Book Beginnings: January 5, 2012


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 a bunch of books ahead of this one on my list to read, but I couldn't resist bumping this one to the top. I also love the cover.

"When she woke, she was red. Not flushed, not sunburned, but the solid, declarative red of a stop sign."

This is a retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's A Scarlett Letter (which I last read in high school, many years ago).
