Bookish Friday

This week for Book Beginnings on Fridays and The Friday 56 I've selected Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys.

I really enjoyed Sepetys' last book for the teen/YA market called Between Shades of Gray (not to be confused with that other book with a very similar title).


Book Beginning: "My mother's a prostitute. Not the filthy, streetwalking kind. She's actually quite pretty, fairly well spoken, and has lovely clothes. But she sleeps with men for money or gifts, and according to the dictionary, that makes her a prostitute."

Page 56:  "The door to the shop flew open. "Get your hands off her!" Cokie ordered. He was carrying a tyre iron."



Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Today's challenge is to create spine poetry.

              Strangers,
      We need new names.
          Out of the easy,
            Every breath,
          When we wake -
          Winter damage!
            You are here.

  3. Very creative poem! And I like your choice of book for Book Beginnings and The Friday 56. I read Between Shades of Gray and really liked it. This new novel sounds good also, so I'll be adding it to my reading list. Here's my Friday post:

  4. Ooh, I like your poem. A lot better than mine, I have to admit ;) If someone came running at me with a tyre iron I'd find the closest door and slam it behind me as I run! I'm an old follower! Hop on over to my Friday post if you have the time :)

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger can be a frustrating experience for many.
