Friday Reads 12th May 2017

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!

The Dead House
Book Beginning:
"I am myself again. Carly has disappeared into the umbra, and I am alone."

Friday 56:
"It's the pills. Nothing more. It's in my mind - not real, not real, NOT REAL."

I'm kind of cheating with the Book Beginning because there are actually a few pages before this but this is the first line from Kaitlyn's POV and really starts the story. (The other pages are newspaper clippings and such that set the scene and are sort of exposition). I am only about 20 pages in so far but really intrigued. I've heard super mixed things about this and so far it's nothing like I expected but I can't wait to find out what's going on and what's real and what's not!

My review for last weeks Friday Read - Ararat by Christopher Golden - is now up if you want to check it out! 


You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare), Facebook and Instagram to keep up with what we are reading.

I broke down and cheated on my book budget. Came across this while browsing Amazon and nabbed it. Looking forward to quite a story!

Is it a split-personality thing or something even more sinister?

This sounds interesting. Kind of like something I read by Ellen Hopkins once (maybe).
