It’s Friday Meme day!
Every Friday, I link back to two other blogs. Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings, where you share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, as well as your thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else it inspires.
*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)
This week I’m highlighting I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll.
Blurb from Goodreads: When Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it—until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert. But just as she’s decided to call for help, something stops her. The next day, she wakes up to the news that one of the girls—beautiful, green-eyed Anna Ballard—has disappeared.
A year later, Anna is still missing. Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to do, and she’s not the only one who can’t forget. Someone is sending her threatening letters—letters that make her fear for her life.
Then an anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide. Anna’s best friend, Sarah, hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night—and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own.
Someone knows where Anna is—and they’re not telling. But they are watching Ella.
I made a mistake. I know that now.
What a way to start off!
The Friday 56
He did not recognize the man who was just at the hourse. Tall and slim, but too far away to make out his face. For a moment Henry wonders if it was the police and experiences a familiar jolt of adrenaline.
A year on and unlike his wife, Henry is not waiting for their daughter to turn up alive.
I can’t imagine what these people have gone through, having their daughter missing for the past year.
I’ve just started reading this, (on page 14 now!) and so far I’m loving the character Ella. She’s so concerned and worried about these girls that she doesn’t even know, and is shocked, horrified and feeling extremely guilty to find out that one of them is on the news the next day, missing.
What do you think? Have you read this one? Would this book appeal to you?
Thanks for reading and Happy Weekend!
