Book Beginnings on Friday: December 3


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 my first line comes from A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann.

Noelle pressed her back into the textured wall and tensed, her breathing fast and shallow.

I thought this was a rather good beginning to a book that gets more and more suspenseful as you get further in. Why is Noelle so tense? It sounds like she's panicking. A Rush of Wings is Christian Romantic Suspense, and I'm starting to think that Romantic Suspense is a genre I'd like to read more of, and that Kristen Heitzmann is an author I want to revisit. I've really enjoyed this one.

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.
