First Lines Friday, Friday 56 and Book Blogger Hop ~ 14 Aug 2020

First Lines Friday

Today’s FIRST LINES are from The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz-Zafon.

That year at Christmas time, every morning dawned laced with frost under leaden skies. A bluish hue tinged the city and people walked by, wrapped up to their ears and drawing lines of vapour with their breath in the cold air. Very few stopped to gaze at the shop window of Sempere & Sons; fewer still ventured inside to ask for that lost book that had been waiting for them all their lives and whose sale, poetic fancies aside, would have contributed to shoring up the bookshop’s ailing finances.

Friday 56 by Freda’s Voice

RULES:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to Page 56 or 56% on your ereader.
If you have to improvise, that is okay.
*Find a snippet, short and sweet.
*Post it, and add the url to your post in the Linky below.

My FRIDAY 56 is from page no. 57 of The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur.

How often do you visit your local library? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

I do not have a schedule when it comes to visiting the library, but something like once every month, I guess? It usually depends on when I have read the previous books I borrowed, but sometimes I do end up visiting anyways to check if there are any interesting reads even when I am not planning to get any ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    1. Zafon’s writing is absolute gold! His description of Barcelona, be it during the dark times of war or during post -war years, makes me want to see Barcelona through his eyes. I’m so happy you liked it!! ❤️😍
