First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro is hosted by Diane at Bibliophile By The Sea.

This is how it works: Write down either the first paragraph of a book your are currently reading / intending to read or read in the past and share with us. I do like a good opening!



I have signed up for Mental Health Awareness Month at Leah's blog Uncorked Thoughts.

As part of this, I am reading The Shock After the Fall by Nathan Filer:


First Chapter:


I should say that I am not a nice person. Sometimes I try to be, but often I'm not. So when it was my turn to cover my eyes and count to a hundred - I cheated.

I stood at the spot where you had to stand when it was your turn to count, which was beside the recycling bins next to the shop selling disposable barbecues and spare tent pegs. And near to there is a small patch of overgrown grass, tucked away behind a water tap.
Except I don't remember standing there. Not really. You don't always remember the details like that, do you? You don't remember if you were beside the recycling bins, or further up the path near to the shower blocks and whether actually the water tap is up there? 





Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be reading. 
These are the rules  :
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


From The Shock after the Fall by Nathan Filer:

"The next thing I knew Mum was turning up the volume of the radio, so I wouldn't hear her crying."


I haven't started the book yet, but hoping to do so this week. My daughter and me are going to read it, maybe me first because I'm a faster reader than her. Sorry Ruby :)


Happy reading my bookish friends
