First Lines Friday | July 17

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

Friday Reads: April 10

I’m about halfway through Lobizona by Romina Garber. I’m just swept away by the reality of the Miami, Florida setting and the Argentinian folklore woven into the story. I’m sure it’s going to be quite a ride once things pick up! I did discover one thing that I’m not too thrilled about…nothing story related, butContinue reading “Friday Reads: April 10”

Friday Reads (and talks with loved ones): April 3

This week I’m reading ‘Get a Life, Chloe Brown’ by Talia Hibbert. So far I’m really liking it. I didn’t expect for the book to be so humorous! The chemistry between Chloe and her family (most especially the handyman) is very vibrant! Throughout all the craziness of working remotely, and establishing a new work/life routineContinue reading “Friday Reads (and talks with loved ones): April 3”

Friday Reads: February 28

I’m reading two books this week. I’m nearly finished with ‘The Other People’ by C.J. Tudor. I’m enjoying the twists and turns this story has taken me on! I’m anticipating the wrap up video Kayla (@booksandlala) will present next month about the book! Today I begun reading ‘We Ride Upon Sticks’ by Quan Barry. IContinue reading “Friday Reads: February 28”

Friday Reads: February 21

I’m currently reading ‘The Other People’ by C.J. Tudor. So far I’m really liking the creepy feels to the story, but I’m sensing that I have a feeling about a certain plot point. It may just be that the author is just tricking me into predicting one thing about the tale, when the truth isContinue reading “Friday Reads: February 21”

Friday Reads: February 14

This week I finished reading two books! I read The Light We Lost on by Jill Santopolo. I purchased this book through Audible. This is a love story set in New York City. I’m always drawn to books set in New York, and it was fun to recall certain landmarks like Columbia University (I usedContinue reading “Friday Reads: February 14”

Friday Reads: February 7

I’m currently reading ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ by Celeste Ng. It’s interesting how the neighborhood of Shaker Heights is set up. It seems like the community reflects some diversity, which I really appreciate. I recall the leader of the book club I attend mention that there are many topics for discussion in this book, and IContinue reading “Friday Reads: February 7”

Friday Reads: January 24

I’m about 40 percent into ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern. I find it very curious that each chapter does a time jump. Considering that the book only focuses on a small cast of characters, the time jump holds some significance in the story. I also love the circus setting, and the thread of CeliaContinue reading “Friday Reads: January 24”

Bookish Thoughts: January 17

Last night I took part in the Book Club run by one of my local libraries. We took time to share our thoughts about Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. There was a small turnout, but an engaging conversation was shared about the predicament of the Osage Indian nation. We all agreed thatContinue reading “Bookish Thoughts: January 17”

Friday Reads: January 10

I’m currently reading Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It’s a non-fiction story about members of the Osage Indian nation being killed through mysterious causes. I’m reading this story as part of a book club selection at my local library. I’m learning about the history of the Osage tribe losing their land forcefullyContinue reading “Friday Reads: January 10”
