Book Beginnings and The Friday 56

Friday, 11 August 2017
On Fridays I will share excerpts from whatever I am reading that day. First, Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Reader  then The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.

First share the opening lines of your novel, then turn to page 56 (or 56%) and share a few lines!


This week's novel is The Readymade Thief by Augustus Rose.

Beginning: "To make your way to the DePaul Aquarium and Museum of Natural History, on Petty Island in the middle of the Delaware River, you can drive through New Jersey and over the only bridge."

56%: "Lee spent her time upstairs poking through the Caldwells' bedroom, rifling through drawers and closets, opening boxes and searching for secret hideaways, but the Caldwells were dull folk whose bookshelves were full of Christian cowboy romance novels and a series of Left Behind books as long as her arm."

Thoughts: I'm not sure how I feel about this novel yet, I'm not that far through it, and I'm not really sure what the plot is yet!!

Happy reading and have a great weekend!!


  1. That cover alone is enough to capture my interest but the snippets helped! Happy weekend!

  2. I hope you end up liking it. :)
