The Night Sister, by Jennifer McMahon (Doubleday, August 2015). These are the book's opening lines:
Amy's heart hammers, and her skin is slick with sweat.
Focus, she tells herself.
Don't think about the thing in the tower.
But maybe Amy should be thinking about the thing in the tower!
So far, I love it. Any book that begins with THINGs in towers is a book I feel I should read. Hope the rest of the book can live up to that opening.
I've never read anything by Jennifer McMahon, but I've got several of her earlier books on my TBR list. Looking forward to getting started on this one.
Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays. As she says, the idea is to post the first sentence (or so) of the book you're currently reading, along with any first impressions or thoughts you have about the book, the author, etc. It's a wonderful way of adding new books to your must-read list, and a chance to connect with other readers and bloggers.
