First Chapter, First Paragraph #12: Lark Ascending by Meagan Spooner!!

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!

The book I'm reading this week released just yesterday, October 1st, but I got the ARC a while back as I won it from the author in a giveaway (THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN MEAGAN!!) and not wanting to read it too early, I ended up finding myself on release week and still not having read it!

 Lark Ascending by Meagan Spooner

My hands ached, my lower back screaming a protest. I longed to move, but even so much as a tiny shift to relieve my sore muscles might give away my position. I had the advantage up here, in this tree -- but moving would shake the branches, and the tiniest shiver of leaves would be all Oren needed to find me.

What do you think? Would you want to know more?
What are you reading right now?


  1. Oooo that was a good teaser Pili! I want to know who Oren is and why she doesn't want him to find her. MUST READ!!!

  2. I love that paragraph! Really intriguing! I didn't put much attention to this book before because I wasn't fan of the cover, but now I think I'll give it a try.
    Thanks for sharing, Pili!

  3. I liked this one a lot more than I liked the first two books in the series! I thought the first two were just okay. This one was cool though :D

  4. Yup! I want to know what the protagonist is hiding from now. Perhaps the blurb will give me a hint, way to exclude it from your post BTW. Was that intentional? ;) I'll be spending the weekend listening to Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones, and reading Otherworld Nights by Kelley Armstrong. Speaking of which... is it 5 PM yet??

  5. I thought the first book had beautiful writing! Hope you enjoy this one :)

  6. Oh man this reminds me how behind I am on this series. I really liked book 1 and even though I got an ARC of book 2 from NG (I think) I never got to it. Aaaaaah!!

  7. Great teaser Pili. <3 thank you for sharing about it :D I do own book one, but haven't read it yet. One day, though :D Hope you are loving it. <3

  8. I haven't tried this series and I've never really looked into it before. Maybe after I (finally) read These Broken Stars, I'll want to give these books a shot. :)

  9. Oooh I've got Skylark but I haven't read it yet (surprise surprise), keen to hear what you think of this book as I loved These Broken Stars. I like the writing from the little paragraph you showed us!


¡Muchas gracias por vuestros comentarios, leerlos me alegra el día!/ Thanks a lot for all your comments, reading them brightens my day!!
