Friday Book Beginnings is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week.
This week I’m reading We Could Be Heroes by Mike Chen. It will be released on January 26, 2021.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
The way the bank teller shrunk back in fear captured everything. After all, Jamie Sorenson was a villain.
Not just a villain. He was the Mind Robber. And he terrified the people of San Delgado.
What say you? Are you intrigued? I’m on the blog tour for this one, so check back later this month to see my full review.
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. It starts each Friday and runs through the following Thursday. Each week, there’s a new prompt featuring a book-related question. It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers.
This week’s prompt: What upcoming books are you intrigued to read in 2021?
There are so many good books coming out in 2021! Some I’m eagerly anticipating:
Ellery Adams’ Secret, Book and Scone Society series is one of my absolute favorite mystery series, and I’m really looking forward to the next installment! Release date January 26.
Everything I’ve ever read by Charlie N. Holmberg has been a delight. I anticipate that Spellmaker will continue in that same vein. Release date March 9.
A dual-timeline story about a secret apothecary who provides poisons to help desperate women get rid of troublesome men, in a time when women were considered little more than property? Intriguing! Release date March 2.
Are any of these on your TBR list?
This beginning grabbed my attention right away! I’m so glad you chose to share this one. I’ve got it on my TBR to read soon, and now I want to pick it up all the sooner thanks to that opening. To be fair, I’m a sucker for superhero books in general! I’m looking forward to reading Spellmaker, too, especially after reading the first book.
Here’s my Friday post.
I’d love to know what you think of We Could Be Heroes! So far, I’m finding it to be a good read.
Oh wow – I like the books you chose that are being released in 2021! I’ll have to add them to my list, aside from The Last Apothecary I hadn’t heard about the other two!
I hope you enjoy them, Penelope!
Great excerpt! Enjoy your reading, and thanks for sharing. Here’s mine: “THE WIFE UPSTAIRS”
That sounds like a creepy good read!
This is my first time hearing about We Could Be Heroes. The excerpt won me over right away so I ran over to Goodreads to read the synopsis. It sounds so good! I hope you are enjoying it.
There are so many great books coming out this year! I am really looking forward to The Lost Apothecary too. Such a great premise. I have been wanting to read Ellery Adams’ series for quite some time now. And Holmberg’s book sounds good too. I think I have another that author’s books on my TBR shelf to read.
I hope you have a great weekend, Lisa. Happy Reading!
Everything I’ve read by Holmberg has been amazing. I need more time to read, but my day job expects me to work! LOL
Happy weekend to you, too!
All three sound like great reads, I hope you really enjoy them. Happy reading.
The same to you, Louise!
The Lost Apothecary looks good, such a beautiful cover!
That’s what caught my eye, the cover. Then I read the description, and I was all, oh, YES!!!
That opening is sure unexpected. I’s read on. My Friday post
We Could Be Heroes is turning out to be pretty interesting! Off to see what you’re reading!
I’ve heard a lot of great things about Ellery Adams – I’m going to have to start that series!
