Book Beginnings on Fridays and The Friday 56



Difficult week to find a book for this meme since most of the books are packed. Yes, in the latter process of moving and most books are already in Sweden, and I am here in Brussels finalising the rest. I did find one by my bedside, which I am also reading for the time being, and that is Elisabeth Luard's My Life as a Wife - Love, Liquor and What to Do About Other Women. It is a humorous book as she looks back on her life.

"This is the story of my life as a wife. Or how to stay married for forty years without actually murdering your husband. A love story.

  1. Sounds interesting but not something I would normally choose. I hope you are enjoying it. This week I am spotlighting Triple Crown by Felix Francis. Happy reading!

    1. It was sort of entertaining and gives a good idea of the life these sort of people live. However, the husband does not come out as a very nice person.

  2. The first line hooked me. By other women I thought maybe the title meant catty friends, but looking up the summary, I see her husband was a philanderer. Another example of humor arising from dark places. Looks good.

    Hope you are reunited with your books soon.

    1. Now I am re-united with my books. I also find the first line intriguing. She really loves her husband, but even so, he does not come out as a very nice person.

  3. LOL @ the opening. IT is kinda true though, I know after 18 years with my hubby. :-) Happy Victoria day weekend!

    1. It was all right. It gives a good insight into the life these people lived. A little bit from the upper class. However, it does not mean that life is easy!
