Friday Memes 12/26

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Do you have a book with a location that you just HAD to visit after reading the book?

My Answer:
The two main places that books have made me want to visit are Italy because of The River of Time Series by Lisa T. Bergren and Boston because of Julie Lessman's O'Conner family saga!

Hosted by: Rose City Reader

"Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name."

Of all the days for the pastor to expound past the allotted time for his sermon, he had to pick potluck day. The day of the quarterly business meeting. The day of the Minnesota Vikings home opener-against the Green Bay Packers, no less.
Evergreen by Susan May Warren

My Thoughts
Sounds like someone is anxious to get out of church!

That's a clever opening. I hope you're enjoying the story.
My Friday post features CHORUS LINES, CAVIAR, AND CORPSES.

I LOVE Italy. I haven't read that book, though.

ENJOY your weekend.

Happy Hopping!!

I've read good things about Bergren's River of Time series, but I haven't read them.

I rarely travel, so I haven't visited any of my favorite novels' settings, but I do have a wish list of places to visit in my post on the Blog Hop.

Happy hopping!

I think I have been there and done that some Sundays.

Interesting opening you have there :)

An enticing opening and emotions/frustrations experienced by many I suspect ;-) It would draw me into finding out more about this book.
Best wishes for 2015.

Sandra-It is clever and I loved the book!

Elizabeth-It's an amazing series!

Jolene-You should definitely read the RoTs! I haven't traveled much either but I think it'd be fun to visit places from books!

JC-Haha I'm sure we all have!


Sherry-It does snag the attention in an amusing way!
