Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!
"The Houston mansion was huge. Dark. Deserted.Except for the corpse hanging in the living room." - Hush by Karen Robards
"Their marriage hadn't worked. They hadn't been soul mates, or even compatible life partners. But he had changed her life. He had introduced her to expensive soap." - Hush by Karen Robards
I am really enjoying Hush it is a very exciting read. I have recently read two other Karen Robards books (one of which I posted a review for yesterday) but this is the one that grabbed me from that first sentence and hasn't let go since. I am looking forward to finding out how everything will be resolved.
That's a great opening! I'd have to keep reading just to find out why that corpse was hanging in the living room. Besides, I enjoy books set in Texas.ReplyDelete
My Friday post features THE REVENANT.
I haven't read a whole lot of books set in Texas! But I enjoyed this one!Delete
Wonderful beginning! And a good teaser, too -- it's sad about the marriage, though. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy!ReplyDelete
I do love this beginning, definitely a shame about their marriage!Delete
I'm not familiar with this author, but Hush does look interesting.ReplyDelete
I only discovered her recently but I am really enjoying her books so far.Delete
That is a very dark beginning and I love the cover too. Looks like a winner. :)ReplyDelete
It was a really fun read! :)Delete
I haven't heard of this but the first sentence hooked me! I'll have to check it out on goodreads! It's been too long since I've had a book with a good murder in it. :D Here is my Friday 56 for this week. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
It was a really fun book, less murder mystery and more adventure/thriller though!Delete
I like expensive soap. And I like Karen Robards. This looks like a good one. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
If you like expensive soap AND Karen Robards then you should definitely read this! :)Delete
LOL I like expensive soap too... and that beginning pulled me in. I wonder if it was the hubby who was hanging. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
You'd have to read to find out! I really enjoyed the book!Delete
What a beginning! Sounds like it is full of many twists and turns. Enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
It was a great book and I've definitely been in the mood for this genre!Delete
The beginning really grabs you and the 56 is kinda funny in a strange way - great choice - will be adding it to my list - here's my Friday memeReplyDelete
Thats exactly how I felt about the quotes!Delete
That makes me want to continue!ReplyDelete
Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).
Yeah, its one of those perfect starting sentences! Draws you in and sets the tone for the book!Delete
