Book beginnings on Friday: May 6th 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.

This is the beginning of the book I’m currently reading; The C-Word by Lisa Lynch.

The C-Word by Lisa Lynch

“On my lenghty ‘Things To Do Before I’m Thirty’ list (see Northern Lights, get pregnant, write book, lose stone, own Christian Louboutins), I hadn’t factored in beating breast cancer. But them’s the breaks.”

I was already interested in reading this book after reading about it, reading the blurb and looking at the cover, and the beginning of it certainly didn’t scare me away. I’m almost done, and it’s still very good.

    Here’s my beginning:
