(Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.)

” I’ve always thought twelve was a solid, reasonable number to end at.”

– Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl 

I am not very far in the book and this is only from the second chapter. This is a sentence from Amy’s diary entry when she is talking about when she first met Nick. I really enjoy that Amy’s perspective is in the form of diary entries from the past!

  1. “He was eventually subdued, handcuffed, and sent to the hole.”

    –Avi Steinberg, Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian

    Such an amazing novel! Gritty, honest, and reflective. This sentence notes how quickly things change in the prison world. Must-read.

    Loving this idea! I’m currently reading Running the Books, by Avi Steinberg, and my third sentence is as follows:

    “He was eventually subdued, handcuffed, and sent to the hole.”

    Read on!


  3. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater page 132:

    “Adam slumped against the wall, life leaking from him.”
