October 2017 Reads | First Lines

I decided that it would be fun to start a new feature to add the the wrap up of books I read every month. For me most of the time I pick up and look at books in the store it is the first lines that capture my attention and draw me in. It has always been intriguing to me the amount of thought that must go into those first words the author decides to but as the introduction to their work. The first lines are your first impression of the book.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
“Dimple couldn’t stop smiling.”

Night Film by Marisha Pessl
“Everyone has a Cordova story, whether they like it or not.”

Yesternight by Cat Winters
“I disembarked a train at the little log depot at Gordon Bay, Oregon, and a sudden force- a charging bull – immediately slammed me to the ground.”

The Uninvited by Cat Winters
“I admit, I had seen a ghost or two.”

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
“The greased-slicked hair us a dead giveaway- no pun intended.”
