Friday Friyay: 'I Know You' by Claire McGowan
Book Beginnings is at home on Rose City Reader, hosted by Gilion Dumas, and Friday 56 at Freda's Voice, hosted by Freda. I'll also be joining the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.
What would you do if you found a dead body? Call the police? Check for a pulse? Flag down a passer-by for help, tearful but responsible, gulping in air?' p.1
Based on the blurb I think I can make a good guess that Rachel will not be doing any of the above. But I did wonder, while reading this, what I would do. I'd imagine I would call the police... but then what if I'm somewhere without cellphone reception? What if it's somewhere I don't want to stay and wait? What if it's dark? So yes, good questions right off the bat!F56:
'I had been screamed at before, of course, many times, both by strangers and people who knew me. But that was long ago. You get used to it, not being hated.' p.56
This made me feel genuinely bad for Rachel, even though I don't really know her yet. I'm curious to see where McGowan will take this book, whether Rachel will be completely redeemed or if there will be something that keeps us being suspicious of her.
This week's question was suggested by Julie over at Stepping Stones Book Reviews:
What is your favourite part about the book blogging community?
Ooh this is a great question Julie! I remember starting out with the blogging 11 years ago and I was so nervous initially because I was worried I'd get shouted down for my opinions. But that never happened! The book blogging community is actually very open and welcoming to all kinds of readers and opinions and ways of expressing yourself. Whichever approach you want to take to book blogging, I feel like you're welcomed by the rest of the community because we do all share a love of books, no matter what the genre! So I really enjoy that, being able to engage with so many different people and see so much passion being shared.
So that's me! Do you like the sound of I Know You? And what do you enjoy about the book blogging community?
