Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week.
This week I’m starting The Lost Apothecary – look for my blog tour entry next week!
February 3, 1791
She would come at daybreak – the woman whose letter I held in my hands, the woman whose name I did not yet know.
I knew neither her age nor where she lived. I did not know her rank in society nor the dark things of which she dreamed when night fell. She could be a victim or a transgressor. A new wife or a vengeful widow. A nursemaid or a courtesan.
But despite all that I did not know, I understood this: the woman knew exactly who she wanted dead.
I don’t know about you, but I’m hooked! What do you think? Does this book beginning grab your attention?
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. It starts each Friday and runs through the following Thursday. Each week, there’s a new prompt featuring a book-related question. It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers.
Absolutely! I love Goodreads. Y’all come find me there. Drop your profile link in the comments if you’re so inclined! New bookish friends are always a good thing.
And check out what others are saying on the hop here.
