First Chapter, First Paragraph is one of the two memes that I will be alternating on Thursdays in place of my Ink & Batter posts during the summer, when I won't be baking due to the heat!
I discovered this meme via the ladies of My Shelf Confessions, and it is hosted on Tuesdays by Bibliophile by the Sea. But since I already have my blog tours posts and Tell Me Tuesdays, I thought that it'd work best on Thursdays for me!
The idea of this meme/feature is quite self-explanatory from its name, we share the first paragraph of the first chapter of our current read! Quite a good teaser for others to read and see if they'd be intrigued!
This week I'm sharing a teaser of an ARC of one of the books that are now in limbo due to the Strange Chemistry close down, and it's the sequel of a book with one of the most unique main characters I've read, and I'm really really hoping we'll get this one as a proper finished book!
Crushed by Eliza Crewe
"Like most things, fun is better when it's stolen. A fortunate coincidence, considering that's probably the only kind I'll ever have again. Stupid Crusaders with their stupid rules. For a homicidial group, they're appallingly restrictive.
No, Meda, you can't leave campus.
No, Meda, you know we have a curfew.
No, Meda, you can't eat that guy."
What do you think? Would you want to know more?
What are you reading right now?
I LOVE THAT COVER!! :D And lol she wants to eat some guy? That sucks to be him... or maybe her... because she can't eat him. Ha!ReplyDelete
Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!
I'm quite excited to have time to sit with this book and read it, Meda is so uniquely entertaining to read!Delete
WHAT? Strange Chemistry closed down? NOOOOOOO! They had so many amazing books like this series and Stolen Songbird! Now I'm all stressed out:( I need to read this series though, I've heard so many fascinating things about Meda. Like apparently she eats people. O.o I hope we get a finished version of this book too Pili!ReplyDelete
I know the feeling Jenny! It was SO SAD NEWS!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get to continue the series somehow!!Delete
