Friday Memes

This week I am posting from A Dark-Adapted Eye by Barbara Vine
Friday Book Beginnings is a weekly meme where we share the opening line of our current read. Book Beginnings is hosted by the Rose City Reader.

On the morning Vera died I woke up very early.

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

The ticking was muffled but still audible. The awful feeling came over me that I should never be able to sleep and that this would not be for one night only but many, many nights, a hundred perhaps.

I like the creepy feel it gave off.

Dripping faucets. Ticking clocks. Little things that can drive an insomniac crazy! I like the opening too. It definitely makes me want to find out more about Vera and about the narrator.
My Friday post is from ONLY SCANDAL WILL DO.
