First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

fistchap

First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea. We share the first paragraph ( or a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.

Here’s mine:

“So this was freedom. The canoe went with the river’s tide, water bumping against the bow. Dirk Van Dyck looked at the little girl and wondered: Was this journey a terrible mistake?”

This is from New York by Edward Rutherfurd. This book has been sitting on my shelf for a long time , and now I am eager to start it. I read a lot of romance novels, but lately I find myself wanting to experience something different. I believe this novel will be a good one.

What about you? What first paragraph you’d like to share?

    “A single finger slowly traces the curvature of my spine, leaving a trail of goose bumps in its wake. Despite my best attempt at pretending to be asleep, I tremble at the feather-light touch, unable to contain my reaction.”
    This is the first paragraph of “Monster in His Eyes” by J. M. Darhower

    “The warehouse was an abandoned shell. Empty so long that parts of the roof had caved in, most of the windows were gone, and nature had started to reclaim the concrete and cement, with bits of green taking root in the building’s cracks. Proof of the resilience of life, even in the worst of circumstances.” ~ Hard to Let Go by Laura Kaye
