Book Beginnings on Fridays - #ReadWithoutPrejudice

Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this meme is for you to 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. There's a linky list on the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.


This week my choice is intriguing, I don't know the title of the book, what it's about or even who the author is. It's due to be published by Hodder & Stoughton on 1st October 2016 and they have an online campaign called #readwithoutprejudice. I've only just been approved for a copy on Netgalley and will start reading it in a minute, I cannot wait to see what it's like.


The miracle happened on West Seventy-fourth Street, in the home where Mama worked. It was a big brownstone encircled by a wrought iron fence, and overlooking either side of the ornate door were gargoyles, their granite faces carved from my nightmares.



Book Description:



  1. The Read Without Prejudice is a fascinating concept. I wonder how it will affect your reading experience. I really like that beginning!

  2. Somehow I missed this - sounds very interesting. :)

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).
