Friday Linkups: The Hexed
It's Friday Linkup time! I'm linking up with Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question is:
Do you ever get comments from authors when you have posted or tweeted your review?
Yes, though more frequently comments through twitter than here. It's always very exciting though slightly nerve wracking! Once I had a comment from an author thanking me for getting her book on a Sunday Post type post which was very exciting. I also love when a favorite author follows me on twitter.
(from the Prologue)
""Help me, Rocky! Help me!"
Craig Rockwell - Rocky to family and friends - was seventeen, a high school senior. It wasn't that he didn't like Melissa Wilson; he just wasn't interested the way she was interested"
(from Chapter 1)
"Every once in a while Devin Lyle couldn't help herself. People did such outrageous things sometimes that she just had to step in."
The prologue is a little perplexing. While I understand that Rocky might not be interested in Melissa I wonder why that's an issue here when she's calling for help. Also why is she calling for help? So many questions! As for the Chapter 1 I completely sympathize with Devin.
"There was a presence behind her, but she didn't know. She didn't see.
It was the killer.
For a moment, something glittered in the starlight.
My thoughts: Nothing particularly interesting other than things look very very bad for whoever she is. I haven't gotten to this part in the story yet so I'm not sure what's going to happen next.
So would you keep reading? Do you have an author whose books you collect but for some reason never seem to read?
