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?
"THE EMAILS ALWAYS began the same way. Hi Auden!!"
This is a decent first sentence, but could have been a tad better. It got my attention and is kind of funny. Along for the Ride of course has a female main character who falls for a boy but then kinda blows it. I really like it and really just want to know it ends.
What's your current book's first sentence?
