Book beginnings on Friday.


This is a new meme for me, sounds interesting I'm going to join, how about you?

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. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

Here are my lines---

'In a way they were born to be aunts. Emancipated, eccentric and brave, the Norchester sisters lived in a tall grey house in Bloomsbury, within a stone's throw of the British Museum.'
From 'A Song of Summer' by Eva Ibbotson.

These lines made me think that these characters were going to be independant women , perhaps a little out of the ordinary but adventerous.

Check out this site for more first liners.

I love these first lines! made to be aunts... emancipated, eccentric and brave! I can think of other ways that aunts might be stereotypically portrayed, but I like this way best. It reminds me of the movie, The Triplets of Bellville, somehow.
