My life fell apart when I was sixteen. Papa died. He had such a strong heart, yet he died. Was it the heat smoke from his blacksmith shop? It's true that nothing could take him from his work, his art. He loved to make the metal bend, to obey him. But his work only seemed to strengthen him; he was so happy in his shop. So what was it that that killed him? To this day I can't be sure. I hope it had nothing to do with me or what I did back then.
I'm using the entire first paragraph today...You want to know how Papa died and what 'I' did in the past. I'm a little over 50 pages into this book and I love it (right now anyways). Fifty pages and this story has already touched my little black heart, haha. It made me feel a certain way while I was reading, and when I put it down I couldn't stop thinking about the things that happened and might happen the down the line...I want to say more, but I also don't want to give anything away right now.
I'm reading Who Fears Death for A More Diverse Universe Blog Tour hosted by Aarti at BookLust. It's my first blog tour, so I'm kind of excited. Doubly excited because of what the tour is about and for the great book I'm reading for it. I think it might be too late to sign-up for the blog tour, but I think everyone should stop by all the blogs that will be participating and see what awesome books they read.
