Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. This week's "intro" is from an ARC of : The Invisible Ones; Stef Penney:
January 5, 2012 - Putnam
St. Luke's Hospital
"When I woke up, I remembered nothing--apart from one thing. And little enough of that: I remember that I was lying on my back while the woman was straddling me, grinding her hips against mine, I have a feeling it was embarrassingly quick; but then, it had been a while. The thing is, I remember how it felt, but not what anything looked like. When I try to picture her face, I can't. When I try to picture the surroundings, I can't. I can't picture anything at all. I try; I try really hard, because I'm worried.
After some time, one thing comes back to me: the taste of ashes."
What do you think? Curious for more?
(I haven't started this one yet, but I hope to in a few days)
