First lines Friday and Friday 56

Hello hello my lovelies,

How are we doing? Can you actually believe we are in another decade?! I know it's a real cliche but time does seem to fly quickly.

Anyway, on to today's meme. I am joining in with 2 today. 

First up is First Lines Friday. This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words. All you have to do is reveal the first line or so of a book (it doesn't have to be your current book) and then reveal what it is.

So here is mine:

It was my dad who gave me the idea of using quantum physics to find my mum.

Any ideas?


Ok, ok. It's The Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge.

The Many Worlds of Albie Bright (Paperback)


"A book with a big brain, big laughs and a big, big heart." - Frank Cottrell-Boyce An extraordinary novel for anyone who's ever been curious. When Albie's mum dies, it's natural he should wonder where she's gone. His parents are both scientists and they usually have all the answers. Dad mutters something about Albie's mum being alive and with them in a parallel universe. So Albie finds a box, his mum's computer and a rotting banana, and sends himself through time and space to find her... "Christopher Edge's warm hearted writing sucks you in from the start with a sparkling take on parallel worlds, fuelled by a delightfully fresh understanding of quantum physics and a fearless ability to take on life, loss and dreaming big while never talking down to his readers. Bananas will never be the same again. I have one complaint about this book. I wanted it to be longer." - Samira Ahmed Cover illustration by Matt Saunders.

The second meme today is The Friday 56 and is hosted by Freda's Voice.

Simply turn to page 56 or 56% on your ereader and post a snippet. Simple as that!

So here is my snippet from 56% on my kindle:

He started when he saw the title of the book. 'Treasure Island! An interesting book for you to have selected - what do you know of the isle of treasure? And I wonder what our captain knows of it to have this here book among his collection.'

It's from Pages & Co, Tilly and the Bookwanderers.

Pages & Co.: Tilly and the Bookwanderers - Pages & Co. 1 (Paperback)

You never know, I may have inspired you to add another book to your growing TBR. I hope so!

Happy reading,
