Book Beginnings #21

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 In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware.

I am running.
I am running through moonlit woods, with branches tearing at my clothes and my feet catching in the snow-bowed bracken.
I am quite excited to start this one, it's set locally in a dark skies park in a place where you can only really get around on foot or in a 4x4, and I think it lends itself excellently to grip-lit. It'll probably mean I never want to walk there alone again but hey ho.

I like this beginning. I like how straight from the off, the pace is fast. I like how I already have questions: Who is chasing her? Why?

  1. This does sound like an entertaining, if scary, story. I like reading books set in places I know. I am spotlighting Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben this week. Happy reading!
