Back again after taking a break last week. Time has gone by so fast, yesterday was the longest day, or Summer Solstice, so from today the days get shorter.
I personally love the long days of sunshine in summer, when the sun beats me to rise at 5am, and is up until well after 9 in the evening.
Hayfever though, is the downside of summer. Even as a write my eyes are watering (well the right one is anyway).
Today, I'm not going to be complicated, and just share one of two books I am currently reading. Or at least, I started reading the Netgalley version of this one, before getting the audiobook. I will try reading more, before going back to the audio version.
Gotta sat that whilst the story is good so far, I'm not sure I've entirely warmed to the hero, Nolan. I think I actually prefer Lord Stainsby. That's me: non-conformist all the way.
Derbyshire, EnglandMay 1884.
Nolan Price scanned the fields of newly budding greenery and stretched as far as he could see and slowly inhaled the scent of grass, soil and freshly spread manure.
I love the smell of freshly mown grass myself. Though I don't think grass loves me, what with the hay-fever n'all.
That's all from me this week. Don't forget to click the meme and see what all the other members of the group are reading.
Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from As The Tide Comes In by Cindy and Erin Woodsmall. Here I will share the first line from a short story I'm currently reading. It's called "A Lady of Scandal" by Heather B. Moore. It's very good.
"Hugh couldn't help but think of his biggest question about Anthony and Lady Bridget. Why had Anthony offered to marry her?"
Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with good reading time!
Oh that sounds good. Might have to come by and look at that. Happy Weekend.Delete
This one sitting on my nightstand waiting for me!ReplyDelete

My FLF comes from Claiming Her Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe
If Lucy Maxwell had learned one thing, it was that when life appeared to be going smoothly, it was time to listen closely for the other boot to drop!
Have a great weekend and happy reading!📚😎
I'm afraid I don't read Westerns, although I am not averse to watching them sometimes. Good first line.Delete

Great book! I just finished reading The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck today...ReplyDelete
You see, love stories never worked for her. She never got the guy.
