Friday Linkups: Jaded
It's Friday Linkup time! I'm linking up with Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Blogger Hop Question:
Do you feel comfortable enough approaching a stranger when you see he/she is reading a book to ask what they are reading?
I probably wouldn't go up and ask a total stranger what they're reading but if they're reading a print book I definitely try and check out the cover and sometimes not so subtly!
"My heart is frost bitten. The ache in my chest is so pronounced it hurts to breathe."
I like the imagery that Gillespie conjures up with these words. The setting just seems so cold and bleak and I know just how she feels.
The 56 (well kind of. Taken from 11% which is approximately page 56);
"And of course the guards are still here. Some will remain at Samsara and others will accompany Rust and Saffron at the cemetery."
I'm still seeing a very cold and bleak world here. I'm wondering why there are guards and why it's so accepted that they're there.
So what do you think? Keep reading?
