BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
It is Friday, so time to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading or want to highlight this week. Please share the link to your post in the linky below. If you share on social media, please use the #bookbeginnings hashtag.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
In early 2008, about a year and a half after my first novel had made me the new darling of American letters, I was seized by a terrible case of writer's block -- a common affliction, I am told, for writers who have enjoyed sudden, meteoric success.
-- from Chapter One of The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair by Joel Dicker.
Over in Instagram, I found the Cloak & Dagger Christmas challenge, where people read mystery books in December. BookTuber Kate Howe hosts the even on Instagram on her IG account, No Compliments to Your Mother. You can participate simply by reading one mystery in December, or at higher levels.
Freda at Freda's Voice hosts another teaser event on Fridays. Participants share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book they are reading -- or from 56% of the way through the audiobook or ebook. Please visit Freda's Voice for details and to leave a link to your post.
