Hola! We're trying something new today called Book Beginnings.
Book Beginnings is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. Share the first sentence (or so) of a book you are currently reading, along with your initial thoughts and impressions about the sentence or book. Remember to include the title of the book and the author AND link up at the Rose City Reader.
Okay, so here's mine from Drowning Ruth by Christina Schwarz:
Ruth remembered drowning.My thoughts:
"That's impossible," Aunt Amanda said. "It must have been a dream".
But Ruth maintained that she had drowned, insisted on it for years, even after she should have known better.
I actually thought this was a lukewarm beginning. The very next sentence is way more captivating-- I would have started the book with it--but I don't think I'm allowed to share it...I'm about 60 pages into the book, and it's really good. I think it's about family secrets. Oh, how I love family secrets.
