Friday Books - The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

It's usually great fun on a Friday to check out other book bloggers' shares and enjoy quotes from the books they are reading. 


At Book Beginningshosted by Rose City Reader, you share the first line, and  a few thoughts about the book.





Today I'm featuring The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. Here's the beginning.






This doesn't get you into the book, but the start is basically a family - Mom, Dad and Leni, relocating to Alaska. It's Leni's countless school change, and she's done done done. That's relevant for the Friday56...





(At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.)


Here's page 56.



I'm only this far into the book, and enjoying it so far. What do you think? Would you keep reading?


What are you reading this weekend?  Leave me a comment with what you're featuring and I'll check it out.

The excerpt has me curious and I can relate to the opening. We get some wild storms here. I like the cover too:)

I have to say, just from the snippets, I probably wouldn't keep reading. But with it being a Kristin Hannah book, I would keep reading; because I love all of her books and most of them get really great in the middle and the ending is always fantastic!

I LOVED this book, and I've heard it will soon be a movie. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “MY EX-LIFE”

Sounds like an epic read! I can relate to the beginning, that was Spring here. Happy Canada day weekend, and happy early Independence day!

This one is on my TBR and I'm excited to read anything by Kristin Hannah. No idea why I haven't yet.
