Book Beginnings on Friday: December 24, 2010

Sorry I didn't get this up earlier today! The hustle and bustle of the season (and my daughter's bout with the stomach flu) caught me off-guard.

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. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

This week, I'm reading Star Crossed by Elizabeth C. Bunce (ISBN 9780545136051). Here are the first couple of lines:

I couldn't think. My chest hurt from running, and I wasn't even sure I was in the right place.

This was an attention-grabbing beginning. It definitely has an air of desperation or fear to it. So far, this has been a pretty enjoyable read.

So, what is the first line of your current read, and how did you like it? Please leave the link to your specific post, not just to the front page of your blog.
