Book Beginnings: March 18, 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.

I have finally started reading Born Under a Million Shadows by Andrea Busfield. I have had this book on my TBR shelf for so long and I keep putting other books in front of it. No more!

"My name is Fawad, and my mother tells me I was born under the shadow of the Taliban."

How can that not make you want to read this book?! I have read quite a few Afghanistan-based novels over the last year or so and have liked them all so now I am revved up to read this book. I'll be at a conference this weekend so am not sure how much reading I will get done....

I agree - that's a really riveting start! I have had this on my TBR for ever too!
