Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

But of more immediate importance was the dark blue van that was skidding, tires locked and squealing against the brakes, spinning wildly across the ice of the parking lot. It was going to hit the back corner of my truck, and I was standing between them. I didn’t even have time to close my eyes.



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.

Daynight by Megan Thomason

The moment the perfectly styled, blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl awakens to the sight of her own dead body, she swears and slaps her corpse across the face.

My Thoughts

I had to reread this sentence a couple times before I realized what was going on. This was in the Prologue, so I’m still not sure what was happening, but it certainly has some creepiness going for it!

    Never read the Twilight series but saw all the films…. don’t think I’d read the books now….
    Daynight definitely sounds creepy. But I like creepy.

      The books are way better than the movies, but I’m not sure you could get into them now. I personally love them! I’m not very far into Daynight yet. It’s almost part dystopian/part sci-fi, though the author doesn’t call it that. Weird.
