Girl in the Shadows by Gwenda Bond

Prologue

I was waiting in the wings backstage at the Menagerie Hotel and Casino, preparing the equipment for my first stage illusion. Straitjacket, check. Oversized timer and mood-music speakers, check. And most important, transparent coffin, check. As I lay bound inside it, I’d press a button that would expel all the air in the coffin with a dramatic puff, for my audience’s benefit, and then I’d pull off a daring escape.

The coffin might sound morbid, but I wasn’t planning to die in it. I was planning to live.

Forget college or a normal future. I wanted to be a magician: the Miraculous Moira.

 

Saw this book on Amazon and the blurb aroused my curiosity. I purchased the eBook and I have already started reading it. Really excited and I hope to do a review when I have completed reading it.

That is all for today folks.

Until next post,

First Chapter, First Para Tuesday Intros

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!!!

I am here with the First Chapter First Para, Tuesday intros, hosted by I’d rather be at the Beach

Every Tuesday this meme is hosted to share the first paragraph or two of a book that yo are reading or planning to read soon.

Thus week it is a book from my TBR for November. It is the second book of the Selection Series by Kiera Cass – The Elite.

 

16248068The Angels air was quiet, and for a while I lay still, listening to the sound of Maxon’s breathing. It was getting harder and harder to catch him in a truly calm and happy moment, and I soaked up the time, grateful that he seemed to be at his best when he and I were alone.

Ever since the selection had been narrowed down to the six girls, he’d been more anxious than he was when the thirty five of us arrived in the first place. I guessed he thought he’d have more time to make his choices. And though it made me feel guilty to admit it, I knew I was the reason why he wished he did.

 

This is it for today folks!

I hope you enjoyed!

Until next post,

XOXOX

Sally Freeman, single mum and superwoman, to the rescue once again. 

‘Let me take those for you, love,’ I say to Mrs. Kapur, who is struggling up the first flight of stairs, a heavy bag of shopping from the local Save-It supermarket in each hand. 

‘Lift’s out again, Sally’ she mutters at me. ‘Little buggers. It’s the third time this week they’ve stuck up those buttons with chewy. I’ll give them a bloody clip round the ear if I catch them.’ 

Carole Matthews is one of my all time favorite authors, I have read so many of her books. I loved them all very much, and this time too, I picked one without hesitation. A review will be up soon, once I finish reading the book.
