The Light

I loved this book! My review is HERE!
"He was falling. A moment earlier he had been standing on solid ground, near the edge of the seaside cliff that dropped sharply to wet black rocks below. Now here he was, his face turned toward the night sky and nothing beneath him but open air. His arms windmilled back and his legs pumped wildly as the memories of a life well lived flashed before his eyes with such speed and vividness it made him gasp."

"I'm a stalker. The good kind."

  2. Fantastic first sentences! The Kristan Higgins book looks fun. I loved Incarceron.

  3. Wow, all of those were great openings. Certainly gets you to want to read on.

    Mine's from The Turn of the Screw.

  4. Great openings! I have the books by Chima and the one by MacHale on my TBR stack already. Someday I'll see those opening sentences too. Happy reading!

  5. Wow, those were all great! The Blueberry Jam one really grabbed me, though.

    Here's mine:


  6. I've wanted to read Incarceron for a while, but now I'll have to check out the other four books as well! Great opening lines!
