I've noticed that First Line Friday posts are all I have been, well, posting for a few weeks now, with far less reviews. Maybe its because I'm not posting reviews of most of the titles I listen to as audiobooks, or that reading time is sometimes limited I seem to keep waking up late, which cuts out some of the time I would otherwise spend reading of an early morning.
Perhaps I need to buy that LED light to stick to the shelf above my bed, instead of rolling over and going back to sleep now that the mornings have grown dark with the onset of British Autumn.
Anyway, today I am featuring the first line of the book I am about to start reading (or more likely listening to most of on Audible), which I picked as it was set in the Victorian Period, and and I rather like this stories those with a Gothic bent or some underlying mystery. I heard about the novel months ago, waited for it to appear on Netgalley then had to wait several days before finally being approved.
The first lines read:
London, England 1861
"Well Miss Harcourt. Are you, or are you not, Nathaniel Droll?"
Happy reading and have a good weekend, untul next time. Hopefully I will get more review up in the intervening days.
