Book Beginnings #12

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

I am currently reading Snowflakes on Silver Cove by Holly Martin.
Squeak. Squeak. Squeak. Squeak. Squeak. SqueakSqueak, SqueakSqueak, SqueakSqueak, SqueakSqueak, SqueakSqueak, SqueakSqueak, SqueakSqueakBang, SqueakSqueakBang, SqueakSqueakBang, SqueakSqueakBang, SqueakSqueakBang.

"Oh!"

SqueakSqueakBang.

"Oh!"

SqueakSqueakBang.

"OH!"

SqueakSqueakBang.

"OH!"

SqueakSqueakBang.

"OH GOD!"

BangBang.

"OH GOD!"

BangBangBangBang.

"OHHHHHH!"
Hahahahahahaha. What a freaking hilarious start. I hope that the rest of this is as funny! I felt like a right tit typing that out though, especially as the font is so big. The word "squeak" now just looks completely wrong to me.
 
I'm now into Day 2 of the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon and I'm loving the festive reads. This is the second White Cliff Bay book and I've read a lot by Holly Martin, so I know what I'm in for.

  1. Hi - I can imagine you were laughing while typing in all those 'squeaks'. I started laughing when we got to the "SqueakSqueakBang, SqueakSqueakBang". Hope you continue to enjoy this one. :)

  5. I love the cover for this - sounds like a fun book and the ho-ho-ho read-a-thon is new to me...I'm so behind this year on things - feel like I can barely keep up! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier!
