First Line Fridays | 21st May

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  If you want to make your own post, follow the rules below:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Here we go…

2021 May Mid-Month Wrap Up

Well I missed last month’s mid-month wrap up (both wrap ups actually). Time to get back on track.

During the mid-month wrap up you’ll see all the books I’ve read before it’s posted (as close to the 15th as I can get it) and a link to the review post or I’ll give a quick (couple sentences) review along with a star rating. During the month wrap up, I’ll give stats and show off what I read after the mid-month wrap up.

So with all that out of the way, let’s take a look at what I read for the first half of May.
