Friday Linkups: Louisiana Fever
Today it's time for my Friday linkups with Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 from Freda's Voice.
Halloween Edition Question:
"Where is the creepiest place you have read a book?"
When I was in college I worked as a runner for a law firm that had it's office in a historic house. The house itself wasn't particularly creepy - it was a very clean lined federal style house not like the over the top gothic Victorian across the street. Then one day I ended up in the office by myself for some reason and the noises that I always thought were just regular old house creeks sounded an awful lot like footsteps and there was the constant feel that if you turned your head there was going to be someone standing there. I was sitting on a couch reading while waiting for a delivery and it was more like forcing myself to stare at the page. I'm not sure how much reading I got done! When I mentioned how creeped out I got to the paralegal she told me that she refused to be alone in the house! So I might be a wimp but at least I wasn't alone!
"Walter Baldwin rubbed his eyes and looked again, praying that everything would be back to normal. It wasn't."
From page 56 (about 14% on my Kindle edition)
"With the grape game over, Kit took her dinner and a glass of wine to her favorite room in the house, a small octagonal conservatory bay with five tall windows through which she could look out onto the front courtyard.
Despite the peaceful sounding 56 I have a feeling Kit isn't going to have to many peaceful moments in her favorite room!
So what do you think? Does murder in New Orleans sound appealing? Would you keep reading? And where is the creepiest place you've read (or tried to read)?
