Friday Firsts: 10/2/2009

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!)
  • Did this first sentence help draw you into the story? Why or why not?
Alright, I am going to "first" you with a couple of books this week. Or a couple couple. Whatever.

On the first, I'm going to cheat and give you two lines:

Witch Child by Celia Rees

I am Mary. I am a witch.

Thirsty by M. T. Anderson

In the spring, there are vampires in the wind.

Sea Glass by Maria V. Snyder

Worry and dread clawed at my stomach.

The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

"Your Noise reveals you, Todd Hewitt!"

More full-length tidbits for Witch Child and Thirsty can be found in this week's Teaser Tuesday.
