I have just discovered some book Memes BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 – hosted by Freda’s Voice and in order to spice up the blog a little I am going to start taking part in these every Friday. Both memes involve sharing excerpts from a current book you are reading – the beginning and a sentence from page 56.
I am currently reading:
Did you see Melody? by Sophie Hannah
9 October 2017
If I could turn and run, I would. Run back home, however long it took. Six months, probably – and I’d need to be able to sprint across the Atlantic Ocean. My legs twitch with the urge to race back to Patrick, Jess and Olly and pretend none of this ever happened.
Who is running, and what or who are they running from?? Where have they come from?
I am guessing it is a female – a wife and mother perhaps, but apart from that i have no idea who, what, why or where we are at this moment and time.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
‘I was trying to protect you.’ Heidi fought back tears. ‘Since your interview with Mallory Tondini, there’s been a lot of respect out there for your judgment. Some of it grudging, sure, but still . . . respect.
Ok so I have idea who Heidi is as I am only 1 chapter in, and I don’t this gives much away as to who she is talking – who was she trying to protect, what was the interview about?
So many questions I better find the answer to!
