Greetings Humans! It’s Friday afternoon and time to grab the books. My Mommy hardly read anything over the past two weeks, so I am so glad to have her home this afternoon and just do a bit of reading.
My Mommy had Book Club two weeks ago and normally by now, she would have been finished with at least 3 of her picks. But alas, life has not been kind to our reading life and we are now only on our second book for the month. Dreadful, I know. Luckily it’s a fun one and really good. Best part of all, it’s the first in a series. Yea!
Four septuagenarians with a few tricks up their sleeves
A female cop with her first big case
A brutal murder
The Thursday Murder Club
In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves The Thursday Murder Club. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.
When a local developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case. As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it’s too late?
For our first stop today, we will pay a visit to Gilion over at Rose City Reader to share our Book Beginnings. Every Friday you can link up and share the first sentence of your current read (or the one you plan to devour over the weekend), as well as your initial thoughts and impressions. Hashtags are the one thing I do know on social media, so simply #bookbeginnings so we can find each other.
The Friday 56
Next we will pay a visit to Freda over at Freda’s voice who hosts the Friday 56. Don’t show up empty handed though!
- Grab a book (Yes, any book. But it might get you to your other Friday activities a bit quicker if you just grab the book you are currently reading)
- Turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader
- Find a sentence or two (your other Friday activities might determine this)
- Post it!
- Remember to post your link on Freda’s Voice and to visit the other guys in the linky.
- And last but not least, don’t forget to list the title of the book and the author as well.
I do hope that my Mommy is also going to be such a fun old lady one day.
We love Friday Face Off and my Mommy so enjoys searching for lovely covers. The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme choose a book (this doesn’t have to be a book that you’ve read), compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.
Have you read Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo? My Mommy loved it. I was a bit scared of some of the ghosts, but the story was brilliant. Can’t wait for the rest of the series. Not that much of a variety in covers though. Our favorite one is the Polish Edition:
It almost gives the vibe of an emblem and that works very well with the Yale background. But that’s just our opinion. Which one do you like the most?
