Book Beginnings - 7/8/16

*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.

My book beginnings is taken from THE LOST GIRLS by Heather Young:

"I found this notebook in the desk yesterday.  I didn't know I had any of them left, those books I bought at Framer's with their black-and-white marbled covers and their empty, lined pages waiting to be filled." 

I am enjoying the book.
Book finished last week:

ALL IS NOT FORGOTTEN by Wendy Walker - Review is on Tuesday, July 12.

This book is a tense, stay-with-you psychological thriller.



  1. The book is very good. Love family sagas.

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. I love that beginning! There's something so intriguing about that blank notebook - especially when paired with that cover and the title. Adding to my list!
