I have now found out that Vicky over at I’d Rather Be At The Beach is the creator of this weekly meme. Make sure to check out her blog!
This is a weekly meme I’m doing, I’ll either write down the first chapter or paragraph of a random book on my shelf. It doesn’t mean I have read it or going to read it any time soon. But it’s there ready and waiting for me!
BlackKnight: We’ve been playing chess for three months now.
Rogue2015: Very astute. Your turn.
BlackKnight: That’s a long time in the chess world. In fact, that’s a long time in the real world.
Rogue2015: Thank you for pointing that out. Why don’t you take your bishop out for a stroll? He can’t hide back there all day.
BlackKnight: He likes it back there. It’s strategy. Three months, Rogue.
Rogue2015: Why do you keep saying that?
BlackKnight: Because I think after that amount of time, I should know your real name.
Rogue2015: While you were busy reminiscing, I just won the game. Checkmate.
Rogue2015: I told you, you should have taken your bishop out.
BlackKnight: I’ll forgive you for beating me if you tell me your name.
Rogue2015: Double no. Do you want to play again or admit defeat?
BlackKnight: I just want your name.
The Book – Paper Girl by Cindy R. Wilson.
I haven’t left my house in over a year. My doctor says it’s social anxiety, but I know the only things that are safe are made of paper. My room is paper. My world is paper. Everything outside is fire. All it would take is one spark for me to burst into flames. So I stay inside. Where nothing can touch me.
Then my mom hires a tutor. Jackson. This boy I had a crush on before the world became too terrifying to live in. Jackson’s life is the complete opposite of mine, and I can tell he’s got secrets of his own. But he makes me feel things. Makes me want to try again. Makes me want to be brave. I can almost taste the outside world. But so many things could go wrong, and all it takes is one spark for everything I love to disappear…
