Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - January 18th

This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join on the fun go to The Friday 56.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

This week I'm reading...


The emptiness rolled in quietly, like a thick, cold fog. A hollow ache of longing so insidious that I didn't notice its arrival until I'd been consumed by it. The yoga teachings give it a name: dukha. An empty cavity. A hole in the heart.

In my case, dukha was a black hole I never knew existed. It hadn't existed, in fact, until the day I witnessed the birth of Rene's twins, Alice and Amelia. Since then, dukha had grown into a yawning cavern that devoured all of my enthusiasm - all of my passion. A cavern I desperately hoped to fill.

Friday 56...

From page 56 on my Kindle...

"Take a look at this place. Do I look like I can afford some fancy attorney?"


  1. Fun cover. Have a great weekend.

  2. The opening lines make me curious about what is happening with her. Is she sad because she now wants something she never had?

    Enjoy, and here's mine: “THE LIAR’S ROOM”

  3. A yoga mystery? That's interesting -- I'll have to check this one out. Thanks for sharing!

    My Book Beginning this week is from the new suspense novel The Water Tower Club

  4. Sounds interesting. This week I am spotlighting a middle grade fantasy - The Storm Keeper's Island by Catherine Doyle - from my review stack. Happy reading!

  5. I love the beginning, it pulled me right in!! Happy weekend!

  6. I like the cover and the writing of the first sentence. This seems like an interesting story. Enjoy your current read!

  7. I really like the sound of these snippets. Thanks for sharing! :)
