Third Sentence Thursday
Hosted by: That’s What She Read
Description: Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.
Currently, I am reading The Mine, (Northwest Passage Book I), by John A. Heldt.
Here is a “snapshot” to pique your interest!
“We were just getting started. I am so angry with myself for squandering the summer. I should have spent more time with him and less time working on those stories. They mean nothing to me now…”
Ok, so I gave you more than just once sentence because I just can’t help myself. 🙂 This novel is excellent, and I look forward to writing my review!
Check out the book blurb and judge for yourself. Is this a book you would be interested in reading? Leave your thoughts below!
In May 2000, Joel Smith is a cocky, adventurous young man who sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior, days from graduation, enters an abandoned Montana mine, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity.
He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can’t use, money he can’t spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of swing dancing and a peacetime draft, Joel begins a new life as the nation drifts toward war. With the help of his 21-year-old trailblazing grandmother and her friends, he finds his place in a world he knew only from movies and books. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, Joel must decide whether to leave his new love in the past or choose a course that will alter their lives forever.
THE MINE follows a humbled man through a critical time in history as he adjusts to new surroundings and wrestles with the knowledge of things to come.
“The Mine” sounds fascinating.
This is not a novel, but it’s research about old Route 66, for my work in progress (The Guitar Mancer). So this is from “Ghost Towns of Rt 66” — “Five miles west of Glenrio are the scattered ruins that mark the site of Endee, founded as a supply center for area ranches, including the sprawling ND Ranch that began operation in 1882.” But the stars of the book are the beautiful photos of nearly forgotten places (and some vintage shots too). Hugs. 🙂
That is awesome! Thanks for sharing!
