Friday Firsts- April 30, 2010

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 & author of the book you are using. Even an ISBN helps!)

"I buried my father the day after my seventeenth birthday."

  1. One of my currently favorite Dark tales - THE CHILD THIEF by BROM, starts with a Prologue. Now let me tell you his prologue and 1st Chapter rocks!

    1st sentence in Prologue: "It would happen again tonight: the really bad thing."

    1st sentence in Chapter 1: In a small corner of Prospect Park, in the borough of Brooklyn, New York, a thief lay hidden in the trees. This theif wasn't searching for an unattened purse, cell phone, or camera. This thief was looking for a child. (okay, I just had to write the first 3 sentences.)
