Book beginnings on Friday: Feb.25th 2011
Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme sponsored by Katy at A Few More Pages. Here’s what you do: share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments section . Include the title and author so we know what you’re reading. Then, if you are so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and if you liked or did not like that sentence. Link-up each week at Katy’s place.
My beginning this week comes from The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
He began his new life standing up, surrounded by cold darkness and stale, dusty air.
I’ve long since decided that I would eventually get around to reading The Maze Runner. After that decision was made the book has popped up as a nominee for all sorts of different awards, so I guess it’s about time I got started. So far I’ve only read the first line, and it’s intriguing. I have a few pages in another book to finish and then I’ll get straight back to this one.
