Book Beginnings on Fridays #2- Book of Love

Happy Friday! Hope everybody’s week is going well. This week’s Book Beginnings on Fridays will be a continuation of my post for Can’t Wait Wednesday.

Book Beginnings on Fridays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Rose City Reader. Bloggers and readers alike post a sentence or so from the book they are currently enjoying as well as any thoughts that sentence inspired.

As I’ve already mentioned for this week’s Book Beginnings on Friday I will be sharing a few lines from a book that I have already briefly discussed.

“The Book of Love” by Erin Satie was given to me courtesy of Netgalley as an ARC and I’m thoroughly enjoying it at the moment.

Alistair Chandos, Duke of Stroud, welcomed the drum major into his office with a hearty handshake and a cheery, “Can I offer you some tea? It’s dreadfully cold out”.

The Book of Love by Erin Satie

I find it marvelous how such a short sentence could provoke so many questions. Straight away I’m wondering why is there a drum major in a duke’s office? And who exactly is the Duke of Stroud? At the same time, it seems so very English to me that an introduction begins with tea.

So far I’m finding this book very entertaining and I’m only two chapters in. Stay tuned for a more detailed review once I am finished.

What are you reading this week?

  1. I don’t know why, but it looks to me like the folds in the bustle of her dress (on the cover) mimic the pages in the book spread at the edge. I wonder if that was intentional. Anyway, hope you continue to enjoy it.
