Friday Linkups: In the Balance
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the 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:
Do you think a book's title is important?
Somewhat. A good title will make me pull a book of the shelf or look for the summary. A bad title won't prevent me from reading a book though.
the Caffeinated Book Reviewer it'd be the perfect time to pick this one up.
"Miss Maud Silver looked along the crowded platform and felt thankful that she herself was in a through carriage. She was very comfortable settled in her corner, with her back to the engine to avoid smuts and the magazine presented by her niece laid face downwards on the seat beside her."
Really I'm must glad to be seeing Maude Silver again! This sin't the most compelling of beginnings and I don't really know what a through carriage is but it does give you a little peek into her personality - very orderly and tidy.
My 56 from around 25%
"There was another of those sharply taken breaths. It may have represented a last attempt to curb a driven temper. If it was that, it failed. Alicia said with furious distinctness, "She can't make a job of anything, can she?"
I'm not anywhere close to this point so I have no idea what's going on but Alicia doesn't sound like a particularly nice person!
So what do you think? Keep reading? Any favorite comfort read authors?
