Book Beginnings on Friday: September 30, 2011

How to participate: There's nothing quite like the anticipation that comes from cracking open a book for the first time! 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 would like, 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 at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.

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

I'm in the process of reading several books right now, so I'll share the beginning of the one I've been working on the longest (because it is longer than my usual reads at over 600 pages). The book is The Time In Between by Maria DueƱas. Here is the first line:

A typewriter shattered my destiny.

A short beginning and yet I cannot help but wonder how something as benign as a typewriter could change someone's life like that. So even though it is a fairly uneventful first line, it definitely piqued my curiosity.

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.
