Hi everyone! I’m really having fun with these book memes lately. This one is hosted by Hoarding Books, and all you have to do is post the first line of the book nearest to you, or any book you’re reading.
The one I decided to post about today was a book I got from the remainders table in a book sale, and I bought it on impulse just based on the first line. You’ll see what I mean. 🙂
Three Daughters of Eve
by Elif Shafak
It was an ordinary spring day in Istanbul, a long and leaden afternoon like so many others, when she discovered, with a hollowness in her stomach, that she was capable of killing someone.
Intriguing, right? I’m really excited to read this! I’m one chapter in and I have high hopes that this’ll be a good one.
Also, belated congratulations to Ms. Shafak, since her latest novel, 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World, was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize last year. Hopefully I can get a copy of that after reading Three Daughters of Eve.
Do you have any book on your TBR with a great opening line? Let me know in the comments, or head over here to see other first lines posted for this week!
