My Book Beginnings is taken from TIFFANY BLUES by M. J. Rose:
"I hadn't expected to find a waterfall in the middle of Central Park.  Even there, so far away from home and the scene of the tragedy, the rushing water that pounded on the rocks made me shudder."

  1. Happy Friday!!

    ENJOY your reading day and weekend.

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. Enjoy the read and have a good weekend.

    1. Thanks, Mystica, and thanks for commenting.

  3. I've never read M. J. Rose, and I think I need to change that.

    I have put a library hold on A Noise Downstairs. It looks so appealing.

    1. M. J. Rose usually writes paranormal. She is a fantastic writer, though. When I heard she went the historical fiction route, I decided to read it.

      I finished it last night, and really enjoyed it.

      A Noise Downstairs is really good. I LOVED it. I have never read him before.

      Thanks for commenting.

  4. These all look like great books, suspenseful too!

    1. LOL...most of them are suspenseful!!

      A few are not.

      Thanks for commenting, Harvee.

  5. Is there really a waterfall in the middle of Central Park? Tiffany Blues sounds like a captivating book. Have a good weekend, Elizabeth.

    1. I really don’t know if Central Park has a waterfall, but the art school pictured on the cover had water fountains.

      It was was about the founder of Tiffany jewelry.

      Thanks for commenting, Suko.
