Read my 56:

Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.

Q:  Which time of day do you prefer to read: morning, afternoon, or evening?
A: I prefer to read in the morning, because I feel like I can sit longer than in the afternoon or evening. I really read every chance I can get though and don't really worry about what time it is.




**This is a weekly meme. Freda's Voice is responsible for the prize shipment.


  1. I'm usually an afternoon reader, but, like you, I'll read just about any time I can.

  2. This sounds good. I never read this author. Have a great weekend!

    1. She gets a HUGE recommendation from me... actually start with Verity!!!

  3. When do I read? I rarely read novels before noon but I may read news on-line; I listen to audiobooks when I'm driving if the trip is longer than 15 minutes; I always read in bed before sleep; otherwise I read when I can.

  4. I loved Verity! It’s one of my favorite reads this year!

  5. What a beginning! Page 56 also gives you a feeling of unease. I understand Hoover is very popular now, but I have not read anything by here. Maybe something for Christmas reading?
    Just to let you know that I have changed my blog to a new provider. New address is: - Hope to see you there.

    1. Big recommendation from me, and I strongly suggest starting with Verity like I did.
      Congrats on the new provider for your domain!

  6. Hi there Freda! Verity has been my first Colleen Hoover read and so far still my favorite.

    Great book to share on Friday 56!

    I am so sorry that I've been a tad quiet the last couple of months, gosh - this year was crazy! I do hope next year will be better!

    1. No worries about being quiet. We are grateful whenever you are able to participate!

  7. An interesting quote. I've never wanted to read a Colleen Hoover book - except maybe this one.

    I am mainly an evening reader, but have been falling asleep recently.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. I read Verity last year and it wasn't for me - an outlier opinion, I know. It just goes to show there's a book for everyone, and it doesn't have to be the same book. Glad you enjoyed it so much.

    1. I love when someone has an opposing opinion. It was me when I hated Station Eleven or Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow and everyone else loved it, so I get it.

  9. I haven't read any of Colleen Hoover's books. The passages you shared are very enticing! I should read her soon.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
