Murder Your Darlings by J. J. Murphy
Book Beginnings: “Dorothy Parker stared at the pair of motionless legs protruding from beneath the Algonquin Round table. This, she thought is what you get for showing up early.”
Friday 56: “She pulled him toward the exit.”
I think the beginning is a great beginning. It really hooks the reader into the story. The fifth line on page 56 is not quite as exciting, but that happens sometimes.
This is my book club’s read for August. I couldn’t wait until August to start the book. I’m on Chapter 3 and really enjoying it so far.
