ark series as a child, but it does sound delightful. And carrying on the story into adulthood sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is one I want to check out. Never read Animal Ark and now I'm glad to know I can pick up and start here. What a quaint little cover.

  3. You have me interested. :-) Have a great week ahead!
