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?

Wow, this is a hilarious first sentence! It totally got me attention and made me keep wanting to read on. This first sentence has to be my favorite out of all the other Friday Firsts sentences I've done. Something, Maybe sounds really good, and I can't wait to read more of the book.
What's your current book's first sentence?
