Book Beginnings #61

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 A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard.
A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
Millie Gerdavey cheated on her boyfriend again.
I'm starting to tackle my YALC TBR and first up is A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard. This has been on my TBR since it was announced because I loved the author's debut Beautiful Broken Things.

I feel like this is a great first line, the confession of a secret, some juicy gossip.
What happened when you got to secondary school? 
Everything went to shit.
I am only just starting now, so I'm quite excited to see where it goes, especially with that accurate account of high school.

What are you reading this week?


  1. Thanks for sharing. This one is not for me. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine!

  2. Sounds interesting. I tend to stay away from YA contemporaries though. This week I have a cozy mystery - Flowers and Foul Play by Amanda Flower. Happy reading!

  3. This book is on my YA TBR too! Really need to get a move on and read it.

    Have a good weekend :)

  7. This book is on my TBR! I also loved Beautiful Broken Things which is why I want to read this one. I really need to get to reading it! :)

  8. I don't read many high-school related books these days, I've just grown out of them I guess. But I hope you'll have fun with this!! Have a wonderful weekend!
