Book Beginnings #56

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 The Land Girls At Christmas by Jenny Holmes.

"Can you believe it? You need eighteen coupons for a decent winter coat." 
"And seven for a pair of shoes." 
Starting this I have Expectations, because this is a Certain Kind of Book. I expect to be full caught up in a not-too-heavy story, something with substance which still has a bit of fluff. And I want to be filled with Christmas cheer, thanks.
"We're relying on you, Mrs Mostyn. As our rep, it's up to you to take my complaint further if you see fit."
I'm just passing half way now and honestly, this book is everything I was hoping it would be. Gently exciting, comfortable to read, heart warming, that all important Family Love message.

Oh man, it's perfect for my Christmas reading.

What are you reading this week?

  8. This looks so Christmassy, I haven't read anything like that in ages. Lately it doesn't matter what kind of book I read, I just can't get into it. Hopefully that'll change soon.
