Weekend Assignment #314: Summer Reading
Okay, yes, I know, it's still spring, but this is when I begin thinking about what kind of summer reading I might like to have on hand for those too-hot-to-clean days of summer. So, for this week's assignment, I want you to share with us the kind of summer reading you look forward to the most. Sci-fi? Horror? Political Thrillers? Romance? It's all good. Now, tell me more!
I'm pretty much a Sci-Fi and horror reader. I don't really stray from those two genres very often. A lot of that is out of fear of wasting my time. There is nothing worse, to me, buying a book and hating it from the start. Well, except maybe hating a book halfway through and getting pissed off at the end. That happened to me very recently by an author I normally like. I won't name him because this is a rare occurence. But, if it happens again, watch out!
Anyway, for the summertime, I think I tend to read horror more frequently. I'm not sure why. Maybe it has something to do with equating the winter weather with the coldness that is deep space. Though I doubt that since I just made it up.
The thing is, I haven't heard about anything that I want to read that is coming out soon. I have a book I'm reading now, and something in my Kindle app on my iPhone, but that is it. That's not good.
Extra Credit: Okay writers, get to work! Write me the opening paragraph, just (1) paragraph of a summer read you would like write yourself. Again, any genre works fine, have fun with it!
Corrine ran down the street, ignoring the pain from the knife still jammed into her thigh. With each step pain shot up her leg and twisted in her gut, but she couldn't stop. Not with Him behind her. She could hear him breathing and growling like a wild animal behind her. She wanted to look behind and see how close he was, but that would slow her down and he'd catch her. That couldn't happen. Instead Corrine put her head down and ran as fast as she could, hoping to put some distance between her and the crazy man.
Meh. Anyway, go to the new blog and check out the other entries for the week. They are probably better.
