Weekend Blog Hops - 29 June 2018

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book blogger hopping.

Do you have an Instagram account? If so, do you only follow book folks?

Yes, I do. (It's @nickijmarkus for anyone interested.) I do follow a lot of bookish folk (book bloggers, book stores, authors, and publishers) on there, but not exclusively. I also follow actors, musicians, artists, and a few friends and family members.

Opening sentence:
I've always hated waiting, ever since I was a small girl.







From page 56:
When not in pursuit of Mr Williams, DB fielded the occasional phone call from what Nell had originally assumed was a wife or girlfriend, but eventually realised was in fact his mother.




My Current Read 
The Book of Ordinary People
Claire Varley

Three things different. Three things the same.

Meet Evangelia, a grieving souvlaki shop owner; Rik, a news hack haunted by his past; Nell, a lawyer who worries over her soul; and Ben, a young father desperate to measure up - four people who have everything and nothing to do with one another.

But each of their lives is about to be changed forever by Aida, a woman who never wanted their help, nor their sympathy. A woman with her own tale to tell...

  3. I can sympathize with that beginning! Patience isn't my particular virtue either.

    1. Yes, I can easily lose patience too.

  4. I'm so not a patient person, that beginning hit me! Sounds like a great book! Happy Canada day weekend, and happy early Independence day!

  9. Oh, you have an Instagram account? COOL! I'll go check it out! I can't promise to follow, though....I don't have an account myself, because of lack of time. If I did, though, I would DEFINITELY follow yours!!

    Your reading pick looks very interesting! And I LOVE that cover, too!! I'll take a closer look on Goodreads!

    Thanks for sharing! Thanks as well for commenting on my own BBH post!! <3 :)

  10. Came here form the BBH linky. Glad you still have the time and energy to maintain an IG account. I don't though. But if ever I have one, I'd definitely dedicate it too book photos and in following book folks.

    The opening sentence in the book you are reading is intriguing. But I am so not that girl. On meet-ups, I'd rather be the one waiting than the one being waited on.

    That cover from The Book of Ordinary People looks really pretty. :)
