First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, is where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.
Today I'm featuring my current read, Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, which I borrowed from the library.
Pinch myself and say I AM AWAKE once an hour.
Look at my hands. Count my fingers.
Look at clock (or watch), look away, look back.
Stay calm and focused.
Think of a door.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?The terse sentences of the opening convey a sense of urgency and danger. Who is the narrator? Where is he or she at the moment? I want to know more.
