First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros – March 22, 2016

I have gone kind of crazy and joined a bazillion Goodreads Challenges lately. I picked this book up because (1) I’ve wanted to try this series forever and (2) it fits a bunch of different challenges tasks… But what I wasn’t expecting was this intro! It hooked me immediately. I know this is not a new book (remember, I’m trying to focus on my own books…) and you’ve probably already read this one, but I’m curious if others were drawn by this intro like I was 🙂

  1. I’ve never gotten the nerve to read The Lovely Bones. The intro here reminds me of what that girl went through in that book. I did get the nerve to read the crime and enter the cellar. I must have made it pass the worse part. I remember hating the perpetrator. Now, I’ve talked myself into going to Heaven with the victim. I like the title of your book.

  2. I really want to read this one. I haven’t read anything by this author yet, but she continually receives great reviews. 🙂
