Book Beginnings #18

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 Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve.


Surely that was too much blood for anyone to lose.

This is the YA Shot Read-a-long for February and I'm probably about 5 chapters in so far and loving it. It's very different, a little bit gruesome, and I'm not sure where it's going yet, but I'm definitely enjoying it, and I'm finding it quite difficult to take my time. We're reading this over the whole month and all I want to do is finish it now!

As for this start? It's short and shocking, and starts the story with one heck of a bang. Who is bleeding? Why are they bleeding? Why is this character watching them bleed?

  2. That opening is a grabber! I don't enjoy books with gruesome scenes, so this one probably isn't for me.

  5. I agree that the first sentence is a good beginning and makes you want to read and know more. I also love the cover - it's kinda quirky...here's my Friday meme
