Not only is it Friday, but it’s also holidays! Jippie Yea!!!! Not that I think I’m going to see much of my Mommy today. She is off to school early in the morning and then she’s going for a well-deserved drink with her fellow teachers as soon as the bell chimes for end of day. I’m not complaining at all here. I know when she comes home, she will kick of her shoes and fall on the couch. With a book. And me of course.
What will she be reading? I actually have no idea. But if it’s up to me, I think it’s time for something a bit lighter. And she still needs to finish her Alphabet challenge. I’m just going to go ahead and make the decision for her. She might thrown upon my choice, but a bit of romance never hurt anyone. Okay, I liked the cover.
1954. Zara is fifteen the first time she meets Leon. During a power cut in a small French museum, the two spend one short hour in the dark talking about their love for art, Monet, and Paris. Neither knows what the other looks like. Both know their lives will never be the same.
1963. In Paris, Leon no longer believes he will ever find the girl he lost that night. After dreaming about him for years, Zara thinks she has already found him. When they meet at an exhibition, they don’t recognize each other – yet the way they feel is so familiar…
Over the course of twenty years, Zara and Leon are destined to fall in love again and again. But will they ever find a way to be together?
For our first stop, 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.
Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger’s hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. Every week, there will be a prompt featuring a book related question. It’s hosted by Ramblings of a coffee addicted writer and he guess he hops around like a bunny due to all the caffeine. Hence his name.
This week’s question: What draws you in more? The book’s cover, the title, or the summary? I so put my foot in my mouth with this one, didn’t I? I choose Someday in Paris because I liked the cover and the font…Maybe I should learn to look at all the requirements for Mommy’s Friday Post before I just leap.
