Book Beginnings on Friday - March 18th
How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. This weekly meme is hosted by A Few More Pages every Friday. Check out their blog for a list of other book beginnings.
A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
"Once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome. I know. I know. I don't blame you. A little while ago, I wouldn't have believed it myself. Little girls in red caps skipping around the forest? Awesome? I don't think so.
But then I started to read them. The real, Grimm ones. Very few little girls in red caps in those. Well there's one. But she gets eaten."
I think this is a great beginning. It makes you want to keep reading!
