Book Beginnings, The Friday 56 and Feature and Follow (5 June)

Book Beginnings is a meme hosted every Friday by Rose City Reader where you share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.  Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.
The Other MeMy Book Beginning is from The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson:
"I have no experience of killing anything. I take extra-long strides or sudden little hops to avoid stepping on insects that cross my path."

The Friday 56 is a meme hosted every Friday by Freda's Voice.
The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.

My Friday 56 is from The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson:
"Minutes later there was an explosion. A single crack: shacking in the suburban air, making every bird in the garden swoop high on beating wings."

Increase Blog Followers
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

The featured blog this week is The Darling Bookworm.

bloglovinGFCThis week’s Question:
How would you pitch to the biz to make your favorite book into a movie?

I have no idea... Probably just extreme fangirl and completely terrify them.

On another note, head over to my review of Taylor Dawn's Saving London where I also have a giveaway to win an ebook copy of Saving London.

  1. I'd be doing a lot of fangirling too. It'd be extremely embarrassing. Old follower!

    1. Yes I know! I freak myself out sometimes.

  2. It would be hilarious to see a group fangirling to a movie producer. They'd be so terrified they'd probably just give in.

    Check out my FF!

    1. Haha! This conjures up so many hilarious images in my head.

  3. Great answer- same here. I would be a rambling, incoherent mess.

  4. I do that too, unless it's a spider, and then all bets are off. LOL Such a lovely cover:)
