First Lines…

I wanted to try something I had seen someone else do:  Give the first line of most of the books I read in September.  This was sort of fun actually.

I got through 30 books:

  • Four graphic novels
  • Twelve audiobooks
  • Fourteen physical books

Since this is my first time doing this, I’m trying to figure out the format.  This month is going to be by star ratings.

Five Stars

Four Stars:


Three Stars:

  • Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist: “The day begins in the middle of the night.”
  • Juliet Immortal: “Tonight, he could have come through the door – the castello is quiet, even the servants asleep in their beds, and Nurse would have let him in – by he chooses the window, climbing through the tangle of night flowers, carrying petals in on his clothes.”
  • The House I Loved: “My beloved, I can hear them coming up our street.”
  • The Raven Boys: “Blue Sargent had forgotten how many times she’s been told that she would kill her true love.”
  • The Raven King: “Richard Gansey III had forgettn how many times he had been told he was destined for greatness.”
  • The Other Typist: “They said the typewriter would unsex us.”
  • Everything Everything
  • Must Love Dogs

Two Stars:

  • Sideways:The sun poured bright parallelograms of moot-swirling light through the Venetian blinds of my run down rent controlled house in Santa Monica.”

If any of these sound good, please check them out.  If you’ve read them, leave your comments below and let’s talk about them.

Happy Wednesday!
