Book Beginnings #48

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

For Friday 56, Freda's Voice asks you to turn to Page 56 in your book or 56% on your e-reader and pick a sentence.

I am currently reading Girlhood by Cat Clarke.
We always have a midnight feast on the first night back. Because that’s what you do at boarding school, right?
Boarding school books are my catnip, and this one is off to a cracking start. I feel it really sets the scene and the tone of the story.

I go this book from the lovely Rachel for my birthday. It is another YALC read (although the author is no longer appearing) and my third Zoella Book Club read. And I can't wait to get stuck in.
A spider has woven its web across the porch and sits in the middle, at head height. A face full of spider is never a good start t the day.
Urgh, I know this feeling! It's the worst.

I can't wait to find out more and get properly started on this, as I have high expectations. So many people have loved it.


  1. This book sounds like a more interesting version of the boarding school book. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “MRS. SAINT & THE DEFECTIVES”

  2. I had a face full of spider this morning! It did not end well. (For either of us!) LOL

    Here's mine ;

    Happy weekend!



  3. Ick! Not much is worse than walking into a spider web. I'm reading The Danger Gang and the Pirates of Borneo! by Stephen Bramucci - a fun middle grade adventure. Happy reading!

  4. You've left me wanting more. :-) Happy weekend!

  5. Gross, I can't imagine waking up only to find a spider that close to me. Anyway, the quotes from this book sound interesting.
