First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 


First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, now hosted by Vicki at I'd Rather Be At The Beach, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon. 

Today I'm featuring an upcoming read, The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths.  The excerpt shared is from the hardcover edition I borrowed from the library.  

The Stranger Diaries 

Part the First
 Chapter 1
'If you'll permit me," said the Stranger, 'I'd like to tell you a story.  After all, it's a long journey and, by the look of those skies, we're not going to be leaving this carriage for some time.  So, why not pass the hours with some story-telling?  The perfect thing for a late October evening.
What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
Who is the Stranger?  I'm intrigued enough to settle into this book and have him/her tell me a story.

  1. I've read some good things about this one; enjoy. Here's my pick:

  2. Definitely sounds intriguing - as long as the Stranger is a good stroyteller, lol. See what Susan is featuring at Girl Who Reads

  3. I have read one book by this author, and I loved it. I've been meaning to read more and I like the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “AS YOU WISH”

  4. That did catch my attention. Hope it's good.
