This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join in the fun go to The Friday 56.

*Grab a book, any book.

It's the annual Ho Ho Ho Read-A-Thon and I'm neck deep in Christmas stories. Currently, I'm reading a romance, "The Heart of Christmas", by Brenda Novak. The quote is from 56%  in the eGalley.

Gangs had never been part of his privileged existence-other than what he saw on the news reports on TV-and he resented that Rex hadn't led the same kind of uncomplicated, pristine life.

Doesn't exactly match the cover does it? The whole book has been different from what I expected, still not sure if I actually like it.


  1. An early start on your holiday reading! Hope you end up liking it afterall.

  2. Yes, way different than the cover. Makes me wonder about the rest of the book.Check out mine when you can please!

  3. You are right, the excerpt seems different from what one expects...but I am curious. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE AFTER WIFE”

  4. I definitely would not expect anything about gangs to be a part of this book! However, I've read other books by this author and enjoyed them. I hope the story gets better and that you end up liking it.
    My Friday post features DEAR SUGAR.

  5. That quote is not at all what I was expecting. Very interesting!
    Check out my Friday 56

  6. Doesn't match the cover at all... lol... Happy weekend!

  7. One of my favorite romance authors! I have this one waiting for me to read.

  8. I agree that sentence doe not match that cover. LOL I hope you end up enjoying the book. Have a great weekend.

  9. Definitely doesn't match the cover! I would expect an excerpt about hot chocolate and gingerbread far more than anything about gangs! Novak's books can definitely have some interesting twists. Hope you're enjoying this one!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let's talk!
