Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda’s Voice. I noticed these memes and thought it would be interesting to do both. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. This is the book I’m currently reading.
Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender
In her apartment high above the streets of Paris, Gabrielle Roux stood in front of the bathroom mirror, still wearing her daringly short purple dress and platform heels. The light glanced off of her golden hair as she brushed it and thought back to the glittering party she had just come home from.
There had been at least twenty girls there, and Gabrielle was sure that she had been the most beautiful and most admired. Six boys – at least one of whom had a girlfriend – begged for her phone number.
Of course, she wouldn’t text back any of the boys. They just weren’t good enough for someone like herself. After all, at only nineteen years old, she was already on an almost-famous model. She didn’t need to resort to stealing an ugly girl’s not-cute-enough-and-not-rich-enough boyfriend. Once her Italian Vogue cover came out, she would naturally start hanging out with people who were worth her time and attention.
When we arrived at the Catacombs, we walked into the small building and Madame Mitchell herded us all into a smaller room. I didn’t really see what was happening until we were right on top of the next phase of the attraction – a spiral staircase.
