The first line can make or break a reader’s interest. Just how well did the author pull you in to the story with their first sentence? To participate in this weekly book meme is extremely easy.

Grab the book you are currently reading and open to the first page.
Write down the first sentence in the first paragraph.
Create a blog post with this information. (Make sure to include the title & author of the book you are using. Even an ISBN helps!)
Did this first sentence help draw you into the story? Why or why not?

It was nearing midnight and the Prime Minister was sitting alone in his office, reading a long memo that was slipping through his brain without leaving the slightest trace of meaning behind. ~ Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K Rowling
Well I have to say I just picked up the book after finnishing another, so that I could post this Meme. And honestly it has pulled me in. I am curious what the Prime Minister is reading, although I imagine it might be about magic. But there is only one way I can be certain. And that is to keep reading.

    I had the opposite experience with the first in THBP. I wanted it to open with Harry! But I guess it's one of those novels that has such a good rep already that it doesn't have to be an absolutely AMAZING opener. Everyone will continue to read anyway! 🙂

    Thank you for participating in Friday Firsts! 🙂

    I loved the way that book began. I was sad that it was not included in the film.
