Friday Memes

This week I am posting from my next read, Alanna Knight's Quest for a Killer

Friday Book Beginnings is a weekly meme where we share the opening line of our read. Book Beginnings is hosted by the Rose City Reader.

Autumn 1899

That sunny morning, as I stood at my kitchen door in Solomon's Tower, surveying the peaceful little garden, the swallows had left their ancient nesting places and another sound obliterated the raucous cries of corbies, eerie black shapes forever haunting the lofty crown of Arthur's Seat.


Friday 56 hosted @ Freda's Voice is a weekly Meme where we share an interesting snippet from page 56 of our current book.

And that, as fate would have it, was closer than I ever expected.

Sounds like an interesting read.

This is the first time I am participating in this meme -it's been fun seeing how different books start!

Have a good weekend!

Love this snippet! It is lyrical and has shades of unease, which work together quite well. I'm over from A to Z (Catherine Stine's Idea City). Cheers!
