First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros #1: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Hosted by Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea

This is where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.

I hate First Friday. It makes the village crowded and now, in the heat of high summer, that’s the last thing anyone wants. From my place in the shade it isn’t so bad but the stink of bodies, all sweating with the morning work, is enough to make milk curdle. The air shimmers with heat and humidity and even the puddles from yesterday’s storm are hot, swirling with rainbow streaks of oil and grease.
