Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?
This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that I am looking forward to:
August 2013 - William Morrow - Harper Collins
"Gwen could not have been more explicit at our first session: I was to cease reading books by or about women who killed themselves.
An unhealthy obsession, that's what my therapist called it, and I was inclined to agree with Gwen;s diagnosis. There was, after all, no other logical explanation for the string of events that brought me to her office. Ghosts do not exist. I resigned myself to the fact that what I'd seen and done was a consequence of a compromised mental state.
Like other writers before me, I had simply gone mad."
How does this one sound to you? I plan to start it soon.
The title and the cover are already something interesting... and reading the opening paragraph, I am very much hoping I can read this in the future.ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, I want to read more! Thanks for sharing....ReplyDelete
I don't usually do ghost stories, so I'm not quite sure if this one is for me.ReplyDelete
I have to be in a certain mood for ghost stories. I'm not sure I could articulate what that mood is though!ReplyDelete
Yes, this opening has me wanting to read more!!ReplyDelete
I'd keep reading. The opening and the cover are intriguing.ReplyDelete
Ooooh...keep reading! This one sounds fantastic!ReplyDelete
I am interested! I would keep reading.ReplyDelete
This book has been on my radar for a while now. And from the opening, it sounds like it is off to a good start!ReplyDelete
Ues, that one caught my interest already!ReplyDelete
That was a very interesting opening paragraph. I'd keep reading. I didn't have an intro this week because I'm still reading "Inferno", but I do have a teaser.ReplyDelete
I really like that beginning. It sets up the reader with a lot of questions as an incentive to keep reading for answers. I also like the tone of the storyteller.ReplyDelete
Great opening, and I doubt she's gone crazy.ReplyDelete
I like the beginning. Mine too deals with ghosts. :)ReplyDelete
Oh yes, love those Gothic ghost tales.ReplyDelete
On no, a writer who goes mad. Sounds too close to home. Love that cover. Here's MineReplyDelete
