FRIDAY 56 & Book Beginnings 20.05.16.
Goodmorning everyone. Sorry I didn’t do this Friday meme last week, but.. I didn’t even think about it last week. I had a day off with my husband and we spend the entire day working at our home to make it even more to our tastes. So yeah, I was so distracted that I completely forgot ! But well, this week I’m doing better and I will do this meme again !!
I didn’t really know which book to choose for this week. I just finished some books and didn’t know yet what to read next.. I’m currently much more in the mood for something nice and fluffy, because I’m having a hard time concentrating. I don’t want to think too much haha, so some contemporary romance is much more to my taste at the moment. That said, I’ve chosen something which I hope you might be interested in as well…
“Dusty, empty shoe boxes, stacked taller and wider than her slim body, wobbled as she pressed her back against them, tucking her bony knees into her chest.
Breathe. Just breathe. Breathe.
Wedged in the back of the dingy closet, she didn’t dare make a sound as she sucked her lower lip between her teeth. Focusing on forcing every grimy breath into her lungs, she felt tears well in her eyes.
Oh, gosh, she’d made such a big mistake, and Miss Becky was right. She was a bad girl.”
“Some would probably disagree, but I wasn’t completely naïve or sheltered. I’d grown up in a house where I saw a lot of stuff. The month I’d spent in the group home was also pretty educational. Guys would hang around outside the building, recruiting younger kids to run drugs. I’d seen older kids in that house pass out mid-conversation. In a matter of a month, I knew kids who simply vanished, lost to the streets. I also had a good idea why Jayden’s eyes were bloodshot yesterday, and a tinted-out vehicle rolling up into the parking lot probably wasn’t full of people selling Girl Scout cookies.”
I hope I made you a bit curious about this book.. ^^ Have a nice weekend.
