First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hording Books.
Look who’s back from an unplanned blogging hiatus. Me! Well, truthfully I’m still in the middle of a week-long vacation with my family. We’re visiting my mom’s family in her home province in the far north.
I love it here! It’s so peaceful and quiet, a far cry from life in the city. I took the liberty to use my time here (or at least the time I’m not going from one uncle/aunt’s home pigging out on fresh fruit and sticky rice cakes) to catch up on my ARCs. I’ll be featuring the one I am currently reading for this week’s FLF.
The rain was falling sideways in the Marsh. It was never a straight downpour. It was always crooked. Just like the people here. Con artists and hustlers and crocs, the lot of them.
Anyone can be saint until they’re hungry.
I’m only 20% into Sky Without Stars and, right now, I feel like I’m just starting to get to know the main characters. I don’t know what to make of it yet, though this one is being marketed as a Les Misarables re-telling. I guess we’ll see, right?
Sky Without Stars is set to be released next Tuesday, March 26.
Come and join in the fun. Visit Hoarding Books to see what other FLF bloggers has to share.
