Friday Firsts

Friday Firsts is a weekly meme created and hosted by Allison at Well-Read Reviews.

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?
Be sure to go to Allison's blog (click the pic) and add your direct link to Mr. Linky.

And now for mine:

206 Bones by Kathy Reichs

Cold.  Numb.  Confused.  I opened my eyes.  To dark.  Black as arctic winter.  Am I dead?

This sentence definitely drew me in to the story.  How frightening to wake up to such circumstances and not know where you would wonder if she were dead.  Just those few simple words conjure up images of horrific possibilities.



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. This sounds good. I like Kathy Reichs. What a way to start a book

  2. I might do this next Friday. I'm just hoping the damn power doesn't go out again but at least I have my handy flashlight so I don't fall down the stairs which wouldn't be very fun. I do like Kathy Reichs. I need to go over to the library's website to put some books on hold.

  3. If I EVER finish it, you can read my review here! I think it will be a fast read has already engaged me!

    Bard Girl-you are so funny! And please don't fall down the stairs!

  4. That actually sounds very inviting for further reading! I haven't heard of this book before, but now it's something I am interested in reading. :)
