Friday Memes 6/6

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
When you view someone's profile, what information do you like to see?

My Answer:
A little bit about them and their blog link(s)!


Hosted by: Rose City Reader

"Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name."

Can't breathe. Can't breathe.
He sucked in a hard breath. Fabric drew against his nostrils. Hot. Can't breathe. No air! He thrashed, searching for freedom, for air...I'm going to die! At that thought, he jerked.

My Thoughts
Such a powerful, attention grabbing start! Excuse me while I go read as much of this book as I can before my eyes betray me and I fall asleep!

I like to see a link of their site so I can easily pop over xx

That's quite a beginning! I love when a book grabs me from the beginning and I just don't want to put it down! I agree about what you're looking for in a profile. It always drives me crazy when I have to search for someone's active blog.

Oh God, that is definitely a strong start. I wonder whether it's a flashback, a flashforward or whether the author is really throwing the reader right in there! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

The author did a great job of creating tension in the opening. The short sentences made me feel as if I were gasping for air too!
In an author's profile, I like links that I can easily click on as well as some information about the person that I can relate to (hobbies, background, etc.)
