Book Beginnings on Fridays 11/12/10

Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by A Few More Pages.  The rules are simple:

Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence.

"Get out,"  I pleaded.  "Get out of town for good.  That way we don't have to kill you." ~Hourglass by Claudia Gray
This beginning grabbed my attention right away!  Who needs to get out of town?  Why?  Who's is going to kill them and why if they don't get out of town?  So many questions to have answered!  I can't wait to finish the book to see what brought this on!


  1. You're right...that's a beginning that arouses my curiosity and makes me want to know more.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Oooh, that is a really intriguing opening!

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
