Four Fun Friday memes to join

Fridays are about sharing the first sentence(s) of a current book I'm reading and a snippet from page 56 or 56% on e-reader from the same book. Fun, right? And I'm joining the BBH (Blogger Hop) to answer this week's prompt. As always, everyone is welcome - hope to see you there and sharing first sentences.......

Today's Book is:

Currently Reading:

Murder at Haven's Rock #1 by Kelley Armstrong

Genre: Mystery

Published Feb 21, 2023; 352 pages

First Sentence(s): "PROLOGUE: The longer Penny works on building this strange little town, the more obvious it becomes that the company is lying. Lying about everything."

Page 56: "Sometimes I think that the surest way to know whether I'll get along with a woman is to see how fast she skims through the pleasantries and gets to business. I seem to surround myself with women who have spent their careers being told to be nicer, be less direct ... and stuffed that advice in the bin where it belongs."

Today's Question: Do you use social media to keep up with your favorite authors?

Not really. If I come across an article about an author I enjoy on BookBub or on a blog or podcast, I'll read or listen but I don't follow any particular authors.

Book Beginnings (share the first sentence(s) hosted by Rose City Reader

First Sentence Friday (share the first sentence(s) hosted by Reading Is My Superpower

Friday 56 (share a blurb from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted by Freda's Voice

Book Blogger Hop (BBH) asks a question of general interest or discussion hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer

Hope you'll join in one or all of these fun memes and take a minute to visit the other participants. I'm surprised how many times a first sentence can send me looking for a book.

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.


For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with me, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
