Book Beginnings on Friday: January 20, 2012

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted at A Few More Pages.

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 would like, 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 at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.

I am reading a few books, but let me share a couple of lines from my newest book, The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson.

The eyes of London were watching Claire Jenkins.
She didn’t notice them, of course.

Those are from the prologue, and I can’t help but share my favorite quote from the book so far from the protagonist, Rory:

I know you’re not supposed to judge people when you first meet them–but sometimes they give you lots of material to work with.

Hahahahahahahahaha, I love Maureen Johnson and I can tell I’m going to love Rory.

  1. Oh, neat meme! I don’t think I’ll officially participate, but I’ll share the first lines from Dune here: “A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct. This every sister of the Bene Gesserit knows.” I love the wording here, it gives me chills a little bit. I kind of wish the book were more about the Bene Gesserit in general–I’m getting a little tired of Paul and his Kwisatz Haderach specialness and just want to read about more ass-kicking women.
