First, the Seventy-Seven Saturday Rules:
- Pick up a book (your current read, or the closest book to you, or your next read, etc)
- Turn to page 77
- Find a snippet, sentence or paragraph you like.
- Share it on your blog or Twitter or Instagram. Link back to AusYABloggers, using #77Saturday
And here’s the snippet I loved from p77 of Ninth House:
“Who are you? Alex would sometimes think, looking at another girl in a navy peacoat, pale face like the waning moon beneath a wool cap, ponytail lying like a dead animal over her shoulder. Who are you?”
I just started reading Ninth House today, and it honestly had me hooked (and CREEPED OUT!) by the end of the first chapters. There are some hints of some pretty heavy subject matter to come, and I’m loving the way the story is unfolding bit by bit. Definitely worth the hype so far!
