Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
Perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins, and Tana French, R. K. Jackson’s lyrical, twisty psychological thriller debut follows an aspiring journalist as she uncovers dark truths in a seaswept Southern town—aided by a mysterious outcast and pursued by a ruthless killer.
When Martha Covington moves to Amberleen, Georgia, after her release from a psychiatric ward, she thinks her breakdown is behind her. A small town with a rich history, Amberleen feels like a fresh start. Taking a summer internship with the local historical society, Martha is tasked with gathering the stories of the Geechee residents of nearby Shell Heap Island, the descendants of slaves who have lived by their own traditions for the last three hundred years.
As Martha delves into her work, the voices she thought she left behind start whispering again, and she begins to doubt her recovery. When a grisly murder occurs, Martha finds herself at the center of a perfect storm—and she’s the perfect suspect. Without a soul to vouch for her innocence or her sanity, Martha disappears into the wilderness, battling the pull of madness and struggling to piece together a supernatural puzzle of age-old resentments, broken promises, and cold-blooded murder. She finds an unexpected ally in a handsome young man fighting his own battles. With his help, Martha journeys through a terrifying labyrinth—to find the truth and clear her name, if she can survive to tell the tale.
This one is coming up on my list to read. I have to finish up a book I am reading first then I will be digging into this one. I think it sounds really good so I can’t wait.
She wants to kill you.
Ten Months later Martha sat on an iron bench in front of the Wash-a-Fold and watched a column of ants as they marched away carrying crumbs from the smashed corner of a ham sandwich.
Well, the first sentence of the prologue was pretty interesting…lol, but the chapter one first paragraph was not as interesting.
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday Teaser but you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.
“I’ve been reading up about schizophrenia,” Nick said. “It’s pretty unusual for someone with that condition to turn violent, especially without any warning.” Nick turned the pepper shaker in a half circle, turned it back. “Well, there were signs, you know,” Morris said. “She was just concealing them from you. I’m sure you heard about what was happening out at the Pritchett place.”
Well, now this sounds interesting! 🙂
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.
Does your significant other share your reading passion?
I don’t have a significant other. If I did though I would hope he would be a reader.
