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.
My Book Beginning:
I’m currently reading Sunrise by Susan May Warren, another Revell Read that I’ll be reviewing in the not-too-distant future. It’s set in Alaska, and reading it makes me want to visit there more than ever. Maybe someday….
By the time Dodge got to the hospital, he’d already broken his first promise.
Would that one line be enough to keep you reading? Would you be more intrigued or less if I told you it was Christian fiction, romantic suspense/adventure? Go see what other people’s first lines are here.
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.
I really haven’t been listening to virtual author events. I have a hard time listening to things like events or audiobooks while I’m doing things around the house. If I can’t devote my whole attention to an event, I’m not going to do it, and it’s seldom that I feel like I can sit down and devote that kind of time to an online event. And I definitely can’t listen to virtual events at my day job (not unless they’re work-related). Alas.
If you’ve taken part in virtual author events, which ones have you participated in? What did you like about them? Hop over here to see what other bloggers have to say.
What a scenic cover. Thanks for sharing!
I love that cover. Wouldn’t you love to be in that plane to see that scenery in person?
I definitely want to know more about this broken promise.
Alaska is beautiful. And cold. Then again, I’m a Southern CA wimp when it comes to cold weather.
Whenever I read a book set in a beautiful landscape I’m also desperate to visit it! I’m the same that I either need to fully focus on an event, or I won’t take anything in. But I usually find myself in the wrong timezone for many events anyway xD
Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

I like that first line! I’d keep reading. Thanks for sharing BBOF on Instagram!
My pleasure! Hopefully more people will join in the fun!
I love an Alaskan setting in books. Someday I would like to visit there. I don’t think I could live there though. I don’t like the cold.
I think the only virtual author events I attended were in online book groups and involved authors visiting and posting questions, information and giveaways for group members that I could pop in and out of at my leisure. I haven’t watched/listened to a live event though. It can be hard to fit those into my schedule.
I hope you have a great weekend!
I couldn’t live there, either. I am a Southern girl through and through! But it would be lovely to visit.
I enjoyed this book. My husband’s uncle lived in Alaska for years and loved it. They have a cabin in TN and a house in FL and they spend the winter’s in Florida, which I think is funny. I have not watched/listened to author virtual events. https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/02/first-line-friday-37-dreams-of-gold.html
I think my heart wants to be in Alaska but my body says no way too cold! Thanks for sharing! hop on over to my blog, I have a book by an Alaskan posting on 2/7/22 http://www.readinggrrl.com
