Book Beginnings and the Firday 56 #20

Book Beginnings on Friday and The Friday 56 are weekly memes hosted by Rose City Reader and Freda's Voice.


Book Beginnings: Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. 

The Friday 56: Grab a book, turn to page 56 or 56% in you eReader. Find any sentence (not spoilery) and reflect on it if you want.

This week's snippets are from:

by Amy Lukavics


Something isn't right in this house. 

Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she and her best friend and cousin, Margaret, know the ancient hallways inside out. Or so they think . . .

When her beloved Aunt Penelope disappears while walking in the surrounding woods, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret, meanwhile, has been spending a LOT of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her mother's voice whispering from the walls.

Shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly and completely unravels. And then she begins hearing voices herself . . . 

Book Beginning:

Walter the cook killed himself in his little bedroom downstairs, just a few hours after saying good-night.

A stylish way to start a haunted house story...

The Friday 56:

Nobody's in the kitchen, which is a relief. I sigh and load the dishes into the dishwasher, and as I'm leaving, I can hear the sound of someone crying. Not again, I think. This is not happening again.


I don't think I'll read this book at night.

What are you reading right now? Are you enjoying it?
