Book Beginnings: February 25, 2011

This meme is hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages
How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading. 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.

Last night I started reading When the Stars Go Blue by Caridad Ferrer. It counts for my What's in a Name challenge since one of my themes is Dance.

"Turning, soaring, feeling the hum of the strings like a caress along my skin, the notes from the brass and woodwinds swirling around my body like a cape."

How wonderful is that?! A dancer in tune with the music and loving it!

Great imagery of how the music affects her (?--I get the sense it's a her. Maybe just because of the cover).

Kathy Martin said...

Thanks for sharing.

Bev--yes, it is a woman (I assumed so too), a ballerina to be specific. I am only a few pages in but it's interesting so far

Mostraum--How cool that only a couple lines can convince us to read a book. A nice cover doesn't hurt either

Kathy--So far, so good!

Laurel-Rain--Yes, I think this will be a book full of imagery and great visuals

Katy said...

Sounds lovely! And that cover is striking. Happy reading!

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!

That's a pretty sentence! I've not heard of this one, but I like the idea of dance as the main theme. Now I feel like watching Step Up!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Katy--It's funny, it does sound lovely and I am not in the mood for lovely so I hope it gets a little more "solid", if that makes any sense

Aths--I haven't ever read a book with dance as a central theme, it's one of the reasons I chose it for the challenge. Ah, Step Up... we've seen all three!
