First Chapter First Paragraph is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea
"The snap of the first shot breaks open the afternoon. I squeeze my eyes shut and wait for the second one, ears strained against the silence. Seven rifles have come together as one, in salute of Finn. With the second crack, I open my eyes and focus on the youngest of the riflemen, who stands on the end. His gloved hands had trembled as he'd lifted his rifle, but now they are steady, firm. A third shot. Rifles are brought back to the shoulders of their bearers, and the general bends, fingers brushing the grass, and picks up three of the gleaming spent shells. I stand there, stiff as the troopers, while my aunt cries softly beside me"
Would you keep reading?

  3. Ahhhh Scarlet and Insurgent were both on my list too - although I think Insurgent was a hype thing rather than a MUST HAVE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT buy.

    One day we'll get to them :)

  4. OMG...Lola and the Boy Next Door is really cute. If you read Anna and the French Kiss, you will love reading more about Anna and Etienne.

  5. Mistress of Rome sat on my shelf for over a year before I finally read it. When I did pick it up, I couldn't believe I had waited so long!

  6. You're ahead of me--Cinder and Divergent are still sitting on my shelves waiting for me to read.

    Like your First Paragraph entry--I would definitely read on to find out more.

Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
