Book Beginnings On Friday: sWitch

Here’s a meme I thought I’d take part in as something different from Top Ten Tuesday and Booking Through Thursday. It’s hosted over at A Few More Pages so if you want to join in pop over there and link up. If you are joining in don’t forget to leave me a link as well so I can visit.

How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you’re reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence.

I only started reading sWitch by Scott Norton today, and the first two lines are;

Barbara Ducharme coughed her eyes full of stars as she dumped another tray of smoking cookies into the garbage bin. The charred contents safely deposited, she shut the lid and threw the tray into the sink.

I guess that could be taken as the start to any sort of book, which is something I really like about the beginning because if you don’t really know about the book it could head in any direction. For me though, I’ve read the synopsis and a couple of reviews on it, and I have a small idea of where it is headed which makes me want to read it more just out of curiosity to see what happens with this woman. Of course my twisted, far fetched imagination can make so much out of that, and its possible directions, that it’s not funny.

For fun I’m including the book trailer for it. Have a read of the two lines, then watch the trailer, read the two lines again and see if your opinion on what the story might be changes. Does it?

  2. Oops! I just re-checked your page for the birthday giveaway and noticed the ’25 words or less’ bit :S I went back to try to submit another, shorter entry before it closes tonight but the comment box wasn’t there. Am I allowed to submit another entry and where can I do it?


    • The comp is already over, hence no comment box, but there’s no need to worry Katherine. The 25 words or less was there more as a guide to stop some people being overzealous, but going over a little bit isn’t a problem 🙂
