#SixSentenceSunday - Week 6

Happy Mother's Day!

Today is also another #SixSentenceSunday which means another snippet of my WIP, Guardians. Check out the website for more information and to check out hundreds of other authors who participate in #SixSentenceSunday.



Alana wasn’t sure exactly what the purpose was in boxing these particular books up unless Evelyn decided she didn’t want them before she died. When Alana gave a cursory glance over the titles, they were definitely not the same genre of books that graced the shelves in the living room. These were more esoteric and supernatural in nature, dealing with subjects like the power of good and evil inherent in people, the soul, and the afterlife among others.

These were books that Alana never remembered Evelyn ever talking about or reading. She wasn’t around much after college so perhaps it was a subject her grandmother picked up during that time, but it still seemed so strange. Deciding to hold onto those books for awhile until she could go through them more thoroughly, she pushed them to the side. 


Thanks for reading!  What will your six sentences say?

  1. You can always learn a lot about someone by what kind of books they have.

  2. Hmm, it's quite a set up for all sorts of interesting adventures. I always find the sight of books in boxes, even my own which tend to over take my apartment if not boxed up, a little sad. They're meant to be displayed on shelves, or scattered across the floor, or haphazardly piled up on one side of my couch or bed.

    Well done!

    1. Thank you! I agree about where books should be. I have them all over the house, some still in boxes, but most on shelves or in a somewhat neat stack by my bed.
