First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro is hosted by bibliophilebythesea.blogspot.co.uk. 

Write down either the first paragraph of a book your are currently reading / intending to read or read in the past and share with us. I do like a good opening!




My choice today is a book I received last week Casting Shadows Everywhere by L.T. Vargus. It is a 'coming of age/ YA book. This is the opening paragraph:


Killing someone is a lot harder than you'd imagine. Physically harder, I mean. On TV a guy strangles someone for like 5 seconds and the body slumps to the ground in a heap of dead just like that. In real life, it takes so long you wouldn't believe it. 


If that isn't an opening which draws you right in there, than I don't' know what is! Beautifully executed.






Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be reading. 

These are the rules  (taken directly from MizB's blog:)



• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I have chosen again the same book as above Casting Shadows Everywhere by L.T. Vargu
  1. I gazed out at the modular homes and tried to imagine how he must see    them, like rows of presents waiting under the tree.
  2. "There ain't no right or wrong. None of it means nothin'."

I'm now about 30% into the book. Happy reading everyone!
