First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

Every Tuesday, Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea
 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 a review book titled, "Irish Lady." I chose to read this one because it takes place in Ireland and it has the magical element of blending the past with the present...let's hope it is a good read!

   Four centuries had passed and yet I had not forgotten the smell of charred wood nor the searing heat of a fire bent on destruction. I opened my eyes and saw the leap of flame against shadow, gutted dwellings, the silhouette of a church steeple outlined against an orange sky--an entire world engulfed in fire.

Would you continue reading this one
 based on the opening paragraph?


  1. Tough call - I love the cover and the title but it sounds like one of those weird (to me) undead books. I think I might give it a few more paragraphs.

  2. This sounds great! I would definitely keep reading! :):):):):):):):):):):)

  3. The intro really draws me in, and I'm curious about the fire. The cover is also very pretty.

  4. I'd keep reading - that opening paints quite a picture! Hope you're enjoying it!

  5. I would even read it just from your blurb! :--)

  6. I enjoyed this one. Hope you do too.

  7. I would keep fact I may just start reading it! I think I have it on my nook!

  8. she remembers four centuries? interesting. I would keep reading.

  9. I'm not sure about this one. It's not grabbing me right off the bat. I like the cover and the summary, so I'd probably read little bit more.

  10. Not sure about this one although I probably wouldn't have picked it up just based on the cover cause it reminds me of a romancey type book.

  11. O that's good. Makes me want to know about her/his past.

  12. Yep I'd keep reading, opening paragraph is intriguing and it's set in Ireland ~ enjoy!
