Book Beginnings and 56 ~ 3/1/13

Please join Rose City Reader and me every Friday 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. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.


My Current Read:

Firefly Island

"Firefly Island" by Lisa Wingate

The Book Beginning:

"There are times when life is a cursor on a blank page, blinking in a rhythm a bit like and electronic heartbeat, tapping out a question in three little words.  What.  Comes.  Next?"

My Thoughts:

Very true!


The 56th Page:

"I don't mean to kill the wedding bliss," he whispered out the side of his mouth."

My Thoughts:

He might not have meant to but he probably did!

Happy Friday!


  1. I agree, saying you don't mean to basically means you will! And the Beginning also sounds very true! I hope you continue enjoy reading 'Firefly Island' and thanks for sharing! Here's mine: Friday post

  5. If you have to say it you've ruined it! I really love that beginning sentence too. Looks like a good read.
