This week's FF (hosted by Alison Can Read) question is:
Q: You are a matchmaker -- your goal, hook up two characters from two of your favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?
Oh help, I am rubbish at this. Ok, let me think. I have never read the 'Hunger Games', but after seeing the movie, I think that Katniss and Hermione could take on the world together. No one could compete with those two; they're both intelligent and loyal.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader and Friday 56 by Freda's Voice. This week I chose 'The Circular Staircase' by Mary Roberts Rinehart.
'This is the story of how a middle-aged spinster lost her mind, deserted her domestic gods in the city, took a furnished house for the summer out of town, and found herself involved in one of those mysterious crimes that keep our newspapers and detective agencies happy and prosperous.'I actually laughed, in a good way, when I read this first sentence. This promises to be a fun read with enough sarcasm and humour to not be too scary.
"Her prostration ever since, her--Aunt Ray, you don't think it was Gertrude who fell down the clothes chute?"I could only nod my head in a hopeless affirmative.The word prostration was too much for me to handle so I had to choose these sentences. It apparently means being extremely exhausted, which makes sense in the context and is nothing like what I first thought it said.
So, how about you?
