Book Beginnings - 4/14/2017

 
*Please join Rose City Reader 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.  *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page.

My book beginnings is taken from I FOUND YOU by Lisa Jewell:
"Alice Lake lives in a house by the sea.  it is a tiny house, a coast guard's cottage, built more than three hundred years ago for people much smaller than her. The ceilings slope and bulge and her fourteen-year-old son needs to bow his head to get through the front door.  They were so little when she moved them here from London six years ago."

It is pretty good so far.

  2. The first paragraph sets the tone and reveals the setting, but I'm not sure where it's going. I'll have to come back for you review.

    I am reading a good book, thank you. :-)

    1. It was pretty good. Got somewhat intense and had odd characters, but I liked it.

  5. I keep seeing the same books pop up with a number of different bloggers. It's hard to keep those off my TBP list (but I'm trying!).
