Book Beginnings and The Friday 56

Friday, 18 August 2017
On Fridays I will share excerpts from whatever I am reading that day. First, Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Reader  then The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.

First share the opening lines of your novel, then turn to page 56 (or 56%) and share a few lines!



~~~
This week's novel is If The Creek Don't Rise- Leah Weiss

Beginning: "I struggle to my feet, straighten my back, lift my chin, then he hits me again."

56%: "The next morning, I find I didn't bolt the door against my slithering fears. The door doesn't even have a lock."

Thoughts: I'm enjoying this novel so far, but I'm only a little way through it so we'll see!

Happy reading!
