#FirstLines #AmReading

First sentences of the books I read recently:

I was commenting on some blogs and ran into this post: http://www.readsandtreats.com/first-blog-all-about-it/
It inspired me to write this similar post.

“Why did I say yes?” — Y is for Yes by JR Vincente

“Great authors start out as dedicated readers.” — Writing Book Reviews as an Author by J Lenni Dorner

“Sia jumped from the roof and ran down the alley.” — The Fae Realm by Ronel Janse van Vuuren
(This book is a collection of stories. Here’s one more opening from it. )

“Good morning.”
“What do you know?”
The two novices watched each other warily as the master glared at them.
“That we’re not all born with the ability to throw fireballs.”

“January, the coldest month of winter. But today sun was showering its love and making it charming for Namita.” — Wheels of Time by Nidhi GS

“When I chose worldbuilding as my topic for the A to Z Blogging Challenge in 2014, I knew I was taking on quite a task, and I had no idea what a resource it would turn into!” — The A-Zs of Worldbuilding: Building a Fictional World From Scratch by Rebekah Loper

“Last night, you lashed out at me.” — Twisted Tales by Deborah A Stansil

“I am the queen of the planet Zala, and by all rights, everything here belongs to me.” — Sapo Saga by Tony Laplume

“Dying was not the worst part.” — They Called Me Wyatt by Natasha Tynes


  1. I love to read first lines. Then feel the pressure to come up with good ones of my own.
