Ay...what a busy week it has been for me! I have not been able to do much reading nor keep up with my blog. Well, I'm back doing the Friday Hops :)
Book Blogger Hop: May 10th -16th
This hop is hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Every week participants answer a question and then visit other blogs participating. The purpose of the hop is to give bloggers the chance to meet new bloggers, get to know one another better, and get new followers. This week's question is: Have you ever been to BEA, and if so, do you recommend attending? Any good
advice for first-time attendees? A: No, I have never been to BEA but I wish to go someday. I hear such great things from those that do go. The only big book event that I go to is Los Angeles Times' Festival of Books. I'm not sure if this festival is anything like BEA, but I love going there because of all the authors, books, free stuff, and entertainment.
Beginning: " 'All right, let's get the formalities over with before we begin.' Dean Nelson shifted through the paperwork scattered across the table. 'Patient identification number A692. Age, seventeen. Mother, unknown. Father, unknown. No living relatives.' He rubbed his bearded chin. 'Hmm, that's unfortunate. Name, Ashley --;' He flipped back through the case file. 'No last name.' "
Page 56 " 'What are you? Some kind of doctor?' The swollen, red skin throbbed and itched. Her pride was strong, but the fear of infection in a third-world country was stronger."
My thoughts: Well, the opening for sure grabbed my attention because it makes you believe that the main character is either crazy or just has major issues. I'm currently reading this for review and so far I'm enjoying it.
