Book Beginning: Hot Season by Susan DeFreitas



THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING



MY BOOK BEGINNING



When Katie met Huckleberry, he was juggling on the curb at the end of Second Street with a rose between his teeth.

Hot Season by Susan DeFreitas. This debut novel is already generating a lot of buzz from the likes of Huffington Post, Book Nudge, and and some pretty cool authors, including comparisons to Donna Tartt's campus novel, The Secret History.

Susan DeFreitas will be presenting on “The Small Press Publishing Landscape” at Tsunami Books in Eugene, Oregon on April 2, 2017. Check the Tsunami Books website for more details.

Hi Gilion,

This one is new to me also and, I have to be honest, at first glance of both those opening lines and the complete premise, not one to which I would give a second glance if I came across it on the bookshop shelves.

I did think that the cover art was eye-catching, but then couldn't really see any relevance to the storyline itself.

Ah Well! it wouldn't do if we all enjoyed the same books and I hope that you like it as much as all the great ratings and reviews it has already received.

Thanks for sharing and hosting :)
