Express Yourself #amreading First Sentence @VeronicaRoth @CrystalCollier1

Express Yourself weekly blog meme



Jan 16 – 20 What’s the first sentence of the book you’re currently reading?



“Hushflowers always bloomed when the night was longest.”
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth @VeronicaRoth



“Alexia was reasonably confident that exiting the carriage was the equivalent of stepping into Hell.”
Moonless by Crystal Collier @CrystalCollier1




My hardcover copy of Carve the Mark came last night in the mail. That first sentence is literally as far as I’ve gotten so far.

My e copy of Moonless I had stored on an ereader that broke. Being absentminded about anything not on my Google calendar (seriously, if Google ever dies, I may as well give up living in society and return to life in the forest), I kept forgetting to load this into my new android tablet. (Along with about 50 other ebook files.) BUT I finally managed to remember this, and have gone from 11% to 46% this week. It’s such a good story… more on that when I get around to writing a review.

What are you reading?

    Aw! Thanks for the kind words and the shout! I’ve been out of town and away from an internet connection or I would have said something sooner, but can I just say, you’re epic. =) Cheese for you!
