Happy Reading


  1. "The distant figure was little more than a dark smudge on the steppe. The land was flat and white and cold; a vast sea of nothing with just that single blemish on the landscape, drawing the eye."

    The Child Thief by Dan Smith

  2. My first line is from Within These Walls of Sorrow by Amanda Barratt
    Prelude. Zosia Krakow, Poland
    The sun shone the day I married Ryszard Lewandowski.

    1. This whole series is fun. It's middle grade but you might like them - strong, badass, clever girl and her brilliant BFF. Same with the Myrtle Hardcastle series.

  4. That's a cute cover! I hope you enjoy this one. Have a great weekend!!

  5. Happy Friday!
    I'm currently reading What Happens Next by Christina Suzann Nelson. It's a great story!
    "Dora placed the flyer in a box and covered it with the lid. She looked around the house, so empty now that Paul had moved from their spare bedroom to an apartment downtown."
    I hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤️📚

  6. That looks like a fun read! I'm currently reading Alaskan Mountain Search by Sarah Varland. The first line is: "It was never truly dark at this time of year--mid June--in the land of the midnight sun." Have a great week!

    1. It is, my daughter and I love the Aggie Morton books. Such a fun way to introduce kids to Agatha Christie. She found a copy of And Then There Were None on my shelves and wanted to read it, so we started with these before I let her dive into that one.


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
