Friday Linkups: Whispers and Lies
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:
How many posts do you publish per week? How many of them are reviews?
Since around February of 2014 I've published 7 posts per week. While it does change sometimes normally 4 of them (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday) are reviews. Tuesday is Top Ten Tuesday, Friday is this group of memes, and Sunday is Sunday Post.
This week's book is Whispers and Lies from Joy Fielding, an author I read a couple of books from years and years ago and then kind of forgot about her. Not too long ago Rita , another Blogger friend reviewed one of her books and got me thinking of Fielding again so when I was at the library a few days later I picked up one of her books. I haven't gotten very far but so far I'm really enjoying it. It's so fast paced and I can't wait to find out what happens next!
"She said her name was Alison Simms.
The name tumbled slowly, almost languorously, from her lips, the way honey slides from the blade of a knife."
I'm going to take a guess from the way that first sentence is written that her name is not in fact Alison Simms.
It took half a second for the name to register on my brain. "Erica Hollander is no longer my tenant," I said coolly, my eyes following several wayward trickles of water as they ran down my legs to the ivory carpet. Anxiety simultaneously trickled through my insides."
So now in addition to Alison Simms who does not sound like she is actually Alison Simms we have Erica Hollander who also sounds like she's up to no good. Or possibly she's buried under the floorboards? I don't know but I want to find out!
So what do you think? Would you keep reading? Do you have any authors whose books you used to enjoy that you just quit reading for no real reason?
