Book Beginnings #70

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 Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie.

Tabitha Brown's heart thudded in her chest as she read the Instagram caption on her phone. Best night with my favourite girls!
This is a book that I am rereading already, despite having just read it in April and it not even being released for another week. I just can't help myself.

The Paper & Hearts Society is full of friendship and self-discovery and books. It makes me so happy to read it, and get lost in a book club I wish I were a part of.
"That's the second time you've mentioned bringing Jane Austen back from the dead now, Livs," Henry replied. "I think you might have a problem."

One of my favourite things about The Paper & Hearts Society is the sheer adoration of books within the story. Even if Cassie plays it cool and pretends she's not a reader, once she's started on graphic novels there's no stopping her. I love the UKYA books and authors name dropped in the pages. I also love the friendship dynamics, the way they gently tease each other, but always in good fun.

What are you reading this week?

  3. Definitely interested in this one!

  4. sometimes the best time to reread a book is right after you read it the first time. To catch all the little details you missed the first time around. My Friday quotes and a short review of WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE
