Book Beginnings on Friday and Book Blogger Hop – June 24, 2022

Book Beginnings on Fridays 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. You can check out others’ book beginnings here.

My book beginning:

In the middle of Hickory Lane grew a neighborhood garden, a circular patch of vibrant land that fit snugly into the footprint of the wide dead-end street, a cul-de-sac.

Did that grab your attention? And if the first line didn’t, what about that stunning cover?! This is one of my most anticipated books of the year, and so far, I am loving it! Keep an eye out for a review in the not-too-distant future!

Book Blogger Hop

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. See what others have to say on this topic and link up your own post here.

My reading preference is overwhelmingly fiction. I read a lot of serious stuff in law school, and now I proofread and edit a lot of nonfiction. So when I’m reading purely for fun, I gravitate toward fiction. Cozy mystery, fantasy, thriller, romance, whatever grabs my attention. I will pick up the occasional nonfiction book if the subject catches my eye or there’s something I want to learn about, but nonfiction is much more my husband’s jam than mine!

What’s your reading preference?

Happy Friday, y’all!

  1. I can see why you would want to read fiction. I struggle with non fiction. I just need to make better choices I think!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I really only enjoy reading fiction. Have a great week!

    I guess if one reads a lot of nonfiction in their daily life, it’s more appealing to read fiction, right? It gives your reading a balance, I think.

    Have a lovely day.
