When people ask me what I do–taxi drivers, dental hygienists–I tell them I work in an office.

Montauk

We left the train and were escorted to our awaiting cars, one for Harry and me and one for our trunks–packed to the brim for the summer months ahead.

First Line Fridays: June 7th

As always First Line Friday comes courtesy of Hoarding Books Blog.  I discovered this magic thanks to Crystal at Must Love Reviews.  This week I have been reading an advance reader copy of the new Sandie Jones book, The First Mistake.  I’m pulling this quote from the prologue…

TheFirstMistake

She looked at me with real warmth in her eyes, as if she trusted me with her life, and for a moment I thought I couldn’t go through with it.

Yeah, it has my attention!!  What book are you reading this week?  Drop me a link to your First Reads Friday blog post and I’ll swing by!  Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays: May 24th

I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Slit me at my belly and it might slide out, meaty and dark, drop on the floor so you could stomp on it.

To say this is a dark read would be an understatement…any guesses as to what book I’m reading???  This is a book lent to me by one of my co-workers…and it is quite the gripping read!

This week I am highlighting a book that was given to me by a colleague that I am hoping I will finish before our school year is out!

There was something you wanted to tell me, wasn’t there? What was it you were trying to say? I feel like I drifted out of this conversation a long time ago. I stopped concentrating, I was thinking about something else, getting on with things, I wasn’t listening, and I lost the thread of it.

Guess which one I chose to read first…yes, that line is from Into The Water by Paula Hawkins!  I am excited to delve deeper into this one!  What are you currently reading??

This week I am highlighting a book that is expected to be released on April 2, 2019…

When Claire Rawlings thought of her family, it was more with the mind of a geologist than a physician – the sweeping drumlin of Andrea’s collarbone, the narrow plain of Lily’s sternum, the sculpted features of Glen’s face. Her dreams, too, were crowded with images of rocks and continents gliding, meeting at ragged seams, and then drifting apart.

Interesting…what?  Well now I have to know continue reading to see the correlation between a geologist and a physician.  That’s a bit of a bizarre comparison, no?

OH!  You probably want to know what book this is too…ok, ok, ok, here it is.

LovelyLittleThings

Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly

Look for my review of this book to come soon!  There has been a lot of hype about this book, I hope it lives up to the excitement.  As an added bonus, I’m going to leave you with the Goodreads synopsis today too!

A mother’s chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent’s worst nightmare.

Claire Rawlings, mother of two and medical resident, will not let the troubling signs of an allergic reaction prevent her from making it in for rounds. But when Claire’s symptoms overpower her while she’s driving into work, her two children in tow, she must pull over. Moments later she wakes up on the floor of a gas station bathroom-her car, and her precious girls have vanished.

The police have no leads and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere.

Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by an unthinkable tragedy. Played out in multiple narrative voices, the novel explores how the lives of those affected fatefully intersect, and highlights the potential catastrophe of the small decisions we make every day.

First Line Fridays: February 22nd

This week I am highlighting a book I’m about to start shortly, here we go…

I was born without a voice, one cold, overcast day in Brooklyn, New York. No one ever spoke of my condition. I did not know I was mute until years later, when I’d opened my mouth to ask for what I wanted and realized no one could hear me.

Wow.  Know the book?  I will say, this has my interest and I’m ready to start this bad boy!  Here it is…

I will probably start this today considering I have a snow day, er, ice day.  It’s my kids’ first snow day and my 2nd spanning across my 13 year teaching career (I had one 11 years ago).  Growing up we had them all the time but here in the desert they are RARE!  What better way to enjoy it than by reading?!?  What are you reading on this winter day?
