Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #62


It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from a current or upcoming read with:

  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring a library book that I just started reading:
 Evil Librarian  
by Michelle Knudsen

Italian class.  The shining highlight of my Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Not because I am any good at Italian (I'm not), or because I like the teacher (I don't).  It's because Ryan Halsey sits one row over and two rows up from where I sit, which is absolutely perfect for forty-five minutes of semi-shameless staring.
Page 56:  "Ms. Bennett looks instantly concerned.  Her worry about what sort of emergency might involve a phone call in the middle of class conveniently distracts her from asking if I have a pass from the principal's secretary, or anything like that."
My thoughts:  
Based on the title, I couldn't resist this book.  Reading the opening paragraph reminded me of the high school crushes I had oh so many years ago . . .
Which book are you reading now or about to start?
