  1. “Muchos años después, frente al pelotón de fusilamiento, el coronel Aureliano Buendía había de recordar aquella tarde remota en que su padre lo llevó a conocer el hielo.” -Cien anos de soledad, Gabriel García Márquez (rough translation) “Many years later, as he stood in front of the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía had to remember that far away afternoon in which his father took him to discover ice.” – 100 Years of Solitude, Gabriel Garcìa Márquez

  2. Kathleen’s book looks great!

    My first line is from Never Leave Me by Jody Hedlund:
    I’m dying, and we can’t change that.” Even though Ellen Creighton spoke as softly and gently as possible, she could do nothing to soften the harshness of the truth.

  3. Happy Friday!
    The book I featured this week is Pomegranate Lane by Donna Anuszczyk but I’m currently reading With Love, Wherever You Are by Dandi Daley Mackall. I’m just starting it so I’ll share the first line from chapter 2 where I am currently: “Frank Daley checked the chart at the foot of the old man’s hospital bed.” I hope you have a wonderful reading weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! I’m featuring A Stranger’s Game by Colleen Coble on my blog, but I just started reading Stone by Ronie Kendig so I’ll share the first line here: “Some days were meant to test a man; others meant to undo him.” Have a great weekend and happy reading!
