Happy Friday! Who’s ready for the weekend?
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:
I’ve just started Peril at Pennington Manor, the second in Tracy Gardner’s Avery Ayers Antique Mysteries.
Here’s how it opens:
“Race you home.”
Avery Ayers raised one eyebrow at her dad jogging beside her. She brushed the strands of long brown hair off her face toward her high ponytail. “You’ll lose.”

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.
Hmm. One obvious bookish pet peeve is not enough hours in the day to read! Another is when I get sucked into a series and the next book takes an unreasonable amount of time to come out, or just never gets released (looking at you, George R.R. Martin and Melanie Rawn). I know, authors have lives, things happen, and sometimes a series just can’t get wrapped up like we readers wish it could. But man, I hate being left hanging!
What about you? Any bookish things that damage your calm? Share in a comment, and hop on over to Coffee Addicted Writer’s blog to see what others have to say!
