Tuesday Intro: 12th January 2016

imageAfter way too many weeks away, I’m linking up again with Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea who hosts a post every Tuesday for people to share the first chapter / paragraph of the book they are reading, or thinking of reading soon. I really enjoy these tasters when I read them on other blogs so wanted to join in.

This week, I’m reading Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll.  Here’s what it’s about…

imageHER PERFECT LIFE
IS A PERFECT LIE.

As a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani FaNelli endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. Now, with a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé, she’s this close to living the perfect life she’s worked so hard to achieve.

But Ani has a secret.

There’s something else buried in her past that still haunts her, something private and painful that threatens to bubble to the surface and destroy everything.

The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for—or, will it at long last, set Ani free?

And here’s how it starts…

I inspected the knife in my hand.

“That’s the Shun. Feel how light it is compared to the Wustoff?”

I pricked a finger on the blade’s witchy chin, testing. The handle was supposed to be moisture resistant, but it was quickly going humid in my grip.

“I think that design is better suited for someone of your stature”. I looked up at the sales associate, bracing for the word people always use to describe short girls  hungry to heat “thin”. “Petite”. He smiled like I should be flattered. Slender, elegant, graceful – now that’s a complement that might actually defang me.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?
