Books by Hazel Gaynor


I have read,  reviewed, and loved A MEMORY OF VIOLETS and THE COTTINGLEY SECRET. 

Which books by Hazel Gaynor have you read?

Book Beginnings - 5/24/2019


*Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.  *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page. 
 *************** 
My Book Beginnings is taken from THE FIRST MISTAKE by Sandie Jones:
 
"She looked at me with real warmth in her eyes, as if she trusted me with her life, and for a moment I thought I couldn't go through with it.

But then I remembered what she'd done and I suddenly felt calm again."

Book Blogger Hop - 5/24 - 5/30



Question of the Week:

Do you continue with a book even though you aren't liking it? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

My Answer:

I used to continue, but I realized there are too many good books out there to enjoy.

No sense struggling to read a book to see if you might like it better if you keep on going.  :)

Have You Heard of This Book?

Today's featured book is:

NEWS OF THE WORLD by Paulette Jiles


Feel free to post this feature on your page or blog with a book you have read and want others to know about.
************
NEWS OF THE WORLD is filled with beautiful, descriptive writing that pulls you in.   

I truly enjoyed NEWS OF THE WORLD mainly because of the characters and definitely the warmth and kindness of Captain Kidd.

If you need a quick, enjoyable, heartwarming read, NEWS OF THE WORLD fits the bill along with a history lesson. 4/5
