Book Beginnings On Fridays and The Friday 56

Meowww everyone! 😸

Today I am combining two memes – “Book Beginning on Friday” and “The Friday 56”!

Since I am currently reading, and almost done with, Happy Singles Day by Ann Marie Walker, I am sharing the first few sentences of the book and a short excerpt of the book for The Friday 56! But first, here’s what the book is about!

About The Book


Single and proud of it! Oh, oops…

As a Certified Professional Organizer, everything in Paige Parker’s world is as it should be. Perfect apartment, perfect office, perfect life. And now, the perfect vacation planned to honor Singles Day. After all, what’s better than celebrating her pride in being single? Because who needs a man anyway? They have zero taste in quality television, leave the toilet seat up, and sleep with your best friend. No thanks. Her life is fine just the way it is.

As the owner of a now-dormant bed & breakfast, Lucas Croft’s life is simple and quiet. It’s only him and his five-year-old daughter, which is just the way he likes it. Because who needs a woman anyway? They nag you to clean up your stuff, want the toilet seat put down, and expect the dishes to be done the same day the meal is cooked. No thanks. His life is fine just the way it is.

But when Paige books a room that Lucas’ well-intentioned sister listed without his knowledge, their two worlds collide. If they can survive the week together, they just might discover exactly what they’ve both been missing.

Now, let’s get started with Book Beginning on Friday!

Book Beginning On Friday

Book Beginnings On Friday is hosted by rose city reader, and it prompts us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with the initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

Here are the first few sentence of the book and my impression!

Paige Parker did not need a man.

She’d just told her assistant as much, but that didn’t stop him from swiping through the photos he’d prescreened for her on some app that promised to find a date for even the loneliest of spinsters. Okay, maybe they didn’t word it exactly like that.

My Impression:

Reading these first few lines of the book, I knew I was going to love it as much as I was anticipating it. The writing style especially pulled me in, and really, I didn’t want to keep the books down, but life calls😔

The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda at Freda’s Voice. This meme prompts us to grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader and share a short excerpt. Here’s an excerpt from Happy Singles Day!

“Deal,” he said.

“But we’ll have to skip shaking on it.” He winked, then raised the spatula he held in one hand and the mixing bowl that was in the other. “My hands are a bit full.”

And that’s all! Keep an eye for the review of this one soon! As always until my next post, take care, and thank you for reading! 💖
