Friday Linkups: Mandy
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:
When you start reading a novel, do you prefer to be plunged right into the action or do you prefer a slower more descriptive introduction to the plot and characters?
It depends on the book itself I think. If the plot is all action than I like leaping right in but if the book is more character driven or relies more on the atmosphere than a slower descriptive introduction works. The main thing for me is regardless of the speed of the start I'm immediately interested in the story!
On the outskirts of a pretty country village called St. Martin's Green, there stands a large, white house called St. Martin's Orphanage.
In the blurb it mentions that the Matron is kind to her but I like that it opens with pleasant imagery. So often orphanages in this kind of fiction are gloomy and miserable but this sounds pretty.
Sue spoke in a soft voice, "Mandy, shall we go to the old quarry tomorrow and play? It's Sunday and it would be fun."
The quarry does sound like a fun place to play though it does make me wonder just how much supervision these kids have as it doesn't sound very safe!
So what do you think? Keep reading?
