Friday Linkups: Behind the Attic Wall
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 years have you been blogging? Is there a story behind your blog's name?
I've technically been blogging about 2 years but I didn't really start trying to post every day and focusing on this particular blog until last March so really about a year and a half. In regards to the name there isn't much of a story. I had actually started another blog first that focused on food but thought it might be fun to have a book blog as well and the name just kind of came to me. Plus it's just true!
Today was the Anniversary. May fourteenth.
Last year they had all promised one another that they would meet again on this day and on every Anniversary, forever.
The man waiting at the station when she first stepped off the train was the tallest person she had ever seen.
The first line from the prologue sounds like it could go either happy or sinister. It's in italics which makes me think it's happening considerably before the rest of the story. I'm very curious to see what the anniversary is for. As for chapter 1'm thinking we've drifted to a child's perspective. I'm not sure if the man being so tall is a good thing or a bad thing!
A bare room, and yet everything about it suggested the presence of someone suddenly gone. A darkened rectangle of floor varnish outlined a rug now removed, and at the center of each wall hung a hook that held no picture.
I just love the visual of this passage. I can just picture this abandoned room and it makes me curious to know more.
So what do you think? Keep reading?
