Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.
I'll have to admit that I picked this one up because of the book cover. What do you think? If you aren't sold by the book cover, I guess we should move on to the first paragraph.
It was a Friday when the girl came into the Archives for the first time, the first Friday after they'd changed the clocks. Spring ahead, fall back: Kathleen had once learned some rhyme about that when she was a schoolchild, but she no longer remembered it. It had been some time since she'd been a schoolchild. This was early November, the leaves mostly down, lying wet and slick all over Boston.
Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
Open to a random page of your current read and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
Here's mine from page 66:
"I'm going to bed. Came to say good night." Her voice was rough in the semidarkenss of the hallway. "Okay," said Natalie, but her mother didn't leave. Natalie didn't look up, just continued typing. Because there are too many secrets. That sounded idiotic. She deleted it. Because my father left us. Worse. Delete. Because I want to know where I came from. She let that one stand and considered it, studiously ignoring her mother's presence in the hallway.
