Sorry everyone. I skipped doing this post last week because we had Easter dinner on Friday because my sister had to work on Easter. But I’m back this week with some great books!
- 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.

In honor of my cover reveal this morning, I’m choosing to do my Friday 56 on Shark Bait by Jenn Cooksey!
Me: k thx. ttfn. (Yeah, I still like Tigger…he’s bouncy, flouncy, trouncy, pouncy, fun-fun-fun-fun-FUN!) (And yeah, I’m a dork.)
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.
The basement hallways in King’s College of Medical Research were dark, even in the daytime.
At night they were like a grave.
Rats crawled through corridors that dripped with cold perspiration. The chill in the sunken rooms kept the specimens from rotting and numbed my own flesh, too, through the worn layers of my dress.
I love these sentences. So descriptive of a creepy, chilling place. I loved them so much that as soon as I read them, I knew they’d have to be my Book Beginning for today!
