Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - May 8th

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.

  5. That looks perfect for this time of year.

  6. This sounds really good and from the cover looks like a nice way to vicariously visit the beach!

  7. When I leave my job, I want to go quietly without any big fanfare. I really like both teasers you shared, Yvonne. I haven't tried any of Andrews' books, but I've been wanting to. I hope you enjoy it! Have a great week.
