Description: Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the books we are reading, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Currently reading: City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare
“You’ve got to be kidding me,’ the bouncer said, folding his arms across his massive chest.”
So, there isn’t much to that first sentence. One of my favorite books of all time is The Secret History by Donna Tartt, and the reason that is because it has such an intriguing first paragraph. It’s gripping from the get-go. Of course, I’m not expecting a genius first sentence from every single book that I pick up, but I like something a little bit different.
This book is super entertaining. I pick it up, and I fly through a hundred or so pages no problem! I’ve just been really busy, otherwise I’m sure I would have finished it by now. It’s no literary gem or anything, but it’s a lot of fun to read.
Full review to come once I’m done reading! Stay tuned.
