Book Beginning: Glow


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.

Leave a link to your post.  If you don't have a blog, but want to participate, please leave a comment with your Book Beginning.



MY BOOK BEGINNING



No matter what trouble he stirs up, what law he breaks, Obidiah Bounds will always be her cool sip of hyssop nectar on a sunny day.
-- Glow by Jessica Maria Tuccelli. That's laying it on a bit thick, but it looks like this is going to be a great read.

This is my first book for the Southern Literature Reading Challenge.

Thanks go to intrepid book publicist, Mary Bisbee-Beek, for getting me an early copy of Glow.


Thanks go to Becky at Page Turners for starting this weekly event, and to Katy at A Few More Pages, who graciously hosted for a year and a half.

I have one book on each of my blogs. Here are the links to My Name Is Not Easy by Debby Dahl Edwardson and to Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts. Both were very good books but in very different ways.

Hmmmmmm . . .I have no idea why the Mr. Linky didn't show up. It is there now. I'll try to add everyone's links, if it lets me.

Sorry for the glitch!

Your BBF it's... I really don't know. I'd need something more.

Oh! I had no problems with Mr Linky.
Happy BBF to everyone! :D

Hi Gilion

This sounds like an intriguing and thoughtful story. There is great interest in US books and authors, over here in the UK right now, so 'Glow' is going on to my reading list, as a good place to start my quest.

Thanks for hosting and have a good weekend.

Interesting beginning! Wonder what trouble he is upto and how she can be her cool self!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh, it sounds like she has fallen for a bad boy. I like the sound of this one.

Great idea for a meme. I like it! Of course after reading yours, I'm wondering what hyssop nectar actually is.

Oh noes! I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting any traffic on my post today. I clicked on my own link (in the #1 slot) and it didn't find the url! I put it up myself this time (Something Missing) and hopefully I'll get a couple hots before the week-end is out!

Koala Bear Writer said...

That is a provocative opening! I liked the way she avoided cliche - or changed it just enough that it's unique to the character. :)

Bonnie Jacobs said...

I don't know how I forgot to come add my name to the Mister Linky after you posted this. Better late than never, I guess, even if I already have this week's set to post in the wee hours of Friday morning.

That's a good beginning for a book.
