Book Beginnings #37

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.

For Friday 56, Freda's Voice asks you to turn to Page 56 in your book or 56% on your e-reader and pick a sentence. This is my first time

I am currently reading Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.
On the second Sabbat of Twelthmoon, in the city of Weep, a girl fell from the sky.
It's definitely off to an intriguing start. Who is this girl, why did she fall from the sky, how does one fall from the sky..?

I am just starting this now and have read only the prologue, and I had forgotten how much I loved Laini Taylor's writing. I feel like this author's writing can take a while to get used to, but once you're in you're hooked.
Without his books, Lazlo felt as though a vital link to his dream had been cut. The Unseen City has never seemed more distant, or more out of reach.

If it mentions books then it's gotta be good, right?

There has been so much hype around this book, it is everywhere, and I'm sure it will not disappoint.


  1. This one is new to me. I've never read the author. The snippets sound intriguing though. This week I am reading The Inconceivable Life of Quinn by Marianna Baer. Happy reading!

  2. Hmm...this could be good. Got me curious now. And an interesting cover too.

  3. I'm not a fan of fantasies, but I know how cut off I feel without my books! I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine . . .

  4. Right, what would we do without books?

  5. Great excerpt! I want to know more now. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “BEACH BREEZE”

  6. Sounds lovely! Happy weekend!

  7. That is quite a startling first line. As you say, I want to know what is going on. The cover is also intriguing.

  8. I have this book on hold at my local library. Enjoy your current read.
