Book Beginning: Rash: A Memoir by Lisa Kusel

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



One night, my husband, Victor, turned to me in bed and said, "Sweetie, I think I need to do something different."

Rash: A Memoir by Lisa Kusel. What could go wrong when you, your husband, and your toddler go to live in a tropical paradise? A lot.



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.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, 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.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING




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.


MY FRIDAY 56

That night, in the middle of a tropical downpour, the three of up were running back to Bali Putra from dinner when suddenly a motorbike swerved right up onto the sidewalk in front of us.
"Pak Victor!"

Not such a paradise it seems!

This sounds like an interesting one.

Totally love the sound of this, because it sounds like it's going to be anything but paradise!

I would have walked right past the cover of this one. It's interesting looking but not appealing to me. I'd love for you and your readers to check out my BB and 56 https://lisaksbookthoughts.blogspot.com/2019/04/its-cozy-food-friday-that-means-its_12.html

I looked this up because for some reason the title and cover seemed more like a novel than a memoir to me. Sounds like an excellent cautionary tale for people who want to move to a new place thinking it will solve all their problems, a trap that is easy to fall into. Looks really good. Hope you enjoy it.

Great beginning! I don't read memoirs but this one does sound interesting. This week I am featuring The Curse of the Silver Pharaoh by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris. Happy reading!

That beginning is fantastic. I think of Sci-Fi. I can't believe it's a memoir. I will make a note of the title.
