BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
Welcome to Book Beginnings on Fridays, where participants tease their fellow participants with the opening sentence (or so) of the books they are reading this week.
Please post a link to your Book Beginning blog post or social media post in the linky box below. If you post or link to social media, please use the hashtag #bookbeginnings (with an S on the end).
MY BOOK BEGINNINGAmphibians is a new short story collection from Lara Tupper and it launched this week:
On the lake the loons are sparse, but Helen has acquired a throw pillow, a present from the girl, stitched by a local artisan and bought with allowance money from an overpriced gift shop.
Amphibians won the Leapfrog Fiction Contest so was published by Leapfrog Press as the prize. Lara Tupper is the author of the wonderful historical novel Off Island. Visit Lara Tupper's website for information about the book and online events.
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.
