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 book I'm currently reading is Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey. I'm more than half way through into it already, and it's alright, It's a little slow and a tad boring right now...hope it gets better. Here is the first two sentences since the first one is so small:
"I opened my eyes. My legs were bound and my head ached."
These first couple sentences are very intriguing and made me interested in reading more. After reading those two sentences, I thought something else was happening but it was totally different in the book. It is a little boring right now, but I hope to finish it tomorrow and review it too. I meant to do it today, but I passed out when I got home for three hours...oops : )
What's your current book's first sentence?
