Book Beginnings on Friday #1

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence. Join this meme HERE!

At the moment I'm reading 2 books simultaneously: "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss & "Breakfast in Bed" by Robin Kaye, so I decided to share the first sentences of these both books & the book I'm planning to read after I finish them, and that's "Firespell" by Chloe Neill. I just got it yesterday & I can't wait to read it, but I'm too caught up in The Name of the Wind, so it'll have to wait for a few days, but I think that the opening sentence of it is really great. So here they are:

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss:
"It was night again."
Breakfast in Bed by Robin Kaye:
"Rebecca Larsen shouldered open the door of her new Park Slope apartment and surveyed the wreckage."

Firespell by Chloe Neill:
"They were gathered around a conference table in a high-rise, eight men and women, no one under the age of sixty-five, all of them wealthy beyond measure."


  1. Both The Name of the Wind and Firespell look like books I'd enjoy. I agree with you about the first sentence of Firespell. I am going to have to add that one to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing!

  2. LOVE it!
    Love this feature.
    I might try it :)

  3. Wow - you are busy! I can't read more than one book at once. The Name of the Wind has such a beautiful cover - very intriguing.

    Here's mine:

  4. I am half way through Pastworld and it is getting hard to put down. You have some great finds here. I will have to check some of them out too.

  5. They are interesting open sentences, both seem to ber half way through some action already before the book has even started
