The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56 & Book Beginnings)
A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena
OMG! I just love how this book was sent to me! What an ingenious way to market your books. You guys at Penguin really know your stuff! I absolutely loved how the book came all wrapped in the “local newspaper”, tied up in string. The newspaper relates to the car crash in the book. It’s even got an advert for a lawyer, Jack Calvin, who is actually the lawyer in the book. It’s as if the whole story is shockingly real. Brilliant!
Well, apart from being over excited about the way a book was delivered to me…
I discovered my old laptop does not cope well in the heat, and it could hardly stay on during this heatwave we’ve been having in England. Yes, you heard that right, heatwave. England. June!
Thankfully, it’s much cooler today and he has (my laptop) allowed me on today. Meanwhile, I’ve ordered an electric fan to cool down the both of us as soon as it heats up again.
But it’s not all doom and gloom lol I’ve actually thoroughly enjoyed extra reading time and written about thirty non-book reviews (via my Kindle, Evernote, and a cordless wifi keyboard Ack! Don’t ask!), plus I read several fantastic books, so I’ve plenty of news to share.
The first review I’ve posted earlier today is Blood Sisters by Jane Corry, you can find that review here. Please see below for the link to my chosen Friday56 and bookbeginnings memes, directly below.
Here is the review for this book A Stranger in the House. I simply couldn’t read it fast enough!
Okay, onto the memes…
Here are a couple of sentences from page 56:
Which book are you reading? Don’t be shy, do say hi!
