Friday Linkups: The Peach Keeper
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
When you read a book that isn't for review, do you still feed the need to write a review of it?
Yes and no. Helpful right? For the most part it depends on the book. If it's a read that's not especially memorable in any way than I probably won't. The audio book I'm listening to right now I'm probably won't write a review for because I don't have much to say about it. I'm enjoying it but it's not something that's going to stick with me. But, in general I do write a review. Partly because it helps me remember the book itself better and partly so I'll have some reviews on standby so I'll have something to post if a week gets away from me!
The day Paxton Osgood took the box of heavy-stock, foil-lined envelopes to the post office, the ones she'd had a professional calligrapher address, it began to rain so hard the air turned white as bleached cotton.
I'm quite curious what is in the envelopes that involve good stationary and a calligrapher. Wedding invitations maybe? The visual of the rain turning the sky white is interesting. I'm not sure I've seen it rain that hard but it does make me visualize a super heavy rain.
It'd been much longer in high school, and she's always worn it in a messy braid. Actually, he really didn't know if she'd always worn it like that, it was just how he remembered it the last time he saw her, walking out of the school.
Since it doesn't sound like these two knew each other very well (if at all) I'm curious why he remembers the last time he saw her so vividly.
So have you read this? Any authors that you really want to read but for some reason just haven't? Is the better question how many authors do you really want to read but haven't?
