Book Beginnings and Friday 56 – 11/29/13

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.

Silent City by Alex Segura

Silent City

Book Beginnings:

The microwave beep – announcing that her popcorn was done – startled Kathy Bentley for a second.  The noise was also enough to jolt her small gray cat, Nigel from her lap and tip over the little bit of white wine still residing in her glass.  Kathy sighed and plopped the glass on the table separating her couch from the television.  She paused her well-worn DVD of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and sauntered into the kitchen, where Nigel sat waiting, eyes wide, wondering if whatever was coming out  of the microwave could, just maybe, be for him.

Friday 56:

“I’m going to enjoy destroying you.”  Pete felt Contreras’s spittle hit the back of his neck as he closed his eyes, trying to shut out the pain.  What a failure.  What a disaster he had made of his life.  This was how it was going to end?
