The first line can make or break a reader’s interest. Just how well did the author pull you in to the story with their first sentence? To participate in this weekly book meme is extremely easy.
- Grab the book you are currently reading and open to the first page.
- Write down the first sentence in the first paragraph.
- Create a blog post with this information. (Make sure to include the title and the author of the book you are using. Even an ISBN helps!)
- Did this first sentence help draw you into the story? Why or why not?
"Locked in darkness that surrounded me like a coffin, there was nothing to distract me from my memories."
This is a really great first sentence! It makes what to keep reading to find out what's going to happen. The back summary makes the book sound so amazing, so I can't wait read more. I couldn't imagine being put in a jail cell awaiting my death. It would be so horrible and like the first sentence says, I wouldn't be able to stop thinking back on all my memories. I'm really surprised I read and reviewed 3 (4 soon) books this week. Usually, I only read and review one book a week, so this week was pretty good : D
What's your current book's first sentence?
