First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hoarding Books.
Well, hello there Friday! For a while I thought you wouldn’t ever come. It’s been a tiring week at work and what’s left of my already frayed nerves are getting even more hits. I expect this to continue until the first week of July, or maybe until this work-related thing gets cleared up.
Anyway, to get me out of the real world a bit, I’ll just go read book after book. I’m breaking out of my usual plate of sci-fi and fantasy and reading something by the great Nora Roberts.
On Friday, July 22, 2005, Simone Knox ordered a large Fanta – orange – to go with her popcorn and Swedish Fish. The choice, her standard night-at-the-movies fare, changed her life, and very likely saved it, Still, she’d never drink Fanta again.
I’m only 25% into this book, but the first part – the mall shooting part – chilled me to the bone. I had to stop to breathe and direct my attention somewhere else because imagining that kind of thing happening in real life – and sadly, it had numerous times – scares the life out of me. I don’t know and I’ll never understand how some people could just think to do such: kill, take lives and end stories.
I’m hoping to finish this book this coming weekend as I have 2 days off work (yay!) Then, on Sunday, I’m going to Randy Ribay’s book launch for Patron Saints of Nothing. Plans, plans – I will keep up to them.
Well, that’s it for me today. I wish you all a happy weekend full of reading and fun.
