Sunday Salon: Friday's Child

The Sunday Salon.com



I've decided to join The Sunday Salon! Hope it'll encourage and motivate me to read more on Sundays when I'm more inclined to spend the day sleeping or just wasting time online. I'm currently reading Friday's Child by Georgette Heyer, a review copy sent to me by Sourcebooks. I love Sourcebooks! They send me fabulous books for me to review.

Okay, right now I'm at Chapter 13 of Friday's Child. It's been a slow read for me but I'm trying. This is my first Georgette Heyer book and I'm not liking it so far. I hope that as I read, the story will get more interesting but I doubt it.

I think Hero doesn't really have a mind of her own and she only wants to please her husband, Sherry all the time. She married him so that she can escape being a governess and being looked down on. Well, she's quite a pleasant character and gets along with almost everybody.

I guess I'll go back to the book now. Will post updates after I've read a few more chapters.

  4. Hello Josette, pleased to 'meet' you. I think you're right about Georgette Heyer. I don't think she'd be my sort of writer either.
