September 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.

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
“I didn’t realize he was a werewolf at first.”

Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs
” The wind was chill and the cold froze the ends of her toes.”

Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
“No one knew better than Walter Rice that the only safe place was away from other people.”

Never Apart by Romily Bernard
“I’m going to die again.”

September Wrap-Up



This month was a weird one for me. I got in a bit of a reading slump as well as being super busy with a new job. I didn’t feel like I read as much as I did. I did listen to 3 audiobooks this month which was wonderful! I have recently started in on the audiobook craze and I love being able to listen a little each night before I go to bed. I kind of failed on the Book of the Month and I think we are going to take a break for awhile because we have both been busy. I am hoping I can read a lot of Halloween themed books next month!
