Hangers

Over at Falling for Fiction, they're hosting round two of the Hookers and Hangers blog hop!


If you missed segment one, it was the hookers of chapters, those glamorous sentences that keep you from putting that book down and tell you you can pull through one more chapter. If you get the chance, go around to the other author blogs. They will not disappoint you!

Today, we're focusing on the hangers, the last sentence of the chapter where you sit there and think, "OMG!" and keep reading though it's 2am and you have to be up at 5am for work.

Hangers from After Elizabeth (YA Contemporary)  in no particular order:

In the place of sorrow, I found fury. Pure, unadulterated, uncontrollable, fury.


"I run alone," she states, re-hardening, and bolts.


Even though I'm going to get expelled. 


If I don't exist to Claire Davis, maybe I'm not real.


It was the beginning of the end. We never should have gone.


But, I find myself thinking, at least she's my neighbor.


Ready for this to be over, I checked my watch. We still had four minutes left of our ten minute run.


There would be a score to settle very, very soon.


Who is this girl?

And the last one I'll put up for this:

Then there are the mother fuckers, like Chad Higgins, who recognize the rope, and push people like Elizabeth off.

This was an awesome blog hop! Thanks Falling for Fiction! I hope you guys got to scope out the other entries, too!

Also, check out Monday's post for a contest happening here at The Submission Process!

  24. I really like the score settling one. But I have to go with this one for the bad words (I love bad words):

    Then there are the mother fuckers, like Chad Higgins, who recognize the rope, and push people like Elizabeth off.

Please know that if you comment and I don't respond, it's not because I don't love you. It's because I don't have wifi, but I do have a bad memory.
