What Are You Reading Wednesday, #WAYRW, is a weekly feature over at It’s a Reading Thing. It is pretty simple to take part in, just answer the following three questions about the current book you are reading!
1.) What are you currently reading? – FirstLife by Gena Showalter
2.) Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
“Forget the next life. What about this one? Tell me why you’re here.” I motion to our illustrious cell with a tilt of my chin.
“My guardian sent me.” She strides to the second twin bed and sits, and there’s nothing graceful or feminine about her. “Told me to be a light.”
3.) Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
The world is an interesting concept. Your “firstlife,” is where you set up your next life, which is your eternity. You have to choose between two realms, one that is about light and one is about dark. They each have their merits. I like the idea of living beyond this life but there seems to be a lot of pressure to choose between the two. Everyone is telling you which to choose and it doesn’t seem like you get to make the choice for yourself. There is nothing I hate more than being told what to do and not being able to choose for myself. So I would say no, I’ll pass on this world.
