Book Beginnings/ Friday 56 #7


  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
  • Find any sentence (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
  • Post it.

56%  from my Kindle:

Love hurts worse than getting slammed by a 250-pound linebacker



Please join me every Friday to share the first 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.

In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees. He’s around my age, in that space between child and man, maybe all of seventeen years old. I’m not sure how I know this.

My Thoughts

These sentences are from the Prologue, and they really sucked me in. They make me really curious to know who this boy is and why he’s standing in the trees. Also, how does she know how old he is?

    I have wanted to read Unearthly for awhile; however, I never got around to it. With that beginning, I need to! Thanks for sharing! Something about the simplicity is very striking.

    Here’s my book beginning:

    That’s a pretty good beginning! Thanks for posting it in the first BBOF of 2013.

    Sad 56. Really sad.

    It sounds like she’s or he’s talking about heartbreak, not love.

    Yes, sometimes love does hurt that much!

    I agree with Freda – that is sad. It’s not always like that though!
