Friday Book Shop


BookBeginnings is a weekly meme, hosted by Rose City Reader. To participate, share the opening lines and your thoughts about a book you're reading, or about to.

The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez 

Beginning:
It was a vibrant blue-skied Afhgan morning, the kind that made Yazmina stop to loosen her scarf and tilt her face to the sun.
My thoughts: I also live in a warm climate, and I love those kind of days, when you would consider abandoning yourself to the golden sunshine (preferably with a book in one hand) and lie on your back with the blue sky the only backdrop to the peace.

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s VoiceGrab a book, any book. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.) Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)

Here's my P56


"Forget fun, I'm just hoping people show up," Sunny replied. Maybe she would be lucky and Jack would stop by, as he often did late in the day.


Here's the cover, isn't it pretty?




Tell me what you're reading, and I'll pay you a friendly visit. Happy reading everyone.

Is the gal wearing a scarf because she is Muslim so it would be unusual that she tipped it back? Sounds like a good book. My Friday Quotes

I've never heard of this one, but I love the cover. The color used is great! :)


Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

I never thought of that. I think Yazmina is Muslim. Maybe no one was around, so she just did it? It is unusual.

Visited this morning. And yes I love that color too.

This isn't the sort of thing I usually read. I hope you are enjoying it. This week I'm spotlighting The Obsession by Nora Roberts. Happy reading!

Whitney Behr said...

Oh my goodness, I love the cover and the quotes you shared made me very curious about the book.

Sounds intriguing...thanks for sharing, as I probably wouldn't have picked up this one. Enjoy! And thanks for visiting my blog.

I like to read books set in foreign places, and this sounds like a good one. The cover reminds me of the mandalas in my adult coloring book.
My Friday post features LONGSHOT.

I can definitely relate to that kind of sun! That first hit of heat feels so amazing. I like the sound of this teasers you've shared. I'll have to look for this book.

Kim Griffin said...

This is new to me, but it sounds like a nice story. I love to sit and read in the sun too. Just as long as it's not too hot! Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great weekend!

Laura Thomas said...

This sounds delightful and I love that feeling of the sun on my face. Checking this one out:)
