From page 56:

Walking through the rubber estate, he admires the neat rows of slender trees, imported from South America. Each tree has thin cuttings on its trunk and a small cup into which the milky latex sap drips.

 

 

 

That cover! It’s one of the reason I chose this book for my #BOTM choice in January. As with wine labels, I’m a sucker for a pretty book cover.

Happy Reading.

From page 56:

Darby knew it would hurt; it was gummed up in her hair. Lars had wrapped it lazily around her head, and it was the black electrical kind.

 

 

 

I choose this for my December #BookoftheMonth selection. I want to read this soon. Have any of you read it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below! Happy Reading.

From page 56:

“Blah blah unprecedented, blah blah sympathies to family, blah blah cooperating with the police to the fullest extent, blah blah reassure our customers. There’s a press release.”

 

 

I picked this book because I like the cover. I really don’t know anything about it. Have you read it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below!

For women, the key always symbolizes entrée to a mystery or into knowledge.

 

 

 

This book has teetered on my TBR for years. I’ve dipped in and out of it but I’ve never read it from cover to cover. I hope to do so soon. So many books, so little time.

Have you read It? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below, and be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56.

Happy Reading!

From page 56:

there was a small part of Elodie that looked forward to Alistair’s weeks in New York. She missed him, of course, but it was restful in some way knowing that for six whole nights she could stay at her own place, in her own bed, with her own books and favorite teacup, without having to negotiate and explain herself.

I’ve said it before, but I’m such a sucker for a pretty book cover. And I think this is one of my favorites of the past year. And that excerpt! Who hasn’t felt that way on occasion?

Have any of you read this? If so, what did you you think? Is it as good as the cover promises? Let me know in the comments.

Happy reading and happy New Year.

From page 56:

‘We can save this,’ she continues, and sets about tousling the powder through Angelica’s abused hair with quick deft hands. And she paints her friend’s face, and pins and hooks and stitches her into layers of petticoats and skirts.

 

Historical fiction is my catnip. Add to that a dash of fairy tale and magical realism and you will not see me for as long as it takes for me to read it. And that cover, y’all.  I love it.

Stay tuned for a #QBR in the new year.

Has anyone else read this? What did you think? Let me know in the comments.

But it was his eyes she remembered after that day. A deep compassion shined in the soft brown of his irises.

 

 

 

I don’t know much about this book or the author. this book came to me via Page Habit book subscription box. In fact it’s the last book I received before they went out of business.
