Book Beginnings on Friday

  Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme created by Becky at Page Turners, and is now hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

  My beginning is from Hand Me Down World by Lloyd Jones:

I was with her at the first hotel on the Arabian Sea.

  A simple sentence, yet one that creates some questions for the reader:  the identity of "her", why we need to know where the narrator encountered her.  Since it's also told in the first person, it's an indication that the story might be all about perception. 


  1. Just poppin' on by to say "Hi!" this Friday.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  2. Great first sentence! Her is mysterious, but so is the idea of the very first hotel on the Arabian Sea.

  3. And just how many hotels did he/she/they visit?

    Stopping by on Book Beginnings...Happy Friday!

  4. Hmmm... the first hotel on the Arabian Sea, eh? Perhaps you'll visit more hotels on the Arabian Sea in this book?

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings on Friday!


What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
