I saw this over on Dorie’s Reading Corner this morning and thought it was a really fun idea, so I thought that I would join in on the fun. I may be a bit late today, but better late than never.
- Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current book, as well as any first impressions or initial thoughts they might have.
- The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences, and post them.
This week’s excerpts are brought to you by How To Stop Time by Matt Haig. I received an E-Arc of this book from NetGalley of this book, which will be released February 6. Goodreads

So far I am really enjoying this read and can’t wait to finish it!
