TUESDAY INTROS | Black Eyed Susans

I'm reviving my participation in the First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros linky hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. I used to take part in this particular linky earlier on in the year, but then things got busy and my participation fizzled; but I'm back at it! The premise behind Tuesday Intros is to share the first paragraph or so of the book you're reading. I love the premise behind this linky as it's great for book recs, but you also get a feel for an author's writing style.


FIRST LINES
Thirty-two hours of my life are missing.
My best friend, Lydia, tells me to imagine those hours like old clothes in the back of a dark closet. Shut my eyes. Open the door. Move things around. Search.
The things I do remember, I'd rather not.


WOULD YOU CONTINUE READING?

    1. I love rereading, but of course nothing is like your very first impression of a book.

      Haha - I'm still quite early on in the book, but I'm enjoying so far!

  7. It sounds a bit creepy but like one of those books that you can't help but keep reading because you have to know what happens next. Good one! Here's the link to my Tuesday intro and teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1i9

  8. Sounds scary. The opening makes me want to know what happened and whether or not she ever remembers. I'll read this one.
    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog today.

    1. Sounds like we're all in for some great reads this week! I get that unsettling feeling already, and I'm quite early on into the book; keen to see where it's all leading.
