Friday 56                       Book Blogger Hop


Friday Follow


The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books and these are the rules:

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.
 
1.  Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below
In your link, please state the main genre that you review:  eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc.

Example:  Crazy-for-Books (eclectic adult fiction) 

2. Post about the Hop on your blog.  Spread the word about the book party!  The more the merrier!  In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).  


This week's question comes from Barb who blogs at Sugarbeat's Books:
 
 "Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?"
 
My answer: My favorite genre is murder mystery's. I'm fascinated with the investigation part, the whole "CSI" thing. Some of my favorite authors, Patricia Cornwell, Tess Gerritsen, Faye Kellerman,
Sue Grafton, Linda Castillo, just to name a few. :0) 
 
 Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice
 
Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.
 
 My 56 comes from the Boston Terans book Gardens of Grief 

Gardens of Grief(page 56 is blank so this comes from page 57)

"John Lourdes and the dragoman faced each other over a candle on the rooftop."

I have just started reading this book. Not my usual genre but it's intriguing so far.
