Friday Linkups: Iris and Ruby
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 much of your day is devoted to your blog and how much is devoted to reading?
I probably total up a couple of hours of reading a day - most of the reading at night after everyone has gone to bed. This of course drops considerably if I'm really tired or if it's been a crazy day. I try to spend about 2 hours blogging part of which is writing reviews and the other part is visiting other blogs. I may spend another hour or so replying to comments but that's generally at night if we're watching TV.
And even as I say the words aloud in the silent room and hear the whisper dying away in the shadows of the house, I realise that it's not true.
I love this beginning! It's so poignant and gives you such an understanding of the main character.
The kitchen was a warm, ordered space which she had planned and laid out in every detail.
Yet she felt superfluous in it.
I'm past this point so I know what's going on in this passage. This very much explains the mindset of the character that it's talking about. Seriously, I'm in love with Thomas's writing right now!
What do you think? Keep reading?
