Book Beginnings on Fridays and The Friday 56

Another Friday and another meme. This week I have chosen Paulo Coelho's Adultery for the beginning and page 56.

"Every morning, when I open my eyes to the so-called "new day," I feel like closing them again, staying in bed, and not getting up. But I can't do that."

The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice

"I am once again the mistress of my thoughts and my actions. What seemed impossible this morning has become reality this afternoon."

Coelho being one of my favourite authors, I am looking forward reading this book. Have you read it?


  1. I've only read his book about Mata Hari, which I enjoyed a lot so I'd love to read more of his writing!

  2. Sounds so tempting! I kind of feel the same way when I wake up...LOL.

    Here's mine: “EVERY NOTE PLAYED”

  3. I like both the excerpts but have never read the author. This week I am highlighting The Queen of Sorrow by Sarah Beth Durst. Happy reading!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful read! Happy weekend!

  5. Thanks for popping by today, Lisbeth. And thanks for the recommendation. I've yet to read any of her books!

  6. I've been told I need to try this author. Happy reading. :)
