Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where readers post the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book that they are reading or plan to read.
The Cabin at the End of the World; Paul Trembley
William Morrow/Harper Collins - 2018
Come and See
One - Wen
"The girl with the dark hair walks down the wooden front stairs and lowers herself into the yellowing lagoon of ankle-high grass. A warm breeze ripples through the blades, leaves, and crab-like petals of clover flowers. She studies the front yard, watching for the twitchy, mechanical motion and frantic jumps of grasshoppers. The glass jar cradled against her chest smells faintly of grape jelly and is sticky on the inside. She unscrews the aerated lid."
I admit this intro was pretty boring to me but, it isn't long before I felt terrified as I read. I'm about (1/3 through this one for the RIP 13 Challenge and enjoying it thus far).
