Book Beginnings

This is a cool Friday Meme I've just discovered at Rose City Reader.

Share the fist sentence (or so) of the book you are reading along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.

My Book Beginning:

Humans were diggers and buriers, the cat thought, like dogs.
The day the girl came, the men were digging again in the woods below the house.

These are the first two sentences of Wild Things by Clay Carmichael. I plan to start the book tonight and all I can say is, I'm already intrigued...

Can't wait to read everyone else's Book Beginnings!

  1. Love the cat narrator! If only my tabbies would write a book!

    And she’d thought she held such a strong hand.”
