Friday Book Share
With the weekend approaching it’s the perfect time to seek out new books to read, so I’ve created a Friday Book Share game to help search for that ideal novel.
Anyone can have a go – all you need to do is answer the following questions based on a book you are currently reading/finished reading this week and use the hashtag #FridayBookShare
First line of the book.
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
Introduce the main character using only three words.

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
Your favourite line/scene.
Today (Friday 1st July) is #IndiePrideDay so I’m using the Friday Book Share game to celebrate the first book in my YA trilogy, Guardians of the Dead. #indiebooksbeseen
First line – Her lungs threatened to burst as she ran, but she pushed herself to keep moving regardless of the pain in her joints.
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb –
One girl holds the key to an ancient pact that could destroy the world…
When sixteen-year-old Amber Noble’s dreams begin to weave into her reality, she turns to the mysterious Connor for help. His links to the supernatural world uncover a chilling truth about her hometown and a pact that must be re-paid with blood.
As her father alienates her, and the Guardians take her best friend, her true destiny unfolds, and she begins a quest that will see her past collide with her present.
Drawn deeper into the world of witchcraft and faeries, it is only at the end of her journey that she realises how much she could lose.
Introduce the main character – Amber is strong, loyal, and brave.
Delightful Design –
Audience appeal – Perfect for fans of YA fantasy.
Your favourite line/scene –
His body jerked uncontrollably and he let out a strangled cry, his head rolled to the side and his fingers fell from her grasp as his body grew limp in her arms.
A sudden overwhelming rage swept through her as she carefully lowered his head to the floor. She stood to face General Loso, her eyes cold and hard. The energy rose up from her feet, pouring into every fibre of her body until it vibrated through to her bones, stronger than she had ever felt it before. With her hands held out to the side she channelled all her power to her sacral chakra, deep in her belly. She could sense her own emotions beginning to take over: her rage, grief and anger coursing through her with an unquestionable thirst for revenge.
The ground around them began to shake as she pulled even more power from the earth. Craters opened up around them and hot molten lava spewed out of the tops, the sky rumbled and fiery bolts of lightning cracked above them.
‘How are you doing this?’ Loso shouted above the noise, his face showing the first signs of fear as the ground beneath him bucked and twisted. ‘You’re just a girl.’
