The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Slugs (Slugs #1) by Shaun Hutson

 

  

On Friday's I take part in two weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 

 
Happy Friday everyone! This week I'm spotlighting one of my Trope-ical Readathon books, Slugs (Slugs #1) by Shaun Hutson.  Look at that cover! Doesn't that look absolutely deranged?

Beginning:

The slug's eye stalks waved slowly as it moved towards the crimson lump on which several of its companions were already feeding.

56:

He let it idle for a moment, looking at the house which he'd just left, then, with a sign, he stuck it into first and pulled off.


Have you read this book or are you participating in this challenge?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
