Book Beginnings on Fridays/The Friday 56 - April 30th

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...

First Chapter

The first thing you should know about me is that I hate lawyers.  The second is that I work for them.

From 56% on my Kindle...

"What do you want?"  I growled, not even bothering to disguise my disgust now.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

I was just your normal twenty-something with seven associate degrees and no idea what I wanted to do with my life. That is, until I died… Well, almost.

As if a near-death experience at the hands of an old coffeemaker wasn’t embarrassing enough, I woke up to find I could talk to animals. Or rather one animal in particular.

His full name is Octavius Maxwell Ricardo Edmund Frederick Fulton, but since that’s way too long for anyone to remember, I’ve taken to calling him Octo-Cat. He talks so fast he can be difficult to understand, but seems to be telling me that his late owner didn’t die of natural causes like everyone believes.

Well, now it looks like I no longer have a choice, apparently my life calling is to serve as Blueberry Bay’s first ever pet whisperer P.I while maintaining my fa├žade as a paralegal at the offices of Fulton, Thompson & Associates.

I just have one question: How did Dr. Doolittle make this gig look so easy?

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. I know how it feels to want to growl. I hope I don't do it often, though. My Friday quotes come from the book SAVING MY ENEMY

  2. Ha! What a delightful sounding read. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “FALLOUT”

  3. I love that first line! What a nice juxtaposition! It sounds like a great read! Hope you enjoy it.

    Here's my Friday post.

  4. Looks like a lot of fun! Happy weekend!

  5. That cover is so cute! This sounds like a fun mystery. I hope you are enjoying it. Have a great weekend, Yvonne!

  6. Oh this looks fun! I'd definitely keep reading.
