posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book
she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s).
Feel free to grab the banner and play along!
My selection this week is from These Girls, a review book that I'm really excited about reading because this is my first experience with author, Sarah Pekkanen.
"Hold it!" A voice commanded.
The elevator was already crowded- at a few minutes before 10:00 a.m., everyone was heading for the upper floors of the Manhattan skyscraper that housed office space for a half dozen glossy magazines- but Cate Sommers instinctively reached out and prevented the doors from closing.
The air cracled with energy as Trey Watkins stepped inside, and Cate saw one young woman nudge another. Trey wore faded jeans, hiking boots, a green henley shirt, and his cheeks were slightly windburned, as if he'd just finished scaling a mountain. Which he probably had, right before he'd started a fire by rubbing two sticks together, and, Cate thought as she managed to avoid rolling her eyes, possibly shimmied up a tres to save a stranded bear cub.
Would you continue reading this one
based on the opening paragraph?
